LIVE from the Camino going strong


Reporting from Ponferada. All is well on the Camino. Jess and I walked into the town today and things are good for us and a lively camino community. We wave to others accross the square, we sit and drink, vino tinto and laugh at the challenge we have faced. we see those left behind earlier.

the alberge is good, if a bit full. the food is great, and I challenge anyone to find the internet cafe I found in Ponferada! it is good but at least 15 minutes away from the albergue, but also close to signs for the camino....

Hope you are all well, we should be in Santiago in about 9 days.

live from the camino.

Hello Michael and Jess!

Always great to hear how life is live from the camino, especially for those of us setting off in a few days time.

I have been hearing scary stories about how overcrowded the albergues are and how muddy the paths are in places. Reading your happy message is a timely reminder that we shouldn't get too hung up on worrying about things in advance -we should take things as they come and remember to enjoy the experience.

Enjoy the rest of your camino and very well done for making it so far.

Buen camino
