Like to run, bike and hike. 1st Camino was a rare event that combined a spiritual element with my love of outdoors and being active. People along the way, pilgrims and hosts, were (almost) universally supportive and friendly and I made several new friends. This was an epic adventure. Managed to traipse from Lisboa to Santiago on a second journey (Aug/Sept 2018) in a brutal 40+C heat wave, with a wander over to Fatima on the way to Coimbra. Lovely trek but far fewer pilgrims than on CF.
2022 - Walked from Canterbury to Martigny (Suisse) in June/July. Took Chunnel Train instead of P&O due to labor issues at P&O Ferries. Walked across France on VF and old Via Romain, encountering more wild animals (deer, boar, foxes) than other pilgrims. Lack of support infrastructure makes advance planning and often advance booking a more serious issue than on the CF or CP. Will finish in 2023 in Rome, or 2024, if family events intervene in 2023.
