    Just back from the Camino del Salvador

    You are right, I did not look at the date at all, sorry! I found Enders guide on his FB page, but in the form of a slideshow. Do you (or anyone else) know if there is a way to download it? Or is there another format there that I missed? I would like to take it with me on my phone, if possible...

    Just back from the Camino del Salvador

    Hola Peregrina2000, first of all thank you for the info! I have acouple of questions regarding your remark I quoted above, just to clarify it for me: - how would you say this information is better then the CSJ Salvador Guide: New Second Edition! that is posted by Rebekah? As the latter is in...

    Flight & bus ticket bought - a new adventure is about to start

    I will start a few days before you, and am not in a rush so I am sure you will fly by me at some point! Say hi when you do :D, you'll be able to recognise me by my orange crocs dangling at the back of my pack! ;-)

    First off, show no mercy and whack these creeps whenever wherever. And that from am far from a violent man... Second, I know from personal experience (yes guys too have these kind of experiences, mine was in a public toilet in Burgos, wont go into details ;-) that you are too flabbergasted to...

    Well, this thread put a downer on my anticipation! This September, I am (still) planning to go sock-less in sandals! And sleep outdoors some nights... Any buddies needing/doing a buddy check will be welcomed on my path!

    Is Spanish fluency essential on the Primativo?

    From what I've heard, September could be the nicest month weather wise! Having said that, layering options are always good! I'll be doing the Norte & probably Primitivo in September this year, and am still contemplating either my 3/4 pants or long ones... Dont like zipoffs... Other than that, I...

    A Great Experience

    Hi Mike, I will start my Norte late Aug/early Sept, and would love to have a coffee/beer (depending on time of day ;-) ), a talk and if you want, a walk together! How will I get in touch? Through the forum I suppose? Cheers, Martin

    All the alternative routes on the Norte - prepare or wing it?

    I will wing it, but at the same time intend to do as many alluring alternatives as possible. So I hope to stick to the coast a lot! I have no specific end date, and am carrying a sleeping bag, so I will wing it and sleep where and when I need to! ;-)

    All the alternative routes on the Norte - prepare or wing it?

    Thanks everyone! So I am just going to wing it! Though I will make sure I have the Gronze with me as well to fall back on (I found an app for my iPhone that stores offline webpages, called Offline Reader). And I will make a list of peoples favorite albergues, and will see on the road if they...

    All the alternative routes on the Norte - prepare or wing it?

    Hi guys & girls, I will be doing the Camino del Norte in September. I read quite a bit about all the alternative routes on the Norte. Do I need to prepare for this? I am inclined to just wing it and see, and use my hospitaleros as information sources (though I will be sleeping outside at...

    Rain gear Norte-Primitivo!

    Tried gaters once but wasnt impressed. I have a raincoat, that will be my only raingear. In case of rain I will wear my sandals and get wet feet, they will dry at some point.A very very experienced walker (Toek) told me: wet feet are not the end of the world! (it is all in the mindset) I am...

    Camping along the way

    I just love this forum... Thanks for all the info guys, I'll take it with me when I go do the Norte in September! I will carry a lightweight sleeping bag & bivy bag for clear nights and/or nights with full albergues. I hope to share my experiences in a few months. To be honest the stray dogs...

    Do I really need a tent?

    This thread basically informed me that in july and august you might encounter full albergues, but that the hospitaleros usually have backup options so you are almost always ok... SO I woud say dont take a...

    Best Camino del Norte Guidebook

    Do people have any experience with either the book by Paco Nadal, or with just using the Gronze online info? I have the Paco Nadal one photographed on my phone, and I might download the gronze as well if that is better. I wonder if I need to do/bring any more than that? (except for making a...
