In 2014 I set off to walk the Camino de Santiago but for various reasons I never made it.
Although I have no regrets about abandoning the walk, it’s always played on my mind that I never completed the pilgrimage. This year I’ve decided to start again, but my starting point will be St Germans in Cornwall, rather than St John Pied de Port in France. To read more about the reasons why I left the Camino and why I am going back, please read Why I’m Walking My Cornish Camino.
The walk will take me along the Cornish Celtic Way then St Michaels Way, the South West Coast Path before getting the ferry from Plymouth and joining the Camino del Norte in Santander. I will be completing the walk in stages to fit the pilgrimage in around my full time work.
If you are interested in walking the Way of St James yourself, you can find more information at Way of Saint James in Galicia or The Pilgrimage Routes to Santiago de Compostela. More information on the Cornish Celtic Way can be found here, St Michael’s Way here and here, and the South West Coast Path here.
