    Pathfinder075 replied to the thread Things to do in Sarria.
    If you are reasonably fit, the last 100km on the CF are not hard. The hardest part is the first day, going up that hill in the trees on the other side of the railway tracks. Which reminds me, when you leave Sarria in the morning, if it's dark...

    If you are heading out to Finisterre, the church/chapel by the sea at Muxia is worth a look. It's where I went after my first year walking and just sat for about an hour thinking over my journey...

    Pathfinder075 replied to the thread backpack_size.
    If you are fit and healthy and have no need to carry lots of medication or a CPAP machine, etc. Then a 40 should be more than adequate.

    I wouldn't, but that's just me. There wasn't a great deal to do when I went through. You could maybe consider grabbing a bus up to Lugo and having a look around up there. That is worth a look and plenty of good things to see. Also, If you...

    Use Gronze and build you own stages based on your own fitness level. I walk 15-25 miles per day on camino, and am in my late 40s. My fitness level is average. If you want to walk 15-20 miles a day you need to stay on top of the condition of...

    Pathfinder075 replied to the thread Buying an albergue.
    I have walked twice and some albergues were worth more money, some most definitely not. Some were privately owned some were owned by companies, some by the local councils. The ones owned by companies were generally expensive for what you got...

    As I remember you have to go to a door outside to get the stamp at the cathedral in Santander. Almost like the staff entrance, maybe the door to the presbytery. The first year I walked I asked and that's where I had to go. The downstairs...

    I think anytime you are walking off the mainstream routes, this should be standard behaviour. On Frances, Norte, VdlP, etc, tents are for people who need tents (for whatever reason). On anything else, especially the routes that are not often...

    Pathfinder075 replied to the thread How hot is "hot"?.
    If you live in a hot country, it shouldn't be too bad. If you live in a cool country (and can walk off peak), September-November is a good time to walk. I like to walk in the late summer/early autumn. Daytime temps are warm, but night temps...
