    @VNwalking, I am also impressed with you walking so far on your porch! I would say that you have clearly mastered the art of meditative walking, to be able to walk as far as you do in this manner! Many years ago, with the assistance of all...

    There is only one first time, first kiss, first blush,first time down the road...I've been thinking along of what your saying lately. And came to my personal conclusion..that is if I build the experience up so big, so wide,so...all encompassing...

    I would prepare one’s kit for the least comfortable, least user friendly conditions. Some Albergues have modern “spacious” accommodations for showering, changing, hanging clothes, bench to sit on, shelves for toiletries etc.. In my limited...

    Sorry but I find it extremely inappropiate washing your clothes in the shower. There are designated ( outside ) washbassins just for that. Please take into consideration that hot water in an albergue is a precious thing so keep your...

    Zman - I enjoyed reading that list. You invited responses so here are mine. 3. Much of the Camino is steep ascent and descent, as well as being on uneven surfaces. If one is going to walk-train carrying a pack (I didn't) then if you live in a...
