    Starting a new Camino with an old credencial?

    Walked the Camino Aragones last year and am doing Salvador and Primitivo this year (leaving for Leon tomorrow!). I will get the special Salvador credencial in Leon but I am wondering if I can use last year's credencial from the C Aragones (which has only been stamped about eight times) for the...

    Availability of Accommodation

    Could you expand on this, Laurie? Did people end up sleeping outdoors? Would I be mad walking the Primitivo late July/early August?

    Extrapolating from the summer stats...

    How do the official stats above incorporate pilgrims who start on the Camino del Norte (Irun, Santander etc) but switch to the Camino Primitivo in Asturias? I have the feeling they are included in the overall figure for CN rather than CP as the totals for people starting in towns on the CP...

    Which Football team

    Compostela got promoted today winning 2-0 in Cieza (4-0 agg). Next season they will play in 2B against such teams as Ourense and Oviedo.

    Which Football team

    Re: Which Soccer team I opened a thread on football on the camino last year and it died a death. This was my contribution I'm a big football fan and on both my caminos kept my eyes out for any game I might be able to attend. Made games at Celta Vigo and Deportivo La Coruña after reaching...

    Albergue news on the Vdlp

    I stayed there in 2011, a little off the main drag just past the morgue If I remember. I was the first to arrive and had to ring for someone to come and open up, some young fellah arrived soon after and let me in and then later on after it had filled up a little, someone came back to collect...

    What time to leave SJPP

    Wait until after lunch, it's only a few hours' walk and you will have nothing to do once you arrive in Orisson.

    No more renfe discount tickets?

    No, Renfe haven't stopped offering cheap webfares from 62 days before departure, however they don't seem to come up on the Santiago-Madrid connection.

    Anyone stayed in Gite "Kayola" before Orisson?

    €32 includes the evening meal, doesn't it? (Still not cheap by camino standards, I agree)

    Some reflections on the Vdlp/Mozarabe

    I too am enjoying reading these "on the road" postings of a camino I hope to walk in August/September (from Salamanca). A little disappointed to read about large numbers though perhaps there will be fewer come August. A question about Salamanca that is definitely not worth opening a new thread...

    There is a daily flight from Burgos to Barcelona, operated by Air Nostrum/Iberia. Not cheap though.
