      sunrise5am replied to the thread Albergue Etiquette.
      As a snorer, I would suggest you take earplugs, or stay well clear of dorm accommodation. Repeatedly shaking me awake in the night doesn't change my snoring habit, as was tried on my last Camino. I take spare earplugs so in extremis I can give...

      My favourite was turning left off the Camino (Somport variant) between Borse and Urdos, and going up the Chemin de la mature. It's a truly amazing path, literally hacked out of a 200m+ sheer cliff face (la ravine d'enfer). Depending on whose...

      The entire route of the Camino de Santiago on Gran Canaria. Short but very impressive. Starts at sea level, rises up through steep rocky mountains to 1800m, then back down through forest and open hillsides to sea level again in less than 80km...

      As far as my Garmin shows. its about 2km out of Salamanca. Then it's a small path alongside the N-630 in the Gras and alongside a bike-route. You can check on google maps with satellite view. After 6km it's mostly on dusty farm roads.

      Does Salamanca to Cuba del Vino (stage 20) involve 20km on tarmac, on the N-630? Or does the Camino run as a separate track, alongside (not on!) the asphalted road, and this more comfortable for the feet?

      A lot of the infrastructure and economic advancement has been, and continues to be, paid for by taxpayers in Northern Europe via transfers from the EU. For example under the Recovery Plan Spain's received over €30bn, and will get €10bn more...

      sunrise5am replied to the thread Backpack size.
      Decide what you want to take, how heavy you want it to be, and go from there. It all depends on you. As for me: Normally I'd take a 33l Osprey for winter trekking in mountains, so more than adequate for a Camino (for me). It also fits most...

      sunrise5am replied to the thread Bed race on the VDLP….
      That's very useful information. Many thanks. I think I'll get the Alpkit Hunka (360g), silk liner (126g) and a suspendable mosquito net (90g, just needs the head end tied up to an object or draped over a rucksack placed by your head so the mesh...
