    COVID PCR & Antigen test in Melide

    I just contacted Clinica Medica Rosalmar in Melide by WhatsApp to ask if they do COVID tests with certificates for travel and they responded yes, PCR and Antigen, and immediately a woman from the clinic called me. She was concerned I would be taking the test too far in advance of my flight...

    Primitivo in late October / early November?

    I'm finally planning my makeup Camino from my lost May 2020 Primitivo. I've searched the Forum for all threads on the Primitivo in November but I'm posting to see if anybody has any advice not yet shared on here. The earliest I can start walking is October 26. I plan on starting in Amandi -...

    Getting to Villaviciosa

    I will have 15 full days between the day I fly into Asturias airport and the day I fly out of Santiago. I know I could walk from Oviedo to Santiago in less than 13 days but unless I fall in with some fast pilgrims I'll probably follow the guidebook more or less. That leaves two extra days to...

    Walking "feels like" factor?

    Here's an impossible question to answer so feel free to guess without any scientific basis. Averaging the Frances and the Primitivo (not every day is Meseta nor is every day O'Cebreiro) how many kilometers on the Primitivo would you say feels like 30 kilometers on the Frances? I'm asking for a...

    Finisterre in January?

    After lots of trips of between 2 to 8 days walking, I finally made it to Santiago last Sunday - what a delight! I'm already researching the Portuguese, Ingles, Primitivo, Via Francigena etc. as this slow Camino Frances has been as much fun as it has been life changing for me. I'm a pilgrim for...

    Recognize this pilgrim?

    This statue is just after O Cebreiro. I just realized that the picture I took is the same statue as on the cover of a book from 2004 that my mother in law gave me. The staff is now broken off at the hand and the brickwork around the base seems different. Does anybody know the back story on this...

    Communal dinner in Sarria?

    My last night last trip I stayed at the Xunta. I've heard good things about La Casona and the Internacional. Has anybody found an albergue with a communal dinner in Sarria? Anything like Orisson or En El Camino in Boadilla del Camino? I'm hoping with so many albergues in Sarria I can get my...

    Restart in Sarria

    IGNORE THIS PART AND SEE NEXT POST After five trips of various lengths, I am finally within striking distance of Santiago. In July I will set out again, this time from Sarria. I know, what was I thinking doing this section in July? Well, just as the Camino decides a lot of things for you, my...

    Das Animas

    This private albergue in Ambasmestas between Villafranca del Bierzo and O Cebreiro is a good choice. I stayed there a couple of weeks ago. It is run by a German couple, Sabine and Uli. They are extremely nice, the single beds on the top floor are a plus (there are bunks downstairs), and...

    El Pajar de Oncina

    This albergue has been mentioned very favorably elsewhere on this forum, but I just wanted to recommend taking the route less traveled from Leon to Hospital del Orbigo and staying at El Pajar de Oncina. On my most recent Camino trip, after flying to Madrid from the US, I took the bus to Leon...

    Burgos to Sahagun Albergues

    I'm walking el Camino the slow way - this summer it's Burgos to Sahagun. Any thoughts on great albergues to stay in along the way? I have 5-6 days to do 5 1/2 etapas - I'll be flying to Madrid, taking the bus to Burgos and setting out on foot with little to no sleep. Any thoughts on things I...

    Taberna de Ages

    It's been a few months but I have to tell you guys about how fantastic the Taberna de Ages was to me. I stayed there back in January after a grueling mountain pass in the snow. The lodging was nice - I had a hot shower, a delicious dinner, and a good night's sleep. The next morning I had a...

    Logrono to Burgos in January

    Dear all: I have made it from SJPP to Logrono and I'm working on Logrono to Burgos at the moment. My tentative plan is to go mid January - I have miles on American and a 4 day weekend for MLK day. I assume the weather will be brisk or colder. Any thoughts or comments to help my planning? If...

    Hey all

    I'm going to walk 6 days in early August from St. Jean to Logrono. I have a 30 liter pack and I'm wondering how much warm wear to take and or change of clothes. I have pre-booked all of the hostels but I don't know if doing laundry along the camino is really convenient or not. Any suggestions...
