Just to Get Started - The Camino Experience - Your Pilgrimage, Your Way

Hi everyone,

My name is Nancy, and I am a long-time pilgrim and now a guide on the Camino Francés. A couple of years ago I started leading pilgrim groups from Saint Jean Pied de Port - for people who wanted to walk the Camino independently but who want some assistance, just to get started.

I work with pilgrims on all the pre-travel planning and preparation, then I meet their train or bus in SJPP, and then we are together on the trail for four days, as far as Pamplona. From there, they all...

Hi Nancy I am sure some people find this service useful but the one thing I really liked and attracted me to the camino was the fact you just turn up and learn as you go......no booking required.....except Orrison of course.......the hardest part was trying to work out how to get a bus ticket from the the station in BaYonne. Enjoy your September camino s.

Fiona, yes, many people do just that! I am one of them...I walked the Camino many times before I realized how many people would benefit from just a little assistance at the beginning. I have met so many people on the trail who 'wish' they had had some of the information I share with my pilgrims, before coming to the trail or in the first few days.

My service is not for everyone, but those who use it get really great value :)
