John Beirne will be walking the Way of St James to Santiago de Compostela in May 2018.
May 15th – From St James Bristol to Bristol Airport for flight to Porto.
May 16th – From Porto to Tui on the Portuguese/Spanish border.
May 17th – From Tui to Santiago (approximately 116 km).
Each day he will walk approximately 10 miles.
John says ” I aim to be in Santiago on 24th May – my 75th Birthday, God willing. I will remember in my prayers all at St James in Bristol and my own parish , St Joseph’s.
This will be my 5th Camino. Two years ago I set off from Porto but illness forced me to go home when I had reached the Spanish border. This year I hope to complete this Camino.
Please remember me in your Prayers.”
