    Reservations for 2021

    amyshmn - advice above good. I too am solo walker. I book ahead for the whole route. Some people don't like to do this, however, it keeps me on track, I don't spend time on my phone or worrying about accommodations in the next town. Lots of factors on booking ahead - Holy Year, more people...

    Unfortunately, when I was having my Camino Certificates and Credentials framed, the shop lost all my completion certificates. The Pilgrim Office in Santiago is replacing the Camino Frances and Distance certificates, but I would really like to replace the half way certificate I received in...
