      I just completed the Camino Fracis. I got to the pilgrim office in time to get my compesela, and had a very positive experience there. I dedicated my camino to a close cousin who recently passed away, and I was unable to attend his funeral. I...

      Lots of advice, here's my 2 cents worth. Go for it, if after a couple of days, you are struggling, consider luggage transfer. If that doesn't work, hop on the bus/train and take a day off. Don't cancel, use it as a test/learning experience. Enjoy

      Lowtide replied to the thread Walking Poles.
      Hello, I like to collapse my poles when I get close to my accommodation and attach them to my pack. That way they don't get left behind or mistakingly taken, I get to keep them with me at my bunk on my pack! Enjoy 😉

      Lowtide replied to the thread Questions to ask about shoes.
      There are some extensive threads on fitting footwear. I have walked in many different ones and found the trsil runners best for me. They have good cushion reasonable support and are light. I have high arches and don't wear any special insoles. I...

      Hello, I have walked both caminos in the last 18 months. They are both safe to walk alone and easy to navigate and not get lost. The primetivo has a lot more elevation changes, but good services and special views. Lugo is a special place to...

      Lowtide replied to the thread Suggestions from Lisbon.
      Hello, I have done porto to Santiago in September and found the weather to be very nice for walking. If you like the ocean scenery I recommend doing porto to Vigo. Doable in 7 days with excellent transportation at both places. I have also done...
