Should we change plans?

It’s perfect weather for the Camino but I’m so glad we’re not supposed to be out there now as we’d never have made it due to the fact that we are flying. June 23rd seems a long way off but I can’t help wondering whether we sit back trusting that everything will be OK or change plans and look to training it instead. For those of you following this blog though, you’ll know that we’ve already exhausted that option as very expensive and long and not ideal. I’ll trust to the Universe and see myself walking those wonderful paths with [...]

Bus, not sure, taxi???

At the moment all is organised except getting from Cahors at the end of the walk back to Rodez for the flight. Now, I’ve been told that there’s one bus at 3.00 so if we get that, the flight is long gone especially as it takes over 2 hours!! Teresa has been given so other information, although as I write, I’m not sure what. Fingers crossed. I’ve been told that we need to go the night before but of course we can’t and I suppose had we known this, we could have booked an extra day but too late now [...]

Who’s joining us this time.

Teresa and I have done the first two sections of the Camino on our own and it’s been such a lovely experience. Teresa would be more religious than me but I feel it’s true to say that we are both spiritual and there’s something wonderful about the peace and quiet of walking this historical path. Often we are the only two people for miles and that solitude allows great time for contemplation and thinking. We can happily walk along for short periods not saying a thing but most of the time we’re pointing out sights, marvelling at the spectacular and [...]

Back on the Camino – June 2010?

Getting very excited as I start to plan the 3rd part of the Camino. Heading off in June this time so that in itself will be an experience and hope that there will be 4 of us going too. This time we revisit Conques and start from there with the knowledge that it’s a little down hill into the valley and then a slog up to the chapel where we can ring the bell – looking forward to that. Looking forward too to some wonderful warm and sunny weather to get those legs tanned. Teresa and I had such a [...]

walking in France on the Camino

As you, who are regular readers will know, last year, Teresa and I started off walking the Camino. We opted to star in Le Puy in France and walk to the French/Spanish border and then across Northern Spain to our destination in Santiago de Compostella. So far we’ve done two sections, 10 days overall and are loving it. The walk is taking us through wonderful France scenery and do places we would otherwise probably not visit or even find. I’ve decided to set up a separate blog to post on and will get that organised in the next few weeks [...]

My Camino experience – part 1

My friend Mark is back in the States and although I’m sure he’s delighted to be home, I guess he’ll be missing being out in the air and having all that space to think. Sometimes it’s not until you have it that you miss it when it’s gone. I know I did and that was only after 4 days. I haven’t seen mark’s photos yet but I do hope he sends some and then I’ll share them with you. Until then, I felt it was time to share a little of our story and sites on the Camino…Not sure how [...]
