    Caminho with my dog

    Another website that may be of use to you is http://www.caminoconmiperro.com/ They offer a lot of information on how to prepare for the perregrino and they urge everyone to make an honest analysis of what you dog is capable of. Basically, you plan your camino around the needs of the dog and...

    Caminho with my dog

    Hi Cintia, since you are from Portugal, perhaps the best option would be to ask a friend to pick you and your dog up by car? Or else, walk back from Santiago to Fisterra and the along the coast to Portugal. APACA has lots of info about doing the caminos with dogs or another pet, link here...

    LIVE from the Camino Snow. Primitivo Yay or Nay?

    there are of course pilgrims who walked a winter camino through ice and snow. they have the pictures to prove it. but most of them did not start during a heatwave 😇 😇 I would have been home long ago if I had to endure what you have gone through *respect* stay safe, stay warm and enjoy the ride!

    LIVE from the Camino Snow. Primitivo Yay or Nay?

    the bus is your friend, you know that already :) take the bus to where the sun keeps shining and where the weather suits your clothes. it is no use to walk where you can't. and please don't sleep in your tent in these conditions, unless you have a bivvy bag (and you don't).

    One amazing day on Camino dos Faros/Costa da Morte!

    I've said it before and will probably say it again: I do not have a bucket list, but the Camino dos Faros is on it. The pictures are wonderful, an amazing world in one day.

    Camino markers/signs

    Or make your own. The design of this marker is pretty simple and working with wet concrete is very similar to pouring cookie dough or chocolate. The taste, however, is different and not worth a try.

    3 youngs sisters are walking the camino for the first time

    The description of 3 young sisters had me worried. Turns out they are not that young, they are thirty-ish. One of them has a webshop and sells eco-things. From her blog: :oops::oops:

    The Longest Possible Walk in the World

    Given the challenges you encounter on the longest walk, the opposition of the author to ferries is odd I'll gladly take a ferry or two if this allows me to escape mambas, armed robberies, war zones, hippos and temperatures of minus 37 C. It is perhaps best to consult the safety considerations...

    Masked man in forest out of Tomar

    This has happened before, also outside Tomar: The post is from last year. It is indeed best to walk together. Never mind your snail pace, Miki. I hope you carry poles. The Santarem area, in fact the entire area between Lisbon and Porto, is mentioned too often in cases of harassment of solo...
