Halfway Point of 2,000 mile Camino

Walking today on The Camino Chemin de Le Puy on my 9th day out of Le Puy en Velay it suddenly dawned on me that I’ve walked 1000 miles. Half way through my 2000 mile pilgrimage. It started with a 740K 35 day walk on the Irish part of the European long distance Trail E8. Leaving Dublin on April 27 and walking to the tip of Dursey Island:

and then finishing the Beara Way ending Leg 1 of my Camino in Killarney.

I then did various day hikes while touring Ireland for 5 weeks with my wife, Denise. Below I am at St. James church in Dublin just before heading to Le Puy, France and my July 28 departure from Le Puy.

Hit the 1,000 mile (1609 kilometers) mark the day I stayed in Rieutort at L’ Ange Guardian where we slept in a Mongolian yurt and had a vegetarian dinner for a nice change of pace.


The early morning walk from Reiutort:

So tonight finds me in Livinhac Le-Haut. Just 1040 miles (1674 kilometers) to St. Jean Pied-de-Port, Santiago, Finisterre, and Porto, Portugal.

Bon Chemin and Buen Camino.
