I've returned to the UK from living and working in India and I'm ready to finish the planning for my pilgrimage and start before the end of the year.

Are there any perigrinos out there that would wish to meet, to share fellowship, share facts and insights for the newbie

Unfortunately I'm not in the NE of England; I'm Irish. I did the Camino Frances in 2015 from St Jean to Finisterre and am departing on my second Camino Frances on Thursday to Santiago and then continue on to do the Camino Portuguese (Hopefully/if financially viable!). Although relatively inexperienced as a hiker, I'd be glad to share my Camino experience, advice and stories with you. I traveled alone for the camino but I met friends that I now still speak to most days online. Send a message if you want info/advice. I kinda envy you if this is your first camino, my first was hands down the best experience of my life.

It was somewhere between late June and early August I think. Probably the peak time but never had any problems with accommodation etc. When are you thinking of starting?

thank you there's no activity within 150 miles of me

Have you seen the note on the bottom saying "Remember too, that we have regional groups who organise their own activities. Get in touch with the office to find out where you nearest group is; or if you’d like to start your own!"

Also, forum member @Sheffield James might be able to help you ;-)

Buen Camino, SY

i think that id like to reach out and if there are any peregrinos near me to get something going here
You could always start up your own Camino Facebook group.. I did when I returned from my Camino and now have almost three thousand members. So much support has come from this and, you may also be surprised to find out that there are other people near you who are also looking out for local company, encouragement and support. All good wishes.

Facebook may be an option for consideration

Personally, Facebook is not for me

I organise a walking trip every other year with my mates and we are based in Co. Durham. We have done the Camino Frances from Leon in 2008, the Camino Portugues from Porto in 2011 and the Camino Ingles last year from Ferrol.
If you forward your contact details, we could perhaps arrange to meet up?
