  • Hello Annie! I saw a post about information for walking El Camino Aragones. Can you please share with me what information you have. I am inspired by this path and would love to complete this one. However, I am having trouble finding much information with details Thank you so much!

    I have a blog to get you started from when I walked some years back. It's a lovely route and you really do not need a group. However, I could book private lodging for you if you do not want to stay in albergues. I have a group on Facebook called Pilgrims Helping Pilgrims. Join up there and we can chat about your options and plans.
    Hi Annie! I think this is how you send a PM but if not sorry haha. I saw on a thread from a couple years back that you had some information about the route from Barcelona to Monsterrat. If you still have that information would it be possible to send it my way? Leaving on Friday and trying to get my route sorted! Thanks so much!

    Hi there. I'm sorry but I'm in the middle of a move and that info isn't at my fingertips. You can catch a train from Barcelona to Montserrat every hour from the train station. It's very inexpensive. Just watch your belongings, as the pickpockets are rampant in Barcelona. Buen Camino! I hope you'll report back on the route... are you following it to Santiago?
    Hi Annie, thanks for all your posts and best wishes to you. Any thoughts on which non Camino Frances you liked. My wife and I are planning for late spring 2018, our 3rd and 2nd Camino respectively, thanks

    I'm in love with the Madrid route. It's easy to fly into Madrid, and walk straight out of Madrid, or take a quick train up a few stages. It's well supported, beautiful and not very busy. You end up walking into Sahagun, where you can either continue on to Santiago or nab a train to your destination. If you need info on the route feel free to PM me.
    Hi all! I am leaving on September 11 starting from Lourdes and then through the Col de Somport, the Aragones Camino... I am stressing about how much money I will need each day, and the best way to manage that. Any thoughts?
    Also, do I really need a cell phone?

    Hi there! Have you booked any lodging on the Lourdes route? You will need to and that will tell you how much you need each day on that route. If you need ideas of where to stay, PM me or email me at anniesantiago13@gmail.com (better) Manage cash by carrying 300 euros and taking it out when you find ATMs. I would carry a cell phone personally on this route - it does have some remote stages. I hope this helps.
    How long will you be at San Anton? Will be on my 4th Camino and will stay there this time for sure!! Should be there around June 21???

    I will be there from June 1-10. Buen Camino. :)
    Annie-- I want to walk Via de la Plata or Camino Sanabres on 2017. What are your plans for 2017?

    Have fun! RVs will never be my cup of tea, but they are certainly a way to travel around. All the best!!
    I'll miss your lovely posts! I've been chastened by Ivar for calling out an ass. Buen Camino in all your Ways. It's been a pleasure following along with you. I hope to find the courage you live :)

    You were? I haven't been reading. I'm on Camino. I'm going to go look! Don't leave. They've chastened me many times. Lol.
    NB Trail runners: Which model do you have? I'm starting on Sept 12 from SJPDP to Santiago, Fisterre, Muxie, & back to Santiago. I am considering the NB WT1210 (Leadville 100). Wondering if it'll be adequate for the terrain & if one pair would be do for the entire trip. It feels comfortable & looks durable. How's the traction when it is raining & wet out?

    I'm wearing 1540''s right now - I haven't bought a new pair this year. I think the 1210's are this year's model and they should be fine for the entire Camino! One pair will be enough. They're fine as far as traction goes. Buen Camino!
    I would be interested in the Marmot Pounder you have for sale. Please send me pictures. dlarkman@hotmail.com.

    I live in White Salmon close to Portland.
    Hi Annie-Didn't even know I could! Sounds good to me. Now....suggested maps, guidebooks etc? That route is pilgrim friendly as well? Oh... do I really need trekking poles?
    Hi Annie, I want to order Permethrin to pre-treat my sleeping bag and backpack, but I don't know how much to order, how much I'll need. No need to spend a fortune on more than I'll need. Do you have any idea how much is necessary? Thanks in advance. I always look for your input on things. :)

    Oh my God! Everyone here is so knowledgeable. Have I fallen from the Turnip Truck? What on Earth is Permethrin?

    Is there like an online store where one can buy much of these things?
    Hello from Naverette,

    A very nice woman just told me about an old man that approached her today and ended up grabbing er breasts and asked her to go to bed with him. She was shocked! I vaguely remember a post about him. Does this ring a bell with uou? I am using a tablet so my resources are limited. I would love to find the post so I could show it to her. Any help would be appreciated. Buen Camino
    Hi Annie! Getting excited for our camping Frances trip coming up soon! Was wondering if you have a list of albuergues that allow camping on their property? Thanks for your wisdom!
    Annie: I'm new to this blog. I notice you are very knowledgable about Caminos.
    I walked 2 stages on camino Frances in sept last year. I had to stop for health reasons and I plan to do Sarria to Santiago hopefully next year. Can you give me some pointers?
    Hi Annie, thank you! We will be in a tent and are not sure if we'll do Frances or Norte yet - you still think a sleeping bag is necessary? Are you referring to campspots that are the parks (expensive) or wild? Great tip to walk through the village!
    Hi Annie! I am embarking on a summer late June/July walk and intend to camp as much as possible. When you did your summer camping camino, which route did you take? I'm also very confused about what to bring for bedding and trying to get away with the lightest (and cheapest) option possible at that time. Fleece bag, silk liner, or light sleeping bag?? Thanks for your help!
    I read your blog on restroom issues. I am going on the Camino soon, and must admit that this issue has put a damper on my trip. I have reviewed my guide book and noticed that there are many albergues where there are no cafe's . I have many questions. 1.: Would the albergues that you passed by allow you to use the restroom facilities if you were not staying there? 2. ) Did you have to go in the woods?

    There are bars along the way where you can stop and use the toilet. Just buy something.

    I have the same question plus... can I find hot water along the way for my instant coffee? What I would love to take with me is a 'cafetera italiana' so I can make my Cuban coffee. OH MY GOD! How can I go 30 days with no Cuban coffee? I will lose my ability to speak Italian fluently.
    How many times have you been on the camino?..I will be coming from Zurich to Biarritz and looking for flights ...

    Dang, I just saw this post today. I wonder why? I have walked the Frances 5 times, and portions of the Portuguese, Via de la Plata, and Norte. I've also walked the Aragones twice and once from Lourdes to Pamplona.

    Annie...wow...I want to be like you when I grow up. 5 times, eh? O.K. Annie...tell me something. Am I being a sissy or what? I have scheduled myself to walk 22 to 28 kms. per day. Is this o.k? Am I normal?
