Casa Susi Roofing Project Update

In 2020, we launched our app Camino for Good and began wonderful relationships with albergues across Spain and Portugal. One of those relationships is with Susi and Fermin of Casa Susi in Spain along the Camino Frances route.

During a fund raising campaign organised by virtual pilgrim Peter Abildgaard

to replace the roof of the hostel, the support of their former hostel occupants was testimony to how much of an impact these two special people had on the experience of the Camino. Camino for Good and our virtual pilgrims were proud to be able to support them in this effort.

So after a very long two years the works begin to remove and replace the roof of Casa Susi.
Fermín has been working incredibly hard in very poor conditions & numerous hurdles. He has been doing as much internal works as possible before the builders arrive next week. Scaffolding has began to surround the property & numerous deliveries of construction materials.
Casa Susi will be closed to begin the camino season on the 1st April. With hard work & ‘hope’ they will be open to receive pilgrims as soon as the work is complete.
Please contact Susi and Fermin for updates if you’d like a reservation.
Keep them in your thoughts over the comings weeks & updates to follow

Spring is coming (Autumn down under) – the seasons of change and a time for renewal. This is an important time to focus inward on hope and healing and we hope you will join us on the 2nd Annual March to Santiago.

Meet Aussie Virtual Pilgrim Janine Sawer

“I wake at 4.30am and drive to work so that I can walk for 2 hours before arriving back in the office to shower and start work around 7.45am, I usually walk 10-11km in that time, just locally around the streets and there is a big park that I walk around as well. What I enjoy most about this is that my work is in a completely different area to where I live but thanks to walking I am very familiar with many of the locals.”
