      In 2018, I completed my first Camino de Santiago. Those 34 days were magical, filled with stunning landscapes and connections with fellow pilgrims from around the world. What was meant to be a once-in-a-lifetime adventure turned into a recurring...

      I did the Camino in 2019. I recall the menu but didn't even notice the map - makes so much sense now! :) guessing the windy path down is through the forest - that's the route I took, while some of our less sure-footed party took the paved path -...

      Richard Smith reacted to naplesdon's post in the thread Caminho without a phone with Like Like.
      I am from the same mindset and era as Bradypus, forced to resign from walking Camino in 2019 due to my health. I remember finding lodging each night without a reservation and using computers in libraries along the way to communicate with friends...

      Richard Smith reacted to t2andreo's post in the thread Caminho without a phone with Like Like.
      It seems to me that the main problem when walking a Camino without a smartphone, by design or as enforced on you (e.g. by loss or theft), is that virtually everyone else has one. Hence, they have the advantage over you in route finding, finding...

      Thanks for the wonderful memory! And from the secret menu: Pack of Kleenex 1€ I even found my pic from 2022.

      Hi, More, on this video, from 12:10 Enjoy. For those who speak French, the dialogues are lovely: "Your sheep make good cheese." "They make good milk, we make the cheese." "Your dog speaks basque?" "No, but it understands it."

      Richard Smith reacted to Dave's post in the thread Looking for a guide - Ruta del Mar with Like Like.
      I think mine is still the only option. And yeah, I wish we could do an update--there just isn't the demand for the Mar yet to justify reprints. But, I have revisited the Mar and posted news here...

      After reading so many impassioned responses one way or the other regarding the Cohelo book and to a far lesser extent the Castaneda books I had a thought. I wonder how much influence each person's experience has been with psychedelic drugs. My...

      Today, at this little village an hour or so away from A Fonsagrada I've experienced an attack from 3 dogs belonging to the farm nearby. One od the dogs tried to bite me by the leg, but that one was wearing a leather strap around "jaws" (like a...

      Cohelo was one of the four references I had before my first (2005) Camino. Others being McLaine, Lee Hoinacki (most useful), and Tim Moore (most funny and skeptical). There wasn't a discoverable forum or youtube in 2005 so resources were limited...
