    Well no snow here in southern Alberta, Canada other than on the screen and the forecast indicates even we won't be having a white Christmas this year! Wouldn't you know it....bought the grandkids toboggans for Christmas!

    New albergue in Alpriate -- 20 km from Lisbon cathedral

    We are hoping to stop here our first night. It looks like you cannot book ahead so am wondering if it is full most nights? Also if it is first come first serve....about what time of day does this happen that it is full? Thanks for any help with this.

    What to read on the Camino?

    Everyone is different in what they like to do while on the Camino. I haven't got a particular book to suggest but maybe try checking out TripFiction..... a site where you can search for books written about/or take place in a certain geographical location.

    Orisson or Roncesvalles?

    Hi Frank - I would highly recommend walking only to Hunto (as Orisson is already booked) your first day. We did the Camino Frances in 2016 and we were both in our 50's. Originally we had planned to go all the way to Roncesvalles but 3 weeks before our Camino I had an appendectomy and we...

    Can hiking poles be carried on board airplanes?

    My husband and I have had the same experience with these poles. We only use carry on packs and never check them. We have flown to/from London , Madrid , Nice, Taipei , Bangkok, Delhi , Calgary, Athens , Venice and never had any problem going through security with them.
