The big map o the Caminos de Santiago

  • Planning Caminos--but trying (so) hard to focus on the "present" is a tightwire. Sometimes we MUST have something to look forward to, depending on personal circumstances. Keep your eyes on those cheap flights! I'd love to know who YOU book through. Friends have used e-dreams or kayak. How about you? I'm kind of a scaredy cat and use expedia :)
    You have a birthday coming up on the very day I will be flying to Paris! I just had my September birthday yesterday :)
    Another Oregonian! And a Camino veteran. We are planning a VDLP walk and any insights for walking in Spain you could share would be greatly appreciated.
    Sorry for my delay in answering you. I rarely look at my profile page, so I didn't notice your post. Anything in particular you want to know? When are you planning to walk?
    Hi Trecile

    I read your post about taking Spanish at IH Barcelona. This fall I'm planning to do my second Camino and would like to learn more Spanish beforehand; I would really appreciate any additional information you could provide.
    Sorry for my delay in answering you. I rarely look at my profile page, so I didn't notice your post. I chose IH Barcelona because I'd always wanted to visit Barcelona, and they have a special program for "older adults" that was great for me. There are many other schools in Spain, so it would depend on where you want to take lessons.
    Thanks, trecile, for the umbrella info. Haven't seen anyone who's using it, When I was on the trail. I sweat with hat on , so first thing I sed is my hat. Seen the web site and interesting, will see. CathyK.
    Hi. Awesome that you walked in a merino wool dress. I am a big fan of hiking in skirts. What did you do on the Camino when it was raining?
    Sorry for my delay in answering you. I rarely look at my profile page, so I didn't notice your post. When it rained - which didn't happen much I used my "parcho" - homemade poncho with sleeves, and umbrella.
    I came home at the beginning of June and I so want to go back. Northern Way for me next September. I know how you feel, Its quite normal, most of my Camino family feel the same.
    Hi Trecile I'll be walking el Camino de Invierno from 20/10 till 4/11.
    Are you still walking? Do you know this part?
    Thank yOu, Roberto
    you seem full of positive energy. Buen Camino. May the light be your guide and the Holy Spirit show you The Way. Caesar
    Hi Trecile. Buen Camino. I'll be doing my 5 th Camino Frances this September. By the way, FREESPIRIT mentioned about booking albergues. This can only be done with the private ones. The public albergues, which are much cheaper and where you will find the true Camino spirit function on a first come, first serve basis.
    Hi trecile the Camino has been on my mind this last few weeks ,so I will be going back this year, I cannot wait till 2017,I have caught the Camino Bug,
    to all fellow Pilgrims out there, may see you on the road.
    Hi Trecile good luck on your first Camino,I am going back in 2019 for a third time if all goes well,try and keep the back pac weight down to 10 kg or less,and try to book in advance for Albergues if you can,
    as there will be plenty of pilgrims this year ,as its a year of mercy on the Camino, Buen camino,its a life changing trip,,
