Weekend Watch #43 – Dan Mullins & Tom Quinlan

Wow. My last Weekend Watch was posted on March 14th. To make up for lost time, here are 2 videos with the Camino theme. The first is from Camino podcaster and musician Dan Mullins who has released this song “Somewhere along the Way”. Much of the footage was shot along the Camino Frances. See if you recognise where. The second video was produced by Irish filmmaker Tom Quinlan. He walked the final week into Santiago in May 2017 and he recorded his experiences. The end result is effective.

(Mid) Week Watch – Maggie’s 4 Caminos..

Maggie Woodward is no stranger to this blog and has contributed a number of times. She regularly posts on her own blog – Trepidatious traveller, and I would encourage any future pilgrim to read through her posts for information.

This April, Maggie walked near to 1000km through 4 Caminos – no mean feat. The 4 routes were the Camino Madrid from Madrid to Sahagun, Camino San Salvador from Leon to Oviedo, Camino Primitivo from Oviedo to Santiago and finally on to the coast on the Camino Finisterre. You can read daily updates on her blog.

However, Maggie put together a video on YouTube showing how she got on. Great viewing and some of these routes are the future.

Don’t Stop Walking – Season Two

I’m a big fan of Andrew Suzuki’s work on the Camino de Santiago. His two series – Don’t Stop Walking and Beyond The Way have been massive hits over on Facebook. We have already been treated to Season One of Don’t Stop Walking, which is a pilgrim’s guide to the Camino de Santiago. A handy digest of do’s and don’t’s which will surely point you in the right direction during your planning. If you haven’t seen Season One – go do so now!! I’ll wait until you finish….

Done?

Ok 🙂

Now you are ready to start watching Season Two. Episode One contains a top ten list of essential foods you need to try while in Spain and Portugal (No, pulpo though!!), while episode Two breaks down the top ten extremely small items that you must bring with you on your Camino. What I like about his videos is his sense of humour, you are guaranteed to have a smile on your face at the end. Plus, you will be eager to watch the next episode!!

More information can be found on his website: www.beyondtheway.net.

Weekend Watch #38 – Anna Schleicher’s Camino in 2016

Ok it’s not the weekend just yet, but I thought it’s a great time to start posting some great Camino videos from YouTube. This one is less than 2 months old and has already over 8,000 views. Hopefully one day I will be able to post a video as half as good as this. Props to Anna. She seems to have had a blast.
