I Walked The Camino. Now We’re Travelling The World.
I’m Colleen. I’m an English woman living in France. I’m a pilgrim and a traveller.
As a child I always knew that I had to travel.

In 2022 we retired and we’re on a mission to travel and walk (meander) our way around the world. If like us, you’re keen to travel and explore distant shores then we’ll share our itineraries, thoughts, experiences and lessons that we learned during our adventures.
