    Great albergue open in Arantzazu

    After a day of almost solo walking up and over the mountains, arrived in Aruntzazu, the end of the second stage of this way, to find that a brand new albergue has opened. It’s enormous and spotless, with a range of room sizes, a good kitchen etc. a bed costs just over 13 euros. And I think that...

    Piedmont - Aragones - Ignaciano

    Hi Janet, your comments and blog have me thinking about walking into Pamplona instead and taking public transport up to San Sebastián to walk the full St Ignaciano. That would achieve 2 things. Less time on the CF, and sort out the messy transfer around logrono. Someone had commented that after...

    Piedmont - Aragones - Ignaciano

    Hi Vacajoe, yes with only 3 weeks to go too, am starting to get excited but also a tad anxious - but that’s mainly because boots still need to be bought, since my current pair won’t cut it!! I only decided on this Camino last week and my route too is still being sorted. I’ll be relying heavily...

    Piedmont - Aragones - Ignaciano

    Starting to think about another Camino. Lourdes and st Ignacio have caught my attention over the past year, and so... Planning at this stage on starting in mid April (2019 - so soon!) in Narbonne, walking the Piedmont route to Lourdes and then Somport, down on the Aragone to Logrona, then turn...

    Albergues on the Madrid Camino

    Incidentally, I have also found the kml (route overlay) for the Madrid Camino in case anyone is using an offline map like Maps.me on their smartphone and wants to make sure they are on the right track (not sure how well waymarked it is)...

    Croatian Camino

    Hi Kiwi family, I'm an Aussie girl currently living in Split, Croatia. I walked the Peace Walk last year and followed it with the walk of St Francis from Assisi to Rome. I've since enjoyed 6 months living here in Croatia but am thinking about another walk in April. I was looking at returning to...

    My walking tour of Lisbon

    Yes, walking the Portuguese Camino from Lisbon does seem to popular at the moment, or is it just a case of seeing many VW Golfs on the road when you yourself have just bought one. Looking forward to arriving in Lisbon next Tuesday. That interesting fluttery mix of trepidation and anticipation is...

    Poll: Which backpacks are most popular on the Caminos?

    A very old - well, 15 years - Berghaus Bull Frog 30 plus litre pack. And hopefully it will make one last camino with me in a few weeks time.

    Is there a supported coastal walk when starting out of Lisbon?

    Thankyou all for your replies. The link that you found Laurie was indeed the one I vaguely recalled having read "somewhere" but there is just so much wonderful information available. To date I have only been skim reading but as of tomorrow I will start note taking into the margins of the John...

    Lisbon - Santiago

    Thanks Magwood! I plan to be staying in Lisbon a few days - til 2nd May - to recover from my flight over from Sydney, so that sounds like a good possibility. Only thing is that I'm not planning to travel with any electronic plug-in type gear, including mobile phone. But we can make this work i'm...

    Lisbon - Santiago

    Hi, I'm also aware of the fact that I know no Portugeuse and am doing a bit of a crash course in the language using a cd I bought. It uses the "ear worm" technique of learning. I think its great and with the repetitive phrases set to up tempo music it also serves to add a bit of a bounce to my...
