If you’re reading this, Peregrino, you are one of the first! I’m Kelli, and Jeff and I are so glad you’re here. We invite you to take this journey with us as we set up a food truck on the Camino de Santiago – Francés. And eventually the Happy Camper Albergue Campground and Cabins.
In 2018, we ditched the rat race in los Estados Unidos, and we packed up and moved to Spain. Landing in Valencia, we quickly heard the siren song of the Camino calling us to Galicia. Then la pandemia hit Spain hard, and our dreams of living up North were put on hold. But, never say never.
In early 2021, we bought our farm on the Camino and now, we’re ready to set up shop and welcome Pilgrims from all over the world. Are we nervous? You bet! Someone once said if you are afraid of a new adventure you should definitely do it. It’s pretty much my life’s motto. That’s how I ended up walking the Camino, for goodness sake. So a little fear is sometimes a good thing.
I’ll keep this blog updated as we move along with getting things set up. I’m sure you can tell we are very excited about the possibilities. But most of all, we’re excited about meeting all of you as you embark of the adventure of a lifetime.
Thank you for making us a part of your Camino!!
~Kelli y Jeff

What time do you open in the morning? Will be coming through on Monday May 30 and want to support your food truck
You’re so kind, Dianne. We are not open yet for the season. Our food truck construction was a bit delayed. We pick it up in Barcelona next weekend. We will, hopefully, be open by the end of June. Enjoy your Camino and we will see you next time. Buen Camino!
I am in San Xulian today. Heard about you on My Camino by Dan Mullin
We love San Xulian. The chapel there is amazing. We have been delayed with opening due to supply chain issues and the trucker’s strike in Spain. But we are in the home stretch
Have a great 2023 and hopefully we will see you in September 🤞
Gracias! 🙏We will be here! Buen Camino.
