    Angela from OZ and her graffiti

    The person who vandalized the length of the CF (Angela) is not the victim. The camino and the pilgrims following her are the victims. I am confused why the outcry to protect her from the consequences of her actions.

    Angela from OZ and her graffiti

    It would be interesting if other concerned Oz members were to write letters of concern to the Melbourne newspaper. It would raise the level of interest by the editors and lead to a bit more coverage. I am not usually a fan of public shaming .....but make an exception in this case.

    Would you stop at places that lack the Camino hospitality?

    Consider the bar owner with 100,000 people walking past his door. Not all are considerate. Many are demanding and destructive. Many steal the toilet paper and form lines that block actual customers Are they obligated, as "hospitality", to give of time and money to those who do not return the...

    Camino for Charity - Good Idea or Not?

    The thread has been re-opened for now ... provided that posters refrain from posting references or links to causes or charities. They will be deleted. The OP discussion concerns the question of whether walking for a cause changes the dynamics of a Camino. Please keep the discussion in that area.

    Teens - I’m Disheartened and Grouchy

    Annie...Annie...Annie. You need some rest. It would not be right to delete the thread and lose all of those profound remarks.. It might offend someone.

    Teens - I’m Disheartened and Grouchy

    I had an equally bad experience at the often recommended hostel Triana in Sevilla. These were young adults..not school kids. Constant high noise level party all night and was still at high pitch when I left to start the VdlP at 6am. The young guy on the desk said that it was normal.

    Backpack in airline holds

    Be sure you have a contingency plan as to what you will do if your checked pack does not arrive with you. Sadly..there are many reports of this happening despite the posts that say.."I checked mine and they didn't lose it.." It happens ...and if it does you should have a plan about any...

    Would you still walk the Camino if you could not access the Internet ?

    My first Camino was before smart phones. No texting. I did take an old phone for emergency but never used it. Coin operated computers...that took coins very efficiently but internet and email was dreadful.

    Coastal route in August!

    "Thank so much! I see two guides which one would you suggest? " I will probably take the new Wise Pilgrim guide in late August on the Litoral way in late August. The Portuguese caminos are truly confusing. The Litoral route stays close to the sea and shares some of the route with the Coastal...

    Angela from OZ and her graffiti

    Sadly...I seriously doubt that any of the vandals read this forum. These serious expressions of outrage are only seen by those of us who are equally outraged.

    Coastal route in August!

    Wise Pilgrim has an excellent new guide of the Portugese routes. Ivar carries both guides in the Forum Store. https://www.santiagodecompostela.me/

    Angela from OZ and her graffiti

    Gently.....the point was made and most posters have agreed with the OP. Be very careful of making accusations or statements.
