      Jodean reacted to good_old_shoes's post in the thread Entry to Burgos with Like Like.
      You can still walk it. But the entrance point is not marked currently. After Orbaneja Riopico there's a bridge. Also some houses and trash cans. That's where the routes divide. Go left there at the Trash cans, then at the rest stop / sports...

      My thighs hurt, but I would certainly ride again! Have never heard anyone say it hurt so bad they wouldn’t do it again.

      Lisa, I wrote my response in January, before anyone knew what kind of scam was happening with WOACA. I would no longer recommend that group to women.

      Jodean reacted to Bala's post in the thread Botafumerio out of service with Like Like.
      It's hardly private. Anyone who has seen the botafumerio at any time other than the 10 or so specific days listed on the Cathedral website has seen it because some one or some group has paid for it. Mass is open to anyone who arrives on time to...

      Another option: Laguna de Castilla, 1.1 km past La Faba. One of cleanest albergues I've stayed in with excellent bar/food, great patio and best mountain view since the Pyrenees. Utterly charming spot. If you stay there you might get to O'Cebreiro...

      Jodean reacted to Marian Patricia's post in the thread Break O’Cebreiro climb with Like Like.
      We walked from Vega de Valcarce to O Cebreiro (age 66) carrying our packs and didn’t find it that bad at all. Uphill, yes - but we are from the prairies where hill training was not available - all we had at our disposal was stair climbing and we...

      I did exactly that. Stayed in Las Herrerias and contacted Victor the day before through WhatsApp to book a horse. He only has 4 horses, so maybe try and book earlier than I did. Then over at O'Cebreiro, he knew the lady who owns one of the hotels...

      Stayed at Casa Susi in Trabadelo, then walked to La Escuela to overnight. Single beds & great food in the restaurant. Next morning 1.5 km to O Cebrio (sunrise!!!!) then on to Fonfria. Have ridden the horses too & it makes for a unique...

      Have you considered Victor's horses for that climb? You get that in Los Herreiras (still need to transport the big pack). That will take you all the way up to O Cebreiro... At the time of my walk I was 62 and walked from Vega de Valcarce to...

      Maybe walk up the coast for a few days then train to Valenca & finish from there. We did this in 2018 & it worked well
