    Orisson - Spam

    Hi Kanga, No, it's coming direct from refuge.orisson@wanadoo.fr to me and what looks like hundreds of others in the to: address line. Thought others who have communicated with Orisson over the years might be recieving the same. Different "spammish" looking links each day.

    Orisson - Spam

    Anyone else being "bombarded" with spam from refuge.orisson@wanadoo.fr. Started this week, not sure but their email list may have been hacked.

    Have been doing it wrong all these years

    I think if it fits her budget & time frame, it sounds great. I've met and walked with people on similar trips and they seem to love it. Not my choice but that really doesn't matter.

    What's the Difference between a Pilgrimage and a Long Walk?

    Yes, I think some of the UK walks would be great, mind you, your Italian walk sounded good as well. Colin

    What's the Difference between a Pilgrimage and a Long Walk?

    Nepal Earthquake

    Can you get a compostela if you didn't walk the last leg?

    Yes, I certainly don't "fully understand" the meaning of the Camino. Fortunately, we all just need to meet the simple basic requirements, inscribed on the Compostela, to rightly recieve it. The text of the Compostela is written in Latin. The translated text is as follows: “The Chapter of...

    Can you get a compostela if you didn't walk the last leg?

    Well, I would think that someone has to make the decision, is to be issued to 12 yrs olds, or to 6yrs olds, or to 1 yr olds? Afterall, seeing that it is the "Church's" Compostela, I would think it reasonable that they be allowed to make some sought of adjudication.

    Can you get a compostela if you didn't walk the last leg?
