    safe to travel alone for female?

    Yes yes yes! I walked the Camino twice, always alone. In summer it was so busy that I never felt truly 'alone' but when I walked in winter this year, it was practically empty and I often walked on my own without seeing anyone all day. It was fine, I never felt worried or in danger, even when I...

    Those we leave behind

    It is difficult to be left behind when someone you love goes to do the Camino. When it happened to me, neither of us knew what to expect. I stayed behind and worried. And every time we spoke on the phone, I felt that we were in two separate worlds. If you haven't experienced the Camino then it...

    Which camino do you recommend for a first timer?

    Hi Laurie, I would recommend Camino Frances as well, and just like others, it is because of the infrastructure, smaller distances and widely available guide books and maps. I know that it being overcrowded can be an issue but, again, it depends on time of the year. I walked from St Jean to...

    What are the Do's and Don'ts of Albergue Etiquette?

    Great discussion! When I was walking this summer, the alberges were very busy, so I think we got all the possible don'ts :roll: However, I have to say that peregrinos are great people and anything that could potentially cause any problems seemed to be solved very quickly. I guess it's...

    Walking over the new year

    Hello Peregrinos! After walking part of the Camino earlier this year, I can't wait to walk again (when big decisions need to be taken, where else to go, no?). I have about 5 walking days available after Christmas and into the first week of 2012, so I could start a couple of days before Sarria...

    Where could I get a pilgrim's passport in Burgos?

    Thank you all for the advice - it's very helpful. I guess getting started is going to be the biggest thing. I hope that once I start walking, my feet will take me where I need to get ;-)

    Where could I get a pilgrim's passport in Burgos?

    Hello, I have two questions: Where in Burgos could I get a pilgrim's passport? I'm going to arrive in the afternoon on Saturday 30th July and will need to get a passport to be able to start my journey. Also, does anyone know if I'll be allowed to stay in an aulberge on my first night, before...

    I will have about 20 days to walk - where should I start?

    Thank you! I have to admit that the August heat is a bit of a worry for me but I'm sure that with the right clothing, I should be ok. I will take your advice to remember that if the worst comes to the worst I can always skip a segment. Burgos feels right to start - even though I haven't been...

    I will have about 20 days to walk - where should I start?

    Thank you for replying. I can get a flight to Valladolid and when I look at the map, I start thinking that starting in Burgos would be nice. I've heard that the cathedral is great. Just worried that it could be too far. A month or so ago, I walked from Santiago to Finisterre via Muxia. It was...

    I will have about 20 days to walk - where should I start?

    Hello Peregrinos, I will have only about 20 days to do the walk, which sounds like too little to start in St Jean. I was thinking about walking Camino Frances or any of the Northern Routes. Can you advise me where to start? Thank you!
