Some roads less travelled…

Welcome to the Trepidatious traveller camino blog.

I’m delighted to discover that the Lonely Planet guide to Spain, 13th edition, mentions my blog twice, describing it as ‘excellent’ and ‘terrific’. Wow, thanks LP (see image at bottom of page)

You might be planning a once in a lifetime camino adventure, but beware, you could easily find yourself an addict like so many others.

What started as an invitation from my daughter to join her along the Camino Frances back in 2013, turned into an annual event (for me, not for her). I’ve walked fifteen different camino routes over seven years, starting with the most well-known and popular route and progressing to more obscure and less travelled paths.

There are very many useful websites for gathering information, some of which are listed in my ‘resources’ link in the header. This blog mainly concentrates on my experiences of walking the various routes, either alone or with others I’ve met along the way.

From the first day of my first camino I have posted daily to this blog, initially as an aide-mémoire as I have a terrible memory and didn’t want to lose any experience to the mists of time. But for subsequent caminos I posted information that would be useful to others planning to walk less travelled routes.

Click on the links below for the camino that takes your fancy. You’ll find daily posts including distances, elevation profiles, info on accommodation and lots of photos for each stage.
