    Women over 60 who DON'T take a sleeping bag...

    I didn’t take a sleeping bag last year on the Norte & Primitivo (June-July) and regretted it. I found myself booking private albergues as I was cold and knew that they would have blankets. The Municipal albergues in Galicia don’t have blankets.

    Epicamino has come to an end - fellow pilgrim and forum member David passed away

    So very sad to hear of David’s passing. I felt as though I knew him through his posts and now feel like I have lost a true friend. RIP.

    Newbie in Need!

    I left the Norte for the Primitivo 10 days ago (11th July). Because the towns are summer tourist spots beds could be very hard to come by and, in some places, booking ahead was necessary. I didn’t enjoy that & am loving the Primitivo which is much more relaxed and ‘camino like’.

    I’ll check this out tonight. I’m off to do the TMB in August after warming up on the Norte. Very timely. Thank you, Hank.

    Long Haul Flights - How Far Ahead Do You Book?

    Hi Robo, coming from Australia hurts. Both in terms of money & jetlag! It usually costs me about $1350 - $1550 Aussie dollars return. I like to book about 8 months in advance (I love the anticipation of a Camino) and go with whichever airline has the best deal that suits at the time. By the time...

    Good luck. Let us know if you succeeded. I’d like to know how busy that albergue is. Buen Camino.

    Hearing aid found

    My husband has worn two hearing aids for years. I read Andy’s comment out to him and he cracked up laughing. It is a joke he often uses.

    Probably not busy but hot, hot, hot! Buen Camino.

    San Juan - your best experiences

    I only just found out about this festival this morning. I will start the Norte in Irun on that date & was wondering why I was having so much trouble finding an affordable bed in San Sebastián. I want to book that first night as I know that it will be a tough first day. So happy that I have a bed...

    LIVE from the Camino Boots mix up! Help needed

    Oh Rachel, I feel for you. This happened to my husband’s boots in Tui on the Portuguese Camino. Thankfully he was reunited with them at the end of the day. I hope you are as lucky.

    Advice re my packing for June Frances from Leon? Esp. from ladies! ta :-)

    Holhum, a hint from one Aussie to another: tape your charger plug to the adaptor -it’s very easy to unplug it and leave the adaptor still plugged in the wall. Something I did somewhere on the Via de la Plata. Not good.

    Andy, fill in the details yourself and get your first stamp at either the albergue in Pamplona or the Cathedral. Buen Camino.
