Three Caminos in One, 2019

This Camino blog began on April 18, 2019, the day I arrived in St. Jean-Pied-de-Port. My solo journey along the Camino Frances started on Good Friday, April 19th, and ended in Burgos on May 4th. Videos of my 16-day journey along the Camino Frances are included in Day 5, 8, and 16.

On May 5th I took the bus from Burgos to San Sebastian to meet up with Dave. His two-day solo journey on the Camino del Norte from Irun began on May 5th. Videos of his hike from Irun to San Sebastian are included in “Day 1: San Sebastian to Oreo.” Together we hiked for four days along the north coast before taking buses to Guernika, Bilbao, and Oviedo.

Oviedo was the starting point for our 19-day hike along the Camino Primitivo, May 14th to June 1st.
