How to plan, where to stay, how to pack, what not to miss, and how to have a Buen Camino from the #littleoldladywalking!
Buen Camino! is not a guidebook, there are no maps, no long-winded legends or history – just lots of fun little stories and helpful tips from a veteran American pilgrim to anyone planning their first Camino by themselves or just waiting to go back without the help of an agency or staying in albergues.

Our mission is to share our knowledge of the Camino de Santiago and help groups, solo travelers including single women traveling alone enjoy the Camino and Galicia as much as we do.
Running a small travel agency is not always easy, it means very long hours in the office everyday, some very stressful moments and spending our holidays trying out your own tours but it is all worth it when we receive such excellent feedback and are able to great our amazing clients when they reach Santiago de Compostela.
Receiving an award like this and reading your reviews on TripAdvisor and Facebook really gives us strenght to continue each day and reassurance that we are in the right field and leaving a positive footprint.

Experience the Camino de Santiago differently, walking each day with the great Tenebrae Choir in your ipod. The unique cappella choir will shed new light on your journey along the 4 stages of the French Way with their moving new album Path of Miracles.
The Camino de Santiago is a pilgrimage to the tomb of the Apostle Saint James, but for many pilgrims, the experience they had along the Way brought them something more than what they were expecting which motivated to give a new direction to their life. This is the case of Joby Talbot who spent three and a half years composing this “musical pilgrimage” or “choral odyssey” based on the most enduring route of Catholic pilgrimage – the great Pilgrimage to Santiago.
