    On getting a compostela

    Congratulations! Really enjoying your blog!! We increasing live in an era of compliance with advantages and disadvantages. The 2 stamp rule for last 100 k was around when I did my first Camino in 2013. Having an official Credential, as such, is news to me, though I know the Cathedral does...

    Samos or Sarria to Santiago

    There is also a private Albergue in the town. Everything is in walking distance.

    Do you think trip insurance is necessary?

    Very important advice here. Check the number of days you are covered for in one trip. Usually 30. This is a condition of most "annual" travel insurance policies.

    Need to abandon walk!

    I'd go to Burgos and on by direct bus to Madrid Airport (frequent daily service). Bilbao Airport may not have a lot of daily flight options but Madrid should. Burgos is also worth a night!

    sleeping bags??

    Bring a lightweight sleeping bag each. All albergues have pillows. I bring a pillow case or wrap in a sarong. Enjoy

    Bus out of Leon to avoid city walking

    Advice @falcon269 above is spot on. Have some 1 / 2€ coins for fare. Get out at Church in Virgen del Camino. Lovely point to start. Walk via Mazarife...

    I need recommendation for a place in LUGO

    Stayed in Hostel Cross for 2 nights recently €15 per night. Spacious dorms, good privacy, no curfew, right in middle of tapas bar area. 1 night is probably enough to see Lugo.

    Trip insurance

    Make sure you insurance covers you for your full length of time away. Some policies limit you to 30 days on any one trip. Buen Camino!
