Three Caminos in One, 2019

Many Camino routes end up in Santiago de Compostela. Which one shall we walk? After months of indecision, which included whether Dave would come at all, we finally came up with a plan. Here is how our plan evolved.

This second Camino is a mix of three different Caminos, solo along sections of the Camino Frances (Judy) and Camino del Norte (Dave) and together for the Camino Primitivo. Daily posts begin on April 18, 2019. You are welcome to follow our second journey here.

Our 2015 Camino Frances Journey

St. Jean-Pied-de-Port to Orisson
At the Leon/Galicia Border en route to O Cebreiro
Trinidad de Arres

Dave (my husband) and I first walked the Camino Frances together in autumn of 2015. We left St. Jean Pied de Port in southern France on my 70th birthday, September 10th. What a way to celebrate a new decade! We arrived in Santiago de Compostela fifty days later on October 29th, walking approximately 16 km per day with the shortest day being about 8 km and the longest, 32 km. No blisters, just lots of good memories and pictures. To read about our experience, visit our “Through Our Looking Glass” blog.
