    The Camino Francés day-by-day (three years ago)

    Tomorrow marks three years to the day since @Wendy Werneth and I started our first camino, the Francés, from SJPdP. I posted a photo and a sentence or two each day on Facebook while we were walking and I thought it might be fun, given the current circumstances, to repost these here each day and...

    Camino Mask is the new Camino Buff

    It’s not exactly official, but it has shells and the right colours so I had to get it!

    Photos of Lisbon in Lockdown

    Edit: Here is an article I wrote on Medium to go with these pictures. It's about sound, light and lockdown. On my way to and from extended grocery shopping trips this week, I've been able to walk through and photograph the Baixa and Chiado areas of Lisbon. I thought it might be interesting for...

    The Crux of the Camino

    An ad in the Sydney Morning Herald today that my Dad sent me. You too can walk the camino for just AUD$25,000 (US$16,800~, €15,500~) for 19 nights! 😲

    Pilgrimages of Queen Isabel and others on the CP

    Hi all, I'm looking for more information on Queen Isabel of Portugal's pilgrimage on the CP in the late 13th or early 14th century. On the web I see quite a few articles about the CP that mention this but none really give any details (if any are known, such as where she started). I've also read...

    I Hate Mountain

    I saw this in a shop window in Torino tonight and thought it would do a roaring trade at the Orrison or Roncesvalles albergues! ;)

    LIVE from the Camino Camino de Madrid - April 2019

    After spending a day and a half in Madrid seeing friends and eating way too much, tomorrow morning we’re setting out from the Iglesia de Santiago to begin our third camino. I’ll phone-blog here for anyone interested. I’ve never minded walking in cities on camino and @peregrina2000 has said that...

    Hi all, We leave for Madrid two weeks from today, spending a couple of nights there while visiting friends, and then starting on the Camino de Madrid on Monday 1st April. Here are a few random questions that my cursory research has thrown up so far. I'd appreciate any advice! 1. Gronze shows a...

    Walking the other way: the Portuguese Camino (Guardian article, 2 March 2019)

    Walking the other way: the Portuguese Camino. This is a rather unremarkable article that's light on substance and purpose but I'll share it anyway. The writer did three days of the Portuguese camino, walking 9 miles / ~14.5km per day and staying in manor houses. He doesn't seem to know much...

    Favourite Camino Waymarking Signs

    Do you have any photos of camino signs or arrows that you particularly like for any reason? Here are a couple of mine. This is from the Camino Primitivo, somewhere near Tineo - near the muddy section, if I recall correctly, which would make sense! How cute are the snails? This one is from...

    Help me choose my May-June 2019 camino (~18 days)

    TL;DR - Which camino would you recommend in late spring for about 18 days? Things have changed a bit since the last time I asked for advice about choosing a camino for 2019. Now, it looks like I’ll have a window to walk a solo camino in late May - early June while junglegirl is leading a tour...

    Camino Signs in Unlikely Places

    This morning I was in the sleepy colonial town of Antonina, near Curitiba in the Brazilian state of Paraná. I know the camino is popular with Brazilians but I didn’t expect to stumble upon camino memorabilia in a place like this! Have others come across camino signs in unlikely places?

    Next camino (2019): Mozárabe or Portugués?

    @Wendy Werneth and I are in the early stages of deciding which camino to do next year. We have two windows of opportunity and are thinking of doing either the Camino Mozárabe from Almería to Mérida from mid-March to mid-April, or the Camino Portugués Central from Porto to Santiago, with the...

    LIVE from the Camino Nick and Wendy on the Primitivo

    Edit: Most of what I posted in this thread is now available in blog form at this link, if you prefer to read it that way. Right now we’re in the pre-Camino stage as we prepare to start walking on Friday. Last night we left Lisbon on the overnight train to Madrid. The Oriente station in Lisbon...

    A new buff for a new camino

    @Wendy Werneth and I are leaving Lisbon tomorrow on the overnight train to Madrid, staying a night in Madrid to see some friends, taking the train to Oviedo on Thursday and starting the Camino Primitivo on Friday! Today I bought a new buff to celebrate the start of a new camino!

    What does your Google Maps in Spain look like?

    Hopefully this can be a fun little thread. I like it how my Google Maps shows that I have done the Camino Francés because of all the places I starred along the way. What does your Google Maps (or other map service) look like?

    Podcast episode about Santiago de Compostela

    Hi all, I host a weekly podcast for intermediate/advanced English speakers and learners. The podcast features real conversations about people, places and their stories (so it can be enjoyed by native speakers too). This week's episode is about Santiago de Compostela so I thought I'd share it...
