    N.B: there is no need to show a PCR to enter bars & restaurants at medium level.

    COVID Vaccine certificate needed for entry to bars and restaurants in Galicia?

    Interesting - I can see/read about 3 concellos on the Camino de Invierno affected by this: Chantada, Monforte, O Barco. Would be interesting to hear from someone out there now.

    How to get a Donkey

    OMG! Sorry for being so incredulous. Ivar writes: (...) http://www.elburroperegrino.com . This is a company that rents out donkeys to pilgrims. They deliver the animal to you, take care of it each night and returns it to you each morning. (...) There are some restrictions: - They only have...

    How to get a Donkey

    Please, there are numerous threads about this particular subject already. You can find it at... ... No, just kidding. Now my serious question: If you buy it, will you then sell it in Santiago de Compostela, or take it with you to your home country?!

    Did I hear correctly there is a fast train from SdC to Madrid?

    I also took this train two weeks ago to Madrid. I will keep doing it when in Santiago. The bus takes twice as long (about 8 hours) to Madrid. As for flying, as someone wrote above, 4 and 1/2 hour is about as fast, if not faster, than getting on a plane (considering the fuzz of transport and...

    COVID Vaccine certificate needed for entry to bars and restaurants in Galicia?

    Only in 36 municipalities in Galicia right now, was the latest that I read. The names of the municipalities are easy to find on-line. And: Bares y restaurantes de concellos en nivel alto y máximo sí podrán abrir sus interiores, pero exigiendo a los clientes el carné de vacunación, un documento...

    Expensive Accommodations!

    I stayed in Irún pretty much this same week in 2019. I was not prepared for the prices! I thought something was wrong when I tried to find lodging (the same day as I arrived; stressful) and nothing was below 50-60 euros. (Albergue was full!) I paid 65 euros for 1 night in a hostal... Then I...

    The Red Bull race on the Primitivo

    They are also going to stamp this poor woman at every stop 😂

    The Red Bull race on the Primitivo

    Hmm, Fortunately there will be only 1 of these days (24, 25 or 26) that they come running. If I would be walking the Primitivo, their presence would probably ruin one of those days, but personally I would be fine with that. And it remains to be seen if there will be so many as 40 groups; could...

    The Naked Pilgrim

    Isn't that breaking some law of... decency? They could end up in the Appalachian Trial instead! *ba-dum-tch*

    Have fun in Santiago tomorrow, and beyond! Thanks for updates!

    Camino Invierno july 9th 2021

    If Rodeiro is completo, there is not much else to do... I wish the O Guerra (restaurant + rooms) would pick up business, but it seems nothing is happening there. Enjoy Lalín! I have heard the albergue is really good. I have seen glimpses of it in pilgrims' vlogs! Are you staying in a Laxe...

    LIVE from the Camino BP on the Invierno July 2021: Practical info

    Hi Khiker9, Not any flyers, and I don't use those services myself, so I know nothing about it. But I wrote in 2018 or 2019 that there were many bags waiting to be sent forward in the morning in the hostales in Monforte de Lemos and Rodeiro. So there must be some kind of service! In 2018 I spoke...

    LIVE from the Camino BP on the Invierno July 2021: Practical info

    Thanks, but there weren't so many updates, only my blabbing 😟!! About hope... Covid cases are on the rise, that is why I better get home as soon as possible. The Galician newspapers are full of it: "Alarming increase" and "Do we need new restrictions?" . But on the opposite page there are...
