  1. LTfit

    German Peregrino on the Camino already.

    Legally speaking it is only during Phase 2 that he is allowed to walk all around Castilla y Leon but certainly NOT outside the region. And anyway all of Castilla y Leon is still in Phase 1 so I guess he feels he is an exception to the rule:rolleyes:

    Albergues in the time of covid

    In light of this possibility, "established" groups will most likely form. I personally know that if 4 pilgrims came to my albergue and said that they were walking together I would not hesitate to put them in a room with 2 bunkbeds. Who am I to question when the group was formed? I don't want to...

    Albergues in the time of covid

    Thanks @caminka I haven't thought about the cotton bag option. I guess I will just have to wait and see how strick they are. I was originally thinking of packing them separately in paper which I could recycle but the cotton bag open sounds much beter. I have some old sheets I could use. Now I...

    Albergues in the time of covid

    There is no rule that says that dorms have "to be booked/used in their entirety". This is just an option that some have decided to use.

    Albergues in the time of covid

    Thanks again Faith. Regarding the quarantine issue I have read that an albergue does not have to close and you do not have to lodge the person in question. If you are unable to block off the room then it must be disinfected which goes without saying. It is unfortunate that there are still...

    Albergues in the time of covid

    Thanks Faith for posting the link. It is actually possible to follow if you speak Spanish but after 30 minutes I zoned out. Was there anything of interest besides reviewing the guidelines which are in black and white? Cheers

    Camping Thinking about tents

    @Rebekah Scott I haven't seen this requirement in the governmental guidelines for albergue. I'm wondering where you read this.

    Camping Thinking about tents

     Unless it's mine (playing in my soon to be vegetable bed);) I have also been looking around for a reasonably price, lightweight tent for me and Bea. Many of those mentioned I do not consider inexpensive although I do know that they can run into hundreds and hundreds of euros. This is what...

    COVID-19: Corona virus discussion (ROUND 6)

    Yes, read that interview. Don't confuse FICS with the Spanish Federation (Federación Española de los Amigos del Camino de Santiago) which trains and places hospitaletos in donativo albergues along the Camino. The FICS brought up the topic of extending the Compostela rule to 300 km last year or...

    COVID-19: Corona virus discussion (ROUND 6)

    Yes, Sánchez did invite foreign tourists as of July but this was a carrot to the tourism sector. There are no details as of yet about who, from where and in what conditions. These minor details need to be worked out on a EU or country by country basis. This is a step but do not assume that you...

    For some Spanish, yes. If your are in Fase 1 you may not travel outside your area.

    Governmental guidelines albergues

    For most of us in Castilla y León or Madrid and Barcelona June does not seem likely as we are still in Fase 0. We hope to move to Fase 1 on Monday where small retailers may open and terrasses outside at 50% occupation rate. There are still 3 more Fases after that!

    Governmental guidelines albergues

    Actually there is no word when albergues are allowed to open. I am assuming already in July for Spanish pilgrims when the deescalation phases are finished and travel between regions allowed but this is not official.

    COVID-19: Corona virus discussion (ROUND 6)

    Don't hold your breath. This is the 5th extension. Who says there won't be a 6th? And anyway, the voting has not yet taken place. As they say, it's not done till it's done.

    Governmental guidelines albergues

    Thank you @grayland. I'm glad I missed those threads. We are here to help each other and hopefully provide information on the current situation in Spain and with regards to albergues so that pilgrims can make decisions regarding a future Camino. We are all in this together.

    COVID-19: Corona virus discussion (ROUND 6)

    Mid June looks out of the question as Spain will still be going through the deescalation process. Our PM Sánchez has asked to extend the lockdown for a 5th time, the current period ends on May 25. Instead of the past 4 times, he now wants to extend it for a month bringing us till the end of...

    Governmental guidelines albergues

    Nowhere in the guidelines is it stated that bunk-beds are prohibited. If I have a room with 2 bunk-beds (which I do) and a unit of 4 is walking together (family for example) there is no reason not to be able to sleep in the bunk-beds. If on the other hand they are not together than the 2 meter...
