    Camino safety reports APP?

    Hello All, I remember hearing about a mobile app through which you can report incidences on the Camino. Not sure if it's a Camino thing or a Spain thing in general. Anyone that can point me in the right direction?

    My family and I are considering renting for the month of August somewhere along the Frances while we finish our book about the Camino. No walking as husband has a bad injury, but we just want to be around the Camino vibe as we write. We'd like to be somewhere that a car is not necessary, might...

    Baby on the Camino - my takeaways

    Hello Pilgrims, We just returned from completing the Ingles with our six-month old baby boy. We actually started in Ireland, then flew to Spain to connect with the Ingles. This is called the 'Celtic Camino,' and we did about 170km total. He was no stranger to the Camino - last year while walking...

    Inglés with baby buggy

    Hi, We are walking the ingles with our baby this September. Wondering if anyone could shed some light on how suitable the surfaces are for a buggy. We have an all-terrain model with pump up bicycle style tires. We did the Norte last year and that definitely would’ve been tough with the buggy...

    Update: went to pilgrim office today. I told our attendant that I was pregnant and didn’t expect a Compostela for the baby, but asked for a distancia. He replied that he could add, in Latin, ‘boy or girl Ryle’ (Ryle is the surname) to my Compostela. He did without any further questioning...

    Warning! Flashers near Santander

    Update: since my original post, I’ve heard from several women. Flashers who sound like the same guys have been spotted from Islares to cobreces, a 94km spread. Two men in all cases. It must be the same guys. If you want to do something productive, report it to Spanish police on behalf of other...

    Warning! Flashers near Santander

    No worries everyone, i am personally protected by an Irish hobbit and an Austrian giant. Planning to report it once I get exact location. I saw in past threads there were two men near cobreces a few months back doing the same. My guess is it’s the same guys. I’m determined to do something about...
