    Camping Camping the Camino del Norte

    As per the other enquiry about camping, you need to actually spend money and buy a a good quality lightweight tent, or their will be guaranteed trouble on wet, cold, windy etc nights! Cheap tents are either heavy or rubbish that will not withstand a shower.

    Camping Thinking about tents

    Pop up tents usually have rigid fiberglass poles or similar, so don't fold small! And having a single skin, no peg, cheap tent to my way of thinking is just asking for miserable nights. Better to spend money on a good quality lightweight tent. I do have a lifetime of bushwalking experience!

    What is the best SIM to use

    I used Vodaphone, finding a shop when I got there. I guess you can Google where they are. The advantage was that the salespeople all spoke English!

    Is Courtesy Still Alive on the Camino? A Pre-Bookers Rant and more...

    I think you are screaming at the wrong people. If a hostel or whatever takes bookings then people are entitled to book. You should, perhaps, be complaining to the people who run the establishments, they are the ones who make the rules not the users. I was not aware the god ran a booking...

    Could O Cebreiro hostal be full

    I stayed in the new Linares hostel, very nice hostel, but there is very little at Linares, only a small shop and tractor repair factory! No food available at the hostel. Seems to like group bookings, so book ahead if you want a bed. Hostel is on the road opposite side to the shop if you are...
