    Thanks for that. Makes sense - and actually, as of today, my plans have now significantly changed and I will no longer be commencing the VdlP this autumn - I've switched it to Feb/Mar instead. I have had a yearning to return to Nepal for the past 2 years and now, UK have finally removed Nepal...

    Random question - but might while away an hour of your lives, as it has mine! Does anyone know how to add a new camino to your profile? I've gone into the profile page, where my caminos are listed, but it just won't let me add a new one (VdlP 2021 obvs!) All the other details seem ok to edit...

    A walk in mid October

    I walked part of the Portuguese Coastal route in reverse in Oct/Nov last year (I had done the interior route going up and just wanted to walk some of the Coastal back from Valenca to Porto). I was completely alone for the early part (Lisbon to Tomar) but found company after that but did feel...

    Mmm re: weather, I checked accuweather and when I hit Salamanca on 7th Nov it's predicting 17c and in Ourense where I hope to be by 19th Nov it's down to around 14c. So not cold, but def cooling down as I head Northward! But perfect walking temps for me. Obs also predicting rain in Galicia...

    Did you phone to make a reservation? I can't find an e-mail address for them....

    Did you stay in Albergue Luz del Camino?

    Wow - still 30c! I set off on 18th. It'll be an odd one to work out clothes wise as going from very warm to potentially very cold by the time I hit Galicia in November - but it's all about the layers I guess. Buen Camino and keep the posts coming!

    LIVE from the Camino Sevilla first step to Santiago October 14 -lt56ny

    Whoo hoo! I will be 4 days behind you - setting off on 18/10. I'll def be looking out for your posts as you go along re: open/closed albergues etc. I'm planing on 37 walking days and one rest day in Salamanca - so a few long days along the way - but can't wait!

    Albergues yet open on the Via de la Plata/Camino Sanabrés

    Thanks for the info. I'm def going to call 1-2 days ahead as there is nothing more demoralising than finding you have to keep walking when you were looking forward to an end of the day beer!!

    Albergues yet open on the Via de la Plata/Camino Sanabrés

    I would prefer slightly shorter stages but due to us Brits having to adhere to the 90 day visa requirement (and I will have spent 7 weeks in Europe already this summer) I only have 40 days to spare - so opting for longer stages and 2 rest days and a final free day in Santiago. I'll look out for...

    Albergues Via de la plata Sept 18, 2021

    This is really helpful. Thanks.

    Albergues yet open on the Via de la Plata/Camino Sanabrés

    Hi - I'm also starting the VdlP on 18th Oct. I'm pretty much following the Gronze stages and thinking of taking 2 rest days along the way - maybe Salamanca and Ourense? Any other recommendations for rest days welcome! I'm not planning to bring a tent and will try and use albergues where...

    COVID I received my Corona "passport" today:

    Oh - update - found it! Thanks for flagging up as I had no idea it was on there! NB: it says it automatically updates every 28 days, so doesn't expire.

    I am also UK and have the NHS ap - but it doesn't give me a QR code? I can just check/view my vaccine record - can I ask where on the ap you found your QR code?
