    Pamplona to SJPP Bus

    The seasonal bus from Pamplona to St. Jean is running starting April 1st (or sooner?) This is a good choice for those who land /arrive in Madrid and can take either bus from the airport to Pamplona or a train (airport connections) to Pamplona. A very easy way to get to SJPP.

    Departures from St. Jean Pied de Port?

    Are there stats from the Pilgrim Office in SJPP regarding the daily or weekly registrations? Do we know the estimate of the number walking to Roncesvalles (Orrisson) each day in the summer?

    Littoral Route from Porto info

    I may just be missing it in the fog of threads and posts....but is there a discussion of the Littoral Route that sticks to Littoral without the Coastal discussion? It is often a confusing mix of routes. Is there a dedicated guide or a proper Littoral section in another guide? I did walk it in...

    Susan Dawes (Australia?)

    This message was just posted on the American Pilgrims Facebook Site. Perhaps someone will know how to reach her. Her wallet was found in Pamplona. "Hola peregrinos, if anyone of you who is walking on the Camino now knows Susan Dawes (from Australia?), please tell her that she had left her...

    A couple of questions.....

    When walking in Spain, I always send a box or small suitcase on to Ivar when I arrive in Spain. This is for "after Camino" clothes as we usually hang around Europe for a bit after arriving in Santiago. Does anyone have experience or a suggestion as to how this would be handled in Rome? I am...

    Winter Bedbugs

    I just completed a mid January Camino Frances. It was my 3rd or 4th walk on the CF and ninth Camino overall. I have walked in March, April, May, June, July, August, September and October. I had never seen a bedbug or been in a albergue or hotel/pension that reported them except for one time...

    Luggage to Ivar from St. Jean ??

    I need to post an "after Camino" suitcase on to Ivar in Santiago. I arrive in Paris and will drag it along to SJPdP. The suitcase is needed as we are (as usual) doing a bit of after Camino traveling. This is about 13 January so the level of service will be curtailed. I usually send a small...

    Train Paris to SJPdP in January

    I am now having a problem seeing any train from Paris (CDG) through to St. Jean on 13 January. It was there a short time ago but I can not get the schedule to show now. It simply says there is no service. I am wondering if this is a winter thing....but it did show before for 13 January. I need...

    Memorial Shells for Denise....

    Many of us are planning to carry a second shell on our Caminos in Memory of our sister Peregrina, Denise, to complete the journey she was denied. The idea is to carry the second shell, with her name on it, to Santiago or pass it on to someone who is continuing from your stopping point. For...

    January on the Camino Frances

    I am starting to consider a January walk on the CF. I did the Via de la Plata in mid August a couple of years ago to cross that off my bucket list....now winter on the CF seems to be a reasonable next step.:) One of my reasons is that I have walked the CF several times and really enjoy it....but...
