    Post-Camino Lessons: a recording

    Dear Northern Laurie, thank you for your intimate, moving, poetic, and philosophical post-Camino reflection. Your experience in the Church in Guernica brings to mind Picasso's black and white painting entitled "Guernica" - one of the very few black and white works of his, and for a good reason.

    Camino del CID

    Thank you VNwalking for your helpful suggestions. In less than a month I will be there. The absence of signposting is making me nervous, but I feel very encouraged learning from pioneers like you, Peregrina2000, Reb, alexwalker, alansykes, and others who may have walked that route. Thank you all.

    Downloading Maps

    I am not tech savy, so please help me how to download the app, and the map of the area from Santo Domingo de Silos to Burgos. Also, how can I get the right .kmz file and load it into the app? Thank you so much.

    Camino del CID

    Many thanks to all of you. Besides Santo Domingo de Silos, I intend to spend a night in each of the following places: Covarrubias, Mambrills de Lara, Revilla de Campo, and Modubar de San Ciprian. Any suggestions for private accommodation in these places would be much appreciated. Thank you.

    Camino del CID

    I am planning to walk from Santo Domingo de Silos to BURGOS. Will I encounter problems with the trail signs? My understanding is that the trail goes from north to south with signposting in this direction, the opposite of my proposed camino.

    Pimientos myth?

    But how do you plant the Padron peppers? Importing their seeds to the USA may not be allowed. Thanks.

    I love this time of year!

    Most timely posting, Viranani. In September I did the Via de la Plata from Ourense (to honor my 80th birthday). Last year I did the Camino Ingles from Ferrol. The year before it was the Camino Portuguese, inland. Now I keep dreaming about where to go next September or October. I'd welcome...

    Stops between Ourense & Santiago

    I have just returned from that Camino. The last section on day 5, from Ponte Ulla to Santiago, is more like 28 km, not 16 km mentioned by Donna. Buen Camino.

    Has Anyone Walked the Camino Inglés in October?

    I walked it last October and it was lovely - the forests, the hills (very steep in parts), the unforgettable quietness. It did rain for 3 days as I approached Santiago. Not too many pilgrims, though, which made it that much nicer. You will love it. Take it slow and easy, and stop frequently...

    What is your 'Dream Camino,' and why?

    SYates, please could you provide more details about the "Ecumenical Pilgrim Way" in Germany: where does it start, where does it end, and how do I get more information? Thanks.
