    Opinions back home

    If you're young, you're not going to be alone...and that's not to say that older people don't form groups, but I can't speak on their behalf. As a younger person, I went on the Camino to 'walk alone' and from day one I found myself travelling with different people, almost the entire way. On top...

    Live from Camino Life begins (again) at 65

    I hope you and Kerry have a great Camino Anna! I'm setting out on the 5th of September myself. I doubt I'll set a blistering pace but if you two aren't in any hurry and you linger longer in certain spots I might meet you! I'll have a Forum patch on my backpack, so keep an eye out and say hello...

    Why should you Over-Night before SJPdP

    Hi Mary - thank you for taking the time to reply so comprehensively. Very helpful. I am actually over-nighting in Seoul, and I was going to book a nice hotel. I'm going to have a nice Korean BBQ dinner and then spend a bit of time in the morning seeing a couple of sights before heading back to...

    Walk with me...

    Jenine, It sounds like I might be right on your heels. I begin my Camino from SJPdP on the 5th of September. Buen Camino! Scott

    First Aid Kit - Basic items to take?

    I've put them in my First Aid kit and it weights less than 100grams and takes up less space than my John Brierley guide so I think they'll stay!

    First Aid Kit - Basic items to take?

    I think I'm going to stick with Moleskin for the time being because I have gone for many a long walk with my boots already and I haven't had even an inkling of a hot spot coming on. If I do, I'll head straight to the nearest pharmacy and follow your above advice!

    First Aid Kit - Basic items to take?

    Thank you to everyone who has replied - I have reviewed my list and I'm going to drop it down to 10 items - removing the alcohol cleansing wipes and the antiseptic cream. La Brique: I have done first aid and combat first aid courses and as my instructors have told me - latex gloves aren't...

    First Aid Kit - Basic items to take?

    Howdy folks! I just wanted to run through my list of 12 items that I will be packing into a small First Aid Kit which I will be taking with me on the Camino Frances in September 2018. I understand that there are many pharmacies along the way and that keeping things light is a priority, but I...

    Your childhood heroes and your Camino life now ...

    A couple of heroes of mine once did a long walk to throw a ring into a volcano. I think their names were Frodo and Sam, but I could be mistaken. Truthfully though, I have always loved the idea of walking until I didn't want to anymore, then laying up somewhere simple and just enjoying basic...

    Why should you Over-Night before SJPdP

    Thanks Thornley - I would definitely follow your advice regarding Bayonne if I had never been to Paris, but I have friends to visit there, and I would also be castrated by my friends and family if I flew all the way to Paris and didn't even climb the Eiffel Tower or use a funny snapchat filter...

    Why should you Over-Night before SJPdP

    I was planning on spending two nights in Pamplona as I've always wanted to visit that city, plus it's after three days of walking so I'm probably going to need the break as I adjust to it all! I also don't plan on doing a great deal in Paris, but I have to get back to work eventually and I don't...

    Why should you Over-Night before SJPdP

    Thanks Kelleymac - I've never been to Paris though so I wanted to take a little bit of it in. I also have friends in Paris I can stay with so apart from possible ticket costs and some food, I won't be spending any money on accommodation. If I left Paris, the money I would save by not spending...

    Why should you Over-Night before SJPdP

    Apologies - I'll be coming from Australia; a small island nation plopped somewhere in the Pacific Ocean where travelling on foot is never an option (what with all the wildlife). Fingers crossed you're right!
