Our chapter recently hosted a virtual presentation by a peregrina friend Christie Moon. She has walked it twice and has some great tips to share in her presentation. Over the last few years, Christie and other pilgrims have raved about the Camino Portugués with the spiritual variant. I was intrigued and was planning to walk it 2020. My plans are on hold until the pandemic subsides, but I still hope to walk in Christie’s footsteps someday.
Christie has graciously offered the presentation recording for our chapter’s YouTube channel and my blog. Her talk runs about 30 minutes. Enjoy!
Christie a mother of twins and a democrat. She quit her job in Seattle to walk the Camino Frances from St. Jean Pied de Port to Santiago in 2016. After that, she ended up in central California working all over Northern California as Senior Counsel over investigations for Sutter Health. With only about 17 days of vacation a year and a passion for Caminos, in 2018 and again in 2019 she walked the Coastal Camino with Spirtual Variant and had plans to do it a third time in 2020. Christie is also an American Pilgrims certified Hospitalera since 2019. Now she is planning her retirement in Portugal in a few years. She hopes to serve at donativo Albergue de Peregrinos in Rates Portugal from time to time when retired.
Special thanks to Christie for putting this amazing presentation together! If you have specific questions for Christie, leave a comment below, or send me an email and I’ll forward it to her.
