    Hallo Susan, in my parish in Germany we have polish Franciscan Brothers and to my last birthday I got as a gift a book about this way from them. The way goes directly or nearby the coast of the Baltic Sea from Lithuania, the Kaliningrad area of...

    Marc S. reacted to Sedat's post in the thread Sufi Trail with Like.
    Hi Omar, The Sufi Trail guidebooks are accurate and the GPX/KML files are up to date. There is a place to sleep in any case in distances less than 50 kilometers but almost every village in Turkey has village guestrooms for travelling guests. I am...

    So I've been having a small dilemma recently as to which direction to go. I've been waiting for my donkey foul to grow up somewhat before embarking on another long distance trek. He is now eight months old and turning out to have an excellent...

    I think you are being spot on here. Before my first camino, I went to a shop to buy hiking boots, and the salesman actually wanted to also have a look at the soles of my shoes. Apparently he could tell by the way my soles were worn down, that I...
