    Walking now

    I walked up to Astorga after Granja de Moruela in 2017. Stayed in Benavente,Alija and La Baneza. After La Baneza I walked to Astorga. As I remember there where albergues in all the places I I slept in. The Albergue in Alija was very nice.Met no other pilgrims. The camino was well marked.

    Shifting from Garmin GPS to phone — step 1

    The app Windy maps with offline maps is very good. Always use it in Sweden and in Spain on different caminos. :)

    COVID Helping cafes, bars, albergues and Camino businesses during COVID shutdown

    I have walked different caminos since year 2000 when I walked camino frances with my son 14 years old. Lifechanging for the both of us. At the moment the Covid-19 makes all the caminos bleed. No peregrinos, no albergues, no money in for the people making it possible for us peregrinos all over...

    Spanish language

    Done it 3 times and met 4 other pilgrims all together. The day from Cercedilla over the mountains is a big favorite. Buen Camino .

    Was this cheating?

    I got an idea out of this conversation. I can make a pilgrimage with no walking just taxi. Expensive but I do not have to think about socks,shoes,blisters,aching knees, sweating and many more things. Wow :) Ps Does anyone know the cost for taxi from Sevilla to Santiago Ds

    For me too. The feeling when you see Segovia in the distance after a lot of walking over the mountain.
