    Camino Podcast Week 180 - the Irish pilgrim Natasha Murtagh walked the Camino with her father. This is a great story about love...and family. Camino family.

    Will download and listen at the weekend. Enjoyed the book they wrote together. I wonder does she mention that her Dad Peter was on another great adventure when COVID-19 struck. Hopefully this link works...

    COVID Covid and booked tours

That’s the way I work. Here in Ireland I know people with bookings for group tours to Asia and were...

    Baztán Guide

    Walked this way last September. Enjoyed it, especially after first 15km from Bayonne, it’s not really by the river as mentioned by other posts. But don’t rely on my recall.

    Refilling Prescriptions

    👍 Perhaps it’s something similar to taking poles in carry on baggage. Some pharmacies have given me requested antibiotics and other medication without prescription while others will refuse. Plan ahead if necessary.

    Ireland camino start ?

    In Drogheda, Co.Louth not too far from Dublin airport the new Boyne Valley Camino might be suitable for overseas pilgrims on route to Spain. I have seen the sellos available on the route. Circular although a bit large for concertina / typical style passport. Perhaps they were designed for the...

    Recent feedback from the Salvador

    Laurie, I doubt it was Ender......I arrived about 8pm last July and hospitalero plus 1 were looking after all pilgrims. I think if it was Ender there would have been some conversation about experience on the way. Yes, I am happy to have the scarf, although unlikey to wear here in Ireland! Maybe...

    Starting from Lourdes 1st April 2019

    Bon Chemin, and in a few days it will be Buen Camino! Ryanair now fly from Dublin to Lourdes, so maybe there will be a slight increase of Irish pilgrims on this route. If you have time or energy to post current information it will be appreciated. Enjoy.

    Bolsena

    I think it might be good for a rest day but having walked through it twice I wouldn't mark it in my diary for an extended stay. My first was walking from Lucca and only had picnic. Second time I slept but felt no need to extend stay. However it is a nice town. Also there is a big supermarket...
