Camino De Santiago
exploring the world. one step at a time.
Do You Dream of Walking the Camino de Santiago?
When I decided to walk the Camino de Santiago I was never in any doubt that I would finish.
I had learned about this famous trail years before and almost a decade later I saw pilgrims walking the Camino Frances and I knew that I had to walk too.
My First Camino de Santiago Blog
I walked 800 kilometres across Spain and family and friends were anxious for news and stay abreast of my journey. So I kept a blog. When I decided to walk a second Camino, folks asked me to keep another blog again.
Over the years my blog became so much more that just notes to home. I write for me. I love the process of reflection. I lose myself in my thoughts, I learn from them, find focus in them. The process keeps me present and I’m more observant and alert to what is happening around me.
My blog became an essential part of my journey; indeed there are just two walks where I never blogged and I deeply regret that (although I never blog on group walks as it’s not my experience).
Over the years my blogs have been read by thousands of people worldwide (and still counting) and it has grown and evolved into this website. We may now spend weeks and weeks travelling around the world, finding new places to explore and walk but a great deal of Then We Walked is still about walking the Camino.

Are You Planning to Walk the Camino de Santiago?
Walking the Camino is no mean undertaking. Having walked thousands of Camino miles I have a wealth of knowledge. I use what I’ve learned to help others plan their own walks.
Over time I’ll keep adding posts about the routes that I’ve walked, including some of the less travelled routes like the Camino Lebaniego in the Picos de Europa.
I’ll also add posts about the gear that I use and the tools that I use to plan my own walks. I’ve run workshops at home here in France and over time I plan to include posts such as things to do in Santiago or Porto and even Tipping in Spain. I beleive that the Camino Experience is something that every can enjoy and if in some small way I can help others take their first steps then I’ll be a happy girl!
I have a decade of experience and I have led so many groups along the Camino that I feel well placed to offer help and assistance to others. If you are planning on walking the Camino the do feel free to ask me a questions!
