I'm hoping you may be able to help me. Some time ago while on the web I discovered a story about a couple who bought and renovated a Spanish property, a stone house or mill. They have a business helping others find country property to purchase. I've lost sight of their name and business. Might you know of them?
I just ordered 2 copies of your book for myself and my daughter. The Camino virus hits hard and I'm on my way again, probably on the C Portugues. My daughter decided that, not only does she want to tag along, but she wants us to do a podcast about it!
I am gifting her a copy of your book so she can get her head in the right place. She lives in Pittsburgh, I now live in Hawaii.
Should be quite an adventure.
Hi again. I have seen on some of the other post threads that one can approach the hostels directly to find work - I am a hard worker and qualified massage therapist and reflexologist, so I think my skills will be useful. However, where do I find the names of the places to approach ?
Hi Rebekah, I'm contacting you as I've found your name in a conversation related to finding work in the Camino.I came in contact with the Camino the past summer and I fell complitely in love with it. I'd like to work for the next season in an albergue in the Camino del Norte and I am wondering if you could give me any tips. I'm interested in paid work as I have just quit my job. Thanks in advance <3
Hi Rebekah, Just back two weeks from CF and am surprised to see how little discussion there is on the forum about volunteering. Happened to read in one of the threads that you were the one to contact. My first question is, as a US citizen resident in the UK, would I need a visa to volunteer? Maybe it would be good to start a dedicated thread where all such questions could be addressed.
Hi Rebekah, your name popped up on a spot I was reading so I thought I'd drop a quick line to say hello. I'm an acquaintance of Ingrid F. here in the Toronto area and also with the Canadian Company of Pilgrims. Just joined that group's national board. Looking forward to learning more about the 'Peaceable' work you do. Nice to know where to find you! Buen Camino.
Hi Rebekah, from Bowling Green Ohio. My husband and I are finishing our camino from last year that ended in Moratinos. Wondering if you still have your place open for pilgrims? I read your story and would like to begin at the Peaceable Kingdom. Would love to stay with you on Sept. 18, 2018.
Just back from short Camino to celebrate my 70th and to bring back photos of Philip Wren's memorial for some of his Church.Sorry I missed you when I called,but thank your other half for his directions to the memorial which we passed (too much talking).Thank you for your work to pay tribute to Philip.
As an avid reader of Camino books I'm finding this book refreshing as it's a"Natives" view of the Camino,and the intro that explained his determination to complete the story of his journey before he sadly passed on.This will be a never ending tribute to him.
Hi Rebekah, I want to thank you and Pad and the Peaceable Kingdom for such wonderful hospitality on October 10th! You are such an inspiration in all that you do - particularly for the Camino and Moratinos!!
All the best, and positive thoughts for good weather for the clean up!! Wish I were closer to help!
I sent that PM to you without scrolling down the thread about the rubbish cleaning. If I had, I'd have seen the link about making a donation.
Hope the weather's kind to all the volunteers.
Hey I saw the post about needing hospitaleros at Ave Fenix in Villa Franca de Bierzo. I would consider it but I'm just wondering if there is something about the place that you know of that would be difficult being there. I heard mixed reviews when I went through there 2 years ago. I did not stay there so I don't know first hand. What if anything do you know about it.
Hi Rebekah, I am back home now after a wonderful camino. I want to thank you for your hospitality when we dropped in at your home (27/05). The tea was really good. You have a beautiful home and we left your place with a song in our hearts. I will send a picture. Joyce and I managed to walk to Muxia and it was great. I am feeling quite lost at the moment - bad case of camino blues!! Regards, Petro
Hi Rebecca. We visited on the 11th May, I was with 3 other women and we bumped into you and Paddy coming back from a walk with all your amazing dogs. Was the highlight of our day
You kindly made us a cuppa, supplied us with some great biscuits, welcomed us into your home and spent time chatting with us.
I just wanted to ask how I can send you a photo that was taken from our visit with you.
Cup of tea I am in Terradillos de los Templarios. I think it is only 3 km to Moratinos. I am walking with two other women at present. We would love to stop by to say hello. We are happy to delay our departure till a reasonable time. What would you prefer as a time we arrive at The Peaceable Kingdom, if you are still happy to share a cuppa?
Looking forward to meeting you Jen
Just wondering if your are sometimes still up for a knock at the door to share a cuppa with a pilgrim.
I am walking slowly leaving from Burgos on a Good Friday and would love to catch up even briefly.
