    Hello all! I’ve taken the sad decision to postpone our September Camino (stage 1 of the Camino Frances) to next May/early June.

    Sleeping bag for early September Camino Frances?

    I’ll be doing the first section of the Camino Frances, from SJPP to Los Arcos, between 1st and 10th September (including exploration days). I’ve booked private rooms in advance for the whole route (medical reasons—wish I could stay in bunk beds but can’t). Some of the rooms are in hotels or...

    My Camino in a Nutshell

    Everybody writes a note when they return from the Camino, it seems. After my wife and I arrived in Santiago, we went to confession. My penance was to share a story of the Camino. I started writing about every day and every detail, but I don’t think anyone wants to read that. Let me share with...
