    Walking near Assisi

    This is not Camino-related - though St Francis is reported to have been to Santiago- but I thought some might be interested. I am leaving home in a week for a 10-day walking tour based near Assisi. I am doing it through a commercial company, with my bag carried, and accommodation booked etc, so...

I didn't act on the e-mail straight away, but thought I must get 'around to it' one day. Now I find the link doesn't...

    Le-Puy-en-Velay Tourist Guide

    I have just found this tourist guide, put out by the Le-Puy-en-Velay Tourist Office. It is in English, in pdf format. I think that often people just see Le Puy as a place to get to, so they can start their walking...

    Cluny blog

    This blog isn't quite on the Le Puy route, but this seems the best place to post about it. I am mid-way through creating a blog about my April-May walk from Cluny to Le-Puy-en-Velay. It contains quite a few photos and my retelling of the walk. It's still in the nature of a 'first draft' but I...

    Staircase to see in Santiago

    While I was in Santiago I spent some time with a young woman I met from New York, and she told me to go to Museo do Pobo Galego- to see the amazing staircase in the building as much as the displays. There are three separate staircases twirling around each other- taking you to different places...

    LIVE from the Camino Hurrying slowly from Cluny

    It's still six weeks until I leave New Zealand- but time is racing by, and I have a 'to do' list a mile long of things I want to cross off before I walk out my front door and head off to the local airport to start the long journey for Paris. Before I know it, it seems like I'll be 'live' from...

    Plastic bags and snorers

    There's just been a report prepared about visitor reactions to a very scenic New Zealand wilderness walk- a 53.3km trek along the Milford Track in one of our National Parks.
