    Camino safety reports APP?

    Hello All, I remember hearing about a mobile app through which you can report incidences on the Camino. Not sure if it's a Camino thing or a Spain thing in general. Anyone that can point me in the right direction?

    Best location to rent for a month along Frances

    My family and I are considering renting for the month of August somewhere along the Frances while we finish our book about the Camino. No walking as husband has a bad injury, but we just want to be around the Camino vibe as we write. We'd like to be somewhere that a car is not necessary, might...

    Baby on the Camino - my takeaways

    Hello Pilgrims, We just returned from completing the Ingles with our six-month old baby boy. We actually started in Ireland, then flew to Spain to connect with the Ingles.

    Etiquette for Order of Arrival @ Albergue

    Hi All, Is there an accepted etiquette for order of arrival at the albergues? For example, if we arrive at 2pm and the door doesn't open until 4, and it's a small one with only 10 or 20 beds, should we sit there and wait in a line? I heard lining up packs is usually OK so you can wander off for...

    Bag Storage in Madrid & Elsewhere

    We are flying into Madrid before taking a bus to Irun where we will start our Camino del Norte. We have luggage that needs to be stored, so we searched for a hotel to stay in that would keep it while we were walking. We were worried about it though, since it contained valuable electronics. We...
