    Where did you walk ( locally ) in 2019

    I'm getting a bit too old for daily long distance walking! However, I try to walk between 2 and 4 miles [5 kms] each day, locally, in the forest. I love the autumnal colours. Here are two photos I took on a walk last week: Yes - that IS white frost on the ground! And finally an Acer tree...

    Tips on walking less traveled caminos

    I think Laurie has said it all! However, for me, I loved the Camino de l'Ebro: I don't recall meeting any other peregrinos from the Mediterranean coast, to Logrono. But the scenery was beautiful, and the peace had to be experienced. I posted a few pictures: have a look at Pilgrimage V on my web...

    Taking water on the coastal Portuguese Camino

    I agree with scruffy! Walked the Coastal Camino last year with a dear friend, and we had no problems finding water. Just took a 1/2 Litre bottle, and topped it up from time to time. Plenty of small villages to walk through. I'd rate the camino maybe 7/10. Here's a link to the bit we did: Here is...

    Camino Baix Maestrat from Vinaros (Mediterranean)?

    Well, Laurie, as far as I can see at the moment, I will start in Vinaros and the route should be ..... Vinaros 12.3 kms Calig 11.5 kms Cervera 10.8 kms San Mateu 10.4 kms Anroig 7.8 kms Vallivana I may well only walk those distances each day - 6 to 7 miles is fine for...

    When did a Refugio become an Albergue?

    About 5 euros, I think ;)

    On my first camino, I didn't "cheat". Then on my 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th 6th and 7th caminos I thought to myself ... "In medieval times, if a pilgrim was offered a lift on the back of local farmer's cart, would he have said "No!"??? So ever since then I have taken a bus whenever the need arose. So...

    LIVE from the Camino From the Ebro to the Duero and on to Santo Domingo de Silos

    I've enjoyed reading these entries so much: the Ebro was my favourite of all my caminos. Bless each one of you ... and all peregrinos on the route today.

    My ethical dilemma regarding a compostela

    Well, I think this subject has now become silly. If the camino path signs are on the left of the road and I walk on the right, does that mean I can't claim a compostella?!? Nowhere does anything say you have to walk the exact path - indeed, local communities often MOVE the path from time to...

    LIVE from the Camino Unfinished business on the Ebro

    Hi Jeff! I started in Vinaros on the Delta, where the river meets the Mediterranean. Check out Pilgrimage V on my web site https://snicholl5.wixsite.com/home-site/santiago. Buen camino!

    Camino Baix Maestrat from Vinaros (Mediterranean)?

    I've no wish for this particular forum to hibernate! Almost two months since the last entry, so may I ask once more if anyone reading this has actually walked this short camino? My plan now is for a possible walk on it next April. But I would like to hear from anyone who has walked it, and who...
