    Spanish Language

    Hola! I am from Hong Kong and walked the camino last winter. Other than my native languages I could only speak English. I could get by with the 'frequent used word list' on the Brierley guide and had no problem ordering food, getting a place to sleep and even managed a few trips to the...

    What is the one Albergue that you would say not to miss

    +1 on Epinosa del Camino. Jose Mir was so nice to us, and the remarkable way to wake us up in the morning!

    After Santiago

    I finished CF on 15-Nov last month. I traveled around Spain and onto Paris, then Taize and Paris again to catch the returning flight. Big cities like Madrid and Barcelona are too noisy and crowded after spending 6 weeks on the camino. I find more peace at smaller towns/villages like Avila...

    Guide in English

    My Brierley guide was usually being passed around over dinner table for the info it has to offer. Feel free NOT to follow the stages and start/stop as and when you like. I also have a albergue list from the pilgrim office from SJPDP. Combining the guide and the list, i have sufficient info to...

    Looking for: Matt and Allison from Australia. Oct-Nov 2010

    Hi there! In my desperate attempt to find my friends on the camino, i'm writing this post. I met Matt and Allison on 11-Oct-2010 at the pilgrim office and we were loosely saying 'hi' and 'later' here and there, and we were kinda close, as there were not too many English-speaking pilgrims...

    Arriving at St Jean Pied de Port on 11-Oct

    @annie: i could not get a window seat on TGV while i made the booking last week, so i'll have to try my luck when i finally got onto it. i'm looking forward to the TER to SJPDP, though, as it seems very ancient: http://www.panoramio.com/photo/7751696

    Arriving at St Jean Pied de Port on 11-Oct

    Thanks for the pointers. I also just realised (10 minutes ago...) that Esprit du Chemin is already closed. I'm trying to get in touch with this as they have taken my reservation online all the way until i'm required to make payment: http://www.aubergedupelerin.com/ This is the only other...

    Arriving at St Jean Pied de Port on 11-Oct

    Hi! After much consideration I've decided to walk Camino Frances from St Jean to Santiago. I'm coming from Hong Kong and will be landing in Paris at 6am. I'll then catch the TGV to Bayonne, and upon arrival, ran to the next platform within 7 minutes to catch the TER to St Jean Pied de Port and...

    Camino del Norte in October

    Hi, I'm planning my camino in October (and maybe into early Nov, depends on when I could start). I"m deciding between Frances and Norte. I'd prefer the Norte as I would like more time on my own, as I've read that there are less pilgrim on the Norte. It's hard to find info on the Norte in Oct...
