    Transport Options on the Meseta

    I believe there is a bus from Carrion de los Condos to Leon. There certainly was one taking us there (to Carrion) from Leon so I imagine you could jump on that bus to go to Leon.

    'Addiction'- an appropriate word for wanting to walk the Camino again (& again)?

    Does it matter what whether you call it an obsession or an addiction or intense ongoing love affair or .....? Enjoy it. If you keep doing it and not enjoying it, then dont do it. If you cant stop and you hate it then get some help to do something else. The pathologising of an activity often...

    Photo Book

    I'm halfway thru a Camino photo book using Albumworks. Seems easy to use . Im putting in the days route from the guide and divided photos into nature, walking, churches, villages and other odds and ends like storks. It's a lot of fun and includes commentary which my wife wrote along the way plus...

    'Addiction'- an appropriate word for wanting to walk the Camino again (& again)?

    There Are so many people with so many experiences related to so many terms and words, it is ridiculous in my view to try to take all these into account when writing or speaking.

    Seniors on the Camino

    Why define yourself by age? Be friendly, helpful and kind and see what happens. My wife and I finished walking from Carrion a few weeks ago and had a blast. I talked with whoever was interested. Some wanted to move on and some didn’t.

    Yellow arrows through Leon

    Well, it seems I need to look out for some volunteers as I'm coming into Leon and get a map from them. A couple of landmarks are the Cathedral and the Parador San Marcos. Thanks everyone

    Yellow arrows through Leon

    Thanks everyone - we feel much more confident now. The generosity of spirit from pilgrims is alive and well. We have been walking around the northern suburbs of Melbourne for about 5 months now and can't wait to hit the road. Buen Camino !

    Yellow arrows through Leon

    Hi the end of May my wife and I will be heading off from Carrion to walk to Santiago. We want to walk through Leon. I'm a little concerned that the yellow arrows might be missing or hard to find in the city environment . Is that the case? and also, how long does it take to walk...
