Last September Palma and I took a class given by the American Pilgrims on the Camino (APOC) in order to be able to volunteer as hospitateros on the Camino de Santiago. Upon completion we applied to La Federación Española de Asociaciones del Amigos del Camino de Santiago to serve. This Friday we heard back from the Federación and were advised we would be posted in the parish alburgue in Grañón. Wow, so exciting. This is one of the more special and well loved alburgues on the Camino. We walked our Camino in 2010 stayed there and it was a wonderful experience.

So now our journey begins. We will be flying to Spain in mid March and make our way to Grañón for our two weeks of service. When we finish there I think we will go to Haro to visit some great Spanish Wine Bodegas and then head to Logroño to start our pilgrimage.
