    Walking the 'Pilgrims Way' as a prelude to Camino Ingles

    I plan on walking the Pilgrim's Way from Winchester to Canterbury in the spring of 2018. On of the ladies with our party wonders if there is a transport service for her back pack like there is on the Camino de Santiago. Would you know who I could ask?

    Why start in St. Jean?

    I am a little sentimental reading all this talk. One year ago today I started my one and only Camino - from SJPP. I chose it because what little I knew then of the Camino had to do with the movie "The Way." Perhaps my Camino really started on 4-13-16 as I walked from my home in San Diego and...

    Beehive wine observation huts

    Does anyone know what the beehive huts in La Rioje were made for? I got that terminology from Brierley's book, but does wine need observation?) Who made them? When? I can't seem to find information on them on the internet. This photo was taken between Los Arcos and Logrono. Thanks.

    LIVE from the Camino Second week on the Camino May 2016

    Angie:I just got back from my first Camino. I remember some of your early posts when you were first training. I didn't even think to post on the forum when I was there, if I had it might have been easier. I had very little anxiety about being alone,walking alone or just getting around. (I also...

    I leave in 9 days. Last minute decisions for an overthinker!

    Hi Stephen: I just returned frommy first Camino. This forum helped me immensely in preparing for the Camino. I listened carefully to those who went before me and were more experienced, Most of the time their advise was right on - especially about what to take. One thing that took me totally by...

    To the April fools,

    I am not sure if I qualify but I just got home - did SJPP to Santiago 4/14-5/22. A wonderful experience but physically harder than I expected though I trained very hard. Cold, wet, muddy,challenging and rewarding. I was told it would get easier but I am not sure if ever did.

    Feeling rather irritated....

    Well thanks to all of you above that commented. My backpack was NOT fitted correctly. This is the third time I have gone to REI complaining, but this time instead of a man fitting me it was a woman. (This is not a complaint, just explaining) This time, because she WAS a woman, she actually...

    Feeling rather irritated....

    I wonder what is correct - they are as tight as I can make them and there is a still a space between my shoulders and the straps. But . . . I am going to REI this morning, we'll see what they say. Thanks for your post.

    Feeling rather irritated....

    Thanks again for those suggestions - I'll see what may apply, like do I really need my head lamp?

    Feeling rather irritated....

    Debrita: Thank you for taking the time to write such an informative post. 1. I actually just started trying to wear my backpack a little lower than my waiste and I haven't noticed an improvement yet. But I have only done this for the last 2 days. I think I may only have one more walking day...

    Feeling rather irritated....

    Angie: Thank you for your post and opening up such an interesting discussion. I leave in 5 days and have been walking all week with my backpack fully packed for the Camino. (I have been training for 4 months with this pack carrying about 15-17 lbs including water) Now that I have it packed it...

    Our Spring Camino set...

    I arrive on the 13th at SJPP and hope to be on the trail on the 14th. Maybe my path will cross with someof you. I am a slow walker by temperment and skill.
