On 27th May 2013 Colin and Mary Boylan walked the 500 mile Camino de Santiago in order to raise funds for the NI Childrens Kidney Fund and Roddensvale Special School Larne in memory of their granddaughter Rachel Maxwell. The walking continued in 2014 with the Via di Francesco from Assisi to Rome, 2015 the Portuguese Camino from Lisbon to Santiago and Easter 2016 the King Ludwig Way in Bavaria, Germany.
2016 The Ignatian Way from Loyola to Manresa.
This time last year we were getting in to our stride during our Camino walk with Austin and Pauline. Next Saturday Mary and I are setting out on another walk only this time in Umbria, Italy. We will be attempting to walk the route of St. Francis from Assisi to Rome. This old traditional walk is about 180 miles long and passes through many historic and beautiful Roman hill towns and villages. I have promised some of our friends from the Camino that I would resurrect a blog for this so I will start writing next Saturday from Pisa. By the way I hope you are impressed by the fact I was able to include a photo. See you next week.
