“What can we do to help the Camino?” is the most frequently asked question during this time when because of the pandemic many pilgrims will not walk this year.

“When will the pilgrims and visitors return?” is the anxious question asked by many albergues, hotels and other services along the Camino routes.

One thing we can ALL do is send them our best wishes and reassure them that we WILL return when we can.

@SYates I am wondering what happened with our volveremos-messages. Did they get published in the media we sent them to? Did albergue-owners and other businesses along the camino get to see them? How many messages have been sent? Has there been any reaction? 🤔
I'd love to find out.
