      martin1ws reacted to Old Bamboo's post in the thread want solitude with Like Like.
      I too prefer solitude on the trail. Your best bet is to leave late since most try to get an early (sometimes very early) start. By leaving late most will already be far down the trail. And also concentrate on hiking in the later afternoon when...

      martin1ws reacted to J Willhaus's post in the thread Pilgrimage or vacation? with Like Like.
      We have always divided our time and we call part of it "vacation" and part of it "pilgrimage". Friends and family just call it our annual "trip to Spain", because mostly they don't have a good idea of what we are doing when (volunteering, walking...

      martin1ws replied to the thread want solitude.
      I read about bed races and the last 100km after Sarria on the Camino Frances... and I decided to start in August 2018 with the Camino Aragones from Somport -> Camino Frances -> Camino de Invierno and so I had more solitude than if I would have...

      Wow, that’s a loaded question, and answer’s could easily break the forum rules if not carefully worded. The simplest answer is, for some it’s a pilgrimage, whether done for religious/spiritual reasons or not. For others, a walking holiday...

      martin1ws reacted to Tincatinker's post in the thread Water, water... with Like Like.
      I drink a litre between getting up, using the ablutions, remembering who I am and what it is I’m trying to achieve and setting boot to tarmac (other surfaces may be available). On the Frances, with a couple of exceptions, I’ll carry 500ml, drink...

      I confess: I like cold beer. I like breaks (with a cold beer and tortilla). I like orujo with a coffee. I like communal meals. I like getting to know other pilgrims. I like conversations, spiritual or whatever. I like to explore and do food in...

      All the stupid things people do that others waste their time to get irritated about... Live and let live, and just walk on in peace. Let stupid be stupid, and just walk away. There's quite a few of those out there, not least politicians, and...
