    How to transport backpacks

    Everyone need to so the Camino their own way. It's about the journey, not the miles or how many kilos you carry. Shouldn't make people feel inferior if they need a transport. There are all sorts of injured, disabled or elderly who need options. This is intended for anyone, no judging!!🙏😍

    LIVE from the Camino Transport service Baamonde to Sobrado on Norte

    Many albergues are OPEN. I did not stay in a single one that was full.....most had plenty of space except for local tourist areas like Zarautz, Santanilla. Most pilgrims booked the night before without problem. Most places accepting touchless payment with gpay or applepay...I rarely use cash...

    Revolut instant debit card for intl use

    You can order a free plastic Revolut as well. I am truly amazed how many shops take contactless payment for ANY amount. Cash no longer king but you still need a bit for laundry, tips, entry fee for touristy stuff, etc

    New digital Credential is introduced from the Cathedral. There's an app for that!!! But I think the albergue has to digitize their stamp..they can do it at the website link above. Otherwise we are still stuck with manual stamps
