Greetings from two bicigrinos (who try to be considerate of peregrinos!) there are plenty of Peregrinos on the Camino Francès, thoigh not many Brits. We’ve taken a detour today to Yuso and Suso monasteries: fanstastic!

We're in the Fisherman's Lodge, in Ambasmestas. It's very hot and we've walked 34.5kms today. Walk up to O Cebreiro tomorrow. Reccomend this albergue. Got twin room in a row of wooden chalets. Big garden and a pond. Clean and reasonable.

When I walked CF from SJ to Santiago in September/October 2016 I can say from start to finish I met and spoke to whilst walking or over a coffee/beer etc as little as 15 Brits. Didnt bother me in the slightest of course, had the pleasure of meeting folk from all over the world. The Group of friends I did make we adopted a house rule, no phones at the table as quite rightly many found it unsociable.
Horses for courses as they say.

Too many and too often!

Despite living pretty close to the Caminos we Brits are a surprisingly small % of the total. Way outnumbered by Americans. Not that far ahead of Korea and Ireland: a surprise given how far distant Korea is and how much smaller the population of Ireland is. These figures come from the 2019 statistics summary.

As nice as it is to get live updates from the Camino its far more more important that you savour the experiences and not be stuck on your phones. I used to do the odd social media update after 10pm lock down and nights out before I drifted off into a well earned sleep.
