Weekend Watch #39 – The Camino Song
Mark Shea walked the Camino Frances way back in 2004. His Camino was caught on camera from St. Jean and he was one of the first to post such video on YouTube. His documentary 'The Way' has well over a million hits to this day. Just before this New Year, he asked pilgrims to send... Continue Reading →
Home..but still on the Way..
My feet are in Dublin but my mind has been left somewhere between Leon and Astorga on the dusty trail. Sigh! All who I have met, broke bread and shared stories with are close to Santiago at this stage. How I wish I had continued my journey with them. But alas!, I must return to... Continue Reading →
Another passion of mine…
I'll let you into a little secret.. In another lifetime..well, not too long ago, I used to enjoy putting one word after the other to create sentences. From the age of 12 right up to my mid-20's, I got great enjoyment out of writing and playing guitar on a regular basis. It was a pretty fun... Continue Reading →

Camino 2016 – Day 6-7 – To Santiago & Home – September 7th & 8th It had to come to an end.... I had a restless sleep the previous night. A large group came in to the dorm at 3am from gathering at the cape. I didn't blame them though. It's the last night. Maybe if I... Continue Reading →
A little bit of Music?
Imagine the scene.. You have left your albergue, it is 7am in the morning and you are setting off alone. The sun has risen behind you and you have 7 hours of walking ahead of you. Sounds great, doesn't it? You look around and there are one or two other pilgrims behind you, while there... Continue Reading →
Weekend Watch #28 – Camino na Saile (Camino by Sea)
This Weekend Watch is a little bit special. The reason for that is because it is not something you come across regularly. The Camino is usually walked and cycled but in this case, a group of men from Ireland decided to embark on the journey to Santiago by boat; in a traditional Irish currach. They... Continue Reading →
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=De6GrveAjzo I didn't pay much attention to music during my time in Spain. It didn't bother me. Before I left, I spent hours working on a playlist on my iPhone. I had this romantic image of me starting out a walk at 5am while listening to Sigur Ros or Eddie Vedder watching the sun come... Continue Reading →
At long last..
It has finally happened folks! I have managed to purchase a ticket to see Sigur Ros when they play in Dublin in November. Ever since I heard them first in 2002 on a radio at half past midnight, I have been eager to see them. Unfortunately, their shows seem to sell out very very quickly.... Continue Reading →
