    Special Days

    While out walking this morning I was thinking about the Camino and the sounds I hear when I am walking. I NEVER walk with anything in my ears partly for safety and partly because I want to hear what is going on around me. This means that sometimes you hear (and perhaps see) unexpected things...

    Via Romea - Stade (near Hamburg) to Rome

    Or also called Via Romea Germanica. I am currently walking this route. It is very much a road less travelled, but peopled with the most extaordinary people who bend over backwards to help. Here is my blog if anyone wants to follow my journey. The blogging is a bit spasmodic as Wifi is not...

    the Camino Frances in Dec / Jan

    I have been feeling guilty that I haven't started a thread to let you know how it is on the road, and so, while I have a few minutes to spare, I thought I would do a quick post of my experiences so far.
