Efren is currently doing the Camino Portugues and has posted his first several youtube vlogs.

Equipment vlog, which is quite detailed regarding the photo and drone equipment he is using

Day 1 leaving from Porto

He has recently completed the Francigena using a wheeled cart for his pilgrimage.

His website and other social media is:

He's great at producing very informative and entertaining short videos about his many Caminos and other ventures. The film quality is excellent. He also has Spanish versions to some of his vlogs, which are useful for those wanting to improve their Spanish listening skills.

I also enjoyed the vlog from Alaskan pilgrim on youtube. She recounts her Camino Frances done fall 2018. She has an episode of equipment she took and a follow up episode when she got home discussing equipment she used and didnt use during her walk.


RIP 2019

Great vlog indeed. Subscribed. Can you suggest more vlogs like his?
Efren's is one of the best but a few more to look for in no particular (well actually alphabetical) order are;

Chica and Sunsets- Husband and wife team.
Hank Leukart- Just one video but I thought very good. Incidentally his Neverending NZ story is great too.
I'll Get There- is one currently in progress, we'll see how it goes.
Lex Ellis- Like Efren has lots of lovely drone footage.
Samantha Plavins- A really nice personal account.
World Towning- A family of four walking the Camino Frances.

But just search Camino Frances vlog on Youtube, there are loads.

There are so many on YouTube, here are some of the ones I enjoyed the most:

I WOULD WALK... - Alexandra Driss. This features numerous interviews with other pilgrims that Alex encountered on her journey. It's from start to finish, so is quite a long video, but well worth the watch IMO.

A very honest and open hearted man describes his whole journey, his feelings, doubts and discoveries along the Way. It's a very realistic representation of what it can mean to some people

EL CAMINO DE SANTIAGO III, lo que se vive ahí, pura emoción....Isasaweis
This one is in Spanish and really touches on some of the emotions that one can experience along the journey. However, it's not a video journal, rather a personal monologue about one person's experience.

Almost 2 hours of video, but really goes into a lot of depth about the pilgrim experience for a number of pilgrims featured in this video.

These four vlogs are ones that I found particularly moving, especially after watching the second time after having completed my first Camino in 2018
