      Canadian brand Unbound Merino has done ok for us. We both have t-shirts and my husband especially likes that you can get V-neck collars. I have a travel dress from them. It is my go to summer evening clothes. Can double as a nightgown or a dress...

      Some albergues will likely be closing for the season beginning in mid October, however once you reach Galicia all the Xunta owned albergues will be open. (Open 365 days per year.) There are many of those on this route. They don't take...

      Phil W reacted to J Willhaus's post in the thread Etiquette using cPAP machines with Like Like.
      The batteries are quite heavy. We used them for car camping or for our travel trailer, but are heavier than my machine so too heavy for the Camino. I would not send my machine with luggage transfer. I carry it with me as I do my medications.

      There are quite a few forum members who use CPAPs in albergue dorms with no problems. @J Willhaus and @dougfitz come to mind.

      I've been home for a week now, and just don't know what to do with myself. Yes, I have plenty of things that I can do around the house, but I miss that simple goal of walking to my next destination and furthering myself on the path to Santiago...

      When not on the camino, the one place that I find in real life is most consistently kind, with people seeking to help each other and not block opportunities *is* in my local church. The Camino is built on Matthew 25:35-40 which set the basis and...

      What you experienced and are currently experiencing is not uncommon. What you and your wife are trying to figure out how to implement in your life, I did my version of 7 years ago. For me, I was reminded to be mindful, live in this moment. If...

      Phil W reacted to falconbrother's post in the thread Home from the Camino with Like Like.
      I'm on day three back at work from walking the Camino Frances. I feel a bit homesick. I could have lived that life indefinitely I think. I wasn't ready for it to be over, when it was over. My wife said it best: "The Camino is what the...

      Phil W reacted to Rebekah Scott's post in the thread most scenic section appox 50-75km with Like Like.
      The Camino is a pilgrimage. If you don't intend to walk to Santiago, please stay at hostels and hotels, and leave the dedicated pilgrim-only accommodations for the pilgrims.

      Phil W reacted to Grousedoctor's post in the thread Weight, Heat, Humidity with Like Like.
      Just a couple things to keep in mind for your successful Camino: 1. You will hit some hot weather, but very reasonable humidity. Like so many of your fellow pilgrims, start early and try to finish early afternoon. I’ve always liked walking just...
