      I stayed at 12 Tribes last year. Yes, they’re a religious group, but it’s also a safe, reasonably priced place to stay for a night. And it is really beautiful there.

      In 2017 as I walked past the houses just past the twelve tribes' albergue a young man (ok, 30s or 40s) came out of the house and walked with me part way into San Sebastian. We talked but I heard not a word about any religion. He offered to...

      Thanks for all your suggestions! My wife has already done the Portuguese way a number of years ago with a friend and her child and they found it amazing so I think we will try a different one on this occassion. Based on a bit of research and your...

      Each of you should carry a lightweight UV umbrella and walk on the Camino Frances. Use sunscreen on bare arms and legs. Eat ice cream. Rest in open churches. They are cooler. Light candles. Have fun. Buen Camino

      I think the Camino Portuguese would be lovely for kids...the coastal route from Porto is beautiful along the beach with a breeze. If you plan to book ahead, Tui Trans is a reliable transport. I would personally lighten loads to walk in the heat...

      Take the Frances - you know your family better than anyone; but in your place I’d want more infrastructure than the C de Madrid offers. Stating the bleedin’ obvious as usual: it’s going to be rather warm in Spain in July and no matter how...

      Bilbao is a beautiful city. To me, more enjoyable than Santander. Walking into Bilbao from the east is a tough downhill slog. Walking out of it, to the north, on either side of the river, is a mess. Take the metro about 10 km to Portugalete...

      A miracle? On my first Camino I had made a vow to collect litter everyday. One early morning I realized that I didn’t have a plastic bag to put the litter in. On top of the very first mojone I passed that day was a supermarket carrier bag with an...

      Hi, I did this last year after walking from Leon to Ponferreda as I needed to make up some time. It is a quiet road and plenty of room at the road side to be safe, but it is steep, and may be lonely. I didn't see anyone else on my walk up. That...

      I do not know how you can definitively say one way or the other this person's preference on where he wants to start. Based on what the OP wrote he may actually walk to O'Cebreiro from the bus. In my own mind, there is nothing that @Rebekah Scott...
