    Yes I am up for the Via de la Plata this year and have a flight into Malaga on the 20th April. In May it’s hot enough to boil a monkey’s bum, your Majesty.

    Poll Why are you walking the camino?

    I wouldn’t dream of getting involved with the alleged activities of medieval monks however..... a contemporary pilgrim in Spain can drink to their heart’s content, gamble online through their smartphone and fornicate in the numerous, legal clubs and brothels along the Camino routes. Not much...

    Poll Why are you walking the camino?

    Stivandrer, I have the privilege of walking the Via de la Plata now and I am in Merida. I never ask others why they are on a Camino or what they do/did for a job.

    Anyone walking now???

    Hi there Heather, reporting to you from the Via de la Plata. Well, call me old fashioned, Basically, I follow the route markers on the Camino track.

    What clothes do you wear after shower

    I have the enormous privilege to walk Caminos with great respect for the fellowship of others. I wouldn’t dream of upsetting or causing distress to any Albergue dweller. For sure, I do enjoy a good story/joke/laugh. So, Sharon if you do see a naked man entering the dormitory carrying a whip...

    Anyone walking now???

    Hi Alipilgrim, off course I am very happy to share events on the VdlP. However... I will probably get to Merida or Caceres on this Camino. Then back home for my beautiful granddaughter’s first birthday, my ugly brother’s 75th birthday and the horse races at Cheltenham. I plan to continue the...

    Anyone walking now???

    Heather, you will not have a problem finding good places to sleep and eat on the VdlP. For what it’s worth... I arrived in Seville late morning on 2nd January. I took a local bus to Santiponce(M170) as I didn’t want to walk through the industrial estates. From there it’s about 12km to Guillena...

    Anyone walking now???

    Another amazing and beautiful day walking from Castilblanco to Almadén de la Plata. A razor blue sky and a forest nature park as companions. Three kings celebrations this evening and the town is buzzing with very happy children. Let me know if I am boring you.

    Anyone walking now???

    Yo peeps, via de la plata in the sunshine. Cold in the morning/evening and beautiful during the day. Staying in a top place in Castilblanco. I must have died and gone to heaven (even though I have been a very bad boy). Peace and love.

    Recommendation for Lucca accommodation

    I stayed in the San Frediano Hostal, which is inside the city walls. I didn't book in advance and thought it a pretty decent place ( a kind of Youth Hostel that welcomes Pilgrims). Lucca is amazing.
