      AnneMarie1 reacted to LTfit's post in the thread What do you do on a rest day with Like Like.
      I've never actually taken a rest day. The closest thing was years after walking various routes I walked the Francés again and did a short stage from Mansilla de las Mulas to León so that I had time to visit the Cathedral. I enjoy city visits...

      AnneMarie1 reacted to Keyser's post in the thread Post Camino Re-entry with Love - Red heart Love - Red heart.
      This is an appropriate post to highlight the FCJ project called Camino Companions which is based in Room 6 on the 1st Floor Jo of the Pilgrims Office in SDC (11:30 to 5:00 Mon to Sat). They offer various activities throughout the day aimed at...

      Good question - I have been wearing my Keen Newport sandals on Caminos for years now - best footwear!! as indoor sandals can be a little bulky and I loathe flipflops I go barefoot but if cool put socks on when indoors. but that is me - though...

      I’d take a lightweight pair of recovery slides like Oofos. Your feet will thank you after a long day of walking and it can help prevent plantar fasciitis. Socks in an Albergue could be tricky - you need to go outside to hang out washing etc.

      You will be asked to remove your walking footwear when you go into the albergue. You can bring a pair of flip flops or lightweight slides to wear inside. Or, if you are comfortable with it you can wear just socks in the albergue. I ended up...

      I'm a long time sufferer of PF (~15 years). I've tried about a million different OTC inserts, socks, and other products "guaranteed" to cure PF. None of them provided much relief. It wasn't until I found a good podiatrist that knows how to...

      I am on Primativo- saw a doctor at clinic in Oviedo the other day- she was excellent and it was like $70. Euro. I went to the hospital first and that was a nightmare as my health card is on my phone and they looked at me like I was crazy. Finally...

      It is always disappointing and a worry when we find ourselves injured while walking a Camino. I am sorry to hear this has happened to you. A month ago on my Camino I injured my knee on a steep downhill, luckily only one day before finishing in...

      AnneMarie1 reacted to nancymcintosh's post in the thread Injury - in Oviedo now with Sad Sad.
      Thank you for your advice. My husband was thinking along that same line. I think we will make our way to the hospital. I hadn’t thought to advise my health care provider back home. Will get that done today. 6/12/24 The hardest part is not being...

      No, it is not. As a single person you don't have to feel guilty when you wish to have the same level of privacy as a couple. First of all, albergues offering beds in private rooms in addition to beds in dormitories are usually "albergues...
