There is so much to love about Um Caminho para Todos, a Portuguese blog whose title means “One path for all.”
First of all, it has a good and noble cause:
“The plan is to walk along the Via de la Plata, from Seville to Santiago de Compostela (almost 1000 km in just over a month), for a cause. The cause is the Promotion of Health and Well-Being, particularly among the overweight. The aim is to share through this blog all that this walk implies: training, difficulties, challenges, and rewards! To show that nothing is impossible if you put your mind to it!”
Second, it has many posts translated into English. The project description above is also translated into French, Spanish and Italian. See umcaminhoparatodos.wordpress.com/about/projecto
Third, there are accurate maps and resources of the Francés, Portugués, and Via de la Plata Camino routes. I recall looking at this page for maps for the Camino Portugués. Impressive!
And last but certainly not least, Luisa, the blog owner, has been walking stages of the Camino Real on the island of Madeira, where she lives. This new Camino caught my eye recently, and I am hooked on following her journey along the coast of this beautiful island.
I have heard many good things about Madeira, but never knew it had a Camino. In California, we also have a Camino Real, connecting the twenty-one Spanish missions established in the 1800s. Like Madeira’s Camino, it is not waymarked, and much of the 600-mile journey is connected through busy and dangerous highways. But take a look at the map below, and notice how the route hugs the coast of Madeira.
Madeira is now on my must-visit list, and I would like to walk at least some of this Camino Real at some point in my life. Like I always say, so many Caminos, so little time! 🙂
