Love the Camino in 2013 with the Heming-Way!

Happy Valentine’s Day to all our readers!
Walking a Camino is an inner journey you may want to compliment with great books! I enjoy reading “The Sun Also Rises” from Hemingway. Not only it is a brilliantly written book, but it is also set in one of my favourite Camino routes. The first part of the French way, starting from St Jean Pied de Port in France to Pamplona, crossing the Pyrenees. Ernest Hemingway wrote the book in Pamplona and lived, fished and enjoyed the area very much. So why not trying this great walk and Follow the Heming-Way. If you plan to arrive for the second week of July, you will also enjoy the world-famous San Fermin seven-day Festival. We have all of the details on how to join the festivities here. Hemingway was fond of fish. One of his favourite dishes in Pamplona was Bacalao Ajoerrero. Try our Bacaloa de Pamplona recipe. We have several events planned in Ireland and the USA this month so check your agenda and join us!

Walking the Camino is a great experience and to make it even more enjoyable, we are launching the First ever SOS DOC CAMINO! column, written by our new partner Cappagh Orthopaedics Hospital. Each month you will get some precious health advice for walking the Camino and enjoy the Camino injury-free. This month learn about the health benefits of walking and I will give you some tips on preparing for the Camino. By the way, if you have any tips you want to share, send them to us or ask our Doctor Camino for any questions. Planning the Camino for our clients means a lot to us, as it means a lot to our clients. Responsible Camino – you will see what we do for the Camino Community and for Charities. This time, we need your help: name the Charity of your choice in your region and if we share their values, we will give them €100 on your behalf!

Enjoy the read and ¡Buen Camino!
