    Pilgrim's Halt on Voie de Tours

    Greetings to all pilgrims. I have a dream to open a Pilgrim's Halt in the Charente Maritime about 4km on from Mirambeau. I've spoken to a lot of Pilgrims on this route and it seems there is a lack of reasonable accommodation in some sections. The idea would be to offer bed, evening meal...

    RE: First Time Pilgrim - Saying Thank You!

    Dear Friends and Fellow Pilgrims, I am in shock that I received such a great response to my initial post. It is very heartwarming to know that there is a community of individuals out there that sincerely care for and support others in need. Everyday, as I reviewed the board, I was able to read...

    ❤A year ago today a dream came true

    A year ago today 26th Feb 2016 I set off form SJPD not knowing I had only one goal and that was to enjoy the adventure ahead. I had not planned past day 1 as I didn't want to put any pressure on time or what I needed to do each day. I would walk till I wanted to rest and just see how it went. I...

    Life as a forever Pilgrim...

    When I was told walking the Camino di Santiago would change my life, you can’t blame me for having my doubts. That’s a very bold statement. I consider myself to be quite a conscious person. Awake to the separations of society, aware of thoughts distinguishable from the soul and filtered to the...

    Are pilgrims sheep to be fleeced?

    Bom dia from Santarém! A couple of remarks. There was a discussion during breakfast (at N1 - nice place). A local judge thought the Camino should be more exploited. I can see her point and that exploitation is to an extend unavoidable and even necessary. Hard working people deserve an income...
