    Arrrgh. . . It's Too Red. Will It Be Like Carrying An Easter Egg?

    But it will be easier to spot if someone tries to run off with it😆

    New to Camino

    I will celebrate my 80th birthday next year by walking a shorter Camino- Tricastella to Santiago, with a new pair of knees.

    Women: Advice on trail runners/shoes

    Bag transfers

    Jacotrans and Camino Facile (not sure about spelling) transport bags between most accommodations including hotels etc willing to accept them. Not exactly cheap but not outrageously expensive.

    Let's Start A Pilgrim's Albergue in Santiago de Compostela!
