    how to pack for an extended trip

    For better or worse - some of what the gentleman suggests here may very well work for the Camino blog/44254172 by Peter Thompson Is your baggage weighing you down? Let go!

    Extra day off

    Provided one has 3 full days to 'relax' but at the same be a bit of the tourist, here is what I am pondering upon: I would like to take a full day off in Burgos (pre-Meseta) and in Leon (post-Meseta), do some touristy stuff - check out cathedrals, churches, perhaps museums.... So... given that...

    SJPdP from Philadelphia

    I was just wondering what it the reasonably 'most economical' way to get from Philly area to SJPdP (and I do understand the Bayonne --> SJPdP train and thus the need to get to Bayonne)? Fly to Biarritz direct? Or perhaps Paris or even Madrid? PHL, JFK, EWR? within reasons - does it make sense to...
