    For rocky surfaces... the Timp has a rock-plate and you can remove it when you reach softer terrain. Ideal flexibility for some days... I find the toe box not as roomy as my LPs so those are the ones for my coming walk. The LPs are also lighter...

    You should also look at flying into Paris. I was able to book the train from Paris to St Jean on one ticket with a change at Bayonne. For your flight home you don't have to return from the same airport. Look into "multi city" or "open jaw"...

    Thank goodness you are saving the Sanabres rather than skipping it! It’s a gem. Me gusta comer gets my vote too when you make it. And the very nice albergue is directly across the street. Win win.

    Hi! I want to be open ended on my Camino, so I'd like to have a one way ticket and buy my return when I am ready. But I see that I can't do that because Spain needs to know that I am leaving at the end of my trip. Has anyone gone to the Camino...
