    12 days on the Camino Primitivo - Sept. 13 to 25th

    I have been back almost a week since walking the Primitivo with my wife. We started in Oviedo on Sept. 13th and arrived in Santiago on Sept. 25th. We enjoyed perfect fall weather. Not a drop of rain and the trails while slightly wet in a few areas had dried out greatly as compared to what I had...

    Graffiti...but with a message

    While it would be better if pilgrims could refrain from defacing things with graffiti, you do come across messages that are some times interesting.

    Your single favorite picture of your Camino

    Tough to single out one picture that defined your Camino, but for me it is this shot as we left Cruz de Fero and were on our way to Acebo and ultimately to Ponferrada at the end of the that day of walking.

    Minimum Distance to qualify for the Compostela

    About a year ago I read that their was some discussion that there was talk about increasing the minimum walking distance to qualify for a Compostela from 100 to 300 kilometers.

    Significance of stone circle (menhirs) near Atapuerca

    I have been trying to determine the significance of a group of 6 stone menhirs located between Ages and Atapuerca. There is a single stone menhir very close to Attapuerca which I gather marks the spot of the Battle of Atapuerca in 1054, but I can't seem to find any reference to the stone circle...

    Manjarin - Tomas

    Just out of curiosity, does anyone know for sure if Tomas is still at his albergue in Manjarin? I have seen some threads that suggest his health has been failing. Is he currently there, or is the his unique albergue being run by others now.

    Type of Tree

    This may seem like a stupid question, but what type of tree is shown in this picture? They are everywhere in public courtyards on the Camino. Obviously heavily pruned each year. This picture is from April, 2015 in Burgos.

    Walking Partner Camino Madrid - Fall 2017

    My wife advised she will sit this one out as we are already doing the Portuguese route in April 2017. So I am looking at a potential start date anywhere from mid September 2017 to mid October 2017. From what I have read so far, pilgrims are often few and far between on this route. From past...

    Has anyone walked the Madrid route?

    Looking for ideas for a future Camino. I was looking at the Madrid route that terminates in Sahagun on the Camino Frances route. Madrid is easy to get to and I find some appeal in that I could start in Madrid versus having to bus or take a train to an alternate starting point. My plan would...
