    COVID Is the mask required in the albergue and while sleeping?

    Good question. It’s middle of the night in Spain so everyone likely asleep. Hopefully you will get a reply in a few hours.

    What causes people to stop their caminos?

    My husband and I walked part of the Camino together in 2015. We hit problems pretty quickly as we both had different expectations that we didn’t realize we had before we left. I like to walk quickly, ponder, and talk to God. He wanted to walk slowly and take pictures constantly which drove me...

    COVID News from the USA Embassy in Madrid regarding June 7 (for USA citizens)

    So disappointed to hear, UK just announced they are staying closed until approx July 19th. So you are right, I think Camino first is the right, and maybe only way to go right now. My brother is in Wales and I had really hoped to see him. Will see how things look at a later date. Thank you for...

    COVID News from the USA Embassy in Madrid regarding June 7 (for USA citizens)

    I just read this on USA Today news network ‘Americans and many other non-EU nationalities cannot come to Spain for tourism for now.’ So I think you have to have a ‘compelling’ reason if you are not vaccinated.

    COVID News from the USA Embassy in Madrid regarding June 7 (for USA citizens)

    CDC just updated Spain to level 3. Ok to go with vaccinations. https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/notices/covid-3/coronavirus-spain#vax

    COVID News from the USA Embassy in Madrid regarding June 7 (for USA citizens)

    I read that although his vaccination status hasn’t been confirmed one way or another, that he would not have been required to take daily COVID testing if he was vaccinated. You’re right though, a very expensive lesson! He possibly lost out on over $1.6 million.

    COVID News from the USA Embassy in Madrid regarding June 7 (for USA citizens)

    Good question about the insurance coverage. I would probably clarify with the company insuring you just incase.

    COVID News from the USA Embassy in Madrid regarding June 7 (for USA citizens)

    This is a question I’m trying to answer too. I want to fly to the UK first to see family but things are kind of up in the air there right now with the Indian variant. Debating whether to do Camino first then go home to the UK.

    Basic pilgrim experiences on the Camino Frances

    Thank you! I just posted asking about monasteries along the way. This will be helpful!

    Monasteries

    Hello fellow pilgrims! I walked the Camino Frances back in 2014 and am now hoping to do so again this summer. This Camino I would like to stay in a monastery or convent, or hopefully more than one. Has anyone stayed at a monastery or convent along the way that they enjoyed? I realize with COVID...

    Are you pilgrim or walker?

    Ok. Then my misunderstanding. I thought I had read they were bulldozed away. Very relieved to hear that it is unlikely. :)

    Are you pilgrim or walker?

    The rocks get bulldozed? I had no idea. There are so many stories wrapped up in each stone. It is really troubling to my heart that so many peoples thoughts, prayers, remembrances and tears, that are wrapped up in a simple stone, are bulldozed away. Officially sacred or not, I know it will...

    SJPP February 17th update.

    Hi Gianni. Have you been alone so far or were there other pilgrims leaving with you from St Jean?
  18. karenfromcali

    this is probably a dumb question, but...

    From someone who seriously has no sense of direction and could get lost in a paper bag and still managed to walk the camino, trust me, it's hard to get lost. There are plenty of arrows. If you plan on staying anywhere that will take you off the path just pay attention where you left it and re...
