On this feast of St. James the Apostle, I am delighted to launch this new item on the blog: In 2020 my cousin, Janie, and I plan to walk the Camino de Santiago, Camino Francés (The French Way), which begins in St. Jean Pied de Port, France, is roughly 500 miles across northern Spain, and leads to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela. In order to accomplish this pilgrimage we’re going to need to get started now. This page is to document the journey, from training (I weigh in at 243lbs and that just isn’t going to work… need to drop at least 50lbs) to shoes, from plane tickets to side trips, from a compostela to albergues, and hopefully learn a bit of Spanish in the process. Looking forward to taking you along the way.
