    LIVE from the Camino Just cleared customs in Paris from the US

    I think it is just that, they are being processed by date of arrivel. I don't think it is a coincidence that in the Subject line of your email, you are asked to type in your date of arrival. I arrive on the 30th of August, so I am expecting to hear from them in a day or two. With that being...

    LIVE from the Camino Just cleared customs in Paris from the US

    Thank you for the info/update. Planning to start the Le Puy route on September 3rd, so any info, no matter how trivial about your walk will be greatly appreciated. Also I believe the words vacation and vaccination are related. Good luck. Bon Chemin. Mark

    2020 CF. Since i had walked 20 miles from Burgos to Hontanas, the next couple of days were short in comparison. A year ago today, it was Itero de Vega to Fromista, about 10 miles.

    2020 CF Burgos to Hontanas. As per the previous post the alburgue in Hornillos was closed. Walked 20miles/32kms.

    Ages to Burgos. Arriving at the alburgue, there was a sign stating that the Municipal alburgue in Hornillos del Camino was closed (more on that tomorrow). Attended Mass at the cathedral for the Feast of St Blaise, but they did not do a blessing of the throats.

    On this date in 2020, I believe it was Belorado to Ages. It was intended to be Belorado to San Juan Ortega, but the municipal alburgue was closed, so it was onto Ages. I was thinking of stoping in Villa Franca de Montes de Oca, both alburgues were closed and I could not find a pension open, so I...

    While you're not doing anything else ... help identify this church!

    I found this answer! And it was right if front of our eyes: look at the closing credits. Stay with me here. First and foremost, I have never seen the film. Looking through the comments, there is an agreement that camino scenes were not filmed in sequence, etc. and the movie was not entirely...
