    LIVE from the Camino Local caminoing

    Most lockdown rules have been lifted in Austria, so a spontaneous walk along the Austrian camino route network from St. Pantaleon to St. Florian in a-little-too-warm weather. Almost no-one else around except some bikers.

    A virtual o-henro on Shikoku

    For those looking for a little different virtual pilgrimage, "tobotobo aruku" has been uploading videos of the Shikoku 88 temple pilgrimage for the past six years. They have reached 245 videos, comprising 83 of the 88 temples, just today. Since the channel contains the videos in reverse order...

    Sello "timing"?

    Apologies if this has been asked, but I've not been able to find anything. Is there a specific "time of day" requirement for getting two daily sellos on the last 100km? Or could you get one at 8:00 and one at 8:05 and be good? Or should the last one of the day always be from your...

    Camino Dos Faros and Muxiana/Finisterrana

    Hello everyone, claims that one can request the Muxiana and Finisterrana when walking the Camino Dos Faros. As far as I understand, both of those certificates require sellos, and the Camino Dos Faros is not (yet?) a route recognized by Santiago, so how would this work? Thanks!
