Spain 2016

This year we plan to take the car and then walk some sections of the Camino. We are aiming to visit places that are diversions from the main route, or away from it. Places of interest that were just to far for us to reach on foot and also other historical sites. We will post about our journey on Walking Around

Camino - 2013 and 2015

In 2013 we walked part of the Camino del Norte and then from Arriondas to Covadonga. Our time on this pilgrimage route is at
Walking Around May 2013. The posts run from there to July using the Walking Around blog archive.

Then in 2015 we walked again to Santiago, from Ribadeo along the coast to San Andrés de Teixido and then onto the Camino Inglés. This is on the blog for Camino 2015.

For posts on the original Camino walked see May, June and July of 2009, using this blog's archive.

'Camino Primitivo 2012' and 'Walking Around'

We left Plymouth on 22nd April for Santander to walk the Camino Primitivo from Tineo.
The full account of our time on this Camino is at Camino Primitivo 2012 at

Having walked the Camino Primitivo we are considering where we walk next. We may return to walk some of the Picos de Europa, or parts of the Camino again. We certainly hope to walk in the UK. You can follow our further walks on the Walking Around blog at

For those who haven't yet read it Terry's original walk to Compostela is below in the posts for 2009.

Camino Inglés 2011

We are ready for this year's return to the Camino. Just hoping the weather in Spain improves as it is very wet and stormy at present. We hope it is dry and not too hot, like Terry had in 2009, and certainly not as cold as last year. We will be walking the Camino Inglés from Ferrol to Santiago, a distance of about 118kms.
If possible we might post occasionally while walking on Return to the Camino and expect to add more when we get home.
Terry's original Camino boots finally wore out so we are both wearing new (broken in) boots this year.

2010 - return to the Camino

This year we are returning to Spain together to visit some of the places that Terry passed through last year. We will also be walking part of the Camino together. We are travelling by ferry as foot passengers, taking the train from Santander to Llanes and then on again to Oviedo to start walking part of the Camino Primitivo.
See Training for Pilgrimage to read about our preparations and training, or click on the title above to read about our return to the Camino.

Exeter Cathedral to Santiago de Compostela

My walk from Exeter to Compostela raised nearly £2,000 for Farm Crisis Network, as well as being a time of Pilgrimage. Thank you again for all your prayers and support as well as the generous donations to FCN

Leaving Exeter, 21st April 2009

Arriving in Santiago 28th May 2009

The photographs and early reflections on my Pilgrimage are below (Exeter to Santiago), as well as the original blog posts which run 'blogwise' Santiago back to the start in Exeter.

Camino Photographs and Reflections

The photos run from the beginning of Terry's Pilgrimage through to his arrival in Santiago (May 28th) and visit to Finisterre (June 1st). The blog then runs from that point backwards - to his first entry when making his preparations.

'First Reflections on my Pilgrimage' can be found below

'Reflections Along the Coast' is at the post for 2nd July.

'Further Reflections on my Pilgrimage' is at the post for Monday 22nd June.

We left Santander on 4th June, arriving in Plymouth and then home on the 5th.
