      ...I am on day eight of walking the Francés at the moment. It is quite busy. A lot of talk about beds (and the need to book ahead). I don't book. Today I tried really hard not to get a bed. I really tried. Got up late. Took my time to pack...

      Interesting. I walked winter 2014 and the weather from St J P de p was vile. Two pilgrims that first day had their ponchos completely shredded by Roncrsvalles. De Colores. Bogong

      I bought the cheap ponchos several times and paid various amounts for them. Few lasted more than two days. So I finally invested in a tough but light plastic one of a proper design that gives full protection. I’ve never looked back. I always...

      Most of the scary stuff I’d been reading on this site. Accommodation issues, blisters, bedbugs, distances, route issues, shoes, packweights, snoring and other albergue noises at night, medical facilities, went on and on. Left me fearful of a...

      If you have the opportunity to visit Spain during Semana Santa...take it! My wife and I were in Cadiz for Holy Thursday, and Jerez de la Frontera for Easter Sunday last year. If we can...a repeat visit during Holy Week...would be our goal. Buen...

      Told to me by a German pilgrim I met somewhere after Sarria in 2014. You could still see the terror in his eyes at the memory. He was my age, about 70. He had years earlier walked from Sarria in August, the Spanish holiday period. It was wall to...

      Bogong replied to the thread Asics running shoe durability.
      What I’m going to say might upset some prople and cause some disagreement. For 58 years or so I’ve been a jogger including daily runs of up to 15 miles and marathon training. I’ve tried virtually every brand of funner except now there seem to be...
