    Hot off the presses — Guide 2019

    Ender is at it again, here is a guide to the Olvidado. I have no doubt it will have the same effect on this camino as his work on the Salvador did about ten years ago. Go now to beat the crowds! It is in Spanish, but lots of the information is easy to decipher. I will be translating it into...

    From one first-timer to another

    As I approach the one year anniversary of my journey along the Camino, I find my mind drifting back to the crunching of the rocky sand path under my shoes; the repetitive, meditative beat of a boy trekking across the emptiness of the Spanish plains. A boy who never expected to do embark on such...

    Hello fellow pilgrims, One thing I noticed before I started my Camino was that there doesn't seem to be much English information online for the Le Puy route in France except on this forum (and some small blogs that are sometimes difficult to find and rely on). I did my best to set up a nice...
