    What is the one Albergue that you would say not to miss

    The nicest albergue I stayed in was in Arzua - Albergue Via Lactea. It's a private one run by the most amazing folks. They even put roses in the dorms and the loo's and had bowls of sweeties for pilgrims!! Very clean and modern. The absolute worst one was Albergue Bono (Municipal) in Sarria...

    GNATS & FLIES

    Hello there I see Falcon mentioned gnats in a recent reply to a new walker. Quick question - are there gnats and flies along the way in late September through October? If so, are they annoying enough to warrant a head net? Thanks in advance for your help. Jane

    The Penitent Pilgrim

    Hi there As I count down the days to the start of my camino, my mind has gone into overdrive and some rather curious questions have been raising their heads. :twisted: I've jotted my thoughts down in a blog - if you're interested in reading it click on this link : http://tinyurl.com/43ed6rx...

    After the Camino

    Thank you everyone for your thoughts. I guess it all boils down to the fact that you are doing the Camino for yourself alone - not for your friends or family. And yes, I guess it is odd walking so far when you're supposed to be on holiday. It's just so nice to plug into this Forum and chat...

    After the Camino

    Hello everyone I will start walking the Camino with my son on the 21st September (yippee!!) I’ve been training all year, on beautiful quiet country roads and going camping to remote places so that I can walk quiet paths in safety. Along the way I’ve meditated and encountered the most amazing...

    Booked Ryan Air - Boarding Pass Printing

    Hello there I have booked a flight out of Santiago on Ryan Air, but I will need to print my own boarding pass. Is there somewhere convenient in Santiago where this can be done? If they print for me at the airport it will cost me another E40.00 (practically more than my flight cost!) :(...

    Trail Mantra

    I love this topic as I am mad about mantras - I use them every day. I will be walking in September and I have bought myself the Brierley guidebook, which I see has a section for reflections every day. I have written down a small mantra and a prayer for each day in this section, which I will...

    Feel the fear and do it anyway

    Hi everyone I’ve read many threads about people who have fears about doing the Camino – about the distance, their fitness and ability, etc. Would you mind if I share a little story with you, that may inspire others who are feeling fearful? As a young girl I was in a very bad car accident that...
