    Diario de Navarra.- In spanish

    WM~ thank you. "Pass" makes sense considering the mountains, si? I checked weather online and didn't see anything horrendous but you've reminded me now about the "fog." I've heard others mention visibility issues in that area but had forgotten all about it so thank you for that...

    Diario de Navarra.- In spanish

    William Marques, Thank you for the translation but I'm still a bit confused. What do you mean by "col"... is this a term for "route?" Is this part of the Camino the most dangerous because it's all downhill on the S. Pyrenees? Or is it just dangerous on this stage of the Camino? Did the Belgium...

    new albergue in Moratinos!

    oops- sorry for the repeated last entry! (still a tad technologically challenged!) I will have a European phone on lend from Italy which has the country code of 0039. What is the country code for Spain for me dialing from "Italy?" Do I only need to dial your country code and then the number...

    new albergue in Moratinos!

    Hello Rebeka, I plan to start from Roncevalles around June 25th. Plan to take Camino one day at a time (and even more slowly now-bronchitis!) so don't know when I'll arrive in Moratinos... but should I call ahead for reservations? Do you even take them? I would love to stay at The Peaceable...

    Contacting Daughter

    Dear Jneczypor, I'm sorry to reply to you as one who has not seen your daughter... I'm still in the States. However, I hear the desperation in your message and as a mother of a 24 yr. old daughter and 21 yr. old son, I feel your worry and anxiety... especially if International travel is new for...

    beginner questions

    Hi Firsttimer! It's always comforting to relate to other first timers!! I go next month and although I discovered this forum a couple of months ago, and have gained EXTENSIVE valuable knowledge, it's interesting to be aware of how my emotions swing from excited to anxious to nervous! Having...

    Crowded Camino in the Holy Year?

    Thanks Rebekah, Is it common for albergues to have camping available and is this also true for refugios and hostels? Also, would I be ok just in my sleeping bag or would you recommend a single tent? I really don't want to pack any extra weight yet don't want to wake up to a stray dog licking my...

    Simple life.

    "Bridget and Peter"]Yes, these are themes we revisit time and time again during our life, it's true, in all sorts of serendipitous ways. After all, change happens all the time, or should, surely, in a developing person. But yes, I think we are using the Camino as a support for change. I'm...

    Crowded Camino in the Holy Year?

    This may seem a silly question, but because of the expected crowds, I've already considered a 1 person tent as Rebekah mentioned (although I don't want the extra weight even if less than 2 lbs)... however, can I still pay the fee to an albuergue/refugio so that I may use all other facilities...

    Simple life.

    Ian-Great question! Pilgrims- great sharing of lessons learned and applied and even more great questions such as Pats... and I "wonder" with you Pat. Your question Ian, how are folks applying lessons learned? This has been heavy on my heart because I need balance in my life and how will I...

    Piligrimin, I once heard that "the writer intends while the reader interprets".... not sure how to interpret what you are saying... have a few ideas swirling in my mind... Grazie~ Denise

    Crowded Camino in the Holy Year?

    Hi Sil, Does this mean there was also no vacancy at hotels? Should I know consider a tent or perhaps a pad to go between my sleeping bag and the ground?? Or will I find refuge in a barn, restaurant floor, spare room of a family... I'm telling myself NOT to worry... Grazie~ Denise
