    Trail markers from 2001

    Thank you! I wasn't sure if the concrete markers had colour-you've answered my question. Yes, it was well-marked, yet I still managed to get lost on two occasions! 😄

    How much did you spend and what was the total cost of your Camino Frances, start to finish?

    Trail markers from 2001

    Thank you for that. I walked in February 2001 and for the life of me can only remember the arrows and not what the stone markers looked like. Pre-digital camera days definitely made for fewer photos!

    Traveling from western Canada - how far in advance do you book your flights?

    Exactly what happened to us with Air Canada in June. They cancelled our flight and gave us one 24 hours later, but with an alternate, longer route.

    Crowding on the Camino Francés?

    Way too overwhelming to book beds/rooms (mid july - mid August, frances)

    We've been on the camino for 10 days now and haven't had to book ahead anywhere. A great tool is the camino ninja app. Lists distances, all the albergues and their contact details. Seems to be the app of choice with everyone we meet. Buen camino!

    Alert Camino closed in Navarra for 2 days

    The police went from town to town on Sunday telling pilgrims to stay where they were or take the bus to Logrono. We did and on Monday took the bus, it was a pleasant walk from Logrono to Navarette.

    Polling Fellow Walkers - Start in SJPP or Pamplona?

    Why not start in Roncesvalles? An easy trip from Pamplona and you start the trail with a beautiful mass.
