    Via de Plata in October

    I just did the same. Also on Gronze, etapa 13, I found there was an albergue in Embalse del Ancantara, 600 m off the camino, E25.

    The future of Camino Hospitality

    I hope that you are a prophet. Many can see Camino being in trouble, some say - just changing; yet you said it so perfectly (and timely, with Easter upon us) - after all these troubles, Camino will rise up to what it really is meant to be, a spiritual journey.

    Is July too hot for Camino Via de Plata?

    Quick response, because my brain has shut down. I´m sitting in Zamora as a hospitalera right now, it's midnight and 32 degrees. It´s too hot to do anything, never mind walking. We have very few pilgrims walking through, some cyclists. All of them start with "mucho calor", even Spaniards born and...

    @dduroy OK, it just looked on a picture like a clear plastic film under your Tattoo. How long did it take to do?

    Live - Camino Francés Bad experience Logrono

    NOT that it was a good reaction... but his side of a story could be: I'm at the end of my shift; after 15 days of dealing with all sorts of pilgrims (and he went through hundreds of them!) - I AM SO TIRED! and here is another one, violating the basic rule in every albergue! (I'm writing this...

    Albergue San Anton Now Closed?

    It would be more than sad for some special people! I stayed there 2 years ago. On top of a wonderful meal, prayers, singing under the full moon, there was a story there of the 2 Spanish hospitaleros, who met on the Camino year before, and in July 2011 were getting married in ... San Anton! (I...

    How many km a day at the Meseta ?

    After the last summer's experience (25km/day) you will find no trouble walking 30-35 or even more per day. I would not recommend more than 40 though, even if you are able to do it; it takes a long time afterwards to recover.(My longest day, only because there was no room at the alberque, was 47...
