    Diversity among walkers

    I think it's always valuable when we can discuss complex issues in respectful ways. When it comes to race, the language can be fraught, and sometimes I think people avoid important conversations/topics because they are afraid of saying the wrong thing. Language is the first step, and I think...

    Diversity among walkers

    I completely agree with Natefaith's posting. As an Asian-American woman, I detest the term "people of color" as it defaults the state of personhood to being white, and everyone else to an offshoot of a white humanity. I feel similarly about the term BIPOC which has become popular in the US and...

    Safety for women on the Camino

    This original post seemed to have good intentions of encouraging women to walk, but the statements are deeply offensive/hurtful. I hope the OP will take time to understand why. We can all learn from each other on this forum and share with good will, as we will on the Camino. A woman being...

    Nordic walking vs. Trekking Poles

    I so greatly appreciate everyone's thoughtful responses. I will skip the Nordic poles (thanks DougF) and definitely try poles out beforehand and learn to use them correctly. I want to take as much stress off my knees and hips as possible. Regular trekking poles will be easy to find and try out...

    Nordic walking vs. Trekking Poles

    Hi Everyone, I have been planning to walk the Camino Frances this August, although at the moment I am waiting to see how things shake out with the virus. I have never used poles before but definitely want to use them on the Camino. I had been planning on buying trekking poles until I read a...
