Camino Conversations: Would you like to be on?

Hola all,

In these days of staying at home, you you may (or may not know) I have started to do some things on youtube, indirectly linked to the forum of course. The series is called "Camino Conversations" and the first one was this talk I had with John Brierley.


I would like to keep interviewing "famous" camino people, but also like to hear from normal pilgrims about their walk.... so if you have walked the camino, and would like to share your trip/experience... please let me know.

We could talk about things like:
- How did you travel to/from the Camino?
- Things you forgot to pack... or things you packed that you did not need?
- ...and just in general, things about the trip you would like to talk about.. places you loved, food, ...

Things that someone that has not walked it would worry/ask about...

I am thinking about 10-15 minutes on skype that I would then edit and put up as another episode of "Camino Conversation".

If you are interested, would you please send me a PM?

Stay safe!
Ivar

Well, I saw this thread when it had only one reply. I had a pilgrim in mind before I even scrolled down halfway. With a chuckle I found out a nomination wouldn't be accepted but I did think that maybe an interview with the forum's most prolific poster would be good. But Chris, in post #2, has already turned down the honor. 😂

I nominate @Rick of Rick and Peg. He is seriously unique as he swings both directions on the pendulum. He is extremely witty/funny, but also a computer whizz, helpful to many here on the forum with their technical questions.

This was great ! John was a day ahead of me last fall on the Ingles. The alburgue owner where we stayed said " He likes to talk and he likes to drink...nice man " . I think if one is a walking wealth of information, it's good that he shares it and nothing wrong with sharing a glass or two. Thank you both for this interview...Stay safe

A fantastic idea
I don't ever watch too many of these interviews but this idea is exceptional
Really enjoyed this one
BTW I'm not on Skype..or zoom so that's me out of the picture re interviews!

I would be willing to do one if you thought I could be helpful to others. I’m 73, done the entire Camino Frances 3 times, & done parts 3 other times (in ‘08, 11,14,17, 18 & 19) can only carry 12 lbs. (5.4 liters), stay in mostly albergues, I am not an expert, but I do LOVE the Camino!!!!!! Use me if you'd like.

After watching your first two excellent interviews...it looks like you're looking for people who have an area of expertise (i.e. travel guides, etc.) & can give out valuable information. (I'm not that as I'm just a pilgrim)

Great idea, Ivar. Enjoyed the first couple of shows. There are soooo many interesting people who post here and this is a good way to hear their backstory and experiences.
Hope Spain's recovery and the subsequent re-opening of the Camino routes is sooner than you expect!!

Cheers!

This is a great idea Ivar. I would love to WATCH a really diverse range of people...men, women, young, 'mature', first timers, veterans, different nationalities, backgrounds, different abilities...you get the idea. (and I'd love to see a funny one too - maybe from Andy wild if he's still around?)

I'd nervously be willing to be interviewed myself if you are want some volunteers - I've only done one camino and I'm certainly not famous! (although I do have a creative camino book coming out later in the year - that is if the publisher can still honour our contract in this Covid 19 time). You asked for a PM...but I don't know what that means?

Not sure who would be interested but I would be happy to talk about my 2000 camino that led to the creation of the caminosantiagocompostella.com website that used to be used by pilgrims to be to get infrmation when there was so little available online.

Thank you, Ivar and John, for the discussion. I would have been walking the Mozarabe to the VdlP, Sanabrés, to Santiago right now, for my fifth Camino, and it was nice to hear from the man whose guidebook was my bible for my very first.
As a retired long time international flight attendant I have traveled the world, seen so many sights, met kings and queens (among them Queen Sofía, who I served on my flight), hiked in many countries (including the Appalachian Trail whose terminus is in my state of Maine), but no place, no one has touched my soul like the Caminos de Santiago. I anxiously await my return. It pains me to think I had layovers in Madrid on and off for so many years, and I didn’t know the Camino existed. The Way, and then John, introduced me to a world I never want to leave.
I so appreciate the Forum and while I don’t often comment, I take away so many good thoughts from those who do.
Thank you for providing news of a place we all treasure.
Lynn
