@SYates ... all things being well (after last month I don't like to make assumptions!) we should arrive in Santiago on the 19th November and hopefully find our way to your door on the 20th... I'll be sure to let you know.:)

Due to low pilgrim numbers in winter, the forum meet-up is now 'please call/message ahead' only. You can reach me via this forum or via the contact info here: http://egeria.house/contact/ if you want to chat all things Caminos over a cup of something. Buen Camino, SY

I do hope that you are still out of hibernation come the last week of October (crossing fingers) :)

Looking forward to meeting you x

Not sure if you can drop by tonight. I have had to curtail my Camino yet again, due to IT Band issues. Ergo my reason for the invitation here. I will pm address.
Sorry, only just saw this! Wrote you a PM, BC SY

Hi everybody!

I updated the first post in this thread with up to date information here: https://www.caminodesantiago.me/community/threads/2018-open-house-forum-meet-up-in-santiago.48513/

However There will be no forum meet up this Monday and Tuesday, I am recovering from a nasty tonsillitis and don't want to pass this on as a souvenir to a poor pilgrim ;-)

Don't worry, I am nearly feeling 100% again, just being cautious ;-)

BC SY
Now rest well and drink some tea!

Sorry guys, this tonsillitis simply doesn't want to go away - so no Open House this whole week, sorry. I am now on antibiotics, hopefully that will do the trick. Buen Camino, SY

As the Anglican Chaplaincy, see https://www.caminodesantiago.me/community/threads/anglican-chaplaincy-in-santiago.55255/, takes its "summer break" we are back to normal, or whatever counts as normal in my life ;-)

Important Info! Please read first!

How to find my place:

The address is TRAVESIA do Carme de Abeixo, there are two streets with similar names in the neighbourhood. At least one neighbour in those streets, as I discovered, has had regularly pilgrims ringing her door bell. She was really gracious as I went over to apologize, but please make sure you come to the right place. To find my house (and not hers):

Follow the Camino to Finisterre until you see the sign pointing to the albergue Roots&Boots pointing to the left.

Turn right in the little street called TRAVESIA do Carme de Abeixo.
My place is less than 10m down that street at number four on the right hand side.

  • It is a white, wooden door, which is open (weather permitting).
  • SYates is written on the door bell.
  • If you don't see my name on the door bell, you are at the wrong house!

Please help me to maintain good relationships with my neighbours and don't ring/knock at the wrong door ;-)

S.Yates' Place

I will provide: Tea/Coffee, soft drinks, cookies/biscuits etc.

Costs: None, but you are welcome to bring drink/food to share with others and there might be a discreetly placed basket in a corner where you can drop a cent or two for the next supply of tea bags ;-)

Open House is Monday to Friday 16:00-18:00, but if you want to come earlier/later/on the weekend just drop me a note (contact details here: http://egeria.house/contact/ and I will be there and open the door for you!

Lets just see how it goes and I will take it from there. Looking forward to seeing you all & Buen Camino, SY

PS For all of you that are/were concerned about my privacy: When I envisioned living in Santiago, I already had it very clear in my head that I would share part of the house with pilgrims/friends, so nobody is intruding on my privacy ;-) The ground floor is 'open space', the first floor is 'invited only' space and the second floor is 'only my space'. ;-)
Wow,

Does this mean I can come by for a chat friday 27? I will probably reach Santiago that day, after my Camino de Invierno, and I would love to meet Syates, the Camino Legend...!

All that we are is the result of what we have thought.
Ok everybody, thanks to antibiotics, I am up and running again ;-) Door is open Monday to Friday, 16:00 to 18:00 (or longer, depending how chatty we all are ;-) For information on how to find my place in Santiago, see the first post in this thread https://www.caminodesantiago.me/community/threads/2018-open-house-forum-meet-up-in-santiago.48513/

See you soon and Buen Camino, SY
I'am glad that you are feeling better now.

Well I am about to walk over to SYates place right now, since I am in Santiago in one of the bars at the moment. I will try to behave! Oh, I am so shy of meeting new people! I will tell you all about it later!

Byyyye!

*BREAKING NEWS* I conquered my shyness and have just had a cup of coffee at SYates place! What a nice chat! What a house! Thank you SYates for your hospitality!

I urge every Pilgrim to stop by at her house for a while!

Well the taste is kind of a several decades old salty rust. But I like it a lot :)

I restrain myself from licking rusted light posts though ;)
Rusted light posts!!? So that is what it tastes like :0D I must try it then XOD

Just go ahead you two and hijack it ;-) as long as it brings pilgrims to my place ;-) BTW the vegemite was a gift from an Australian pilgrim, not from me.

Anyone who gets to Santiago and doesn't go to @SYate 's place is missing out on something special.
(And don't worry - it's not the Vegemite.;))
