Hi folks. It doesn't feel like I last posted two weeks ago. But there is time again. Yesterday, I volunteered with Camino Society Ireland and while it is getting quiet with departing pilgrims here in Dublin, it may not be quiet on the Camino. I am constantly reminded of life on the Camino via social... Continue Reading →
Walking Dublin’s Celtic Camino
Bray to Dun Laoghaire - 16km - 20th August 2022 I recently had the chance to walk part of the Bray Celtic Camino. It was not the first time I had walked it - 2017 being my first time. I walk with friends on other occasions, but on this occasion I was with fellow pilgrims... Continue Reading →
Some more walking while the evenings get darker..
It's that time of year... I've seen the first Christmas trees. The advertisements have been playing on radio and TV for the last few months and people have started to get in to that frame of mind. Christmas! Of course, my mind is a million miles away and I'd rather be following arrows than making... Continue Reading →

For someone who is so used to the flat plain meseta, this was different, but not any less enjoyable. Galicia is a beautiful part of the world and there were times where my brother...

The bag is packed, I'm ready to go.........ok! enough of the singing! The neighbours will start to complain. But I am pretty much ready. I bought a new Samsung phone charger cable, walking trousers and a few items to restock my first aid kit during the week. So I am set. And forgive me if... Continue Reading →
8 weeks and counting
So the 7th of May can't come quick enough. I've been secretly counting down since I came home from Burgos, but let's keep that between us. We are not yet into Camino season but already, the number receiving the Compostela in Santiago is rising. I wonder what May will be like. But this time I... Continue Reading →
Medieval Irish pilgrims to Santiago de Compostela
If you are in Dublin, take a walk from the Liberties, past the Guinness Storehouse, past Thomas Street, keep walking until you see Christchurch Cathedral standing tall in front of you.This is the Dublin Camino and the direction medieval pilgrims walked to board their ship bound for Spain. During your same walk, keep an eye... Continue Reading →
Checking in & future walks
Hello there. Just dropping in to say hi. While I don't blame you if you don't recognise me, my posts may be a bit more frequent now. I haven't been writing as often as I would like. The week goes by and before you know it, it is the weekend and I usually have plans... Continue Reading →
