    Thoroughly inconsistent!

    You hit the nail on the head :) went from my parents house to a house with my husband who had a 3 year old son. We have been together 32 years. I have never been on my own. this is a major part of my needing to do this pilgrimage. "I've gone to look for myself. If I should return before I get...

    Reservation at Orisson's

    I'm sorry if this question has been asked already, I looked but could not find it. If I have a reservation at Orisson's but find when I get there that I want to continue on, can I cancel and get a refund? If not, can I donate my bed to someone who would really need it?

    Manners of Cyclists and Walkers (moved from another thread)

    Can't we just have the bikes on the right and walkers on the left. Maybe widen the path little where you can. Where there are small trails have the bikes on their own path in just those areas. I don't mind walking to the left. Everyone should be able to expierence the Camino in their own way...

    A flower

    I have heard and read that the Camino is for all faiths and all faiths are welcomed. I hope this is true. I am of no structured religion. I believe in a higher power and am very spiritual. My question is this, I have a Buen Camino patch on my pack and would like to put a flower over the small...
