    Bus to Santo Domingo de Silos

    I'm walking the camino Frances again in May, and I would like to take a side trip to visit the monastery at Santa Domingo. Early, I came across a reference to a daily bus from Burgos there in the evening and another one back the next day. All I can find at the moment is a bus from Burgos to...

    Keen sandals and orthotic insoles

    Previously I have always worn train runners with my orthotic insoles when walking in Spain and France. However, I've recently been wearing my Columbia sandals, which have a lip at the back of the heel which holds my half length orthotic in place. I find these sandals very cool and comfortable...

    Conques to Moissac: May or June?

    Last September, I walked from Le Puy to Conques, and really enjoyed the experience. This year I intend to walk on from Conques, as far as Moissac or beyond if I have time. The question is whether to go in May or June. May is more convenient for me, but I read somewhere that May is the month when...

    Bedbugs in Saugues

    So we woke up in the morning, pushed back the blankets - and found a bedbug. Another under my pillow. Great. We told Madame, who told us to go to the chemist for some cream for bites and a spray for the backpack and to wash our clothes. And effectively turned us out. We went to the dry cleaners...

    Bag transport on the Le Puy route

    It's less than 3 weeks before we head off for 2 weeks walking from Le Puy and now my shoulder is playing up and my daughter's back injury is niggling again. So we are seriously thinking about lightening our load by sending a bag ahead. I've never needed to do this before so I'd love your help...

    Questions about gîtes from Le Puy to Conques

    My daughter and I are walking from Le Puy, starting 8 September. We have a couple of practical questions about gîtes. Your help will be much appreciated to assist us so that we take the things we need and not much else! 1. How to pay? Do they, in general, take credit cards, or is cash required...

    Dairy free on the Le Puy route

    My daughter wants to walk from Le Puy this September. She has a dairy intolerance, which whilst not being life threatening, is certainly life disrupting if she inadvertently consumes anything with dairy products made from cow's milk. It makes eating out quite stressful. As she does not want to...

    Buses between Padron and Caldas de Reis

    In a couple of weeks, we hope to spend a few days in Santiago, on holiday. On one of those days, my husband would like to walk to Padron, have a meal there and then catch a bus/train back. Reading around the subject, it sounds as though walking backwards from Santiago is not such a good idea...

    Footwear for the Primitivo..... (sorry!)

    Sorry, another footwear thread. I do like it when life gives you a nice surprise. There was me thinking that family commitments left me no time to walk this May, when, suddenly, things change and I have a nice 2 week gap starting 10 May. I've walked before - SJPP to Santiago in Sept 2014...

    Reporting back from the Cami St. Jaume from Llançà to Montserrat

    I have just returned from a wonderful 2 weeks of walking through the Catalan countryside on the Cami St. Jaume from Llançà in the Costa Brava, to Montserrat. I had a marvellous time. The scenery was great, walking was good, the wild flowers were amazing whilst the bird song just bubbled away in...

    Santiago to Murxia or Muxia to Santiago

    Last September, I walked the camino frances from SJPP, intending to continue on to Finisterre and Muxia but circumstances changed and I ended up flying home on the day after I arrived at Santiago. As a result, it feels like unfinished business, so this June, I am thinking of finishing my walk...

    How to keep your phone safe at night?

    There are lots of clever ways to keep passports, money and credit cards safe whilst asleep during the night, but how do people keep their phones safe? I'm quite an 'active' sleeper and I'm nervous that I will lie on my phone and damage it if I keep it under my pillow, or dislodge it and make it...
