    How things change! Never needed a socket for a phone in the early years as I never used one! As I was moving on a daily basis , the pleasant companions were likewise something I took as I found. I think something changed when the REFUGIO...

    Interesting. Historically pilgrimage has never been for the poor. In medieval times how would one even afford the boat fare? As for 'vagrants' appearing amongst the mix of pilgrims each year - well this should be expected ... in my country street...

    The Camino is for everyone who can do it and for whatever reason they are wanting to do it. I wonder whether the OP's question is really about intention and its role in "true pilgrimage", an expression I dislike. Who are the "true pilgrims" and...

    Nothing at all wrong with that. I am hoping to walk solo later this year, a plan postponed from 2020. I like to please myself where to stop,eat,spend time and set my own walking pace. It doesn’t matter what other people think, do what you want to...

    I definitely fall into @peregrina2000 ’s camp. A lot depends on my mood any given day (or mile). I too have had friends ask about coming with me. For the few who appeared serious I have made it clear that I wouldn’t want to walk with them or...
