Episode 39 is live and it finally completes the five-part series focused on virtually re-walking the Camino Francés. If you really want to get in the Francés frame of mind, consider listening to them in sequence--Episodes 15, 21, 22, 25, and now 39!

Episode 39: 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. At long last, we reach Santiago de Compostela in this episode, after navigating the six final stages of the Francés. Sherry Kirkham of Ontario, Canada joins me for the first half, walking from O Cebreiro to Portomarín, and we talk about everything from squash soup to siesta failures to giant student groups. She's followed by Graham English of Alberta, Canada, for the home stretch, and Graham helps me to get in a suitably nostalgic frame of mind. An arrival three years in the making and the completion of this five-part series!

Dave, thank you very, very much for your podcast! My husband and I love listening and are thankful you’re putting up new episodes.
I was wondering if you knew how many days Graham English took to complete his walk that you spoke about on the podcast?

Thanks, Cathy! I'm pretty sure Graham's stages lined up with Gronze: Portomarín-Palas do Rei, Palas do Rei-Arzúa, Arzúa-Pedrouzo, Pedrouzo-Santiago. I don't know exactly how long he had for the full walk, but I think it was around five weeks.
