El Camino de Santiago
From the Med to the Atlantic
"LEAVING: September 2018. Catalonia"
With a hammock and a guitar I will be traversing my own route across the north of Spain without any intent to finish it on time. The journey is about giving and meeting peoples who will welcome my music in their towns. Potential volunteers should bear in mind that much of the journey will be foraging as at this time in the year as there is an abundance of food growing on the roadsides.
A blog of my experience and music will be made, and as with other journeys, a publication at the end of it.
The return journey is optional since I have family living in the north.
THE JOURNEY HAS BEEN COMPLETED SUCCESSFULLY.
in 2021 I intend to make the Portugal route starting either in the south and heading north or from Gallicia to continue along the coast of Spain. Same conditions as above, but this year should be more special because San Tiago's birthday falls on a Sunday.

Opportunities to volunteer
Come to Catalonia
"Next available date OCTOBER to JULY 2020"
Volunteer opportunities for one or two members to help work the land (3 to 4 hours per day) in a beautiful part of Spain. Applicants are invited to fitness and sight-seeing. Access to the sea and neighbouring towns, and a shared caravan. Self-catering but many benefits include trips to regional mountainous and valley beauty spots, as well as direct rail services to Valencia, Tarragona and Barcelona. Cycling is also a must in this country. The project is the beginnings of an eco-settlement illustrated in my books. The first phase building the large cistern has already progressed. Other learning experiences include dry-stone walling, eco-build, bio-char making, walking and mountaineering, olive and carob cultivation, and fruit and vegetable production. The main period of farming is between September and May. Only companions are sort and must be of a spiritual disposition. Additional paid camping and caravan use is available too.

Superb short-sleeve high-quality sports t-shirts showing the bike route of both the hare and the tortoise from Catalonia all the way to the north of Poland. Notice the original image only shows one route. Due to unforeseen circumstances I had to divert through the Alps, hence I have manually added with a marker pen the additional cities I went through. My sponsor is shown on the front and the back is the modified image I use for all my journeys.
