    Another camino waiting to be discovered

    You are absolutely right. Currently there are several associations, along the route trying to promote this Camino, its marking and the logistics. I am quite quite sure that new albergues will be built in the short-middle term. The number of pilgrims is still very limited but growing. I will walk...

    Camino Aragonés with dog

    I am happy that you enjoyed the blog. When I have time I will do a version in English language. I guess the translator doesn't always give the proper meaning. 10 days before departing I started putting an special cream in my dog's pads. Once I was doing the Camino I used to put the cream...

    Camino aragonés

    I will be heading on the 23rd May to Somport. I want to start my walk on 24th. I have read that this Camino is not too populated. Do you agree?... or do you think that I should have to book beds in the Albergues in advance? Thank you Robert

    What about the albergue in Mieres Del Camino ?

    I have slept in that albergue doing El Salvador in 2012. It is not that bad. Not the best but not the worse. We were only two persons that day. We had the entire albergue for ourselves. It is not really close to the city center but you can still walk there if you want. They open late but we...

    horseback SJPP to Santiago in 2013

    Another important tip is the travelling vet certificates for the horse. My advice is you to state that the destination point is Santiago. I am not sure but I think that the certificates have a validity of couple of weeks. After that time, you might need to get a new one. Travelling with horses...

    horseback SJPP to Santiago in 2013

I will try to post some info from Spain later on. It would be easier if you tell me what exactly you need to know. The...

    Hi Few days ago, I came to spend a few days to the village where my father comes from in the province of León. The name is Quintanilla. I was planning to do the Camino Primitivo but surprisingly I saw that in the door of my house somebody had painted some yellow arrows. I discovered that they...

    On horseback

    Hi I would also love to do the Camino on horse on 2012, probably april or May. Later on I would say is too hot for the horses. Are you still into making the way on horse back?. I have prepared some kind of practical guide for myself with most of the things I might need for the horses, as...

    Roads in Le Puy

    Hi My name is Roberto. I planned to do the Camino de Santiago frances in Spain, but due to I live in The Netherlands and that I want to avoid crowds in Spain, I am considering to go for the Camino de Le puy or even the Via Turonensis. I would like to avoid roads as much as possible. Could...

    New Guidebook for the Turonensis out this month

    Hi I have read in old posts from 2008 that the problem of this route "turinensis"is that it goes often through normal roads. Does anybody knows whether it has changed?. I would like to avoid roads as much as possible.
