    lost photo journey site

    I am fancying a virtual walk. some favourite days from the past. Many years ago, 10 or 20, I am not sure, there used to be a site on the net that had a day by day guide for quite a few camino journeys. You would click on a day and it would be a sequence of photographs from that day. Lots of...

    The easiest section for a culture vulture that has good accomodation_?

    I tend to just keep going from dawn til dusk, My mother in law has mobility issues. Six miles would be a good day from her. But she has asked if she could join for a section. Is there any section of say 30 miles that has loads of churches, cathedrals, paradors, museums, taxis? You get the...

    Walking without gadgets.

    Phones, iPads, Cameras, Music Players, Games. Facebook updates, live blogging from the path. I think they undermine pilgrimage. I forgo the electronics personally and choose pilgrimage that isn't diverted from an exploration of self by playing with gadgets. Cameras for example rewrite your...

    New private Albergue 3 or 4 km north of Redondela.

    We are just back from the Portuguese route and one of the nicest places we found to stay was the De la Jerezana in Cesantes. The owner spoke good English, as did her German friend who was also working there. The showers were fantastic, akin to those normally found in a decent hotel. Beds...

    To the small American girl with a large black rucksack

    I saw you outside Roncesville at the end of March. What were you thinking? It was huge! I am sorry I didn't stop for longer, my companions wanted to press on and I just followed them. I should have thought more about you predicament, at least offered a shoulder to cry on. If I ever bump...

    The Way - the film

    I went to see The Way last night with a couple of friends and I loved it. The interiors took me back to hostels I knew and loved ((mainly because I was no longer walking and could lie down). Nothing jarred for me, they felt just right. The landscape was great, redolent of Spain. I don't...

    Using an old credential?

    Hi We flew to Porto last year and got a credential from the cathedral. Then took a train to Valenca and walked from there. We had our credentials stamped at the pilgrims office in Santiago. We fly to Porto at the end of May to fill in the gap. Does anyone know if we need a new credential...
