    Meseta: Etapas? Nice private rooms?

    I’m having difficulty at the beginning of all places. Roncevalles & Zubiri. I figured if I can at least book the first two, then I can reserve as I go. I’m using Gronze & Ivar’s guide book from 2020. I just may not be as tech savvy as I need. I did find one in Espinal near Roncesvalles. It’s...

    Meseta: Etapas? Nice private rooms?

    It seems you garnered some interesting places. My question to you is I’m also in need of a private room for the Frances. Been checking Gronze & Bookings and the prices listed are not what is being charged. They are much higher. Are you finding the same?

    Washing socks with Vaseline buildup

    Hi Janice, applied every morning between toes, bottom & top of feet. If need be, one could reapply during a break. Body Glide was my savior. I have mentioned this to other friends who walked after me. They & their feet thanked me.

    best hotel in palas de rei?

    In September my wife & I stayed at Casa Camino in Palas de Rei. A bit off the Camino, but the most comfortable beds & gracious hosts on the Camino. In Arzua, we stayed at Casa Brandariz. Excellent Casa, great food & they provide transportation. Best of luck.
