The return of an errant blogger…

What a bad blogger I have been…five months without a post. I have suffered a serious bout of bloggers block. But I can’t ignore my partner’s nagging any longer – he says that “I owe it to my followers” to write a new post. To me, that sounds rather pompous – I doubt if anyone has been waiting with bated breath for my next words of wisdom.

In the hope of breaking the mould these few words are written to accompany the video I have put together of this year’s Camino Mozárabe. Last month I made a presentation to a local club and I am pleased to say the video was well received. It is rather long at 53 minutes but I didn’t detect any snoring or yawning emanating from my audience and we had a lively Q&A session afterwards. All in all it was rather a success.

So, in order to keep David happy, here is a link to my masterpiece – which is broken down firstly into camino sections, ie Mozárabe, Via de la Plata, Sanabrés, Fisterra, and secondly day-by-day, giving destinations and distances.

Perhaps a good excuse to sit down with a cup of tea or a glass of wine and lose yourself in the beauty of the Spanish countryside and some jolly good music (as I write, it has already been viewed 999 times).

    Oh Maggie – this has been wonderful – a journey down memory lane from Merida and wonderful things to look forward to in 2016 when I start out from Malaga – thank you for sharing your amazing journey with us – I look forward to more correspondence via email soon. Surely this has to inspire more folk to embark on such a memorable experience.

    Great movie Maggie. Loved seeing the flowers again. …and memories of that climb out of Ourense. ..l walked via Oseira afterwards…beautiful too.

    Hmm… maybe l should do something with my collection of photos during my 3 months adventures on the Camino this summer… lol

    Light and Love Ingrid

      Lovely to hear from you Ingrid. I miss all the contact I had with folk when I was walking. I meant to take the Oseira route but somehow missed it – it was still a lovely walk (apart from ‘that’ hill) but I would have loved to see the monastery. You should have a go at making a video presentation – it is a great way to relive your camino.
      Keep in touch

    Hi Maggie,
    I watched your film. I really enjoyed it. Danny Boyle would be proud of you. Was that bloke with guitar and the white socks really playing that? That’s very difficult. Manuel de falla would be proud of him. The same cannot be said for the nun in the church you wouldn’t turn your chair round for her.

    Welcome back dear Maggie and well done on an absorbing film. It brought it all back to me, of all the days I waited for your post and wondered how you were getting on! I could almost smell the incense at the pilgrims mass and what a brilliant song to finish your journey. Well done also to David on raising so much money for Cudeca. What’s next for you now or is it too soon to say?
    much love and keep us posted xx

      Hello Mary. I was only thinking of you the other day when I was out walking – I was a bit surprised that you had not made a comment on my long overdue post. And when I got home there it was. Thank you so much for your warm welcome. I’m thinking about a late summer/early autumn Camino next year, but I just know my feet will be itching to get going by the time spring comes around.

    Awesome! Sure makes me yearn for another Camino! Thanks for a wonderful video filled with flowers, music, beautiful scenery!


I would love some feedback - tell me what you think.....
