May 24 - June 5, 2020 (with optional walk to the ocean).
This 12-day hike takes us through some of the most beautiful and rural countryside of Northern Spain. Definitely my favorite route.
May 31 - June 5, 2020 (with optional walk to the ocean).
This 5 day, 6 night walk is a unique opportunity to walk through beautiful and rural Northern Spain and will only whet your appetite for future walking.
June 6-9, 2020. The Santiago to the End of the World path is gorgeous - as you get closer to the ocean the scenery changes, the air is brighter, and that first view of the ocean after walking for weeks on land will be a sight you'll never forget.
Sacramento Pilgrims is a huge group of past and future pilgrims who regularly meet for social and educational get-togethers. They offer free classes on how to pack for the camino, what to expect, etc. They also have fabulous lectures and potluck dinners which will satisfy your post-camino blues (more on that later). Click on the links below to sign up for their listserve and their Facebook page.
American Pilgrims on the Camino (APOC) is a great resource for information about the camino and is where you can get your Pilgrim Passport before you leave.
Facebook will be an invaluable resource whilst you're on the Camino - in addition to wanting to add your new friends, a lot of information is shared that you'll want to know about whilst you're walking. I've created a link for you below but you just search for "Sacramento Pilgrims" in Facebook.
If you have a Facebook account be sure to join the American Pilgrims on the Camino page - a lot of active information is shared while you're on the camino and it's a great resource.
If you don't already have/use WhatsApp, then please download it to your smartphone and create an account (it's free). It is a text messaging app that runs on wifi - not cellular. Most of you will be only using the free wifi in Spain, rather than cellular which can cost an arm and a leg, so this app allows us to keep in touch with each other. In addition, it has GPS geo-tagging so if you get lost, we can literally find you or you can find yourself (LOL).
