Hi Ivar, I'm signed up for the weekly/Saturday email, but I haven't received it for the last couple of weeks. I started receiving a daily email about two weeks ago but unsubscribed using the link you posted recently. Did that unintentially change my subscription to the weekly/Saturday email? When I last accessed the link, it looked like I had checked the box to receive it.
Hi Ivar, I heard something today that 30/06 not 07/06 is the day Spain is planning to open up for USA arrivals. Have you seen anything about that? I have booked a flight for a 20/06 arrival and I'm looking to see if there is any truth to the change date.
As you may remember I have used your site and services for several years. Can you help me with information for the Camino Ebro. I wil walk the route in September then the Primativo. Do you have any information you can point me to for a guide? Thanks. David
I write to see if you might have any information about how I might contact the couple named Manuel Casado and Svetlana who used to run the Hostel Fuentestrella in Hontanas. I have a documentary film on the Camino coming out soon and I would like to include scenes of them at their pilgrim dinner in the film.
Hei Ivar. Eg tillit meg å skrive på norsk, ikkje alltid like lett å forklare på engelsk.. eg er tulle frå forumet, og til vanleg er eg pålogga heile tida. Men no må eg logge inn sjøl om eg er inne fleire gonger for dag. Eg kryssar av i Stay inlogged, men det hjelper ikkje. Må det vere slik? Elles tusen takk for eit flott forum!
Hi Ivar; I'm planning to walk any of the last 100 km (time constraints) starting Christmas and reaching New Year's Eve Santiago. I would be happy to hear some advice on feasibility and hotels and options for participating in events. I live in Spain(Barcelona) and have travelled the Camino Frances by bike and foot last year. Thanks, Simon
Hi Ivar. First let me sincerely thank you for the Herculean effort that you are putting into sharing the current status of the Camino. I am planning to do it again next year and I appreciate you keeping us appraised of the pandemic there. I have noticed quite a few people asking for stories about the Camino. I have one (1600 words) that I would like to share with fellow peregrinos. How can I best do this?
Hi Ivar !
My son flying from San Diego to New York with JetBlue .. as you can see the plane is half empty
Covid test results just on time!
Tomorrow Newark to Paris with United .. let’s see the procedure to embark ! And the arrival in Charles de Gaulle
I like the Surf logo distanciation though ! So Californian!
Hi Ivar . I m following a friend from Romania that will end Camino Frances soon. Maybe another interview with this friend will be interesting for pilgrims that had to cancel their pilgrimage this period. ( east european perspective and conclusion about Camino Frances post-pandemia). Thank you . (firstname.lastname@example.org)
seems somehow i lost the ability to send PMs to members. IIRC there was a button under member's avatar to 'start a conversation'? and now I do not see it at all no matter who I 'click on'
Hi Ivar. Really enjoyed the Zoom meeting today. Thank you for coordinating. As mentioned on the call, just wondering as a future topic we could cover phones, internet, Wi-Fi on the Camino. Possibly another topic might be banking? Cheers, Mike
Porto accomodations? Hello all. I will be solo walking the Portuguese central route commencing in Porto in mid-March. Although I will be staying in albergues along the way I'd like to stay in a modestly priced private room in central Porto for two nights before I start walking. Any recommendations?
I have just finished reading Rebekah’s book which I have enjoyed hugely. I would like to start a new thread saying this such that maybe others who have read the book come foreward. Would that be considered advertising? Advertisements are against forum rules, I think. And anyway I do not know how to start a thread. Help!!!
Hi, in August 2018, I had a conversation with a fellow Australian outside the railway station at Bayonne regarding socks. Forgotten the name of the socks. Just wondering if the gentleman recalls the conversation. He was on his way to del Norte and we were starting the Camino Frances. Would love to find out the name of the socks. Thanks.
Want to walk Francés next year Sept and Oct. I'm female and will be 73. I'm fit but I'll need to stay in alberques, etc. Are lots still open then? A friend is considering joining me Nov 22 - 28. If so, I'd need to go the last 2 weeks of Oct and most of Nov with us walking together the last week. How daunting is the weather then? I read high temps in the 50's F and lows near freezing with lots of rain and snow.
Does anyone know of a baggage transport service that takes backpacks from Pontevedra on the spiritual variante to Armenteira? Need assistance ASAP. Sincerest thanks! Tui Transport is a no go on the variente!
I am thinking about walking one of the caminos in the spring or summer time - as a starter - it will be my first - can anyone recomend me a route which goes in aeras of free nature and small pueblos, and as few towns and highways as possible?
I am grateful for any advice.
Hi. I am planing my trip by bike. Does buses take bikes on the board as well ? And do I have to disassemble it before trip. I am trying to plan my way back from Fisterra to Santander and I have no idea what is the best way to travel. I am traveling on my own with a bicycle.
Hi Ivar-- My older son is meeting me in Burgos carrying two backpacks on the 11th. We will be arriving in Santiago either Good Friday or the Saturday before Easter, and flying out on Easter Sunday. (We're only walking till Leon this time.) Can we ship one of his packs to you? Are you open for us to pick it up that week-end? Do we just find a post office? Thanks--
Good day All!
What would you favorite Camino Frances guide app for iPhone7, and what is your favorite paper version?
Any suggestions for a good battery pack?
All answers will be much appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
So I started a thread today asking how to get to SJPdP from Philadelphia. Of course I missed the existing thread (Getting to SJPDP from the US) that was started by patticake5 about a month ago.
Perhaps you can combine them (i.e. incorporate mine into hers)?
My name is Matthew and I'm looking for 11cmx11cm conch shell ceramic tiles. Not the magnets, the tiles. I'm looking to purchase, like 100, maybe 200 of them. So far the suggestions on the forums are a dead end. Is there a way to purchase directly from someone in Spain and ship them to the USA?
Deleted member 39850
I've tried twice to delete my account, but cannot find the "delete" option. I have used the link you provided, Ivar, in a thread about how to delete one's account, but the option simply isn't there. It's isn't even that it's not showing up on my screen for some formatting reason. I have used the "FIND" feature in my browser and "delete" is not found. Can you please, please delete my account? I keep receiving emails
I have installed the Casa Ivar App again and it still will not work. Latest updates and Android 8.0.0 version.
states "oops, we ran into some problems- requested page cannot be found.
Or is it discontinued and yet still on Google play ?
Recently I have journeyed from Porto to Santiago de Compostela. Besides personal interest to walk the Camino, I also walked for research purposes. I wish to interview people who walked one of the Portuguese routes about their experiences. Can I have permission to place a request to interview on the forum?
Good afternoon Ivar, Im just starting to plan to do the French walk to Santiago with my wife in April 2020 and I would like to stay in Hotels instead of Hostels etc. My question is: are there hotels across the entire French walk-in so, how do I get a list of Hotels?
Thanking you in advance, Carlos
I am curious to know how members of this forum are classified. "Donating Member" is obvious, but what distinguishes "member" from "active member"? Does it mean activity in the number of postings, or actual pilgrim activity ? And at what point is one considered to be "active" ?
I'm contacting you with a request to change my username on the Forum, please. I like the one I have, but I figure that as I am "more of a "public figure" now given my role at Eunate and as a guide on the Camino, I should use my real name so that people can find me a little more easily. If you would, I'd like to change it to CJ Williams. Thanks very much for your help. Kind regards.
I am walking the camino in the hight of summer,July nad August,what is the heat going to be like,i go to the costa del sol quite a lot in summer so I know its hot, but is it as hot as it is on the del sol?
Tickets purchased and Orisson reservation confirmed. This will be my second French Camino, the first time the Napolean route was closed (March 2016) Hiking May 3, 2018, and keeping fingers crossed. Anyone else planning on doing the Camino this May?
Hi Ivar... I just sent 60 euros and wanted to help you keep your formum going. In September and October of 2014 We met in your office in Santiago and you spoke of your plans for this formum and is it exciting to see them unfold so well!! I plan to do another Camino in the next year. I
Help. I cannot post when I have a question. Have tried four or five times since 7 Sept, about when I joined. Nor can I download camino PDFs from my iPhone6. Clearly I doing something very wrong. Could you help? Gracias. Nancy Drew
My charity is called Camino4Cancer. I'll walk Le Puy for the charity. I have terminal cancer and will walk pilgrimages around the world as long as I can to raise funds to help people suffering from cancer. Can we spread the word about my charity through you? It doesn't benefit me financially in any way and does not support my caminos. Any way to spread the word for this cause to other pilgrims would help.
I am looking for a hotel in Bayonne France. I stayed there 5 years ago and it was directly across the street from the train station. Can't remember the name. Can you help? Name and contact info would be great.
Thank you for this forum. I am a praying-to-be pilgrim, and signed up in excited haste awhile back, using a name I now really don’t like: pilgrim warrior... or was it warrior pilgrim?
In any case, could you puleeze change it to “pilgrim gurl”???
Muchos gracias (yes, I’ve started to learn Spanish!),
Hola Ivar, I am currently in Santiago, having completed the Portuguese Camino yesterday. I am going to walk some more and would like to leave some things with you in Santiago and don't know how to go about doing that?
Thank you, Joseph (Chito)

Hello, Ivar! Are you familiar with SendMyBag services? We are hoping to ship our suitcases from our current location (Copenhagen) directly to the Casa Ivar. Have you received bags via SMB from other pilgrims? Would you recommend their service? We are looking forward to our journey beginning May 1st. Thank you!
We are ready for our Camino! End of May/June . We made our reservations and thanks to all the wonderful information on this forum we are confident that we will be just fine! Looking forward to meeting so many wonderful people and contributing to the Camino Family.

Hi! I have a question. My sister and I walked the Camino in June 2014. We are now working on a project about our pilgrimage. We will be looking for stories from our fellow pilgrims. Is there an appropriate Forum where we can post this without breaking the rules?
Nordiac walking poles vs hiking poles
Hi guys with bad knees and ordinary back I have heard Nordiac walking poles and walking style will help me for my walk next starting SJDP, does anyone have any first hand experience or knowledge with this please. Cheere
I posted a new thread yesterday called 'Can you replace a souvenir from Santiago for my mum in Australia?' Someone commented and suggested I reach out to you. Can you see my post and let me know if you're able to assist please.
Ivar, I can't post anything! Not even in PM mode. Not sure what is happening. On every thread I get the bar that appears when moderating a thread, even when I have not chosen to moderate the thread. But I can't do anything with it - when I try it comes up with an error message.
don't know if its your thing, but having a mobile friendly way to download .pdf's would be helpful
currently I can't download any of the wonderful resources , my android phone won't do it.
I have downloaded pdf's before ok. cheers
Hello everyone. Will be starting my Camino from SJPP in two weeks and wondering if there is any information regarding the condition of the route over the mountains into Roncesvalles.
Thanks in advance.
