    Just got back

    Congratulations on your achievement. I too felt the same emotions on my Camino. The feeling you get when you arrive in Santiago (or Finisterre, in my case) is so hard to describe. Thanks again for sharing your Camino experiences. Buen Camino!

    Gluten Free on Camino

    Me too. I've never had a problem buying yogurt the night before. Everyday I would walk until mid-afternoon and then go to the local market to pick up some fruits and essentials for the next day. In fact, I would always carry some nuts and energy bars in case I got hungry. Buen Camino!

    Hi -Brielle, At Barcelona Airport, money dispensed from ATM's is in the form of Euros. Also, as previously noted above, many small villages do not have ATM's so make sure you have some Euros "stashed away" in case of emergencies. Hope this helps. Buen Camino.

    Hi Everyone, I found this picture on the Internet this morning while waiting for the train to arrive. Does anyone know where this picture is from? If I had a couple (or several) months free, I wouldn't mind trying this Camino walk. But I was wondering if it's even possible? Has anyone...

    What items are you glad/wish you had brought?

    Two things come to mind: (1) Q-tips; and (2) Soft-picks for flossing in-between my teeth after a meal. :D

    If you had a couple of rest days, where would you take them?

    Burgos is a great place to visit. My friend's fiancée is from there. There's so many great places on the Camino. It's hard to choose where to take the rest days!!! But I guess that's what makes the Camino so special, and why it's called "The Way." :)

    If you had a couple of rest days, where would you take them?

    Hi Everyone, I was just wondering. If you had a couple of rest days, where would you stop and take them on the Camino? On my last Camino, we walked everyday without taking a rest day. But this time, we've got a few extra days before we have to return to the States. Where are some great...
