3 years ago a group of my friends from Spain and I began walking the entire Camino de Santiago. As we all work, have families and other commitments, we decided to tackle our goal by doing portions of the trail over the course of many weekends. So we hope to finish in 5 years!
As you can imagine, it has been a wonderful experience for me on a personal level. My original days of guiding in 1999 had me walking through the tiny villages of the Pyrenees from Roncesvalles, the start of the Way in Spain. Being back on the trail following the yellow arrows has inspired me to make good on an idea that I have been touting for years.
I am happy, proud and above all excited to present to you…
On this journey, we will come down from Roncesvalles into Hemingwayâ€™s Pamplona and stroll through the vineyards of La Rioja. We will pass through hilltop villages connected by Roman Roads. And we finish up in the capital of the wine region, LogroÃ±o to have a glass of tinto – or two!
