Coming to you live from the “heart” of the Camino Frances!
Leigh Brennan, is the host of The Camino Cafe. The much-loved podcast features Pilgrims from around the world that have walked the Camino de Santiago Pilgrimage. Leigh started the podcast after walking her first Camino in 2019. Leigh recently completed her second Pilgrimage on the Camino Frances route in the Fall of 2021. For this walk, she walked from St. Jean Pied de Port, France to Rabanal Del Camino, a beautiful Spanish village located in the heart of the Camino Frances. Upon arrival, she began her official Artist in Residence sabbatical at The Stone Boat. The Stone Boat is a well-known and lovely guest house located directly on the Camino. While on retreat, she will be recording podcasts, working on various Camino-related projects, and happily greeting Pilgrims as they walk by daily.
Leigh has one daughter, Kiley, currently in architecture school and a labradoodle puppy named Cooper. The Camino Cafe podcast is a platform for Pilgrims to share stories about their Camino journeys. Leigh has interviewed numerous Pilgrims, albergue owners, Camino Authors, and Camino filmmakers. You can listen to episodes wherever you listen to podcasts and watch interviews on YouTube (links below). Prior to becoming a full-time Pilgrim, Leigh was a longtime yoga teacher owning her own studio in the United States. Leigh is excited to be living on the Camino and looks forward to meeting as many Pilgrims as possible while living in Rabanal.
