You state that you have knee problems. I agree with Señor Jacques that a wonderful place to start is Pamplona.
When I started out of SJPP, I had NEVER had any knee problems, . . . I GOT knee problems the first week with the steep downhill sections into Roncesvalles and the equally treacherous...
Do you veterans suggest we purchase our tickets for the ALSA bus from Pamplona to SJPP ahead of time? Or leave ourselves open to the possibility of sharing a taxi with other peregrinos we might meet?
I wonder if we can purchase the ticket from the bus driver the day of?
I use AllTrails app in the United States which has worked well for me. I did pay for the "pro" membership. I have already downloaded the entire CF to use offline in May. However, I am curious if anyone else had the chance to use it on the Camino.
Because I wrote to them a month ago and did not receive a reply until this morning. In the meantime I booked at a different albergue. If I can stay at one place and attend mass at the other, I can give each some financial support after tough COVID years.
Thank you Kathar1na for the link.
A question: Not sure I understand - one of the lines requires the traveler to list the name and/or address of the accommodation. Do we need to fill out the brief form every night we stay in a different albergue or rural hotel?
