Can a Walk Change Your Life?

It changed mine.  Join me on one of my adventures and see if it changes yours.

In 2013 we took a holiday in Northern Spain. I kept seeing hikers. I watched through the window of the car as we drove.  By Leon I was curious. By the Galician coast I was committed.  I sat on a beach, not far from Fisterra, on the Atlantic coast and my hand rested on the most perfect scallop shell.  The following year, at the end of my 800 kilometre journey, my husband presented me with that shell on the steps of the Cathedral in Santiago de Compostela.  My life has never been quite the same.

  • When I tentatively contacted Colleen to ask if I might join her Camino Taster, I was 71 and two months on from a serious stomach operation, so didn’t imagine that I presented a promising candidate for such a rigorous workout. However, to my surprise, Colleen immediately made space for me, did all the organisational heavy lifting and, three months later, I made the walk from Pamplona to Logrono and had a ball.

    If you want to walk the Camino, but are unsure how to go about it, Colleen will be your companion, your mentor and your friend. And some of her extensive knowledge will, inevitably, rub off on you!

Join me on an escorted group camino or a one-centred tour and stay adventure in Spain, France or Portugal

Some people say that you’re called to walk the camino.  I think that’s true and I think the same is true for travellers.  Some of us just have to travel.  We have to explore.

Whatever your reason, once you have decided and no matter how vague the idea, no matter how distant the plan… once you have decided, the desire will stay with you until you take those first tentative steps.  One of the obstacles that prevent us from going is the ‘how‘ and the second is more about just doing it.  I can help with both.  Join me on one of my escorted walking holidays or a tour and stay adventure.  Come walk with me.

  • Adventures are Paused…

  • COVID-19 has touched all of our lives.  It is clear that travel in 2020 is proving impossible and looking less and less likely in the near future.  As a result I have taken the decision to cancel all my trips.  Rest assured that I will be planning more adventures as soon as we’re able to travel! If you’re interested in joining me for a walk or an adventure then please do get in touch!

    In the meantime I’m researching new routes and spending time re-reading my blogs… and camino dreaming!
