Hello - my father and I started in Barcelona on September 10 - wd are now in Monzon heading towards the Aragonese and ultimately to Muxia!

We have met another Canadian in Montserrat - a lovely lady named Heather also walking to Muxia!

Other than that no one - empty - so far no problem finding accommodation - albergues are often closed but many hostels and other accommodations are available. The locals have been amazing so friendly and helpful and the scenery and weather have been excellent!

In a few days closer to the Aragones we might have to camp a night or 2 but so far so good!

Thank you to everyone who gave me advice before our journey especially for the route out of Barcelona to Montserrat! Montserrat was spectacular and we received the pilgrims blessing in front of the black Madonna and heard the famous boys choir - truly a special place indeed!

That’s it for now - will post more in a bit - Buen Camino!

Brent: Sounds like a great journey so far. Oh Montserrat! What a stunning monestary and inspiring location. Fitting you would meet a Camino friend there as well. Happy Trails. Cayou 38B9C433-98BC-4358-8EB1-1F7A964214C6.jpeg

Hello - I will for sure post a more detailed update soon with accommodations etc… looks like we are camping the next 1-2 nights due to no accommodations but I will keep you posted - we are in Bolea right now!
