    Is it good to sing and dance during Camino de Santiago?

    This is me walking down the road toward Castrojariz. 🤣

    Anyone have a favourite British Pilgrimage?

    My sister and I tried the Cotswold Way. Sadly, after the 2nd day it was so secluded (literally saw no own on Day 4) we didn’t feel comfortable out the alone so we hopped a cab and spent extra days in Bath. It was beautiful, tho, and the B&B’s and our hosts were outstanding. A more experienced...

    Camino French first two night & baggage weight

    I wish I would have stayed one day extra in SJPdP before walking. I really feel I missed out on seeing the town. That is my one and only thing I would change from my Camino. Enjoy!

    Quick “The Way” synopses (and tribute)

    My first red flag? They are wearing denim. 🤷‍♀️But I love the movie and it was my inspiration for my first Camino. 🥰

    Show me your tattoo

    Mine says “Cor unum in Deum” -one heart in God. It is written on the small wooden cross that is worn by the nuns in Carrion de los Condes and has special meaning because I was asked to sing two songs at the pilgrim mass the evening I stayed there. Two weeks later I ran into a pilgrim who had...

    Cathedral Closed...Is the Camino still worth it?

    I am Catholic. “11For I know the plans I have for you, says the LORD, plans of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. 12Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. 13And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with...

    Is there any elitism between pilgrims taking different routes?

    Why does anyone even care what others think?

    Live - Camino Francés Municipal albergues allowing large group to reserve 😡

    Should they have to wait 30-40 years of their life, with their mistakes in tow to learn the spiritual lessons that they are learning now that will help them avoid future mistakes? If they are under 18, they are likely not learning “spiritual lessons”. And I would not guess that this experience...

    Food Poisoning in Carrion de los Condes.

    Weird. I got sick on the Camino too! Two days after leaving Carrion. I didn’t want to believe it because my stay there was absolutely blessed, but right before I left I purchased a little loaf of bread with a sausage inside at the bakery across from the park next to the church of Santa Maria...

    Being alone in the albergues?

    On the CF, I booked a bed early afternoon in Momientos. There were many pilgrims there, including several that I knew well. It was a lovely, relaxing afternoon. When bedtime arrived, I went into my room that housed four beds (two sets of bunks) and got in bed. Then my roommates arrived - three...
