    all in one hair/body/face/clothing cleansing bar

    Hey all! It's been a while since I've been here (and five years since I walked the Camino, bah!) but I figure this would be the place to ask.

    Need to find pilgrims Helen and Marina from May 2007 Camino!

    Hey all! I haven't been here in a while, but I thought that maybe someone could help me. I walked the Camino Frances from April 23-May 28 2007, and I very much would like to find two pilgrims (who I met separately) that I met, and I've since lost their contact information. Any ideas as to how...

    distance per day question

    So, it seems like people walk different amounts each day, and take differnt amounts of time to walk the camino, which makes sense as people have different paces and different levels of fitness. However, it seems like the distance you walk is perhaps based on where the albergues are? If someone...

    musicial instruments?

    Hi! I will be hiking the CF starting the last week of April, and I am wondering what other dedicated musicians have done while hiking the trail. I am mainly a fiddle player but play just about every other stringed instrument, and have a hard time imagining 5 weeks without playing music (it is...
