    on being a (more) broken pilgrim

    I was walking The Cistercian Way this autumn and hurt my knee. It was bad enough to have to pull out for 4 weeks. As part of my report and reflection on the route, I have written a bit on the experience of this injury and convalescence here...

    the cistercian way - report

    I've written a reflection and report on my pilgrimage along the Cistercian Way which I have posted here: https://pilgrimpace.wordpress.com/2016/11/30/walking-the-cistercian-way-on-becoming-a-more-broken-pilgrim-part-1/ It will be in three or four parts as it is too long for one blog post. The...

    picking up the Cistercian Way

    After hurting my knee badly four weeks ago, I am recovered enough to head back to Wales tomorrow and start walking again. I'm doing the final week or so - from Abergavenny round to Penrhys. To protect my knee I will be travelling very light this time, mainly spending the night with friends...

    Walter Starkie

    I'm using some of the time I have while my knee heals up to re-read Walter Starkie's seminal 'The Road to Santiago', his account of pilgrimage in 1954 (while drawing on a couple of pilgrimages in the 1920's). I haven't read it for several years, and it is excellent - do read it if you can, it...

    a (more) broken pilgrim

    I am supposed to be in the middle of walking The Cistercian Way, a 700 mile pilgrimage around Wales. As always when I set off on a long pilgrimage I promised that I would only stop for two reasons: an emergency call from home or a medical professional telling me to stop. After 10 days I...

    the cistercian way

    I will be walking the Cistercian Way around Wales in September and October. Details here: https://pilgrimpace.wordpress.com/2016/07/16/the-cistercian-way/ Will be interesting if I pick up any traces of Santiago. I'm starting and finishing at Penrhys which was the major Marian Shrine in South...

    It's a long time since I walked the Levante. It was my first Camino - tough and incredibly good. I hadn't thought about it that much for a while (I'm looking forward to a big pilgrimage around Wales next year) but a meditation on the Levante and the Feasts of Mary has just emerged...

    Live - Camino Ingles coruna

    I'm off on Sunday with a small group of friends for a short (and wet!) pilgrimage from A Coruna to Santiago with a few days of Retreat in Santiago at the end. If I get the chance I will blog, but I suspect I am more likely to report back afterwards. If you have anything you want us to pray...

    patrick leigh fermor

    I really enjoyed reading Patrick Leigh Fermor's kit list from his epic walk across Europe in the 1930's which is here: http://pilgrimpace.wordpress.com/2012/09/22/kit-list/ It is a very beautiful piece of writing - and very different gear from most of us! Andy

    roads to santiago

    In 'Roads to Santiago' Cees Nooteboom writes: The historian Labande defines the medieval pilgrim as “a Christian who at some point in his life makes the decision to travel to a particular place and who surrenders his entire existence to achieving that goal”. Does anyone know where the Labande...
