At a moment when so many are struggling and in need of community, we decided to lead a Virtual Camino to awaken the pilgrim spirit in all of us.
After 20 years of walking the Camino de Santiago, I must confess I don’t think I have previously explored fully what it means to be a pilgrim. This year, with at least half of our tours canceled due to the pandemic, I have had occasion to really think about it.

As you are reading this post, tapas are being served day in and day out in bars and cafés throughout Spain.
I first walked the Camino de Santiago from St. Jean Pied de Port to Santiago in 2011. In the midst of my planning, a friend suggested I write about my Camino experience. While appealing, I knew that many personal accounts of the Camino had already been published. If I were to undertake the laborious process of writing a book, I wanted to be sure that it would be different from what already existed.
Camino de Santiago gastronomy has always gone hand in hand with its history. Since its beginnings in the XI century, St. James Way has been taking good care of its pilgrims.

We often write about the amazing seafood, soups, and wines of Galicia, but Tarta Santiago or Saint James Cake is a local sweet that is worthy of its own blog post.
We found over the years that many of our pilgrims come not knowing what to expect from Spanish food – what does it taste like?
You may have never heard of Lugo, but it is one of the oldest and most beautiful cities in Spain. Founded by the Romans 2000 years ago, it started as a small group of houses dedicated to the Celtic god of light, named Lugos.
