    Seeking full stage itinerary from SJPP to Finisterre

    If you have google maps, this may help. I made this map in stages with several accommodations at each stage.

    How do you manage to overcome your language learning laziness?

    Lots of different ways to learn. People are all different. Some learn faster by watching videos, others enrolling in a class, etc. My advice, commit yourself by spending a few bucks for an online intructor. Spending money on something, for me, is a great motivator! Good luck!! Peace. ✌️

    Ruta Del Mar !

    Great point! Depending on how I feel, I can have those longer Coastal stages as an option. Also, if I do a shorter Google stage, and take a day off. I can venture toward the coast and explore. I will definitely check out Magwood, thanks for the tip. ✌️😊

    Spanish teacher recommendations please

    I would highly recommend Pedro in Guatemala. He uses Skype. He’s been teaching for over 20 years. I am currently Skyping with him to brush up on Spanish for my Camino this coming April. Here is his email.

    Phones and the Frances

    I’m thinking about giving HOLAFLY a try. No phone number but it has cellular data and you can keep your original phone number and use WhatsApp. I tested it in the USA last week, unlimited cellular data for 5 days, $19. It worked like a charm. Several data options available.

    In Defense of Booking Com

    As A pilgrim, what I like about is that it’s easy to remember what you have booked without having to store a bunch of addresses and phone numbers. When I get close to the town where my accommodation is, I open it on and use the map to guide me in! 😊✌️

    Walking and Suffering

    I’m definitely no expert but use shoes with good tread ( as soon as the tread starts wearing out) you are more susceptible to injury). Also, replace factory inserts with good high arch inserts. I use Active Orthaheel (Amazon). Hope that helps some. Buen Camino.
