    Via Augusta in December!

    My main resources were https://www.mundicamino.com/rutas-camino-de-santiago/via-augusta/etapa/1/cadiz/puerto-real/tipo/trazado/ and https://www.caminosantiago.org/cpperegrino/caminos/caminover.asp?kCamino=ES36a&CaminoId=49. According to these resources, there were several places to stay in...

    Backpack indecision help!

    I'm going to look for a new backpack today with my son, who spent a lot of time researching what is available and possible last year, when he wanted a bigger pack. My requirements: good fit, with the right back length at least 60 l light well padded hip belt that fits me at least three...

    The electric coil changed my life on the Camino!

    Our coil was in use when we finished our walk to Trondheim this summer. This is our second coil - the first one got rusty after I put it away wet, this one will not suffer the same fate! Many hotel rooms in Norway do not have facilities for heating water - hah! We had tea and porridge every...

    Dombås - Trondheim - because Fokstugu opens too late

    I forgot to check in again - but we arrived in Trondheim Friday July 2nd. If you have any interest in tourism in Trondheim, check in at the Pilgrim Centre FIRST - because you're supposed to get free/reduced price entrance at many tourist attractions, and you need the brochure to convince the...

    Backpack indecision help!

    No need to push through bushes? You’ve stayed on the Camino Francés, then? The best argument for a big backpack is that you can take a whole Jamón Serrano home afterwards…

    Backpack indecision help!

    I have been walking with a 60 liter pack for the last 11 years, usually weighing in at 6-7 kg. This is the last walk for the poor thing, it is wearing through in a couple of places, the straps can’t be tightened properly and it’s frayed in several places. The side pockets are hard to pack...

    Borgleden

    We didn’t get anything, but were too late to go. So we’re keeping this walk in reserve. Perhaps later this summer?

    Dombås - Trondheim - because Fokstugu opens too late

    Hæverstølen is great - and there’s another pilgrim here, the first we have seen this walk: Wendy from Taiwan, who lives in Oslo. She has been doing this walk piecemeal and will arrive in Trondheim on Friday, just like us.

    Dombås - Trondheim - because Fokstugu opens too late

    Checking in from Oppdalsporten, roughly 140 km from Trondheim. Like last summer, we are less frightened of asphalt than the people who constructed this walk, so we have avoided some mountains, marshes and mosquitoes by following the roads instead. The views are still magnificent.

    Dombås - Trondheim - because Fokstugu opens too late

    I got our backpacks up from the basement today, and started packing. On Saturday morning, we're taking the train to Dombås. Hotels etc are much more expensive than in Spain and Portugal, but at least we don't have to fly there first...

    Dombås - Trondheim - because Fokstugu opens too late

    It is now less than a month until our departure. Today I printed all the reservations (we have to walk short distances, so having reservations everywhere is safer than just starting and risking having to walk longer than planned). Our first day, June 19th, we'll take the train from Oslo to...

    Borgleden

    Walk postponed - my husband (and therefore, me, too) in quarantine. Waiting for test results, no symptoms.

    I'll gladly share my spreadsheet- with people who are in Norway now, or with people who read this when Covid is a remote memory...
