    Too old?

    Wow! Can Relate to your concern. My first Camino was 2013, too. On that Way, I one night shared the communal room with an 82 YO gent who used the handle, “Cimarron”. He’d already hiked most everywhere. He was slowing down by that time and we fellow hopefuls, had to remind him several times about...

    Suggestions where to start. Le Puy or Geneva

    Questions about Le Puy

    Just your mention of this fantastic Gîte jumps my memories with happy internal videos. I agree that Vincent's accueil is too unique to miss for most pèlerins. The communal meal of fresh organic veggies, collectively made baked lasagna and the laughter, would be a BIG miss. Arrive early!
