How does one start a "thread"? or start a conversation? Haven't figured it out yet ... chaos here at the house ... both, literally and figuratively ... am cleaning up ... getting rid of old furniture, empty boxes, expired meds, etc, etc
there is another question I've been somewhat embarrassed to ask ... what about bathrooms along the Camino? how ... frequent ... are they? are there "porta-potties" every few Km? i have a weird metabolism ... I also eat quite a bit during physical activities (such as hiking) ...
Hello? I've been meaning to ask also ... regarding personal cooking on the El Camino Frances, is this frowned upon? I mean "by the roadside" cooking ... What about preparing a coffee by the roadside? am I going to get into trouble if I do that? Haven't seen anyone do that on the youtube videos.
Read your book recently. It was left in our hostel a few weeks ago. It was actually a library book from California, which puzzled me, because the only two Americans we had that night were from Texas and Oklahoma. But I had no way to contact either of them, so I gave it to an American librarian who said she would try to return it through via the inter-library loan network.
AND by the way...
Think about another book, please, just purely fun with lots and lots of stories and anecdotes. May not sell as well, but easy to write and self publish for your fans. Count me as one of them!
Got your book and really enjoyed it. Thanks. (I'll pass on the iodine and syringe situation and wear good socks and trail hiking shoes well broken in, thank you. Maybe your intent was to scare us out of getting a blister... It worked.) Thanks!
Hi SYates I love hearing of your experiences on the Camino.I have felt a rising impulse to walk a winter Camino Frances,I'm attracted to its seclusion and quiet.I was interested in your posts documenting your recent winter Camino.However i could only find posts of the first half of your walk? Did you get to Santiago?
I was also wondering if you could give me advice re:weather, pack,open albergues,etc? Thanks :)
Hi currently walking the Camino and your updates have been a massive help! But I'm in Fromista and have reached the end. Do you have any additional postings about what is beyond from here. Thanks so much and hope you are enjoying your Camino!
I've just discovered you on this forum. Your book was the first one I read on the Camino. It was so useful. I'm following your advice (even bought the boots you recommend) and am really grateful for it. Thank you so much.
Being me, sort of lazy, not to well trained, afraid of getting robbed...I am eager of walking a camino, maybe in september october: Is it a good idea to try "Caminho Portugues de la Costa"?
(But no albuerges for me, after walking a whole day I want a quiet hotel, also beacause my terrible snoring, a documented problem...)
Do I have a negative attitude?
Not quite sure how to send you a pm… But just want to say it's great that you know Jose Ignacio!! Such a colourful character… and really lovely: he sent me a wonderful Christmas message, 6 months after I'd last seen him - how does he find the time?? Btw, did you also do a stint in Logrono?
About E Peace Walk...saw this blog http://uwc.org/about_uwc/news/european_peace_walk_2014.aspx
I am interested, too. But I somewhat hesitant about weather. I really don't like to walk long distances with temperature over 25 C. And it seems that even the last allowed departure dates (25tg August) will be quite hot. But the plan is tempting, really...
I have mistakenly called you Sylvia, I think :) Just last night in APOC, someone said that they had your book and Brierly's, and I mentioned I had both too, and someone else did. I appreciate you so much. Just wanted to send some love your way.
SYates. Thanks for all of the passion and help you are so quick to dole out. I really enjoy reading your posts! My wife are planning to depart from St. Jean on June the 17th. Here is a link to our blog as we prepare. http://lbarrettscamino.weebly.com/blog
