    An informative video of the route

    I was walking with my grandson a couple of years ago and we got off the route on one of those shortcuts that actually turnout to be long cuts. We went in to a local bar in a little farm community for a cold drink and I was confused as I had to pretty much order from the bartender by sign...

    How many people Start the Camino yearly from SJPP

    700 km, which route?

    You might consider starting about 100 km past Le Puy and walk to St Jean to meet the 700 km limit. It is 800 km from Le Puy to SJPP. A very well traveled route..all in France with a very different feel but at the same time a very familiar feel. I am glad I did not miss it.

    Who wants an Ivar (Forum) pin?

    Booked our flights at a good rate

    I always carry everything on on the way over to Europe to avoid losing something I need on the camino. I usually check the pack and just carry valuables on the return flight as I am not concerned about baggage delays on the way home. @trecile....I used to fly out of Seattle (usually on award...

    Looking for a casa rural to run on the Camino in Galicia?

    Thanks for that correction. 😬😬 I somehow missed it. I thought it strange that no one asked about it.

    Any past or future pilgrims in the Top End?

    It may be a good time to form a local Pilgrim group. A local group is a great source for organizing walks and coffee sessions A Facebook group is a good place to maintain contact. Good luck!

    Pilgrim Rescue near Roncesvalles 6/1/21

    Thanks to everyone for their input, warnings and observations on the rescue of the Pilgrim. All agree that it is inadvisable to attempt a crossing of the pass in January during a snow storm in a pandemic. It may be time to close this for now.
