I’ve had a few questions related to SIM cards. So this was my experience based on walking the Camino Frances in 2015 (From St Jean). I pre purchased SIM cards for France and Spain. I didn’t want to wait until hitting the first major town before being able to get a SIM card.Read More
I finished my Camino de Santiago about 7 weeks ago. And when I finished, I said that it would be a one-off, never to be repeated event. Mainly because it was so special, everything that I wished for, and so any other repeat performance could only be a poor comparison.Read More
I pondered this question often whilst walking. And my views changed a bit along the journey. And of course these are just my personal views. My Camino was no better, no more valid than any one else’s! This was just how I saw mine being a Pilgrimage rather than a Walk. But for me it ‘felt’ like a Pilgrimage from the start. I set out with the intention of walking a Pilgrimage, and I think that’s just what I got.Read More
One question that many people ask whilst planning their Camino revolves around budgets. How much do things cost and how much money do I need to take.
So I thought that I would share my budget as well as a few financial related tips. So here is my budget for the Camino Frances during May/June 2015. OK, first a disclaimer! You can probably walk your Camino on a budget of 25-30 Euros a day (as at 2015). That will mean staying in shared accommodation, eating cheap meals, picnic lunches, maybe doing some cooking yourself and so on.
OK, I said that I would share my Camino Revelations when I got to Santiago. I’m a bit late! But I’ve still been processing some things…. In a separate post later, I may share some of the more ‘Spiritual’ elements of my Camino. Not quite ‘burning bushes’ but it was close a few times! For now, I’ll talk about that whole issue of answers and questions. Early in my Camino I was searching for answers.Read More
