    How much should your donation be ?

    A bunk in a private albergue costs about €12 now. A meal costs about the same. So, if I found accommodation that provided an evening meal and a bed I'd donate €30.

    There's a sand dune on one of the stages of the Camino do faros.

    New peril on the Pisuerga River?

    Don't be taking the opportunity to cool your feet in this river until this mystery is cleared up. Witnesses, including a police officer, have reported sightings of a crocodile .

    COVID Plans to start Camino in 2020 after Spain re-opens

    She's the first pilgrim I've seen in more than 5 months. I asked if I could take her photograph and she agreed. I posted it on my FB page and it prompted a question from someone about the chances of a September Camino. Anybody any thoughts ? I don't know.

    COVID A return to a more basic camino?

    One albergue in Muxia has already closed. I fear a lot more will go the same way.

    I'm still walking a bit of the Muxia Camino

    I went in mid January to house/cat sit. The lady who owns the house had an accident, broke a bone in her foot, and I was happy to stay on until she recovered. Not stuck exactly.

    I'm still walking a bit of the Muxia Camino

    I will stay here to early June and then go back to Belfast to see how dusty and neglected my house is after 5 months away. No plans after that except to wait for the Caminos to open again.

    I'm still walking a bit of the Muxia Camino

    I'm staying in a house in Muxia which is about 2km from the Camino. I walk those 2km and then about 1km on the Camino for my daily exercise. I haven't seen another walker for weeks.

    Fisterra and the mystique of death

    If you had your ashes scattered on the trail going down into Roncesvalles tiny bits of you, well atoms, would be making towards Santiago on the boots of pilgrims for as long as there were pilgrims.
