    Big Dream - Your Favourites

    Hi Guy When I decided to walk Camino Frances, I also decided I will plan as little as is possible, and try to go with the flow. Even then this to me meant I know where I would be sleeping on the first night, place is booked, and I know all the intended stages of my walk, marked, highlighted...

    Pictures from Camino Ingles

    Hola Una There are a lot more hills to climb on Camino Frances than there are on Camino Ingles. There is really only one long day ie the stage from Betanzos to H. de Burma. Further Camino Ingles is a much shorter route than Camino Frances, and you can ease into the camino by having short...

    Christmas Camino

    Hola John and Robin, The Burgos Cathedral is well worth a visit. And they will give you a sello too. With the pilgrim passport entrance fee is also reduced. You could start the day with a visit to the cathedral, then continue the camino after, possibly making it a short walking day. Oh and...

    Christmas Camino

    Hey John and Robin Agree with Greg on Granon. It was one of the highlights of my walk too. Santo Domingo is a lovely place with excellent restaurantes. Can be loads of fun. But somehow Granon was special. The atmostphere around the communal dinning and the service after just wraps one up...

    Just home from Camino Ingles

    The walk was great. I had near perfect weather. I was expecting heavy showers, hail showers, and showers and showers but instead, I had blue skies for all the days (except one). I left for A Coruna on Dec 6 (Mon) with more than a 3 hr delay, due to weather conditions. The longer I had to...

    SNORING!! I am the Champion!

    If you can get your hands on a pair of ear plugs they give out at F1 races, it be great. The plugs mould themselves to your ear. If they can block the roaring cars, they can block the snorers! I am an insomniac. On bad days (regardless of reasons; snoring, light in the eye, etc), I just...

    Camino ingles Luggage Transfer

    I was recently walking on Camino Ingles and needed to forward extras to Santiago. The options seems to be (1) by taxi - expensive - 65 to 70 euros (2) by bus - someone will need to pick up the package and store it for you. (3) by post. Option (3) worked well for me. Cheap and safe. Cost me...

    learn to speak spanish or...

    This past camino, I had walked 3 full days with a Spanish who spoke not a word of English. And I know probably no more than 20 Spanish words. But those were not silent days. Conversation flowed continuously and somehow we understood each other. Whist it was an interesting experience, and I...

    SNORING!! I am the Champion!

    So true Renshaw. Once I had a snorer on the bed above me. And a very annoyed snore hunter on my other side across a narrow aisle. Snore hunter make very loud clicking lizzard like sounds hoping to wake up the snorer. When that failed, he reached out and shook the bed frame really hard...

    Is there a Catholic Priest on the forum?

    Hiking Shoes, or Hiking Boots?

    Karin, I have just been to your blog and saw the pics. Neat ! Something to keep in mind, especially if it rains a lot. Did you feet slide about in the shoes ? I had incredible problems with blisters when I walked last year. Tried the two socks thing. Was plastered from toe to toe, and...

    Hi Nino, I will be arriving in Ferrol on Dec 6, and starting out the next day, a week after you. We could compare notes on prep and packing if you wish. I have not walked in winter before, and am not used to winter conditions, living in the tropics all my life, and hence, am a little...

    I only know of the refuge run by the German Confraternity at La Faba, who also offer foot massages. And she (If I recall correctly, her name is Anita) is very good too.
