    Bag transport with Jacobtrans

    Hmmm, I Just received my bag today. I put a ten euro in the envelope because I had nothing smaller, and when my bag arrived there was no change (5 euro) in the envelope. I guess Jacotrans thought I was a big tipper?

    Bag transport with Jacobtrans

    Hi everyone! I’m currently on the Frances route. I’ve been transporting my bag using Jacobtrans - usually 5 euro each day - but when I arrived in Leon (from Sahagun) I discovered that Jacobtrans indicated I owed an additional 10 euros for that segment of the journey. I paid. But does anyone have...

    Questioning the wisdom of bringing mosquito netting

    Hello, I'll be on the Camino from late September thru early November. I've been getting ready with daily hikes, yesterday's resulting in 20+ mosquito bites. There's just something about me which attracts them. I've read posts from people noting that the auberge windows are sometimes left open...

    Car rental from Lourdes to SJPdP

    I will be flying into either PUF or LDE, and would like to take a day to visit Lourdes prior to starting the Camino in SJPdP. Does anyone know if there is a car rental agency which allows for a one-way rental from Lourdes to SJPdP? I discovered there is a car rental agency (Carrefour Market) in...

    Checked the “toe issues” threads... this one is not addressed (so far)

    Hi there! I’m so glad you posted this issue. I have the same problem after any long walk. Like you my 2nd toes aren’t any longer than the others, yet they are incredibly bruised and painful after hikes. Strangely it’s the tops of the nails down to the nail bed which are painful- even the thought...

    How to get from Santiago de Compostela to SJPdP

    I later discovered that TAP was offering incredible rates for open-jaw tickets. I ended up booking refundable tickets flying from the US to Orly, and then departing from SdC (layover in Lisbon) and returning to the US - for $450. The price increased a little when I opted for the refundable fares...

    How to get from Santiago de Compostela to SJPdP

    Thank you for the quick reply VNwalking! I'm not planning to go until spring 2021, and those are the airfares I'm looking at. This is why I'm setting aside the COVID issue for now. It's great to know there is an option.

    How to get from Santiago de Compostela to SJPdP

    TAP airline is running an incredible deal at this moment. I can book round-trip airfare from my home to SdC (RT) for $365 USD. Putting aside all the concerns about whether or not I'll be able to enter Europe due to COVID restrictions, I think this is a great deal worth gambling on. But since...

    Reservations for 2021

    Hi SusanH - would you mind sharing how you booked the few that you did? I've been looking online to book SJPP through Roncensvalles, but everything I'm finding online indicated there's no vacancies - which I'm interpreting as not willing to take bookings yet (they can't ALL be booked up already...

    Reservations for 2021

    Thank you trecile, David and pepi! I think you've convinced me to "trust the Camino". I am a solo walker, although I understand there'll be plenty of people to meet up with and discuss planning as I go. Trecile, that was a great suggestion for the luggage transfer with Correos. As it's the...

    Reservations for 2021

    Hi everyone - newbie forum member here! Like SusanH, I'm also planning to complete the full French route, but in mid April to May. Hopefully ending in time for Pentecost mass at the Cathedral. Not having done this before, like SusanH, I'm concerned about needing reservations. My first instinct...
