    Support for addicts walking the Camino?

    My husband is a recovered alcoholic. He hadn’t had a drink in decades. He simply declined wine. I did enjoy the wine. No one ever pressured him to drink. A simple ‘no thank you’ should be enough. But if someone continues to encourage alcohol, you could say a strong ‘No thank you!’ If...

    Changing shoes as well as socks?

    I’ve been a Camino addict since before I walked in 2016. A knee surgery in 2017 and a cross country move after that has kept me away. Now it’s a very old but sweet little dog. My husband said he can’t leave her. I understand and totally agree. But I may still walk in August/September this year.

    Changing shoes as well as socks?

    It looks like you caught the Camino bug. I was 60 and recently retired when I first walked the Camino in 2016. I leaned a lot about what to do and what not to do. I made some wonderful friends. I may walk again in August/September. Buen Camino!

    Changing shoes as well as socks?

    I sent my pack forward too. I wore my hiking boots and carried a pair of Chacos to change into after walking about 10k. My feet started to ache in the boots. I wore Chacos with socks too. I just ties the boot laces and threw them over my shoulder. (In hindsight, I think I needed an arch...

    Wool socks

    I can’t wear wool at all. At REI, I found Darn Tough CoolMax hiking socks. They were perfect for me and were most comfortable on the Camino

    What do you do when you're not walking?

    When I’m not dreaming about the Camino, reading about the Camino, or planning my next Camino, I make pottery, clean up at the clay studio,walk, cook, and hang out with my hubby. I’m a camino addict. I started making the Camino mugs as I was recovering from knee surgery. I feel a strong...

    Bathroom in October camino

    I have an overactive bladder. I would find a bush or something to squat behind. Once there were a few people around. So, I walked quickly ahead and slipped a couple of feet off the Way to relieve myself. As I was adjusting my clothes, I was met with a couple of grins. I also wore a macabi...

    Has anyone had a haircut on the Camino?

    My husband got a haircut before the Camino. He didn’t bother trying to get one during our walk. He was pretty wooly when we got home.

    Starting a Camino with mild plantar fasciitis - crazy or not?

    I had a serious case of Plantar frasciitis last year. I could walk 1/4 mike and not be able to walk without a limo for 3 days. It was awful. I tried several types of therapy including rolling a ball beneath my foot, massaging it with arnica, stretches, etc. What worked for me was 6 weekly...
