‘Egeria House’ in Santiago de Compostela is the private home of S.Yates, a Camino Fossil aka veteran pilgrim, which is open to pilgrims, volunteers that are traveling through and friends in general – time and space permitting. It is a place where people can find a helping hand, a listening ear and a cup of coffee/tea plus the odd cookie/biscuit.

S.Yates walked the pilgrim path to Santiago de Compostela for the first time in winter 1999/2000 and has been addicted, since that very first day walking out of Roncesvalles, to all things Camino but especially to the hospitality on the Way of St. James. From 2000-2004 she served as a hospitalera voluntaria with a Spanish volunteer organisation in over 20 albergues along the Camino Frances and the Camino to Finisterra. In August 2004 she moved to England and in 2008 from there to the Czech Republic and continued to explore pilgrim paths all over Europe and to write about them. She is getting slowly used to the idea of calling herself a (travel) writer, see her Amazon Author Page >here for US< and >here for UK<.

Since the 25th May 2017 she lives in Santiago de Compostela with the aim of making herself useful, once again, to other pilgrims. She sees herself as a ‘stationary pilgrim’ and doesn’t exclude the possibility of escaping the big city occasionally for one of the pilgrim roads less traveled.
