    COVID COVID-19: Corona virus discussion (Round 4)

    My husband and I intended to hike the Kumano Kodo in Japan in April. I miss the days of only worrying about bears and poisonous snakes! Since Delta has extended their change and cancellation fee waivers for flights leaving through April 30th, we are going to postpone our trip until December...

    COVID Opening a coronavirus thread for forum discussion

    We called Delta about our cancellation fee and learned that we'll get reimbursed in Delta eCredits, but they need to be used by May 20th this year, which is a year from when we bought the tickets. So if we don't go to Japan, we at least will go somewhere! I suggested Belize as Plan B! Chilling...

    COVID Opening a coronavirus thread for forum discussion

    My husband and I have been planning a trip to Japan leaving early April to hike the Kumano Kodo for the past year, and we are taking it day to day trying to decide whether or not to cancel the trip--we have three weeks to make the call before we face significant cancellation fees. The CDC...

    Spain, now the healthiest country in the world.

    I studied abroad for 10 months in Salamanca in 2010-2011 and lived with a Spanish family, and they always ate very well. The only fried thing I can think of is croquetas occasionally. There were always three courses including bread (Naturally, you can't have a meal without bread in Spain!), but...

    Bear spray rental?

    Thank you for your responses. I knew there were a couple poisonous snakes on the trail but I truthfully wasn't too worried. My understanding of snakes was they generally don't want to be around people. (Though I'm not an expert at all.) So my main plan was to pay attention and not step on any...

    Bear spray rental?

    Thank you! That is reassuring. I don't have Facebook, but this forum community has been a real gem for getting useful info on both the Camino de Santiago and the Kumano Kodo from all the experienced hikers. And thank you for seeking out info on the Facebook group. My guidebook I bought (The...

    Bear spray rental?

    Hi, everyone! Does anyone have advice on where to buy or rent bear spray in Japan for the Kumano Kodo? I know it might be overkill, but I'd rather have some and not need it than need it and not have it. We also plan on bringing some bear bells.

I'm going to be in Santiago de Compostela with my family--we'll be a group of five--next August, and I was wondering if anyone has any advice on how to experience a queimada in Santiago? Does anyone have any specific restaurant suggestions or experiences with booking a queimada--or...

    Luggage Storage

    Thanks! I suspected that would be the case but it is nice to have it confirmed so I know what to pack and not add unnecessary weight.

    Luggage Storage

    Thanks! I'll look into both the Osaka and Kii-Tanabe luggage storage options suggested. I wouldn't have used a communal hairbrush either, ha. And I'll be sure to follow-up after the trip on our experience!

    Hi, everyone! My husband and I are spending five days and six nights walking the Nakahechi trail in April 2020. We booked our accommodations through the Tanabe Tourism website. Does anyone have any advice or experience with luggage storage while you are walking the Kumano Kodo? We are in Japan...
