    LIVE from the Camino 3 days on the Asturias/Viejo - Pamplona to Salvatierra

    I'm really interested in this, thanks for all the information. I would need three days to walk the distance you have covered but it sounds like there are some places along the way so it might be possible.

    London to Santiago best route?

    Hello, I walked from home ( south London) to Santiago a few years ago . I walked to Portsmouth and took the ferry to Cherbourg. I then followed Le Chemin de Mont St Michel to Mont St Michel and from there the Voie des Plantaganets from Mont St Michel to Aulnay where it joined the route from...

    Maremma sheep dogs on VF

    Hello, I have completed the first part of my pilgrimage now from Rome to Colle Val d'Elsa and thought I would report back since I started this thread. I am pleased to say I had no problems with any dogs. It is the least I have been barked at on a pilgrimage for ages! There were a few barking...

    LIVE from the Camino Via di Francesco 🇮🇹

    There were loads of dogs when I did it too, mostly barking from behind a fence although some did run out and bark at me. I'm scared of dogs so that wasn't fun. Despite this it was a wonderful pilgrimage and one of my favourites.

    LIVE from the Camino Chemin du Mont-Saint-Michel (Ouistreham)

    I walked on les chemins de mont st Michel in 2014, from Cherbourg on my way to Santiago. I got maps off their website, there wasn't really any signage. I stayed with a religious community in Genets and then walked across the sand to the island. What an amazing experience! Im looking forward to...

    LIVE from the Camino Via di Francesco 🇮🇹

    42 km in one day!! There is no way I could do that, you must be super fit. I had a bit of trouble with accomodation on this section even though I had booked before I left home. The B&B near Poggio San Lorenzo cancelled the evening before but I stayed in another B&B a little further on. For the...

    LIVE from the Camino Via di Francesco 🇮🇹

    Thank you for this, it's really interesting. I walked the way of st Francis a few years ago but when I got to Rieti it snowed so heavily I had to just take the train to Rome 2018 (I think). I came back later to finish it off. I don't think you will have that problem! I visited Greccio from...

    Rain Pants/DIY- Rain Kilt /Skirt made from a big black plastic bag- Cheap and Light

    Hi, I walk in a skirt which sits just above my knees. When it rains I put on my atlas poncho. I found with heavy rain, especially if windy the bottom of the skirt got wet and gradually soaked upwards which wasn't very pleasant. I have solved this issue with a large safety pin. When the rain...

    Curious about your VF experiences

    I didn't see many signposts in France, I used the GPS route off the VF website and made up my own way using minor roads. I had Alison Raju's book too. There were some signs in Italy but nothing like the Caminos in Spain. So a guidebook and GPS will definitely help

    Curious about your VF experiences

    Hello, I walked the VF in stages from the UK from 2017 to 2020 . I didn't meet any pilgrims on my first stage in France from Calais to Chalons en Champagne and only one who I met a couple of times on the next part to Lausanne. There were about 6 of us going over the St Bernard Pass which was...

    Maremma sheep dogs on VF

    You have certainly had some nasty encounters with dogs! I certainly won't be going for any walk in Albania. I've not even thought about bears or wolves I presume they are in remoter areas. Thank you for your encouragement, I was seriously considering hanging up my hiking stick for good. I...
