    LIVE from the Camino Janet and Phil on the CF 2023

    I feel that the troubles of getting here were a challenge. Somewhat akin to some encountered on a pilgrimage.

    Granon - monastery open?

    If you mean Hospital San Juan Bautista, the albergue at the church, it is open. It is a very special place and well worth staying there. When I served there as a hospitalero, they did not have a phone.

    Still Longing to Return

    Hi Penny, Ever since we met on the Camino in 2016 you have been an inspiration. I suspect that you will be able to convince your husband that you can and will return for another Camino. Keep us all posted as you continue to train and definitely when you walk another Camino. Phil

    Why do it Again?

    Penny, Meeting you on the Camino was great! You seemed so strong even after you told Janet and I about your struggles. Your bravery and strength are examples for others to emulate. I have to return and be a Camino repeater. This time we will be serving as hospitaleros. When you are able to...
