    Camino Frances: looking back to 2005, what was the Camino like?

    We didn't see those lights because we didn't leave Saint Jean until 11ish, a bit of a mistake as we arrived in Roncesvalles just as the night closed in around us.

    Camino Mozárabe: 5 things you'll want to know

    The Via de la Plata is possibly our favourite Camino, possibly because it is where discovered the joy of long-distance walking. We also walked with two French pilgrims for a while on the route and have become very good friends. Enjoy the journey and we hope that your Aussie friends are able to...

    Camino Mozárabe: 5 things you'll want to know

    We can't emphasise how helpful the association was. They are doing all they can to support pilgrims and promote the route so as to support the local economy and provide an income for locals. Enjoy your journey Buen camino!

    Camino Mozárabe: 5 things you'll want to know

    The delights of walking less-travelled routes (although more popular routes also have their attractions).

    Camino Frances: looking back to 2005, what was the Camino like?

    The Beast of Gévaudan, not far before Aumont-Aubrac. The Beast was a mythological creature likely based on real (historical) attacks by wolves in the area and generated a lot of concern, even hysteria at the time.

    The 750 km of training probably helped just a little :)

    Camino Frances: looking back to 2005, what was the Camino like?

    We might just have hit a sweet spot in 2005, the lack of communication that you describe was there and the CJS was our guide (along with The Pilgrimage Road to Santiago : The Complete Cultural Handbook, which every pilgrim should carry). However, the path had likely been rerouted since 2002 to...

    Camino Mozárabe: 5 things you'll want to know

    Also, just noticed that you walked from Le Puy in 2005. We walked the Camino Frances in the same year and have recently posted an account of our first Camino (COVID-19 has some thin silver linings): http://our-wanderlust.com/2005/10/camino-frances-spain/

    Camino Mozárabe: 5 things you'll want to know

    Your draft route has a nice line to it. the route from Malaga is slightly shorter than from Almeria, but over that distance it's probably immaterial. It'll be a fabulous adventure, enjoy!

    My (leisurely) stages on the Camino de Madrid

    Thanks for an informative and inspiring account. It's a route that's definitely high up on our to-do list (just as soon as we can get to Europe).

    Camino Frances: looking back to 2005, what was the Camino like?

    We knew very little about the Camino Francés when we set out. in fact we'd never heard of it until a friend came back from Spain with fabulous stories of walking a pilgrimage in Spain. But six months later, in the autumn of 2005, inspired by Robert’s stories and in need of respite from the...
