The reflection I did for the staff briefing at Chevalier on Monday morning. For nearly three weeks and 460 kilometres, I followed the pilgrim path of the Camino Frances, walking towards Santiago de Compostela...

The Camino Competition (aka, Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again?)

Ok, campers, here it is, the Camino Competition. From the depths if my ear worms come the following categories of road songs, as best I can remember them. This list took one hour on...

Camino 18 (Monday 11 November): Santiago again 0

Camino 18 (Monday 11 November): Santiago again

I made a conscious decision not to write poetry on the journey, leaving it perhaps for a later time, but I tried to find a verse or song for each day to borrow words...

Camino 17 (Sunday 10 November): Finisterra

I bade farewell to Brun and Tobias and headed down the main road towards Cee and Corcubion, which my iPad has attempted to autocorrect to Concubines. I wasn’t unhappy to be on the road...

Today was wet, dark and gloomy, and as always, it affected my mood, but all the serious walkers stopped at a cafe at the 11 km mark, joined by a bus load of Japanese...
