      I have been reading 2 different reports (on FB and instagram) about (an) agressive dog(s) just after Oseira. I'll post them here: In the group of @geraldkelly on FB (4 days ago): Hello lovely Via de la Plata group! I had a very unpleasant...

      You are wise to be taking into account transport time/days. Like J Wilhaus, I would suggest a stretch where the start and end points are easy to travel to/from, and the Francés in general is always a good first-time route recommendation. I was...

      Debora reacted to Kathar1na's post in the thread A street in Burgos with Like Like.
      And just in case that the next question is: What was the street in Burgos called before it was called calle Bernabé Perez Ortiz? The answer is easy. It had no name. It was baptised Bernabé Perez Ortiz in 1954 and kept this name until 2017 or...

      Debora reacted to lavender girl's post in the thread Single room auberge accommodation with Buen Camino! Buen Camino!.
      I am 82 years old. I have walked all but 250k of the Camino Frances alone, carrying my pack and staying in communal aubergues in 2017 and 18 and loving it! I am now on a mission to walk the final 250k but my health has taken a kick in the pants...

      Only on the Meseta did we encounter any problems. Flies, and they were just relentless. I think they were attracted by our sweat. We WILL taking nets next time around. We also encounter a massive swarm of bees. We had to walk through them for 50...

      I encountered black flies around Cruz de Fero my first Camino. Drove me crazy! I have a head net like the one above now. No mosquitoes, but some reports of ticks on least traveled Caminos.

      I've only ever been troubled with flies, and then only on occasion. One might do the whole walk and not encounter them, but when they are around - its a real beetch. Next time I will be taking my 40 gram net that even covers my ball cap...

      Nor have I. One year there were lots of flies on the way to Foncebadon (in the woods) but that was just the once and they don’t bite. Never was bothered by mosquitos along the canal out of Boadilla either.

      Hi Misspenn, I’ve walked in Spain 5 times in May/June (Frances, Norte and Madrid) and have never been bothered by any of the varmints you’ve mentioned. I left my bug spray at home after the first time. I have heard folks complain about flies or...
