Happy New Year! I couldn’t think of a better way to kick off 2016 than to share a wonderful Camino blog for Friday Favorites. Maggie “Magwood” Woodward, an expat living in Andalucia, has walked three Caminos and documented her adventures on her blog, Trepidatious Traveller. She recently emailed me when she saw the story of John, the Ensuite Pilgrim whom she met while walking the Camino.
Maggie started the blog in 2013 to record her 800 km (500 mile) walk on the Camino Francés. She must have caught Camino fever because she walked the Camino Portuguese in 2014 and Camino Mozárabe in 2015. Lucky for us, because her blog is well organized and her writing style is exceptional. She photographs curiosities and displays them in artistic photo montages, such as the scallop shells pictured below.
I am particularly excited about her posts on the Camino Portuguese because I’ll be doing part of this route in late May, the same time of year that Maggie walked it. She also has a great Camino Resources section. Check it out and follow the Trepidatious Traveller at www.magwood.me.
