    I have just done part of the Portuguese Way and would love to have an opportunity to do any of the other Camino routes,It was one of the best experiences in my Life❤

  2. By Marija Krulja

    I walked Camino Frances and parts of few different Camino routes in beautiful Spain, improved my Spanish and met lots of nice people.
    I would recommend it to everyone, it’s mix of challenge, friendship, amazing landscape, freedom, motivation, simplicity and all together unforgettable adventure!
    Now I would like to walk Camino Le Puy in France, learn some French and introduce my friend to Camino adventure.

    I’m planning on doing a week of the Portuguese Camino this August and would love to be able to do a second Spanish stage early next year. I am really looking forward to walking and discovering the beautiful countryside.

    2 years ago i decided it was time to strike off the most outstanding item on my bucket list – the Camino. I did the 1st part Le.Puy to Conquest & was a bit disappointed my travelling group wasn’t keen to proceed to Santiago. To cut a long story short, i took a wrong flight to Valenca (Portugal) but wrongly ended up in Valençia (Spain)! Met 2 lovely Spanish ladies who were also doing the Camino & we started from Saria & finally made it to Santiago, using sign language cos they don’t speak English & my Spanish sucks.
    My promise to do the Portuguese camino still stands. I would love to do the ocean route next year and hopefully i will not end up in the wrong country.
    And this time i make sure i spend extra time at the Cathedral.

    The last 6 years, I have been walking in Spain, Via de la Plata, Portugal, the Portuguese way and 4 times in Italy, Via Francigena. Each walk has been a fantastic experience. My next walk later this year will be in memory of my late sister.

  7. By Morgana Vitale

    I would love to do the Camino, fell in love with it when studying it in school and after watching the movie “The way”. Would love to explore it myself

  8. By Linda

    I have completed a short distance of the Camino and gained so much from the experience and would love to share this. I would love to be able to return and walk more of the French Way with my son James. Such a special gift to pass on to a adult child. He has such a beautiful soul, one that would soak up the peace, love and connectedness of the walk. Such an inspiring walk – to make one realise how vulnerable but centred one can be. Before I leave this beautiful planet I desperately want to provide more real adventures for my son James to reflect on life and our role here. What a better way than on the Camino.

  9. By Maria Bennett

    I retired in June. Have all the time in the world to walk the Camino! Happy St James!

  10. By Maureen McCarron

    I completed the Camino Frances in 2013, walking more than 400 miles. My only sister is intrigued by the idea but needs some incentive to take the time needed. We would use the pilgrimage to reconnect with each other, now both in our 60’s, and there’s all that lovely wine!
