    Pre-Camino Travel Ideas

    Be sure to notice the beautiful train station in Toledo before just running through to get outside! It’s absolutely gorgeous and would be a lovely sketch!

    Best earplugs

    I’ve slept with a loud snorer for forty years. Go to an audiologist (doctor for hearing aids) and get fitted for custom made earplugs. They aren’t cheap. I paid USD140, but they are wonderful. When I walk the Camino I sleep with a tiny net bag tied to a ribbon around my neck so that the moment I...

    Roncesvalles Albergue

    I’ve stayed at Roncesvalles twice and eaten at both places for dinner and both were good. I prefer Casa Sabina for the whole trout , eyes and all. Delicious! Good comraderi too! Skip breakfast there and stop at the first place you pass to eat. (Less than an hour). Wonderful meals! Buen Camino!

    Camino question

    On both my caminos I found the China stores (those dollar type stores run by Chinese people) in the slightly larger villages were always happy to take my large bills even with a very small purchase. One manager said to me... no problem, we have lots of money. Then she gave a big bright smile!

    Too ambitious?

    I’m 71 and just finished my second Camino Frances this year. I carried my 18 pound pack all the way, but I stop for café con leche in almost every village. It’s my reward. I averaged about 20 km per day after the first week. Just take care of your feet and drink lots of water. Good for you for...

    Live - Camino Francés One week in.. Logrono

    Darn. We are in Logroño tonight too but at Albergue Logroño. It’s nice and close to Laurel street for tapas but wish I’d checked out Winederful! Maybe I’ll see you in Nájera!

    Pre Trip Anxiety

    I am 70 and beginning March 30 on the Frances. My friends and I walked it in 2017 in Apr/May. Perfect weather. Very little rain, cool mornings and beautiful scenery- yellow fields and red poppies! Whatever this year’s weather brings, I know it will be wonderful. We plan on taking it slowly so...

    Visited in 2017. It was a great place to wait for our bus after checking out of the hotel!

    Sending some luggage to Santiago

    What is the Land of Oz?

    Thanks for all the great ideas! I think I’ll let it just go crazy with a tiny scarf and/or my buff if I don’t need it around my neck. I think I’m going to keep my hair a little longer instead of shorter and too manly. I am six feet tall wearing pilgrim clothes but I would still like to look...

    Wow! I loved my buff before but this is great! Thank you!

    I actually look pretty okay with blow dry and makeup but not willing to carry that. Lol. I love the Camino and am starting the Frances for the second time of March 27 in SJPDP! Sending love to the forum peeps!

    Oh no. How did it get there 3 times. Sorry.

    Here’s my hair with a headband. I was just wondering if anyone had a way to tame it without a blow dryer.
