    How Do You End Your Camino

    When I arrive in Santiago, the next day, I always leave for Fisterra and end up in Muxia and there if I have some days left I spend them relaxing in the calm of the village ready to return to Santiago for my flight, with a light heart at the thought of having accomplished my pilgrimage. :)

    Pole Tip Protectors - A Serious matter - There are tips and tips

    Hi Robo I bought this type here about 4 years ago from Decathlon. They don't seem to sell them anymore - perhaps because they last forever. I've just found them on Wish and ordered some more. Hope I've been of some help. Buen Camino Ernesto

    Poll Which Camino are you planning next?

    If I am still alive and if we are vaccinated, it will be by April 2022 or else April 2023. Start my walk John O Groat's to Rome via Canterbury Via Francigena should be around 3000+Kilometer. I had to cancel it in April 2020 when it was all paid for.:( Ultrea:)

    What will the 'new normal' be like?

    Felice, I wouldn't worry that much, because when the Camino reopens, there will be no longer the fear of today because God willing we will all ( or almost all ) be vaccinated. Ultreia:)

    OBSOLETE COVID THREAD Portugal’s covid status updated here
