    Anyone planning to walk the Camino Mozarabe from Malaga in October or November?

    We finished in Cordoba last year and had planned on continuing from Cordoba to Merida this year. We have flights booked for October but have no idea if we will be able to travel due to Covid restrictions. It's not looking likely at the moment as Spain is not on the green list for travel from...

    Hi David , if you go onto the website www.caminomozarabedemalaga.com there is a lot of info there. There are contact details there too if you want to ask them to send you accomodation details in English. We found them very helpful for both stages we have done. ( Malaga to Antequera Aug 2017 and...

    Another Pilgrimage

    There is a group with a website "champing.co.uk" that promote camping in historic churches throughout the uk. We came across one of them on the Saxon Shore Way this year . Although we didn't stay in it we thought it was a great idea . At the moment there is only one church in Wales on the list...

    Pilgrim masses in Santiago cathedral to be suspended from Monday 28 January 2019

    We have been lucky to see the botafumeiro swing at every one of the Pilgrim Masses we have attended since our first Camino in 2012. While it would be disappointing to not see it this year I would hope that the beautiful singing of the Cathedral Nun can still be heard in the other Churches where...

    Email from the Camino Portugues

    Hubby and I walked from Lisbon to Vale de Figuiero in Nov 2015. We enjoyed all 5 days and will return next wed 18th to continue from Vale de Figuiero to Porto. Now I'm worried having read the OP that we won't enjoy it as much having completed the Camino France's last October. Hopefully with the...

    camino mozarabe - malaga to santiago!

    Myself and my husband are going to walk the Camino Mozarabe but only from Malaga to Antequera , about 3 days 11 - 13th August , as we are meeting family there . All the advise seems to say not to walk in July / August but I'm hoping if we start and finish early we can avoid the intense heat. I...

    Two pilgrims lost and found in SJPP-Roncesvalles

    Having read about this poor unfortunate couples 4 day adventure I started to have 2nd thoughts about hubby and my abilities to navigate on our rapidly approaching 1st full Camino Frances ( we begin in St.J.P.deP. 20th Sept ) . "Are we mad ? Why are we doing this ? If it can happen to them it...

    Just About Done For The Off

    Just booked our flights yesterday to St. Jean arriving Sept 20th 2016. Hubby was 60 in November so decided to do what you advised and go do the Camino Frances sooner than later . I can plan a different camino for my 60th in 2019 !

    2016 September/October Peregrinos

    Hi DeadFred ! I have just yesterday booked flights to St. Jean for myself and my husband arriving Sept 20th 2016 . We are so excited can't believe that it's finally going to happen . He was 60 in November so it must have been the catalyst for him to organise the time off work. It used to be me...

    Foot problems-- considering stopping early

    I am just back from 5 days walking the Portuguese Camino with my husband from Lisbon to Vale de Figuiero ( just past Santarem ). I too suffered with blisters in 2 places on my left foot which I blame on the cobbles which abound on the streets in this area . I don't normally get blisters but...
