    Less than 8 months now until we take our first steps from Le Puy. May have to start packing soon. Cant find any English Language Guide books but it seems Le Puy to SJPDP is not difficult just using the signs / shells, a list of Gites (found on a Pilgrim Facebook post) and general advice found...

    How many Km/day?

    The guidebook is just that. Only be guided by it. Don't let it rule our experience. I suggest you do what you want each day. My wife and I tried to follow the guidebook but after 7 days made the decision to reduce our daily k's each day to about 15 to 20. This immediately improved our aches...

    Deuter Back Packs

    I guess everyone needs to find their own preference. We have walked in many countries and thousands of kilometres including the CF in 2009 with our Deuter 32 as described with the ventilation gap and can't speak highly enough. We will be using them again in 2014 as well. As many have said in...

    Anyone training for the Camino in Melbourne?

    Watch out for snakes on that Kilcunda walk. It's great but lots of long grass I recall. Especially this time of year. Have a great time on the island. Ian
