    Newbie to travel in Europe

    Just a reminder, if you're over 60 you can buy a senior rail card, valid 1 yr and costs 6€ it gives excellent discounts. Purchase it over the counter before you buy your train ticket.

    Pamplona to Santiago tomorrow by train.

    Last May we took the train from Santiago De Compostela via Irun all the way to Hendaye. A very full train , 2 very ordinary , basic carriages at each end of a small buffet car. 3 toilets but one was out of service.

    IKEA Ponchos

    I mentioned the Lidl poncho only because I happened to see ponchos on sale when I was out shopping. It wasn't a recommendation for a MUST BUY. I have a very good poncho which keeps me dry and does the job beautifully. I bought it at a brocante in France and I think it might be made by...

    Finished CP May 16! Home now for Two Weeks

    Another early May 2018 walker here. Our group experienced mild weather, a few very wet days (chilly) and some days too hot. So really we experienced a bit of everything apart from bitter winter weather. Clothing LAYERS are the answer. A good waterproof poncho or jacket - vital.

    Easiest walk

    There are a couple of quite steep, rocky stretches on the Tui to Santiago Camino but you could arrange for your wife's rucksack to be transported then those stretches will be more manageable.

    Equipment guidance

    No we took ours with us. There is a sports shop in Bayonne but I don't know whether they stock walking poles.

    Equipment guidance

    I recommend walking poles that are adjustable.

    Equipment guidance

    Last year in September on the Baztan it was mostly warm and sunny but sometimes rainy. We had Summer gear and ponchos or light rain jackets. As always, layers are best. Monastery and albergues had blankets.

    Port coastal in short dectiond

    No, not if I understand your question correctly . The 100 km must be the 100km walked immediately before Santiago so you'd probably need to start at Valenca or Tui.

    Out walking today in Surrey after a few kms we arrived at a village that we knew had a good shop for walking gear. I remembered they sold Meindl shoes so in we went. Amazingly the first pair of shoes I tried were almost identical to the old ones I was using , the fit was perfect, reader, I...
