    I used PolarSteps and it was very easy to use. Although it seems like people have to sign up to follow you - which limits some people from using - I had plenty of people who accessed the website and didn't sign up at all. I had a book made and it was great! It's a nice coffee table size and so...

    Is my daily average goal too ambitious?

    I walked with lots of people who cranked out 28-30+km a day consistently. I did several days of 28km and a few over 30. The thing I found is that the first week your body “gets used to” carrying your backpack, walking up and down mountains, over rocks for hours at a time. After the first week...

    I made it!!

    Well done! It's a wonderful feeling to walk into the square, isn't it? As someone told me before I began - and I think it's true - the real Camino starts after you get home, so... "Buen Camino!"

    So why am I addicted to the Camino?

    To someone who hasn’t done one, it seems so daunting and hard. But if you have, you know that it’s exactly the opposite - absolute simplicity. Yes to the people. Yes to knowing better who you are and are meant to be.

    Shipping items home from Santiago

    My husband will be meeting me in Santiago next week and we’ll continue elsewhere in Europe for another few weeks. He’s bringing other clothing and items of mine with him. I plan to throw/give away several things I’ve carried with me in my backpack, but there are a few items like my trusted...

    Death of a German pilgrim on the Camino Frances

    The fires are in the north of Spain. I’m in Cacabelos now and have been experiencing hazy skies for the last several days, along with the smell of smoke from time to time. And of course, the heat. The intense heat.

    Death of a German pilgrim on the Camino Frances

    Did the man have a wheelbarrow/trolley with him that he pulled by a belt on his waist by any chance? I’m trying to figure out if it was a father/daughter that I walked with off and on and stayed with at a couple albergues. Regardless, it’s tragic.

    Death of a German pilgrim on the Camino Frances

    Does anyone know if it was the partially blind man with the trolley he pulled behind him? I walked and stayed with them in several albergues and if it’s him, he was soaking in every minute and happy to share the experience with his daughter. Whether it was or wasn’t, many prayers for his family.

    Possible Ryan Air Strike?

    Thank you! Good to know as I’ll be headed to France during then.

    People walking 35 - 40 KM per day

    I’m on the Meseta now and I think for most people, getting out at 5 is more so to beat the heat. I for one would rather walk during the cooler hours and try to be in my albergue doing laundry and resting in the afternoon. I have met people that are doing 38km/day but most of those are people who...
