    New guide. Distance, stages.

    Answering a query. The exact distance is uncertain due to walking around towns etc. But the total distance from Alicante to Burgos would be approximately 710 km. Not much more anyway. Stages? Again roughly 26 or 27 days but this would depend on the individual walking. Rest days not included...

    Marking on the Lana 2013

    Hello everyone. Planning time again. Peter Robins has some wonderful maps for this Camino and they will be used, but does anyone know how good the marking on this route is these days. I crossed it near Alpera on the Levante in the spring of 2012 and the marking seemed to be very good. I'm...

    Thought I should report that after spending the night at the private refugio "O Dormiento" in late May at Sarria I noticed the next afternoon the symptoms of a bedbug attack. This was dealt with from information learned on this website and, fortunately, did not spread or cause any further...
