    Quick bit of advice

    Thanks for all the advice. It is most welcome. My wife and I are experienced walkers but planning ahead is always the key. In a way, the CF kind of pampers you a little as there is almost always somewhere to get food and supplies...which is why I asked the original question. Also, I have been...

    Quick bit of advice

    Thanks for this...we are aware of the situation and will be keeping a close eye on things...our plan is for starting towards the end of September but if this doesn't happen for whatever reason, we might look at spring 2022... You are right, things are very fluid and the numbers will decide...

    Quick word in praise...

    That is a real shame...In wonder why it was discontinued?

    Quick word in praise...

    It doesn't look like that when you open it...it has a trail of red dots, denoting the route of the Camino and at times there are also trails in green, offering alternative routes...and there is a flashing blue dot, telling you where you are... Does that sound familiar?

    Quick word in praise...

    It's an app that I was convinced I had downloaded from this site but the weird thing is, I can't now find where on the site it is. It was so useful when we did the Camino so I wanted to give it a thumbs up. On my phone, it is called Camino Places and when I open it, it mentions 'Wisely' and...

    Quick word in praise...

    ...of the fantastic app that I downloaded from here... Apologies as I am sure there is a thread for it. However, my wife and I finished our first Camino on 25th October...it was bloody wonderful and we loved it...(in spite of one or three very sweary days!!)... I just wanted to say that the...
