“I have read and reread many parts of this book. If you’re looking for long-term inspiration, whether or not you plan to journey on the Camino, this is the right book.”
Welcome to Camino Times Two, a corner of the Internet dedicated to exploring and sharing the iconic long-distance hiking routes across Europe called the Way of Saint James, or the Camino de Santiago.
The blog is a collection of my own stories from the Chemin du Puy (the Camino trail from Le Puy to St. Jean Pied-de-Port, France), the Camino Frances, and the Camino del Norte, as well as FAQs, lists, links to Camino news from around the world, quotes and songs to inspire your journey, and reviews. There’s a lot here, so use the “Categories” drop-down on the right sidebar to find what you’re looking for. Or, if you’re here for the first time, here are a few of the most popular places to start:

In addition to the resource blog, you’ll also find information about my award-winning travel narrative Walking to the End of the World: A Thousand Miles on the Camino de Santiago, which is the story of my husband Eric and my first pilgrimage walk in 2015, starting in Le Puy, France, and ending 1,000 miles later on the Atlantic Coast in Finisterre, Spain.
“May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds. ” – Edward Abbey
