This is my first post of 2022, a first of many, I hope. I hope you all had a good break and enjoyed the New Year. To be quite honest, I have never been fond of New Year’s Eve. Are we celebrating the passage of time or are we looking forward to something unknown? TS Elliot once said, “Every moment is a fresh beginning”. We shouldn’t put so much energy into one night but try to better ourselves each day. Regardless, we are in 2022 and I can’t but feel hopeful.
Weekend Watch #80 – Camino Update
Happy weekend pilgrims. We at Clearskies Camino.com woke up with good news and with our Weekend Watch series, we want to show you a video!
Weekend Watch #79 – A picture perfect Camino Francés
Happy weekend pilgrims. I hope you are well. This particular video has been on YouTube for quite some time and has built up a lot of views. However, I have only recently watched it. The length of the video put me off at first so I "liked" it and waited for a Friday evening to... Continue Reading →
Memories of the Camino Finisterre
I have been working through my previous Caminos, creating content for my YouTube channel (plug, plug!!) and I have just finished creating a video from my Camino Finisterre in 2016. I can't believe that was 4 years ago. Fun fact - I actually planned to walk this in May 2016 but I broke my toe... Continue Reading →
Camino Francés 2014 & 2015
As I have not had the opportunity to walk one of Spain's great pilgrim's paths this year, I've been reeling in the years by looking over photos from previous Caminos. I must say it has been quite enjoyable, even though I prefer to make new memories. During the two years of 2014 and 2015, I... Continue Reading →
It’s Christmas, but not as we know it!
First of all, I want to wish all my readers a happy, safe and peaceful Christmas. The year has been very challenging for many people but because of Covid-19, it means many people are unable to meet like they normally do each year. I am looking forward to 2021 and to get back out to... Continue Reading →
Weekend Watch # 72 – Efren’s Camino Inglés from Ferrol
It was May 2019. It felt like a lifetime ago. Myself and my brother started out from Ferrol at the end of May and a few days later walked into Santiago having detoured to A Coruna. It was a short sweet Camino and one I would love to walk again, but maybe from Ferrol. Efren,... Continue Reading →
Weekend Watch # 71 – Camino Camaraderie on the Northern Coast of Spain
It is the weekend again and Efren is back with another offering of Camino goodness. He has already completed his Camino del Norte and Camino Ingles and he is putting all his thoughts and words in video form. Although I have not yet walked from Irun, walking with Efren brings back so many memories. Memories... Continue Reading →
Weekend Watch #70 – Another milestone
I remember starting out on my Weekend Watch adventure back in 2015. My goal was to give you one video about the Camino per week, one video from the (literally) hundreds of uploaded content on YouTube, Vimeo and Facebook. With this milestone, I am going to give you 4 because you are worth it....and because... Continue Reading →
On the subject of YouTube..
I may as well give a little plug to my own YouTube channel that is in its infancy. I hope to record a few shots while walking and upload it for you to see. I'm comfortable with the Dji osmo pocket that I bought before Christmas. It is so tiny you can fit it in... Continue Reading →
