    Virtual planning thread for the Camino Olvidado

    @peregrina2000 thanks for checking that. I hope I am not causing too much trouble by trying to find ways to shorten stages for those of us who are not able to walk a full stage at present. 😁

    or we can cut maybe 10km from this stage by taking the train from Bonar if they operate at a convienent time and then do the detour to the Ermita and rejoin the offical route somewhere around the high point and head to Vegacervera. it would mean a 24km day for us slower walkers but hopefully...

    Virtual planning thread for the Camino Olvidado

    or as an alternative by missing the path from La Meta I could take the train to Valdepiélago walk to Valdorria visit the Ermita and then head on to Vegacervera. I will miss the path from La Meta but I am sure the Ermita and walk onto Vegacervera will make up for it. Do we know if there are taxi...

    Virtual planning thread for the Camino Olvidado

    watching the you tube video for this camino, they seem to head straight up to Valdorria and not go via La Mata de la Berbula, but looking at your route notes the path after La Mata de la Berbula looks really nice. So if you could spend a couple of nights in the area you could do the road...

    Just to throw another option into the mix - I could walk the official route from Cistierna to La Ercina and take a late afternoon train from La Ercina into Bonar.

    Virtual planning thread for the Camino Olvidado

    @peregrina2000 , i have been watching a video on youtube that shows the people walking this stage go straight from Cisitierna to La Ercina, so my question would be if I took the main road straight to La Ericna at just over 7km according to google map what am I missing by not following the guide...

    Virtual planning thread for the Camino Olvidado

    from summer 2014 until late 2017 I was fairly housebound and didn't even have the energy to walk around the supermarkets with my husband. this was devasting as we are keen walkers and thought nothing of doing a 20 mile walk at the weekend but I am starting to recover slowly and hopefully a few...

    Virtual planning thread for the Camino Olvidado

    Hi @peregrina2000 Thanks for your reply, my current walk length is about 10-12km as I have had chronic fatigue syndrome/post viral syndrome which I developed while travelling in 2014. Until about 6 months ago I was only able to do about 4-5 km per walk and then a week recovering from it. I am...

    Virtual planning thread for the Camino Olvidado

    We are planning to stay at Hotel El Molino de Salinas in Salinas during the stage from Aguilar to Cervera. It is right on the Camino and is located by the river in Salinas. The price was £69 for a double room with breakfast. This means we have a nice 12km or so meander the next day into Cervera...

    Virtual planning thread for the Camino Olvidado

    Good to know that it will probably be better to have a late lunch and carry some snacks with me. I have seen the Dia chain as I have been wandering around on google street map, is it personal preference that you avoid them or are they not a good shop to use?

    Virtual planning thread for the Camino Olvidado

    Thanks @peregrina2000, that is a great first day. If I am coping ok then I can do a longer stretch into Guenes and if I need to break myself into Camino life more gently then there is the 11km stop at Alonsotegui. I am also glad to hear there are plenty of food stops along the way.

    Virtual planning thread for the Camino Olvidado

    Many thanks for all the replies regarding food, accommodation and what to do while in Bilbao. My next question would have to be - do people head to the supermarket before starting their walk to stock up on supplies and if so what is their favouvrite food item to buy and where do they go to buy...

    @peregrina2000 thank you for the accommodation and some ideas of what to do in Bilbao. My first question is any good tips on where to go to get some food after landing in Bilbao?

    Any interest in a new "virtual camino?"

    @AJGuillaume - thank you for your response, the reason I am looking for shorter stages is that I am recovering from illness and have only started walking again any distances after almost 6 years of being confined to a very short 1/2 mile. I am now up to about 4-5 miles a day and hope that by the...

    Any interest in a new "virtual camino?"

    I have the Olvidado guide but if we can find a way to cut a couple of the longer stages into more manageable lengths than the Olvidado gets my vote.
