Navarrete to Nájera

Extracts from my book My Camino Walk - A Way to Healing (Chapter 10) I ask Jennifer what made her decide to walk the Camino. She explains that someone had persuaded her to have an angel card reading done. “Angels are inner companions,” she explains. “They help guide you to where you need to be in your life. I [...]

  Leaving Logrono Extracts from My Camino Walk - A Way to Healing  Chapter 9 by Timothy L. Phillips (IslandCatEditions) “…….the next significant stopping place is Navarrete, only thirteen kilometres away. However, to travel to the next major refugio in Nájera would be too much for me, so I am quite content with a shorter travelling day.” [...]

The Camino Frances continues

2020-02-06T00:07:46-05:00By |Uncategorized|0 Comments

Every Monday, I walk 16 km around Toronto with a group of Camino aficionados. They are people who have walked the Camino or are about to: old-timers as well as neophytes. It’s delightful, that there are such beautiful green open spaces in a major metropolis, far from the sounds of any traffic.  Inevitably we share stories recounting our exploits [...]

Exciting News!!

Yes, the long-awaited print edition of my book: "My Camino Walk - A Way to Healing" (IslandCatEditions) is out and will be available for order either through Amazon or from me direct. Just a temporary glitch is that Amazon want to ensure that I am the author. I can vouch for that although there were times during the writing where  [...]

Fighting with nuns

2020-02-06T00:07:46-05:00By |Uncategorized|0 Comments

Why would I pick a fight with nuns? I seem to bump into several of them walking the Camino. I’m walking for spiritual reasons. They’re  walking for religious reasons. As I mentioned in my book “My Camino Walk - a Way to Healing,” (published 2016 by IslandCatEditions) when I walked in 2010, I met a nun from California. She [...]

 The Camino continues….

  It's been more than a week after I arrived in Santiago de Compostela at the end of my 1000 km walk from Seville. Because of an unexplained and continual longing for sardines and vintage port, I ended up traveling to Porto to relax, catch up on sleep and indulge (in moderation) my desire for such things. Why the [...]

Relaxing in Port

2020-02-06T00:07:47-05:00By |Uncategorized|0 Comments

The title of this posting seems a little decadent as if it were some rather extravagant spa treatment. I decided to make the journey to Oporto in Portugal once I completed my walk from Seville to Santiago de Compostela. During my daily journey of walking northward, I found myself thinking about grilled sardines. It became almost a fixation - [...]

Arrived in Santiago de Compostela

2020-02-06T00:07:47-05:00By |Uncategorized|0 Comments

First sighting of Santiago This is my first time approaching Santiago de Compostela from the south. On the Camino Frances, the entry to the city is less charming and seems to be walking through an endless suburbia of busy roads. On this route, topping the brow of a hill on small roads, there it is in all [...]
