Episode22 - The Camino Francés, Part 3

2020 Camino Guides

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. This episode focuses on the meseta, probably the least-loved section of the Camino Francés. Many pilgrims are advised to skip this stretch if strapped for time, but what are they missing? Quite a lot, actually! Miguel Cura of Toronto, Canada gets us started in Burgos, telling tales from his walk between there and Carrión de los Condes. Then, Ross Fields takes over and leads us on to the next major city, León. Do you have opinions or questions on this part of the route? Join the conversation at facebook.com/CaminoPodcast.

Interesting to hear what people found to be memorable in each stage. For us at Carrion it was the singing sisters at the "other" albergue. We so much enjoyed that day and evening.
