    So who is looking at May!

    Will be starting in Pamplona on June 6th (Inshallah!).

    Petition to stop lithium mine in Cañaveral

    In the gospel of Matthew it says: But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. Therefore I am not saying if I signed or not... Ah, what...

    Possible to walk May 2021

    I laughed out loud reading this since I consider myself being followed by bad luck pretty much where ever I go. When reading I imagined myself in a rural jail somewhere along the camino. All of a sudden a guard opens the cell door only to throw another person in there. ”Say hello to your new...

    COVID Vaccination timing for hospitaleros?

    Are you disqualifying me? Am I not welcome on the camino if I don’t want to be part of a ”camino family” and if I choose to spend the evenings alone?

    COVID Vaccination timing for hospitaleros?

    You hit the nail on the head with those last lines. Everyones camino is different, we all walk it for different purposes and in different manners. Some actually walk it to be alone, to NOT interact with other people. Some walk it to meet many people from different nationalites, to eat and drink...

    COVID Vaccination timing for hospitaleros?

    I don’t think it is fair to compare walking the camino with being packed like sardines in Mallorca or Madrid, but I get your point.

    COVID Vaccination timing for hospitaleros?

    Guess I am officially this forums most unethical and selfish member then, because if the government, all the regions and hostel owners say I am welcome I am going!

    COVID Vaccination timing for hospitaleros?

    Hear hear! Vaccinated or negative Covid-test 72 hours before arrival. Can’t see what would be unethical or selfish about that.
  9. Mr. Walker

    COVID Vaccination timing for hospitaleros?

    Wow, you are a saint. Maybe by the time I get to Santiago de Campostela I will be as enlightened as you. All jokes aside.. If the Spanish government says tourists are welcome, if there are no restrictions crossing regional borders, if the hostels are opened again, the restaurants and bars as...

    COVID Vaccination timing for hospitaleros?

    I hear what you say and I agree to a certain degree. But if there are no restrictions and the Spanish government says tourist are welcome again (vaccinated or with a negative covid test taken 72 hours before arrival) I would go in a heartbeat. I don’t see why someone should feel they are not...

    Thanks again for all your answers. If I understand correctly; what hinders me, being a european citizen, from flying to Pamplona and walk to Santiago de Campostela are the closed regional borders. Once those restrictions are lifted I am good to go?

    Thank you so much for all your answers! Prayers and patience it is then..

    Possible to walk May 2021

    Can’t find any information regarding this. Is it possible to start in Pamplona and walk to Santiago de Campostela in May 2021?

    Wi-Fi or no WiFi?

    Reality is relative, what's important is relating to each other. Impossible when one of two is high as a kite.
  15. Mr. Walker

    Wi-Fi or no WiFi?

    I remember a small village where they had no wi-fi at all. A young Frenchman sitting outside the restaurant told me that he lived there, totally disconnected. While telling me this he smoked the biggest joint I have ever seen. Yup, disconnected for sure, I thought to myself.

    Wi-Fi or no WiFi?

    I think to stay offline while walking the Camino is alot like the alcoholic who doesn't drink for 4 weeks and then, very proud of the achievement, goes straight back to his or hers old living and excessive habits. Perhaps we should all worry a bit more about the time we spend online in our day...

    Time to campeed, vaseline or duct tape?

    Thank you for this comforting post! The budget is tighter than my shoes.
  18. Mr. Walker

    Time to campeed, vaseline or duct tape?

    I get the message. Everyone has their own remedy. If I was to follow every piece of kind advice I've been given I must also buy a new pair of shoes, size... 17, to fit all the dubble socks, tape, compeed and panty liners in them. :) You are probably right, I shouldn't have a hot spot already...

    Time to campeed, vaseline or duct tape?

    :) English is not my native language. The words I know are all from songs and movies. Never seen those wise guys use sporttape to shut someones mouth… But for a pinky toe it is probably better. Thank you!
