Camino Frances: Our Trek Across Spain

For those who are interested in trekking the Camino de Santiago across Spain, popularly known as the Camino Frances in 2020 and 2021, (or for those who are just interested in vicarious travelling across another country) we have just completed revising our blog of that route.

For us our hike in 2016 along the Camino Frances came after 18 months of struggling. One of us experienced a collapse in their life after a year of loosing almost everything and experiencing extreme online harassment from a former colleague, we began to lose a family member to video games, and we both began to struggle with questions surrounding our work-life balance. In short we were lost. The Camino began for us a last ditch effort to save ourselves and along the route showed us the way forward. This is likely the reason that 6 months later we were back on the Via Podiensis in France and shortly after that on the Camino Portuguese and the Camino Finisterre. Hiking and being outdoors can be wonderfully addictive.

Today we have published our full trek along the Camino Frances from St. Jean Pied de Port in France to the Cathedral in Santiago Spain. For those interested, we hope you enjoy, learn and are inspired to get outdoors and hike!
