Back Home From 4th Camino


I just returned home from another relatively short Camino. Two travel days, one night in Rabanal, one night in Ponferrada, ten days of walking, and two days in Santiago.

Winter Way guidebookI was craving a less crowded walk, so decided to do the Camino Invierno, aka Winter Way,  from Ponferrada.  This is definitely a less-trodden Camino, but little did I know that I wouldn’t see a pilgrim until the third day! This was by far the most challenging Camino for me because some of the stages were very long, and a few days there were no places to stop. But, I walked through incredibly beautiful landscapes, connected with some locals, and survived some unforeseen challenges.  In short, it was a Camino of solitude at the beginning, a test of my fortitude in the middle, but throughout it all, left me with a feeling of extreme gratitude. I will write more about it later.  I did some posts on Instagram and Facebook if you want a sneak preview of my adventures and a few pilgrim hacks, see:

Thanks to all those who purchased patches while I was away! I am back to my usual fast turnaround of mailing them within 3-5 business days. As promised, I made a donation to Egeria house from the sales of patches  while I was on the Camino. I visited Sybille Yates and met more of the volunteers from the Camino Chaplaincy. I wholeheartedly support what they do, so if you are looking for some Camino camaraderie while you’re in Santiago, or a good cause to donate to, check out  Egeria.House

Hasta muy pronto!
