    Hi all - I've done the French Way in 2010 - successful and amazing!! I'm looking at doing the Vezelay Camino in 2016 and wonder if anyone else has done it in it's entirety in the one journey? I know it's about 60km longer than the French Way - that doesn't scare me - just interested in those...

    Hiking Shoes, or Hiking Boots?

    My boots were 1 size & half larger and were PERFECT! One thing I will mention, now I've got one Camino under my belt - a lot of hiking boots/shoes etc are quite generic to fit a myriad of feet however, they don't always have the best arch support!! Given the Camino has MANY MANY MANY MANY...

    Contaminated water fountain in the begining of the Meseta

    Yes but I'm not sure it was there! And I think maybe it was more a stomach bug than the water as it seemed to float through the group despite the water - but it's not a Camino without a stomach bug!! hehe I was violently sick from Mansilla and had to stop at the private Alburgue just 10km out...

    Hiking Shoes, or Hiking Boots?

    I've spent the money on buying 2 pairs of the Silver Thread Bionic x-socks - $55 per pair (Australian $) and SOOOO very worthwhile. Also with the boots CARN they're not the full high boots only just above the ankle bone. They have a wider front section so the toes are NOT squashed. I've done...

    Camino Heartbeat....

    Thanks Jeremy Unfortunately the Socceroo's didn't quite get their "steam" until too late - should've played their first game like they did against Serbia - might have been a totally different outcome now - oh well----roll on 2014!! :mrgreen: What state in Aust are you? How many days did it...

    Roncasvellas to Santiago in 28 - 29 days

    Camino Heartbeat....

    Hi Gitti It's really a matter of personal ideal - for me, I had a heart attack nearly 4 years ago, so my reason and drive to raise funds for heart research are quite personal - also depends on how much you want to raise as to your target audience and how much time you have personally to...
