Spain, the Camino and Walking

I fell in love with Spain in the 1980s and I kept going back over and over, every time discovering something new. We honeymooned in Spain and had family holidays in Spain and now we spend our winters in Spain.

In 2013 I discover the Camino de Santiago and decided to walk 800 kilometres solo across Spain . It changed my life.

We’re now on a mission to walk across Spain and beyond along famous (and not so famous) hikes and trails around the world.

Then We Walked Events in 2023

Walk with me on a small group escorted walk along the Camino Portuguese in September 2023 or join the walking group for a few days along the Camino Frances! Either way the walk will change your life!

Discover Spain

I fell in love with Spain in 1985. It felt like coming home. Discover the villages, the food, the wine, the history, the beaches, and the mountains. Spain offers something for everyone!

I Walked The Camino. We Retired. Now We’re Travelling and Walking the World.

I guess we’re passionate about a lot of things but Spain, the Camino, walking and travel are right up there, and we’ve waited half a lifetime to get started.

Welcome to Then We Walked! It’s true that walking the Camino de Santiago changed my life but I’d loved Spain for decades. Now we’re retired we’re on a mission to explore other Camino routes less travelled and explore the world too… one step at a time.

It doesn’t matter who you are or where you want to go, we hope to inspire you to discover Spain beyond her glorious beaches, to walk her life changing Camino trails and maybe take your first steps on your bucket-list trails and make your own travel dreams come true.

Ready to Take on the World. One Step at a Time.

We love our life in France but we also have a burning desire to keep walking, and maybe afford a little second home in my favourite corner of Spain. Growing old is a gift and as a wise young Bedouin told me in Dana in Jordan, every sunrise is a new opportunity; here’s our latest news.
