    Two weeks in March

    I have ~12 days to walk in March. Can someone offer help on where to go? I've been going around in circles researching. Would like: - warmth - variety of scenery - towns - hostals, hotels, pensions (not an alberque type of guy anymore) Any suggestions very much appreciated, Thanks, Eric

    Wise Pilgrim Invierno app

    Hi folks, I purchased the above mentioned app, downloaded it but it won't load. I have a samsung galaxy 9, fairly new, so it shouldn't be my phone. Has anyone had the same experience ? Any ideas how to correct? Thanks Eric

    From Canada, I added a little something to my outdoor fireplace, can you find it? You may have to zoom in a little, and it does point in the right direction :) Eric

    The Corfu Trail

    I know this is not a Camino or Pilgrimage route but I was wondering if any other long distance addicts like myself :) have walked or experienced the Corfu trail. I have a guidebook on order but won't see it until the end of the month. Many thanks and cheers, Eric

    Rota Vicentina

    Hello friends, I was wondering if anyone has walked this trail, Rota Vicentina. It is located in SW Portugal and I think somewhat tied to the Way of St James. I am curious about the trail in general and mainly about accommodations along the trail. Here is the website, looks fantastic...

    Hello, Does anyone have any information on the Jakobsweg trail from Nuremberg to Konstanz. I know there is a guidebook on the CSJ site, I have that on order, but was wondering if there are any other guidebooks, websites, blogs, videos available. Thanks again contributors!

    Other Long Distance Trails

    Hello all, After walking Caminos the last 4 years in Spain, Portugal, France and Italy I continue to seek "fresh ground". Long distance walking is now in my blood, a big part of my life, from the planning, training to hitting the trail. I guess exploration has become my draw now since my...

    Camino Reflection

    It has been 3 years now since I walked the Camino Frances and this morning the Camino entered my thoughts, as it normally does. Over time it has become clear how important the Camino has been in my life, it has been a real milestone. It was a special time to meet "friends" from different...

    Vuelta 2014

    I see the cycle race Vuelta 2014 ends in Santiago de Compostela September 14 and I believe at Obradoiro Square. There will be lots of excitement / activity / confusion in the square that day. Good luck and Buen Camino.

    Camaraderie on the Via Francigena

    I understand the VF is not the Camino Frances in terms of number of walkers but there must be some. How lonely is it on the VF anyway? especially if you converse in only English? I hope to walk from Besconson to either Florence or maybe Rome this Sept / Oct. Thank you for your thoughts. Eric

    Oh no ... another call

    When I finished my 3rd year on the Camino last year I thought I had it out of my system. But during my daily dog walks I find my mind drifting back to the Camino and again starting to long for another walk. Sooo, I surrender but where to go? I think I will try either the Norte Route or the Via...

    Anxious again

    It's back, that anxious feeling. In 2011 I walked the Camino Frances from St Jean PDP, last year I walked the Portuguese route from Oporto. In 7 days I leave for Le Puy en Velay to walk the Via Podiense. Yes, I've become a Camino junkie. Every year at this time I don't sleep very well, waking up...

    Hello all, Can anyone give me approximate percentages of the different types of terrain on the Le Puy to St Jean PDP route? I get a sense that it is less paved than on the Frances. The reason I ask is I will be walking in Sept and I have Merrell Moabs, one pair Gortex (almost worn out but very...

    Random thought

    Don't know where this thought came from but I was just thinking back to the showers in the albergues, remembering how few had hooks to hang a towel, clothes, etc. There is a definite shortage of hooks in the shower stalls, most had none, some had one, luxury to have 2. I'm thinking I may bring a...
