    The Camino Francés day-by-day (three years ago)

    The surface of the road would have been a lot smoother in Roman times, that’s for sure!

    The Camino Francés day-by-day (three years ago)

    Camino de Santiago, Day 5. The trail itself takes many forms, from main roads to village streets to dirt tracks and everything in between. Today we walked on another type of trail, centuries older than the camino itself: a secondary Roman road that once went from Gaul to Hispania.

    The Camino Francés day-by-day (three years ago)

    Camino de Santiago, Day 4. As we walk away from the Pyrenees into the heart of Navarra, the landscape is changing around us. The forests and grazing areas of the first three days are now gone, replaced by crop fields. Here, a lone pilgrim ahead of us walks through a golden wheat field.

    Haha, I would have gone anyway! Actually I even went back to the Pena Palace today for the second time in a week because it’s so spectacular in this light and with no crowds.

    Done! It was amazing up there today! (Although unfortunately there were six other people there which completely ruined it.) 🤣

    The Camino Francés day-by-day (three years ago)

    Camino de Santiago, Day 3. After a short-ish 21km hike, we arrived early this afternoon at the only place on the Camino Francés that I had already been to: Pamplona, which I once visited for the running of the bulls as a two-and-a-half-week traveller at age 21 in July 2001. Today, at over 30...

    The Camino Francés day-by-day (three years ago)

    Camino de Santiago, Day 2. After a 6am wake-up song by the Dutch volunteers at the pilgrims' hostel, our hike began with an early-morning stroll through this witches' forest, where nine people were burned at the stake during the Inquisition. That set the tone for the rest of our day, which was...

    The Camino Francés day-by-day (three years ago)

    Camino de Santiago, Day 1. After a hike of 24.5km, including a climb through the Pyrenees to 1429m and a non-existent international border crossing, we eventually made it to Spain and the village of Roncesvalles. This is supposed to be the hardest day on the entire Camino Francés, so it should...

    Camino Mask is the new Camino Buff

    Lo encontré en una tienda muy pequeña en la calle donde vivo en Lisboa. No se trata de una marca conocida, entonces no sé si se puede comprarla en otros países o lugares, disculpa.

    Camino Mask is the new Camino Buff

    Masks have been obligatory in shops and on public transport in Portugal since May 4th, and I wear mine whenever I’m out of the house. Today the mask went on a field trip to the Assembleia (national parliament building), and its owner even had a haircut since the last photo.

    The Camino Francés day-by-day (three years ago)

    Tomorrow marks three years to the day since @Wendy Werneth and I started our first camino, the Francés, from SJPdP. I posted a photo and a sentence or two each day on Facebook while we were walking and I thought it might be fun, given the current circumstances, to repost these here each day and...

    Algarve Way

    It sounds like you're just looking for something less crowded than the CF but with pilgrim infrastructure. There are plenty of caminos that will serve that purpose just fine - the Primitivo, the Madrid, the Mozárabe, the Via de la Plata etc. Or is there something specific that attracts you to...
