    Keeping in shape for the next Camino - whenever.

    Thanks, Paul A bit of history that I never knew (lots of those) and certainly a way to stitch up the world, no matter how far apart we live! My connections to the rest of the world generally come from the huge ships passing in the Delaware River channel visible from the street in front of my...

    Parador in Muxía to open Easter 2020

    it's one more reminder that I can't go back, that today's life is the only one I get, and, for me, for whom Muxia was a perfect camino coda, only gratitude that Muxia will always be a sleepy, out of time fishing town at the edge of a great sea. Other towns; other times...

    Current need to book ahead

    Hi Joanne, That’s exactly when I did it this year—in fact I’m four days from Santiago! I also wanted to wing it and recommend you do just that.

    Routes Lacking Sufficient Municipal Albergue Beds...

    I’m close to Burgos now on the CF and the shortage of beds in what was to have been a shoulder season has me wondering. My goal was to walk and stop rather than book and run.

    All of these posts are so heartening to me as I anticipate my first Camino—the reason for walking being a sorely felt need for connection and healing. Thank you all!!
