    COVID Not sure what to say?

    Hello everyone! It's been a few days since I've been on the forum. The last time I was here I was letting everyone know how great it was on the Camino! We were in Astorga 6 days ago.

    COVID COVID-19: Current Camino Conditions

    I am sitting in The Elvis Bar in Reliegos. There's 4 of us total in the municipal albergue. Besides the lack of some Pilgrims there is pretty much no talk of the virus. Everything is normal.

    Money saving tip...

    I started with the Hop, Skip and Jump technique over the Pyrenees. I went full cartwheel from Pamplona. My shoes held up great! I did go through 37 pairs of gloves, though. Buen Camino!

    RONCESVALLES first floor accommodation

    Not sure if you're American, but, the first floor in Europe is the 2nd floor to Americans. What we consider the first floor is the reception/checking in area. When I checked I was told my bunk was on the 1st floor and she pointed up. I looked at her like she had 3 heads and she explained the...
