Trevor Huxmhan walked the French Way and the Finisterre Way
A few weeks ago we decided to create a directory with Blogs related to the Camino de Santiago, mainly written by international English speaking pilgrims. We thought it would be very interesting to know how this experience was seen by those who have to travel thousands of kilometres to live it. The investigation turned out to be so enriching that we decided to dig a bit more into some of these blogs.
That is how we got in contact with Trevor Huxmhan, the author of A Texan in Spain. As you may have understood by the title of his blog, Trevor is originally from Dallas (Texas, US), but he knows Spain in depth, because he travelled in this country for three years as an English teacher (he is back in the US now, and he lives in Phoenix, Arizona). We can find loads of useful information on his blog, not only about the Camino de Santiago, but also about many other hidden corners of Spain.
Trevor, when did you walk the Camino de Santiago, and which route did you choose?
In June 2013 I hiked the last five days of the camino francés (starting in Sarria) and also continued on to hike the three days of the camino de Fisterra. When I lived in Santiago de Compostela, I also did some day-hikes on the camino de Fisterra from Santiago to Negreira and the last stage of the camino portugués from Padrón to Santiago.
What where your motivations to walk the Camino and why did you decided to write a blog about it?
And how did you prepare for the Camino?
Could you tell us an anecdote about your Camino?
Finally, best & Worst part of your Camino de Santiago?
We hope you found Trevor’s story as interesting as we did. From now on we will start publishing all these kind of testimonies with the hashtag #Caminotales, that you can follow on our social media: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram.
