    Continuing CF or switching to Invierno In Ponferrada?

    Currently I am in Ponferrada. I am still working out which way I will go tomorrow. The idea of taking the Invierno scares me and excites me at the same time. But I dislike the idea of making reservations in advance, which is probably necessary on the Invierno. Especially since I do not speak...

    Continuing CF or switching to Invierno In Ponferrada?

    Hola, Tomorrow I will reach Ponferrada, the big dicision awaits! I looked a bit into Invierno. The solitary aspects speaks to me but the possible lack of infrastructure not so much. On the Invierno it seems that a lot of people experiences unchained and agressive dogs on the way (and I am...

    Continuing CF or switching to primitivo?

    Hi Antonius. Exactely, I can relate to your perception of "atomised crowds". No group feeling, only formation of some smaller groups. Gives a lonely feeling. Was this different before, and what could explain this change?

    Almost 5,000 Compostelas issued today!

    Its crazy because I am now just after León and feel like the camino is not crowded at all. Usually the albergues remain quite empty and finding a place to stay is never a problem. Currently i am the only pelgrim in the albergie i am staying today (and feel sad for the owner because the albergue...

    Thanks everyone for the replies. I made up my mind and will finish with the Frances. Primitivo perhaps for another day.

    Continuing CF or switching to primitivo?

    I think you are right. I will finish the Frances and try to not overthink. This night I had a mervelous sleep so that will help.

    Continuing CF or switching to primitivo?

    Thanks for the tip. I was thinking about that! Any idea if there are enough open albergues along the way? Timewise i am not sure if it will work. 21 days left before my bus to the Netherlands leaves:p

    Continuing CF or switching to primitivo?

    Hi everyone, Juli 23th I started the camino Frances from SJPDP, and currently I am in Leon. The camino has been a wonderful but also very painful experience so far, i am still trying to find my way. I enjoy the walking but the social aspect is currently a bit difficult for me due to anxieties...

    Where to stay in Logroño?

    The donativo next to the church, Iglesia de Santiago - Barriocepo 8. Highly recommended. It is run by extremely warm hearted volunteers. There is a cummunal dinner and there is breakfastbuffet in the morning. You can help with preparing the food or doing the dishes. I've had a marvelous...

    Do I need to book albergues in advance for CF?

    I am walking atm and I can tell you there is no problem finding a bed, in whichever place/town you want. Non of the albergues I have been staying in so far have been full. Side note, i am only 5 days in and in september it might be different, however, I think generally august is a busier month...

    LIVE from the Camino Limoges to Santiago; experiences and thoughts

    New update: My back and my mind are getting calibrated to the camino. I feel better by the day. During my walk to Sainte-Foy-la-Grande the fog of the fire in Gironde blocked the sun: it was therefore cooler than predicted. Also you could smell the burning wood. In Sainte-Foy-la-Grande I stayed...
