    Train and bus schedule.

    MonBus used to have a direct route to Sarria at around 3pm, weekdays. It doesn't show it anymore, even though Rome2Rio still advises about it. Their webpage doesn't let to chose Sarria as a bus station at all now, neither from nor to Sarria. I emailed them last week and was said that schedules...

    The Introverted Pilgrim

    Thank you for bringing it up, Dave. Probably funny at my age, but one of the things I was hoping for, that Camino could "heal" my introversion :) It didn't. Though I enjoyed meeting new people, very much appreciated helpfulness and Camino spirit, I felt very awkward and unease my first night in...

    Second-hand walking poles in SdC

    Hi all, We are walking from Sarria to Sdc and then Muxia/Fisterra in the beginning of June. As flying both ways with hand luggage only not able to take our walking poles. Were planning to buy ones, but then we would need to get rid of them again... Seems not really effective and hardly...

    Should I take a sleeping bag? (early October camino)

    Depends on how warm you are yourself :) I was walking in October last year using a fleece liner from SeatoSummite - I was COLD! Luckily there are blankets in most albergues. In a few places though I had to put on all my clothes and put a rain poncho on top of myself to keep warm.

    Casa Magica - new management

    It's a shame... The paella was really good. Even though you could get it everywhere, as it's not originated from the regions where CF goes through, it's normally quite average... But you can't expect previous owners to run cooking classes for new ones, I guess... Casa Magica used to be vegan...

    Pamplona at 4am

    Hi guys, Just considering our options of getting from Barcelona to Pamplona. If we miss the latest Renfe train on the day (18.40) we may need to catch the night bus instead, that arrives at 4 am :D Any ideas where to stay for a few hours in Pamplona? I don't recall if there was a waiting room...

    300 Bedbug Bites

    @Linainuk, so sorry you have been "attacked" so badly. Please care about yourself, see the doctor and treat your stuff. It's very hard to determine where bedbugs came from... Unfortunately, either can be true - the albergue already had them or you brought them with you... :'( I'm lucky, as...

    Pyrenees or O'Cebreiro

    Thank you, @VNwalking :) I researched it a bit, looks doable. Just because it requires lots of pre-planning and advance reservation, I'm afraid to loose flexibility, especially as unsure if possible to find bag sending service before merging with Sanabres... I don't want mum to feel too much...

    Pyrenees or O'Cebreiro

    Thank you, guys :) We keep thinking. As we go as a family, sorry if it hurts anyone, we are not really looking for “Camino family”, though would be glad to meet new people every night. Especially, as my parents do not speak English, and unlikely my 14yo meets a lot of peers of her age to connect...

    To Orisson or not to Orisson...

    Agree with the opinion, that two nights in SJPP might be too many. I arrived into town around 11.30am, in a couple of hours I walked it through and was starting to get bored, though its a beatiful town of course, and walked to Orisson. Next day was an easy stroll to Roncevalles.

    Pyrenees or O'Cebreiro

    Thanks. I foolishly thought this route “operates” during winter only :D I understand, it was originally made to avoid mountains climbs? Not sure, its what we want... Though, June being one of the popular months on CF scares me a lot - both me and my dad are uncurable introverts ;)

    Cheap but fine equipment

    Thanks, good to know. Will look into it. :) No, I have not. I bought a few things for my daughter, including the backpack. ;) now just need to test those. Unfortunately, it wouldnt work for my parents. We bought them Keen sandals, while they were here, but sending from AU to EU costs a fortune...

    Pyrenees or O'Cebreiro

    Thank you everyone for their kind advice. Looked at pictures of Sierras de Ancares and Sierra de Courel (the Camino follows kind of between two) and both look very splendid. I undestand, that after all, the final impression from mountains depends on the weather that day. I was lucky to have a...

    Pyrenees or O'Cebreiro

    Thank you for such a beatiful insight, Andrea, lots to think about :) “Nezabudka” is the name for forget-me-not flower in most slavic languages. I’m originally from Latvia ;)
