      There is no Albergue de Peregrinos de San Sebastián - only private hostels, and it doesn't appear that any of them have credentials available. The tourist office may have them. According to the Donostia/San Sebastián tourism site: Credentials...

      Chiming in again as a farmer. If one sees a lot of fruit on the ground around a tree, one might assume the harvest is over or the farmer does not care about these trees. In reality, this drop is most likely due to excessive heat or wind or poor...

      What we have here are numerous opinions and things that people have been told by others, but no primary sources that tell us what the rules really are. I too “have been told” that fruits from branches overhanging the public right of way are free...

      grayland reacted to Kathar1na's post in the thread 20 meters walked - but which route? with Like Like.
      Hi @Shazenalan! Without checking maps: I think that a Way of Saint James and a Way from Canterbury to Rome cross path in Saint-Quentin in the northern parts of France. When I stayed in Saint-Quentin on the way to Santiago many years ago, I...

      I have never noticed these mini-orchards for pilgrims on the ways of Saint James in France but I have been aware of the project. Here is a link to one of several articles about it: Orchards for pilgrims. The project is at least 10 years old. The...

      If a farmer was on his land and offered, it is one thing, but one farmer or local who allows this does not mean it is a blanket « yes » for all who cross the country.

      I've told the tale before about getting distracted for 5 minutes at Rabanal and having a brand new pack of toilet rolls - all 24 of them - looted with just the plastic wrapper left behind . . . Hark, hark! The dogs do bark, Beggars (Pilgrims?)...
