    I've started watching a series of vlogs from someone walking from Lisbon to Santiago in 2020. He was warned that there were only three albergues open at the time between Lisbon and Porto. So far, we have only got as far as Santarem in the...

    Dromengro reacted to henrythedog's post in the thread The FORUM...means what to you? with Haha Haha.
    It’s somewhere to be whilst we can’t be ‘there’. The nature of the forum has changed with the diminished volume of posts - there is more of a sense of community; but I do look forward to the resurgence of the ‘is a red rucksack better than a...

    I've read many responses as to what's in your pack...when you start out. My question is "What did you find in your pack, that was unexpected, when you got home?" In my case, it was a piece of cheese and a dirty sock. Not sure which smelled worse.

    erm, so really is the Way of Saint James. The journey is not its purpose. It's a means to an end, and completion is a huge part of that.

    Dromengro replied to the thread West Highland Way.
    Probably lots has changed since I walked it in 1980, the biggest change probably is that you can have your bag carried for you. I carried a heavy canvas tent with wooden poles, a wool army blanket and a frying pan to cook over a wood fire and...

    I’m fortunate enough to live close to the start of the WHW and will hopefully be walking it and the Great Glen Way in May as I can’t get to SJPdP just yet, there are many great walks to enjoy in Scotland until it’s safe to travel again. Buen...
