- Camino(s) past & future
- First: Camino Francés 2002; most recent: Via Podiensis 2015
Let's re-walk the Camino Francés together! Whereas many of the pilgrim interviews on the podcast take a thematic approach, focusing on a few big picture issues, this series of episodes will dig more into the specifics of walking. Today's episode focuses on the glorious return to the mountains. After a week or so spent in the flatter meseta, this section of the Camino Francés, connecting León and O Cebreiro, involves two significant ascents with a stroll through the Bierzo valley in between. Rod Hoekstra of Seattle shares some stories on the León-Foncebadón stages, including a notable visit to a private museum in Villar de Mazarife. Bob Scheidt of Hoodstown, PA picks up the narrative from there, bringing his extensive experience as a walker and adventurer to bear on the walk onward to O Cebreiro.
