      I have seen people come close to a physical altercation because a selfish pilgrim with a headlamp on was moving around an albergue in the dark and carelessly shining the headlamp into the eyes of sleeping people. Please think outside of your own...

      Those of you who have never seen a bunkbed without a railing - lucky you! I have slept several times in top bunks with no railing, quite terrifying. I am 72 (I'm slow, so that's why I never get a bottom bunk) and usually get up once in the night...

      Backpacks on beds are definitely a no-no due to bedbugs!

      +1 Headlamps and bike lights are designed to light up meters ahead when outdoors and to be seen by traffic. They should not be used where people are sleeping regardless of brightness setting or colour (red/white)

      Which doesn't make it any less scary. In fact, one's mind is generally far scarier than reality. And there's no escaping it. @KariannNor , on my last camino I once asked younger people to swap to top bunks for the benefit of two older pilgrims...

      It might be uncommon but it happens. And falling from that height can have serious consequences.

      While it seems scary, it’s the same as sleeping in the bottom bunk space wise. So ask yourself, how often do you fall out of bed usually?!?! My guess is never, so the fact that you are elevated five feet up does not increase that risk. It’s...

      eils reacted to SabsP's post in the thread Pilgrimage or vacation? with Like Like.
      Both. Regular holidays for me and a pilgrimage. Then again I do not give a toss how others perceive my Caminos. The whole discussion about " tourist / true pilgrim " is so boring. I wrote it already here on other threads. I met many so called...

      eils reacted to Bristle Boy's post in the thread News from the Camino with Thank you Thank you.
      I gave you a like because you are spot on...well done. Perfectly worded and accurately observed. Edit: on second reading and reflection I upgraded my reaction.
