    Camino Angels

    My Camino Angels came on my first day on the Camino. I started in Pamplona with the intention of stopping in Cezor Menor. But I got there and it was only 11:30 and I figured I could do the 6.6 to Ziraquegui with no problem. I didn't figure in the almost constant uphill slog the whole way. I was...

    Signs that your Camino is close

    Waxing might be futile but it lasts longer than shaving. I might have to get them done again along the way but at least I won't have to take time in the shower shaving every other day.

    Signs that your Camino is close

    I'm also getting my hair cut really short. It is short already so shorter is the only way to go. Just 28 more days.

    Signs that your Camino is close

    Kanga, I'm doing that 2 days before I leave. I'd do it the day before but the wax place isn't open on Sundays.

    Restaurant Suggestions for Barcelona Please

    At after 11 at night I'm not sure if anything is going to be open. Seems the couple restaurants near my hotel that I've looked at online close at midnight. I might just have to pack something like cup of soup and some tea bags and hope I can find a way to heat up water. Or pickup something in...

    Restaurant Suggestions for Barcelona Please

    Thank you for that suggestion but I don't eat fast food especially MacDonalds. I think a bowl of soup or a sandwich would be what I'm looking for. Or even a cup of tea and a pastry. I have a very long layover in Dublin so I will try and get my main meal of the day in there.

    Restaurant Suggestions for Barcelona Please

    My flight from the U.S. via Dublin doesn't arrive until almost 10 pm (2200). By the time I get to my hotel I will have been traveling for over 24 hours and won't be good for much. I need suggestions for a restaurant or cafe near my hotel where I can get a light bite to eat before going to bed. I...

    Carry On Luggage Bad News for Flyers

    While I know there's a risk of bags getting lost or misdirected if they are checked, I really dislike carrying/rolling/toting luggage around an airport. So I'm going to trust in the Camino Gods and check my backpack. I just carry my little day pack with my traveling gear in it and my money belt.

    Paris or Barcelona?

    Ok, I booked my tickets. I'm flying into Barcelona. I won't get in until late evening on September 16. I'm thinking of staying that night and the next in Barcelona and then heading by bus or/and train to Pamplona and on to Roncevalles on September 18. Thank you all for all the help.

    update on the tarjeta dorada (senior card)

    Is there any way to get a Tarjeta Dorada while still at home in the U.S.? I would like to book my tickets ahead and use the discount if possible. I know this is an older thread but it is what came up when I did a search.
