    jazzhorse replied to the thread Casa Ivar Dear all.
    I definitely benefitted from this Forum as I planned my 2020-oops-delayed-to-2021 Camino and am sad I wasn't able to meet you in person when I arrived in Santiago. Adding in my thanks for all you do! One suggestion - as a fairly low-tech...

    I understand people think this way, but maybe some people don’t want the camaraderie or have other reasons for staying in hotels. Personally I suffered a devastating loss recently and was using the Camino as a way to have time to think that isn’t...

    I've never thought about preparing myself mentally for the Camino nor have I used the Camino to answer questions about the mystery of life, what my purpose is, etc., nor with the intention to fix or change myself or my life. I believe in just...

    I’m not a fan of the port a loo idea, for lots of reasons but regarding solutions I offer this - which I posted recently on another thread. “ … I think we would all agree that less (no) loo paper on camino paths would be great! I'm all for...

    I suppose you might consider my post #3 above to fall under that category. But those instructions might just illustrate how important it is to understand where the confusion starts. If we miss that point, none of the remaining instructions are...

    jazzhorse reacted to Sue127's post in the thread Pack it in, pack it out with Like Like.
    Totally agree with @jazzhorse it was the one thing that disappointed, and in fact, disgusted me about the francés. We can all get taken short but, if you can't Bury it, please take a bag like a doggie poo bag and take it with you to a more...

    To all fellow pilgrims, I wish to say that my first Camino (Portuguese Coastal) was wonderful and I am still processing the many blessings. However, I was very sad to see one thing: many tissues and wipes on the ground where people stepped off...
