    Meseta 2019

    Walked this summer and one of the highlights was staying in Hospital de Orbigo at ALBERGUE SAN MIGUEL, Jose and Piera are lovely as is their albergue. And then taking the alternate route out of Hospital toward Astorga was another of the highlights for me of this Camino.

    Traveling from Valencia to Pamplona then SJPdP

    I am visiting a friend for a few days in Valencia prior to returning to walk the Camino Frances in June. I need to be in St Jean by 4 June. I'm thinking that I can take a train or bus to Pamplona and then bus or taxi to SJPdP. Anyone traveled from Valencia to SJPdP before? Recommendations...
