    Baiona or Pontevedra for a weekend?

    The Casa Aurita in Sanxenxo is exceptional as a base. Private beach, ocean views and lovely staff. :D

    Sounds great! What sort of accommodation is available? Is it expensive?

    Weather warning week of 23 June

    The problem is the first day, uphill, all the way to Roncesvalles. It's also the fact that there aren't air-conditioners in many Albergues. Too hot to sleep and too hot to walk......go later in the year.

    Buying women's hiking pants in Australia

    I'm 5ft 2in and I bought Kathmandu zip-offs which were too long and had them taken up at the tailors. Couldn't tell the difference.

    Pre or Post Camino Vacation

    We hired a car post-Camino and drove South-West to Sanxenxo. There's a lovely place right on the beach called Casa Aurora. We swam, paddle-boarded and rested by the ocean. It was great to 'debrief' about the Camino while still in Spain.

    Long-term Distance European E1

    Thank you both for the links you posted. I had browsed these already. I was hoping, however, for any personal experiences from people who have walked part or whole of any of these long distance walks. Hoping that there are some who read this forum.

    Long-term Distance European E1

    I've just discovered there's an 8,000km trail from Palermo to Nordkap and I was wondering if anyone has any experience with it - sections or in it's entirety. Any comments on equipment, accommodation, timing, costs, etc would be interesting. Thanks.

    O Cebreiro

    We stayed at Albergue Casa Campelo and loved it. It was clean, quiet and friendly. O Cebreiro is such a charming place. We only did the 12km up the hill that day so we could enjoy more time there.

    Prevention is a lot less painful than cure!
