    RIP Megumi Shiozawa

    Orthotics for Morton's Neuroma

    Hi - I empathize with your situation. 3 weeks b4 my first Camino last year i developed a miserable and paralyzing neuroma in my left foot. I immediately saw my podiatrist who recommended a shoe with a 6mm drop from heal to toe and not an ankle boot as the pressure around the ankle was also...

    Seeking advice from multi-camino peregrinos for a mid Oct start

    [ Hi hel&scott - this makes me laugh as the truth is - no, i don’t really know what I’m doing - I’m just trying to do and not just dream! I may have gotten lucky on the first go round so I have a bit of trepidation around this next one especially knowing the season is getting on and the...

    Seeking advice from multi-camino peregrinos for a mid Oct start

    Thanks all I appreciate your input! Lots of options to consider.... Maybe even Lisbon to SdC & the Finisterre loop again given the time. Lovely quandary to be in but a quandary nonetheless. Will see if I can make something a reality...

    Seeking advice from multi-camino peregrinos for a mid Oct start

    Thanks VNwalking - all good options. The first which you recently did, how many days approx? My sweetspot for distance is closer to 20 - 28K a day - closer to 30K and I turn into mush.. can do it but don't enjoy it. I have a similar map as my screen saver and it does inspire!!!

    Seeking advice from multi-camino peregrinos for a mid Oct start

    Hello all you veteran peregrinos! I walked my first Camino from Lourdes to 'The end of the earth' last Sept / October... like many, I've caught the bug! Thank you to all who post such sage advice and keep the humor going on this awesome forum. Now my question: I may have the opportunity to...

    Walking stick

    I adored my Pacer Poles. I had regular poles before and these are hands down better for hand fatigue and the extra boost up some of the steep hills not to mention descending.... and added bonus is that both my arms and back became much stronger during the hike. In addition they collapsed to a...

    LIVE from the Camino Waiting for Pilgrims in Grañón

    Wishing you traveling mercies and a wonderful stay. Finished my first Camino in October and loved the albergue at Granon, it was special. Two women traveling with their donkey were staying there as well and made delicious pasta while the rest of us prepared sides and salads. It was very...

    Two wonderful albergue recommendations — Ledigos and Hospital de Orbigo

    Forgive me Morgan but in what village is your second recommendation? It may be the lovely and inclusive wine I enjoyed at my delicious vegetarian meal in Logroño- (whilst not a vegan... the bocadillos and jamon, queso y huevos were becoming a bit toooo mainstream... ) anywho, I derail myself...

    Beilari Albuergue SJPDP

    I do not often post but want to say that my experience there, just last week for 2 nights, was delightful. Joseph the owner is very accommodating - I found the cook a bit abrupt but dismissed it as stress- I’m so sorry about your experience but I do think it is an anomaly and not the norm...
