    Forum Book Club - 2 - To the Field of Stars (Kevin Codd)

    I have just purchased the book and will be sitting down to start reading it this evening. It has been a long time since I have read any persona accounts of the pilgrimage to Santiago, and I do mean a long time. the handful of books of this type I have were published between 1987 and 1994, before...

    Special unit dedicated to security on the Camino de Santiago in Navarre

    Hello all, This news item appeared this morning in the newspaper here. Sharing it here because it's a general announcement and I think most folks will see it here, but if it should go in the "Camino Crime Watch" section, I'll be happy to move it. The Provincial Police activate the special...

    Sarria scams

    It’s not always the same two, no. It is a family, so the faces change. The men are never out there running the scam, just the women. The men are sometimes close by, with a vehicle to drive them on to the next spot if things get too complicated there.

    Sarria scams

    As others have noted, they have been at it for years. They usually work the 4 km stretch outside of Sarria before Barbadelo but, as others have pointed out, you can find them at other points along the way and in Santiago. I have seen them on the bridge leading to Portomarín and a couple of...

    BBC Program "Celebs" on the Camino

    Nice to meet you, too! As I have basically been “outed” by the programme, I asked Ivar to go ahead and change my name, and I put up my photo. I’m Curtis, obviously. Nice to meet you all.

    Good afternoon Ivar, I'm contacting you with a request to change my username on the Forum...

    Good afternoon Ivar, I'm contacting you with a request to change my username on the Forum, please. I like the one I have, but I figure that as I am "more of a "public figure" now given my role at Eunate and as a guide on the Camino, I should use my real name so that people can find me a little...

    BBC Program "Celebs" on the Camino

    Thank you for your kind words. I did not misunderstand your earlier post at all. I don't want to encourage folks to do anything illegal, and I don't want to use their services illegally myself. I hope I can figure out how to watch the rest of the series legally by Friday. As for being a local...

    BBC Program "Celebs" on the Camino

    There are a few reasons. When I started helping look after the church, the ladies responsible for cleaning the interior of the church made it very clear that anyone wanting to enter the church had to have their shoes on. The reason they gave me is that in the past, the floor of the church...

    BBC Program "Celebs" on the Camino

    I was too. The cinematography of the whole episode was really well executed, and I was delighted with the drone shots of the church. They really did do a marvellous job. Full transparency time for you and anyone else on here who watched it: that was me who opened the gate and received the...

    BBC Program "Celebs" on the Camino

    Oooops! Thanks for that correction. No, I didn't read the FAQ, I just logged onto the web page with my iPad, clicked BBC 2, caught the tail-end of Gardener's World and watched the program. I didn't mean to do anything naughty; I am not English and I live in Spain, so I always forget the whole TV...

    Reports of a flasher near Eunate

    I've just received confirmation that he was subsequently spotted on the path near Obanos as well. Tomorrow I will know whether or not the Guardia Civil were able to identify or find him.

    Reports of a flasher near Eunate

    Just a heads up everyone, especially for female pilgrims: If you are planning to visit Eunate in the next few days, be alert on the road that descends from Muruzábal to Eunate. An American woman who had made the detour this morning reported the presence of a flasher on the road. I have...
