    Quick bit of advice

    My wife and I were going to give this year a miss as far as doing a Camino is concerned and we started to look at alternative walks. Our original plan was do do the Francés again but we are worried about the large numbers of people, sharing rooms in albergues etc. So we will probably do the CF...

    Quick word in praise...

    ...of the fantastic app that I downloaded from here... Apologies as I am sure there is a thread for it. However, my wife and I finished our first Camino on 25th was bloody wonderful and we loved it...(in spite of one or three very sweary days!!)... I just wanted to say that the...

    Feeling somewhat concerned

    Please help me out here... This will be our first Camino and one of the first things I learned was that there is no need to book alburgues you just turn up. I have just read a thread below with some trepidation as it talks about full accommodation and no beds available. Also saying that you...

    Staying in SJPDP

    As a follow up to my earlier post, we want to stay in SJPDP for two nights before setting off...we thought it would be nice to spend a day walking around the town as we are going to arrive in the evening... I have temporarily reserved Maison Simonenia. Does anyone know this place and is it ok...

    Sorry as I know this will have been asked many times... Biarritz to SJPDP

    I humbly apologise in advance but I have looked at the train times and I am not sure exactly what I am seeing... We plan to arrive (via Ryanair) at Biarritz at 17.05 on 23rd September. According to what I believe is the timetable, the last train leaves Bayonne at 17.53 for SJPDP. After that it...
