    There is no such thing as bad weather...

    I recently walked the Augustine Camino over seven days, starting on 14th Dec. So a late autumn walk with the weather conditions that one might expect at this time of year. Preparing for that on the other side of the world in a different hemisphere was interesting. Why do this as a pilgrimage...

    Walking the St Olavsleden

    I am leaving shortly for a long trip to Sundsvall, and plan to start walking the St Olavsleden route from Selanger later in the week. I expect to be in Trondheim for Olsok eve, and stay a few days for the Olavsfestdagene before heading back home via England and Western Australia in early August.

    Planning to Walk St Olavsleden

    I am beginning to plan my 2018 pilgrimage to Trondheim on the St Olavsleden route from Sundsvall. Some of you will remember that I had originally thought I would do this last year, but I deferred it and walked the CF with my wife. I was able to pick up a copy of Staffan Soderlund and Marie...

    Market Days on the Camino Routes

    There has been some discussion about the days when weekly markets occur in various towns. I know that there was a market in Los Arcos on the Tuesday when I walked in 2010, and other have identified market days in different threads.

    What blister prevention techniques did you use?

    I am interested in what blister prevention techniques are most commonly used by those who have undertaken a Camino, and whether or not you would take the same approach in the future. I would appreciate responses only from those members who have done the camino or a similar non-competitive...

    Walking the Gudbrandsdalsleden from Oslo to Nidaros

So far it has been such a completely different experience to the Camino Frances; sometimes in ways...

    How to tell if your backpack is too light

    I loved tamtamplin's take on how to tell when one's backpack is too heavy, but think it deserves a companion set of tests to tell if your bag is too light! Having met several pilgrims last year who were travelling very light, my tests are: You should suspect your pack is too light is you have...
