    Volunteering as a Hospitalera

    Hm, no, actually a discussion about that is not really necessary, I think. I know what I like and you know what you like. There's no need to agree on one, on? The awesome thing is, there is something for everyone out there. The Catolizism debate is a bigger issue. But probably not he right...

    Volunteering as a Hospitalera

    Thank you @Gerard Griffin, I totally agree with you. I love walking the camino, but I never understoood why it has to be such a serious and rigid thing. I would rather pay 10-15 Euros per night for a private albergue and have the freedome to get up when it suits me, than being in a place that...

    Volunteering as a Hospitalera

    Probably there are. But the question is: How find them? All the websites and groups I found so far, are about these public or christian or donativo albergues, where the volunteer is asked to work all day.

    Volunteering as a Hospitalera

    Thank you all for your comments and feedback about your experience! This has helped me a lot in my decision. I already have done 3 caminos myself and have met a lot of volunteers. Thank you for your great work! I traveled the world by being a volunteer (Workaway and Woofing) and that were the...

    Volunteering as a Hospitalera

    Thank you so much for sharing your experience. That sounds rough. I hoped it was more like with other volunteer oportunities (Work Away or Woofing), where you work 20-25 hours per week and can enjoy the rest your time..I guess, that's not for me then..

    Volunteering as a Hospitalera

    Hi everyone, as all the other threads on this topic are quite old, I thought I would start a new one with several questions on volunteering: 1) In General, how many hours is a hospitalero/volunteer expected to "work"? Half a day? Full day? Would one be able to work 3-4 hours per day in their...

    Accommodation issues (a warning)

    @LTfit @Rocco @Peter Isherwell It seems you are the right guys to ask for this: If on your camino you see a nice albergue that needs a volunteer/hospitalera in August, please let me know! For some health condition, I can't walk this year (my plan was the Camino del Norte), but I at least wanna...

    Via de la Plata in reverse (Gijón to Cádiz)

    I did the Camino Portuguese in November 2013 and it was a disaster. Wouldn't do it again. I got lost a million of times and in November I hardly met other pilgrims to ask for the way. And the people in the villages had no idea I'm talking about when I asked them. But I wasn't prepared, had no...

    Which camino fits to my criteria?

    I just checked it and yes, I think, it's too steep for me. It' also rainig a lot there next week. Right now I'm reading about the route Via Augusta Cadiz-Sevilla, 170 km. Still warm, flat, and it seems to go through a national park or something similar. No Albergues, but hostels etc.... Edit...

    Which camino fits to my criteria?

    Haha, thank you, but I'm from Germany and I really don't wanna go back there, the wheather kills me...And yes, we do have a lot of places with forest in Spain, too. Maybe not the hugest forest on earth, But I remember to walk through forest on other caminos (Frances, Portugues, even on the Via...

    📹If it was me, I would not walk the Camino in September

    How about walking now? Are the albergues open? is it too crowded on the Camino Frances? I don't need to enter big cities (nor Santiago), but I need to walk in the nature for a week or so...And I don't need to fly, as I live in Spain... TIA

    Which camino fits to my criteria?

    Well, I was there in 2013, it was very crowded by young party people in groups. I have no idea how it is now. Thank you!

    Maybe this category is not the best for my post? But I didn't find anything that would fit.

    Hello everybody, I just discovered this forum and I'm super happy to be able to talk to you guys! Thank you for beeing here! I'm asking you for recommendations, as I don't know, where to walk: I would like to walk in October for a week or two in the nature. As I already did 3 different caminos...
