    Safety for women on the Camino

    Hola Asel, this is such a shame but I feel your fears are very valid and I would not want to walk alone as a woman either. I am walking the Camino del Norte right now with my husband and there was an incident just after Deba (22-Apr-16). We were walking with a young (19 years old) German girl...

    Live - Cam. Norte Zarautz to Deba in 2 days

    Thanks, that definitely helps our decision. My legs are still shakey after the aplinista route from Irun, and my knees aren't too happy with me either. I think the Coastal route calls.

    Live - Cam. Norte Zarautz to Deba in 2 days

    Just finished our 1st day, Hondurribia to San Sebastian yesterday. Weather and views were amazing, but legs are a bit shakey :-) we are looking for advice on the route out of Zarautz to Deba that we will be on the day after tomorrow. Apparently there is a Coastal route or higher level option...

    Hendaye to Bilbao - March 2016 - An itinerary - In case it's useful...

    Hi Ed, could you give me your thoughts/opinions on staying at the Monastary? We have just completed our 1st day on the Norte, in SS right now and are interested in staying there. Do we need to call ahead to make sure there is room? Can we have a dinner and/or breakfast there or close by...

    Words of wisdom please

    Hola Niels, we are in Hondurribia right now starting our Camino in the morning (18th). Since we are staying 2 nights in San Sebastian our paths may cross. Will be looking our for you. Buen Camino

    1000 Mile Sock

    I think I have it covered... One or hopefully all of these should work. If not, we'll be walking a week before we hit Bilbao again, so can adjust with one of the Spanish Sports stores there. Seriously not happy with the customer service at 1000 Mile Socks. Not sure why my socks have still not...

    1000 Mile Sock

    Thanks Richard, these REI socks sure had great reviews. In Canada we have Mountain Equipment Coop (MEC), very similar to REI and where I went today and got some Wigwam synthetic liners. I was happy with them when I bought them, then read the online reviews when I got home which were not good...

    1000 Mile Sock

    Thanks - I loved Wright Socks for running but have had a hard time finding ones that are more than anklets.

    1000 Mile Sock

    In my sock hunt today, I found "Smartwool" Ultra Light socks which were more lightweight than any I have seen. Very nice.

    1000 Mile Sock

    Heading out tomorrow (April 14th) for Bilbao and our next month on the Camino del Norte. Backpack is packed and weighs in at under 10% of my body weight - only missing one thing... socks! We ordered 4 pairs of "1000 Mile Socks" from Vancouver, BC, Canada, 3 weeks ago and still no socks. We...

    iPhone Portable Battery Charger

    Just did some investigation and the Anker looks great. The 10,000 mah (which recharges 4 times) is a fraction of the price (in Canada) and weights only 1/2 lb. Thanks!

    iPhone Portable Battery Charger

    Hi Clare, We were looking at the ones that you are talking about. I think we will go with these PowerBear Battery Cases. They get about 2 charges (I think) and use the same charger as the phone, so only need to carry one cord. We used Wikiloc on a local hike and lost our battery charge really...

    iPhone Portable Battery Charger

    Thanks everyone for the input. I am checking out the Power Bear battery phone case which we will probably buy. Maybe my husband can carry it :D.

    iPhone Portable Battery Charger

    We have been experimenting on our training walks with Wikiloc on our iPhone which seems to zap the battery life. We want to be able to use our iPhone 5 for GPS purposes so think that we may want to carry along a iPhone Portable Battery Charger. We have seen some that can recharge up to 4...

    Bathing Suit or Not

    That's funny. I'm thinking don't bring my bathing suit, but will probably see what the final numbers come in when I weigh my packed backpack. It'll be in the "maybe" pile. Which means that it could be a skinny dip if we do have unseasonable warm weather :-) But, I'm one of those Canadians...

    Bathing Suit or Not

    We will be heading out soon (April 14 - May 19) for the Camino del Norte. We would love to think that we can go for swims along the way, but realistically, weather wise, will we need to pack our bathing suit? We don't want to carry the extra weight if not needed.

    Smart Packing and Unexpected Backpack Items

    Rick Steeves also has this type of clothesline available for purchase through his website. I have used it everywhere and finally forgot it on a balcony in Porto. It was so invaluable to me, I had to buy another.
