    Crossing the Sierra de Guadarrama; Madrid to Segovia vs Toledo to Ávila

    Hi all, Was glancing over the maps and thought about the possibility of extending the CdM to Toledo, but apparently this isn't a great idea due to having to navigate Madrid's (and Getafe etc) infrastructure.

    Finistere (FR) to Fisterra (ES)

    Hi everyone I am currently planning out my first camino, the CF. In trying to plan how I would get to SJP from Ireland, I considered the ferry to Roscoff, and from there started thinking about going from Finistere to Fisterra as a nice way to bookend things, first by public transport but then...

    Poll CdM vs CdF for a first timer in march.

    Hi everyone First of all, thanks for the body of knowledge you've build up over the years, it's been very helpful. I'm planning my first camino, and the default recommendation (taste in geography aside) for a long camino seems to be the Frances (from Zaragoza with Finisterre). But I notice...
