    Multiple disabilities?

    Go for it! I have all kinds of stuff messed up with me and gonna do it again for the 3rd time. Diabetes, cancer, high bp, high colesteral, and probably a few more, but I don't really worry about it...just deal with it and the world will keep spinning, and the sun will rise in the morning.

    Warning: Improper behavior reported between Astorga and Rabanal

    I just did 4 weeks on the trail-no pepper spray required. You will meet up with some of the most fascinating people you will ever meet. Use your common sense and merge into a normal group of people and simply say hello. Most of the time you get open arms instead of middle fingers-thank goodness...

    I live in Spain, so will be doing the camino in the fashion I like to call "Cheating the Camino" . I went on a bus ride from my house to the train station and went to Pamplona. Stayed in the alburge for the first night and took off the next day. Ended up in Burgos 2 weeks later and it was a trip...

    Starting in Pamplona

    I just bussed into Pamplona and stayed at the alburgue close to the main plaza in town(near the bull ring). Just get a good nights rest and start fresh in the morning. Follow the signs inside the sidewalk and the yellow arrows..they will lead you thru and out of the city. Happy trails whatever...

    Cost of Camino

    30€ per day seems to be the concensus ...hmmmm..that is about 1,000 euros per month, so I think by eating fruit and vegetables with water and a can of tuna fish with a loaf of fresh bread 3 out of 7 days a week, That price can even go lower....depending on your eating habits and self-control..

    Best months to walk the Camino Frances: May/June or Sept/Oct?
