    Transportation from O Cebreiro

    Can anyone tell me how to get from O Cebreiro back to Leon? Not now. In a few months after things settle down. I am just doing some pre-planning. I need to catch a train in Leon in order to get back to Madrid. I am assuming that there is a bus route but I have not been able to locate the...

    Did you ever fall down because you were not looking where your feet were going? That would be my problem.

    Harassment on the way to Fátima

    I bet that if he got punched in the nose a few times this behavior would come to a halt.

    Should I pack my kindle?

    I have walked the Camino Frances several times and I always found time to read using eBooks loaded onto my iPhone using the Kindle app. No superfluous second device.

    Jesus and the Money Lenders

    The Spanish economy is in serious trouble. I am in favor of the people working to earn money from the tourist trade in order to support themselves and to pay for maintenance of the trails which take a terrible beating from the peregrinos. Be generous to local people while you are a guest in...

    Stress with finding accommodation

    I plan ahead using Booking.com so that I know where I’ll be staying every night. If I get tired before reaching my destination, I catch a cab. No muss. No fuss.

    Walking a Camino is a Very Selfish Act - Isn't it?

    Time for the SELF is not a bad thing. Remember that you cannot take care of others until you take care of yourself first. Even airline strwards tell us to put on our own oxygen mask FIRST before helping another! So go for it and stop feeling guilty for taking care of yourself.

    What would you do?

    No contest: definitely Queenstown NZ. And while on the South Island, make a side trip to Milford Sound, the Eighth Wonder of the Natural World!

    Baggage transfer

    CaminoFacil has transferred my baggage on my last three caminos without once screwing up. I heartily recommend them.

    Reading while on the Camino

    Yes! My iPad (ereader) goes everywhere with me. I didn’t get a lot of reading done but it was a comfort having it with me. I had my luggage forwarded by Camino Facil so the extra weight was of no concern in my day pack.
