    Heavy burden to carry

    I'm so very sorry for your loss & that you couldn't find a resting place on that sad night. There is a saying 'you never know how strong you are, until being strong is your only choice'. You are doing this, & yes, you are being tested, but there are lessons in all our 'struggles', & they say...

    Heavy burden to carry

    There is a thing called 'Divine Timing'. As humans, we think we are 'in charge', & so we plan things accordingly. God laughs, as only He knows, & so He plans when, where, & how our life goes. You say the Camino helped you before with an emotional situation, & it will do so again. I work in...

    Muxía to Finisterre or Finisterre to Muxía?

    I stayed in Hostal La Cruz. Room 305 looks out onto the sea ... & the seagulls will wake you in the morning! 😇

    Muxía to Finisterre or Finisterre to Muxía?

    Hi there, my favourite has always been the coastal route to Finisterre. I have done it 3 times ... & always finish in Muxia! That little village is so quaint & calming after the hype in the preceeding town. It really depends on what you're looking for. I only do 'one-week stints' due to work...

    Too late to start preparing & weather in May?

    You must go back ... everyone goes back! As already stated by another pilgrim, this is YOUR Camino ... so you start whenever & whatever time you like (tho I would recommend earlyish... before 8). I think the Camino is as much a mental as physical journey, so focus on your mind, emotions ... &...

    Anything wrong with wanting to walk alone?

    @EL LECHERO Get rid of that 'guilt' now or you may stay home! I have a 4-year old grandson & if either my son or daughter-in-law gave each other's blessing for a 3-week 'escape', there would be no hesitation or guilt. The phrase 'gone in a flash' comes to mind! 🙃 Listen, you have a lovely...

    Finisterre to Santiago via Muxia

    This is my favourite section of the Camino! I've done it 3 times & each time was a different experience, but all good! Last time was 2019. I like to finish in Muxia, a small fishing village, that just 'spoke to me' the fist time I arrived there. Finisterre is lovely, but way too commercial...

    On the Camino: One Day at a Time, one Photo at a Time 8.0

    @mspath, your knowledge, experience, tips etc are invaluable ... so keep writing! How beautiful that you still have all those wonderful memories! I work with the elderly & a lot of them cannot remember some of their hapoy times. Please write about these 'journeys'. They are treasured...

    On the Camino: One Day at a Time, one Photo at a Time 8.0

    @mspath, yes ... it's 'interesting that we are 'called' to journeys further afield. Still, I've often said 'we meet the people we are meant to meet in life' & if they are on a path further afield ... that's where we will be called to! Maybe you need to meet them on Camino, so they can take...

    Anything wrong with wanting to walk alone?

    You are so right Tomas! When you walk alone, your senses are alive & more in touch with what's going on around you. I love chatting to people along the way sometimes, but my favourite is meandering through a meadow alone, preferably early morning, & listening to those beautiful birds welcoming...

    @VNwalking, I just love this photo ... it's 'alive'! The colours; the setting; I can hear that water flowing ... thank you! 😇

    Anything wrong with wanting to walk alone?

    I totally understand Jeff. On my first solo Camino, my beloved Riley had recently died, & he was obviously worried about me being on my own, so the first day, as I started out from Sarria, all these dogs kept appearing 'out of nowhere' on my trail. I had Riley's pic on a key-ring, on my...

    Anything wrong with wanting to walk alone?

    This is so good (tho I love dogs, but on Camino, there are varying 'species'!🤨) Maybe time to write the book Jeff ... 'Tails of the Unexpected ... on Camino'! 🐶😍🐕

    Anything wrong with wanting to walk alone?

    I have done big group, small group, bestie, partner, solo ... I did solo 3 times! Now, my journeys were just one week stints, but a week can feel like a month if you're not enjoying it! The big group was my first Camino experience & I loved it! The small group was my second Camino experience...

    Anything wrong with wanting to walk alone?

    Oh @Stroller you need to stop being so polite & enjoy Your Camino. Next time you meet Jane or any or her cronies, look her straight in the eye, & in your best Irish accent say "pog me thoin" (pronounced poog me hone) which translates to "kiss my ass"! She probably won't have a clue what you're...

    Rome to Assisi on the Via Francesco to the Tomb of St. Francis

    Oh, you could be right Kevin! Went to Rome a few years ago - just a w/e trip. Loved the Trevi Fountain, but it was sooo busy. Wanted to go back early morning when there's no crowds, but was told there's always crowds! Rome to Assisi would be a 'push' for me (time constraints with work 🙄) but...
