    Any advice on getting walking poles in Leon? Borrow not buy.

    I guess this shows that using the pronoun 'their' can be of benefit!

    Any advice on getting walking poles in Leon? Borrow not buy.

    It is obvious from his original post that he has done at least one previous Camino. Further on he says he wouldn’t dream of going poleless. I am therefore assuming this decision was based on experience and not because someone told him he should.

    Any advice on getting walking poles in Leon? Borrow not buy.

    I believe we have wandered from the thread of this post which is about the availability of poles in Leon. I don’t understand why people feel the need to comment on whether poles are needed on the Camino. These comments are nothing to do with the original post and can make people feel judged.

    Parador resumes the “free meal” tradition

    I’d be interested to hear your definition of riff raff

    How do you "relieve yourself" when a toilet is not available?

    I agree, a little more understanding from some on this thread would be appreciated

    How do you "relieve yourself" when a toilet is not available?

    This is me exactly and I totally agree, how do you ‘train’? It takes an hour of walking to get things moving for me, and once they are on the move I need to go now! No amount of sitting on the loo and straining will produce results, and is medically inadvisable anyway. We just all need to do the...

    How do you "relieve yourself" when a toilet is not available?

    I totally understand the point of the thread and Trecile’s post. I agree with sentiments expressed. I always use bar or cafe facilities and I always purchase something. Trecile was baffled and I was just commenting, maybe my reply didn’t appear as polite as I intended. I can sometimes get one...

    How do you "relieve yourself" when a toilet is not available?

    Then you are very lucky. The time may come, as it did with me, when you don’t have as much control over the frequency or urgency of the call of nature as you would like.

    LIVE from the Camino Primitivo - Sep 5, 2022

    I will be interested to see how you go off stage. I want to do shorter days which would mean going off stage sometimes but it doesn’t appear to be as easy to do that as on Frances

    Volunteering as a Hospitalera

    I did that training in Melbourne Australia in February 2020 and was going to organize a trip in April or May the same year. Well, we all know what happened then! I hope to try again in April or May next year. The training was great and one of the resources we were given was a number of...

    Why you should walk a camino

    I was wondering how you went after your rest in Astorga. Well done, so happy you made it. 😊 And it was lovely to actually see you both.

    Why you should walk a camino

    Thank you so much! I didn’t take a photo for some reason so I am very happy to have this one. I would very much like to add it to my blog, even though it’s 8 years ago. Do I need to request permission from the owner, or is it enough that I acknowledge where the photo came from?

    Why you should walk a camino

    Oh yes, the chocolate shop on the plaza! Astorga is also the place I bought trekking sandals because of my blisters. I have loved them ever since!

    Why you should walk a camino

    I am not at all surprised! We stopped at Astorga for a couple of days on two separate caminos because of my blisters. The first time I had blisters that had been brewing for some time and I got them treated. The second time I had been going so well and I made the mistake of commenting about it...

    Why you should walk a camino

    I hope your daughter finds something to encourage her. The saying helped us through the not so great days when it would have been easy to wallow in misery!
