    I am on the Via de la Plata now and am staying in the albergue in Fuente de Cantos tonight. It is open.

    Camino del Norte or Via de la Plata in October

    I've read a couple of posts about this...Some women said they brought a nightshirt to put on after showering and/or to wear to sleep. Some people posted that they slept in the clothes that they would be walking in the next day. Any suggestions/comments/thoughts?
