    Denise Thiem - Five Years "In Memoriam"

    Although I never met or knew Denise I was on the Camino during the same period of time March 23-April 23, 2015. I remember the day I arrived in the pilgrim office in Santiago de Compostela they showed me a picture of Denise and asked if I had seen her, that was the first I heard of Denise and...

    Via di Francesco

    I'll be starting from Florence on September 20th so I'll be about a week behind you. As far as accommodations, good question - I'm also not sure what to expect - what I do know is that everything I've read says it is not like the Camino de Santiago in which I made my first night accommodation...

    Via di Francesco

    Thanks Dan for the update - I've been following the St. Francis Facebook page for quite a while now and have found it to be a great resource for information. Less than a month from now I'll be on my way! I have the guide and have downloaded gps files. As you pointed out I'm expecting it to be...

    Camino Fátima albergue issues

    I didn't stay in Rabacal/Alvorge, after Coimbra my next days were: 1) Conimbriga - Albergue de Conimbriga - Albergue was behind the house of the owners, very nice family and very nice Albergue - was brand new albergue. https://www.facebook.com/Albergue-de-Conímbriga-2383958958511857/ 2)...

    Camino Fátima albergue issues

    I walked the same route from Porto to Fatima in Oct of 2017 - arrived in Fatima for the centennial celebration Oct 13th. Even with such an important day and celebration I didn't find very many pilgrims walking to Fatima so I imagine its never really crowded with pilgrims going in that...

    Via di Francesco

    Thanks Ed for posting and sharing your blog. I look forward to reading your daily blog as I am planning on walking from Florence to Assisi in mid-September. Are you also using Sandy's gpx files or have you found the path to be well marked? I imagine the guide doesn't help when you come across...

    Weather in March

    I walked the Camino in 2015 from March 23 arriving in SdC on April 23rd. Overall I thought it was a great time of year to walk. Yes there were some days of cold, snow, rain as you can see from my picture on March 23, 2015 my first day SjPdP to Roncesvalles on the low route but after that first...

    Hi John, Couple of questions for you since I'm planning on walking from Florence to Assisi same time next year as you just did. I'd like to be in Assisi for the feast day in October. You said you used Sandy Brown's book did you follow his recommended stages if not how many days did it take...

    Suseia Bracelet

    Thanks for posting Brendan and please do give my compliments to your wife. I wear my bracelet all the time and love it. It's definitely special to me, a constant visual reminder of the camino which is always with me internally and to hear your words confirming how they are made makes them even...

    Suseia Bracelet

    I have the men's version of it and I love it:) - as Anniesantiago said you can't put a price on art if you love it buy it. For me it is meaningful and provides a nice reminder of the camino to me. I'm not an art expert, but the quality of it seems very good to me. I trust they have done what...

    Camino Angel : What to bring from home to give out to fellow pilgrims ?

    When I did my first camino in 2015 I decided to bring with me something to symbolize my hometown that I could hopefully share with a local somewhere along the way. So i brought a few small little basketball keychains from my home Syracuse University. Never could I have imagined the joy it would...

    Via di Francesco

    Fantastic! That should definitely be a special birthday for you:). Would be great to keep in contact over this next year and share whatever we learn about the via di Francesco! I've done a few camino's now and am wondering if it will be similar as far as being able to just walk and find an...

    Via di Francesco

    Like my other pilgrimages that I've done (Camino Frances and Camino Fatima), certain things happen in my life and I find myself finding a pilgrimage that seems to be calling me to go. Now I've stumbled upon the St. Francis way just recently and I am thinking of making that my next one. I will...
