    One day at a time, one photo at a time...

    We're all out here, waiting for the new normal to coalesce - and for the day when we can walk the camino again. These are undoubtedly hard times, on many levels. Lest we mire in the difficulties, many of us are turning to remembrances of walks past to keep our spirits up. So here is a place to...

    Post-Camino Callings

    Hi again Peregrinos. It´s always good to return here and know that there is a "Camino World" despite the situation. In January I went abroad to do volunteer work for a while. It was fine but it did not last long. I had kind of overestimated myself as the Camino made me feel like Superman. But...

    Your All Time, Absolute BEST Camino Moment!

    Over the past weeks, out walking in our sleepy South Coast, New South Wales town of Culburra Beach, my thoughts inevitably turned to the Camino and in particular to the countless wonderful experiences I’ve had whilst on camino. Many experiences came to mind, so I examined those experiences in...

    Documenting our Caminos - Diaries, blogs, photos, etc.

    I have been amazed at the detailed descriptions that some people can provide years after they have walked the camino. I assume that in most cases, they take photos and make notes in some format or other. How do you document your journeys, other than the thousands of phone/cameras files? (This...

    Returning & Friendships

    Hi, So first question - would it be possible at all to create a "returning home" section in the forum? I think it would be helpful to have have a space where these threads are gathered. Specially for "going home" newbies like me. Anyhow. I have a question for you forum dwellers. It's a rather...

    I sit here at work. my wife and I are finally home from our Camino/UK trip. I continually cycle through the hundreds of photos and people we met along the way. There was so much and I seem to remember every step. It feels like it happened yesterday, but also like it was last year. We had...

    Staying fit after the Camino

    I have just finished walking the Camino Frances for the second time. Like last year when I had finished, I am now super fit. At least, my legs are so strong. I love being able to walk up steep hills effortlessly. However, last year, over time, I gradually lost that fitness and by the time I...

    Cyborg Turtle’s Reflection Beyond Post Camino Thoughts

    Addendum: All is well in my world but everyone has moments of weakness and I suppose I am no different. I wrote this back in July 1.5 months after the camino. I was at my weakest and was ill. I’m still feeling less that 100% and tired but much better. By sharing my thoughts my hope is to...

    Reflection on trekking the Camino Frances

    Reading the Mars trilogy by Kim Stanley Robinson, I came across this passage that reminded me of some of the more obscure parts of the Camino Frances and a segment of the Camino Norte which I hiked in early summer 2017. “I whacked on, enjoying the new nature of the problem. Here all the trail...

    Camino as a balm for grief

    I returned a couple weeks ago from walking the Portuguese from Porto to Santiago with my husband, Stuart. On my 9th day of walking, somewhere near Caldas de Reis, I got news from my sister that my mother died that morning. I knew that she was in decline before I left for Portugal, but did not...

    Pilgrimage back home from Santiago

    Next year (2018) I'll be 80 young and after many Caminos since 2007 I think it to be time and return "home" from a last pilgrimage. I should fly to Santiago de Compostela, walk to Pamplona, from where to fly back home. I hope to still be very fit for walking, but the transatlantic flights...
