    My first winter Camino done

    I found this very interesting to compare with my Camino. I turned 77 a few days into my CF which started on 24th September 2019. The weather was nothing like as bad as you had, although the wind and rain was epic on the Meseta. I got to Santiago in 41 days, so averaging just over 19 Km per day...

    The Camino does NOT start in StJpdP - discuss

    There's one born every minute. That's why they can charge it!

    Planning the Camino de Santiago

    The consensus on this forum seems to be not to plan and if you don't mind sleeping anywhere with a bed/bunk it is good advice. However, if, like me, you want to sleep only in private rooms then some advance planning is essential. This is because private rooms are exceptional, unlike dormitories...

    Too ambitious?

    Thank you too!

    Too ambitious?

    Thanks to all of you. There is a wealth of good advice in your replies and I have taken heart. I will now abandon the hair shirt and make life as easy as possible! I want to complete my Camino in the time I have, but enjoy it too. So I will start in Pamplona and forward my pack frequently. It...

    Too ambitious?

    Thank you. I have reconciled myself to be realistic about breaking off early if necessary.

    Too ambitious?

    I will be 77 a few days in to my proposed CF from the end of September. I have allowed 43 days so an average of 18.5 Km per day. In my training I have yet to manage as much as that, but my training schedule should get me to 22Km(once) before I fly out. As I have never before been fit it's very...

    How many days walking for Camino Frances

    I will be 77 a few days in to my proposed CF from the end of September. I have allowed 43 days so an average of 18.5 Km per day. In my training I have yet to manage as much as that, but my traing schedule should get me to 22Km. As I have never before been fit it's very daunting, but with...

    OK to start in Mercadorio?

    Thanks. We'll go from there and be prepared to persuade a reluctant helper.

    OK to start in Mercadorio?

    According to the planner: https://godesalco.com/plan/frances it's 100.3 km to Santiago. Perhaps I should plan from the village before.

    OK to start in Mercadorio?

    Mercadorio is just over 100km from Santiago, so would starting there qualify for a Compostella? My wife wants to join me for the last 100km, but would like to do as short a route as possible.

    LIVE from the Camino Photography project on the Camino

    Beautiful! I love your style. I plan to take video on my Camino in October using a small DSLR; not much idea of the end product, but I expect it will present itself when I start to edit. Thanks for showing your shots.

    Maps: a Basic Skill

    I love maps. I was very much into motor rallying in Southern Ireland in the 60s and 70s. We had Ordnance Survey maps of 1/2 inch to the mile - Ireland never had the 1 inch of the UK - navigating using them and a list of 6 figure map references was highly skilled and very much part of the...
