    If you have walked the Camino de Madrid

    Planning a “25 km or less” Camino on the Invierno

    Watching with interest! I'll be using this route into Santiago after completing the Levante. Hopefully 2022, but need to get the VDLP done first - after 3 aborted attempts (due to illness, family death and Covid). What could go wrong? 🤪

    The British monk at Sobrado

    Lawrence helped me in 2018 - as I arrived into town he took my backpack, so that I could watch England play a World Cup Football game on TV at the local bar. Post match I got to the Monastery and my pack had already been allocated a bed. Divine intervention I guess!

    Camino Primitivo — Question about Borres

    I arrived early at the Albergue in Borres during July 2019 and picked up the key from the local bar. It's very basic with 19 bunks on the lower floor {upper floor was locked). Recall it had a microwave and 1 x shower - but was completo by 4pm. The bar was excellent (10 minutes away) with a...
