    Traveling with family and friends

    I travelled my first camino (Francés) on my own in 2014 from SJPdP to Santiago. I met wonderful friends and enjoyed the special ways I learned about myself while I was there "alone". Next year, my husband and my brother want to go with me on the Camino. I would have preferred another route...

    Camino Family - April 2017

    I travelled alone to SJPdP to what I thought was going to be my solo journey, however from Day 1 found a wonderful family who welcomed me with open arms, we've looked for each other, cared for each other, shared lots of stories and experiences together. This is what the Camino is all about...

    Family of four preparing for 3rd Camino Trek

    Hello All! As we prepare for our third trek across the Camino, I wanted to get ideas and thoughts on how the Camino Frances Route has changed in the past few years.

    Booking hotels in Advance for May

    What you need the camino provides.

    Today the 10 of may 2016 it is 1 year since I took my first steps out of SJPdP on the road to Santiago. After posting here and putting my name on the calender, I was ready to go on the camino and meet my camino family. But my biggest fear was that I was going to end up walking alone. Or walking...

    Bodhi On The Way: Le Puy to Finisterra, July-Nov. 2015 with a 2 yr. old

    Hello all, We are a young family (American-English) who have recently completed the 1000-mile Le Puy-Finisterra walk.

    Notes on a family's Camino Ingles in August 2009

    We recently walked to Santiago along the Camino Ingles using John Walker’s (JW) useful guide. It truly was like having somebody showing us the way and the information contained in it made our pilgrimage that much easier. We set off on Monday 3rd August and we were incredibly lucky with the...
