  • 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?
    Thank you
    John

    there's an English guy up in Galicia, near Lugo, named Mark or Mike Atkinson. He is married to a Spanish veterinarian, they live in an old house and he sells property in the area. I find him a bit of a hustler, but that's just me.

    Thank you. I'll give him a try.

    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.

    thanks for the good words! You are in for a treat. Your relationship with your daughter will never be the same.

    You have no way of remembering me, but I stopped by your place 5 years ago while on CF#2. I met your wonderful DH (Dear Husband) and another person who was helping with some construction (?). You were nice enough to treat me to lunch, we talked about the poor Thai girl who had gone missing, and I had a very nice visit. LOL, my relationship with my daughter is terrific, I hope it stays that way. 😉
    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 ?

    Thank you so much for the response. It all sounds rather complicated. I have not actually walked it and was hoping to work there for three months or so, before walking for a while. However, I am confident that if I am meant to do this, then it will all work out. :)

    you will do better to walk first, so you have a much better understanding of where the pilgrims are going, and where they're coming from. Some places will not accept volunteers who have not been pilgrims themselves.

    Wow! It is complicated. Thanks for your feedback and wise words.
    Hi, Rebekah. I am really eager to serve at a hostel anywhere the walk from mid April through to end of July. Would love some advice and information, as I believe that you are the 'go-to' person. TIA :)

    Paid employment is very rare, priority goes to locals, or those willing to work for minimal wages. Lots will take volunteers -- unpaid labor! Be careful of exploitation. If you are volunteering, stick with non-profits.
    The best advice I can give is to remember the places you liked, where you can imagine working. Get out your guidebook for their address, contact them with your goals, and see what they say.
    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.

    Thank you, DQ. If and when you have questions or ideas, just say the word!
    Hi, Rebekah. I read your posts for the albergue needing beds and I sent a donation about an hour ago on your website. Thank you for all you do. You're a good camino busybody!

    thank you! People like you keep the wheels turning.
    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.

    hola Carolyn. You're welcome to come over, I will be in USA that part of September, alas! But Paddy will be here with James, our loveable Scottish hospitalero, and all the animals. Thanks for thinking of us.
    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.
    Rebekah Scott
    Rebekah Scott
    yes, sorry I missed you. Come on back when you're in the neighborhood!
    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.
    Thank you for your work on westward walk,I'm loving the book?

    Thanks, Philip. I realize the publisher used an earlier proof of the manuscript and there are TYPOS in there... aaaaugh! I hope they are not too distracting.

    Please review the book on Amazon when you're finished. Every little bit helps!
    Trying to get hold of Westward Walk without having to get it from Amazon over the pond.
    Are there any European online sellers, that you know of ?

    Order it via your nearest Amazon.. I don't know where you are, but it's on Amazon.de, uk, es, etc. For now that is the only international distributor we have.
    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!

    Hi Rebekah,
    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.

    Hello again,
    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.
    Cheers Alex
    Many thanks Rebecca. You are safe for a while. We will probably leave in the next 20 min. No movie stars among us so no competition :). C u soon.

    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
    Hi Rebekah
    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.
    Cheers Jen
    Hello Rebekah, You wrote "If you are Episcopalian, Anglican, or even Lutheran, you can freely receive Communion along the Camino, if that is what you wish to do.".

    I am a Lutheran and had not heard this before. I just wanted to confirm with you that I can as a Lutheran take holy communion.

    Thank you. I am pleased about this. Ed
