    Camino de la Vera Cruz

    I am wondering if anyone has any information re this route. My friend has read of a route from Puenta la Reina de Navarra to Caravaca. She would like to cycle it. Is there a guide? Don't suppose there are many, if any, Albergues. Gracias.

    The Hospitaleros section

    I too, have signed up to this forum hoping to read some 'experiences' from other hospitalaros. I am about to start serving at Guacelmo on 15th August (for first time) and am hoping I will be able to manage. I am not afraid of hard work or mucking in but am a bit slow due to being somewhat...

    Health Food Stores

    Hi everyone, I seem to remember a Health Food Store in Jaca, near the Cathedral on the square. Don't know if it is still there but I would hazard a guess it is. I too am interested for things like nuts and dried fruit - a light, nurishing snack type food for El Camino. I always miss my...

    Age & Fitness

    And PEI-les, That 82 year old! GREAT - never say CAN'T. You remind me of myself starting University at age 58. Thought I'd only last a week, then got to Christmas, then passed 1st-year exams and finally aged 60 I graduated with a double first class honours in Spanish and Irish Studies...

    Spring landscape in EL CAMINO

    Almond Trees in Aragón Hola, Can anybody tell me the stage of the almond blossom in Alto Aragón? I am told the ancient stepping stones (three tier) near Castiello de Jaca have been washed away. What a loss. Wonder how old they were? Gracias, Eleanor
