Camino Planning Workshop

Thursday 29 July 2021 | Jumilhac-le-Grand | 25€

*** Fully Booked ***

My workshops have proved to be very popular and as a result I’m planning a third, this time in the north of the Dordogne at Jumilhac Le Grand.

If you are curious about the Camino de Santiago? Or one of the many people who watched the TV series Pilgrimage and thought “mmm…I’d like to do that.” Or maybe you have a friend (like me) who will wax lyrical about their amazing experience? Regardless of your reasons, you are here reading this information and if nothing else, you’re curious.

Come along to my workshop and I’ll provide you with all the tools that you need to start planning your own Camino!

The feedback from other workshops has been wonderful!

” You taught us everything we would ever need to know about walking the Camino. You gave us so much information help and advice that I know we will have a far better experience on our walk than we ever would have before. Your presentation was so professional and all of the handouts are invaluable

A Day with Pilgrims

Gosh it felt good to spend the entire day talking about all things camino!

Yesterday I hosted my first Camino Planning Workshop. I’ll be honest I was more than a little nervous; it’s been a long time since I planned any kind of training course and it feels like a long time since I walked the camino. I’d organised these planning days in 2019 and like so many other things they were all cancelled. Now, as France opens up and life returns to some kind of normal it felt like a good time to bring the workshop out of hibernation.

Camino Frances Autumn 2021 (Fully Booked)

From the French Pyrenees to the Spanish Navarra

2 September 2021 – 11 September 2021 | 370€

The Camino de Santiago, or the way of Saint James, is not one but many paths that lead to the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela where it is said, the Apostle James is buried. There are hundreds of routes across Europe and five that lead directly into Santiago. The Camino Francés (French Way) is what most people think of when you mention the camino and is perhaps the most famous walking route in the world. In recent times, since its resurgence in the late 1990’s, the Camino Frances starts in the French village of St Jean Pied de Port and leads pilgrims over the Pyrenees into the Navarra region of Northern Spain and the incredible Pilgrim albergue and Monastery at Roncevalles.

Our Camino will follow one of the most beautiful sections of the Camino Frances and offers us a genuine taste of this most famous walk. We’ll start our adventure in St Jean Pied de Port in France and end in Logrono, the capital city of the Rioja region of Spain, full of fine restaurants, cafes, shops, museums and tapas!

Autumn is Coming

It feels like, over the weekend, our Dordogne summer abruptly ended and autumn has already started; although I’m reliably informed that the sun will be back in a few days. I was also told today that, due to the odd weather this year, the French grapes are being harvested earlier than they have been since the 16th century. All is not lost though; the warm wet spring and a very hot summer means this could be a very good year for wine! And for us today, the cooler temperature and cloudy skies made for perfect walking.
