    New York Times article on Hape Kerkeling

    Even if it the reasons for walking the Camino (ie popular book) look superficial, the Camino will do it's work Try not to be too judgmental (not always so easy) Any reason to convene with your spirit is a good reason Buen camino!

    After hiking footwear?

    Having just finished the walk, what happened to me was blisters on both of my little toes about 3 days before Logrono. I had a stretchy light tennis shoe type shoe to wear, but they hurt the blisters and also, I had nothing to wear for relief in walking when I knew I could go further but my...

    Just Finished Walking,

    The manhole covers are another story. My daughter and I walked the Camino 5 years ago and about half way through we realized we had been stopping and reading/looking at all the water, gas & manhole covers and started taking photos of them. As you know, you look down a lot when you are...

    I just finished walking the Camino Frances about 10 days ago, it was my second time, I am 57 years old, and walked with my friend Pat who turned 70 on the trip. It was full of just about anything you could conjure up in your imagination about what walking for about 40 days would do to one. It...

    Water Intake

    It's been suggested to me to drink a half to liter of water in the am right after you get up to get you started. (I do this every day) A great side effect beside hydrating you, is that it will make you regular - you will really be surprised at how great this works. It seems like a lot of water...
