    Guidebook for Camino del norte

    I recently finished the Frances using John Brierley’s guide which I thought was excellent. I’m interested in the Norte and Primitivo but see that Brierley does not have a guide to these. I bought one from Cicerone but do not like it. Any suggestions on a good guide for the Norte and Primitivo?

    Euro budget needed for food on Frances

    I am wondering what is a daily budget for food on the Frances? I'm also wondering if most restaurants of the type where you sit down for your big meal of the day typically take credit cards or is it recommended that you bring enough Euros for all dining? Many thanks, Cynthia

    SIM card or Monthly International Plan with Verizon

    I am traveling from US to Spain for 7 weeks for the Camino. I use Verizon cell service at home. They have an international plan I can add for $100/30 days that gives me 250 talk minutes & 5 gb of data. I am wondering whether to do that or to get a SIM card for Spain which I have no experience...

    Euros - how many to take for the Camino Frances?

    I wonder how many Euros to start the journey with and how to obtain them on the journey. We are doing the Frances route and notice some accommodations take Euros only and no credit cards. Thank you.
