      I trained a lot for my hike (Le Puy to Sanitago) and got corns. Mine were on my second smallest toes on the inside facing the pinky toes. (My pinky toes are slightly tilted inward, causing rubbing.) My main solution was corn pads. Sounds like...

      BillW replied to the thread Le Puy route.
      Great advice above. Here are a few of other thoughts... Lots of things are closed on Mondays, especially in the smaller villages, so plan to carry food/supplies especially on Sunday and Monday. The Cele Valley Variant is considered by some to...

      BillW replied to the thread Heat waves...walking in August..
      I walked Le Puy starting August 2022, which had several very hot days. As people have said, starting early helps a lot. Usually, on hot days, I tried to be done walking by 1:00PM or so. Generally, the heat didn't worry/bother me too much, but...

      Looks like the Tour de France will not directly stop in any Spanish Camino towns this year, although it may cross over with some of the GR routes for the French routes. La Vuelta (Spain's tour), on the other hand, does cross over in some...

      BillW replied to the thread Via Peuceta Italy.
      Haven't done the trail, but have visited Matera. Absolutely loved it. Our plan was to make it a base for a few days while we explored the area, but we were enjoying ourselves so much, that we just stayed in town and explored. It's nothing like...
