    Is it called pramoxine here in Spain? Is that what I should ask for?

    Bed bug bite HELP

    My daughter has gotten bed bug bites (pretty sure). She has sensitive skin so it’s pretty bad. I read that the bites can appear over the course of several days. She continues to show new bites. We washed all our clothes in hot water (according to the woman helping me) and dried them in dryer. I...

    I may be crazy....

    Many thanks. We are here on Camino in Molinaseca. I reserved the bus and had plenty of time even though our plane was 1 hour delayed. However the bus was mismarked And we would have missed it if I hadn’t been anxious and kept asking. But, all good in the end. Daughter injured first day. Got a...

    Hah. I definitely prefer train travel. Still mulling the various options.

    Yes. I have that option "in my pocket". She's confident she can make it but its always good to have options.

    Sorry. One more thing. Do busses sell out? Could we purchase tickets when we arrive in Madrid? This would give us some flexibility in an earlier departure if our flight gets in on time.

    Thanks so much! Looks like the train and bus arrive at about the same time. Bus sounds easy and we wouldn't need to deal with getting to train station. thanks for the advice.

    How much time do you think I will need between landing at the airport and train departure? It looks like the trains depart from Madrid-Chamartin. Our plane lands at 10:00 and I am trying to decide the earliest we could depart by train.

    I may be crazy....

    My 22 yr. old daughter just secured a job after college graduation (Yippee) and we are celebrating with a very last minute trip for 2 weeks of walking the Camino Frances. My husband and I completed the Camino in 2017 but my daughter is a newbie. I just bought airfare yesterday and her pack still...

    Vaseline on feet?

    I had horrible blisters on my camino in 2017. Doing a last minute (leave in 2 weeks) camino beginning in Leon and worried sick about blisters. Would the Engo Patches help to prevent blisters on the toes? Not worried about my heels. Using different shoes (Hoka's instead of boots) and maybe...

    Help for Portugues Newbie

    My husband and I walked the Frances in 2017 and are desperately hoping to walk the Portuguese beginning mid October. It will be a last minute decision and not sure if we will start in Lisbon or Porto (depends on how much time we can get). A few questions: 1. I was going to walk in Hoka Bondi...

    Journaling on the Camino

    I imagine you are already there and have lots to write about. We walked the Camino last year Sept-Oct. and I wrote each day in a very inexpensive note pad. On the 1 year anniversary of our start date I began to read a journal entry each day. It was a wonderful way to remind ourselves of our...

    average daily distance

    My husband and I (58 yrs. young) walked the Camino last summer and found that 22-25 km was our sweet spot. We did a few of the over 30km days but didn't enjoy it. In fact, we spent quite a bit of time in our alburgue one day changing our flights back to the States to give us a bit of extra...
