    rude spanish bar from camino

    I guess there is a rotten apple or two in every barrel, but when I walked the Frances in 2008 most of my bar experiences were very favorable. I did notice in several locations that preference was given to the local trade and pilgrims needed to wait until they were served. I don't interpret this...

    Do we have to stop at a border crossing to show passport?

    The day that we crossed the Pyrenees from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port the weather was very poor with freezing rain at the top so we took the van ride with the backpacks that other braver pilgrims didn't want to carry. At the point where we crossed over into Spain the van was stopped by the Guardia...

    Backpack weight... too little or too much??

    Certainly looks reasonable to me. As a general rule of thumb 10% of your body weight should be your ideal pack weight including water and food items.But as light as you can make it is the best way. Make sure you buy some honey at Buckfast Abbey. :P

    Can I go backwards?

    I shared a room with a Dutch man who was walking the Francais backwards fortunately he was the happy go lucky type of person that nothing seems to bother. I think you should be aware that you will face a hassle daily if you plan to stay in Municipal albergues. We were in a private albergue and...
