    Taxis, insurance & money questions

    I had blood in my urine and went to a local clinic which told me I had to go to a bank and pay a medical fee before they would even see me. Then the clinic told me that they don't do tests on site, and the results would not come back for many days. I then went to what appeared to be a small ER...

    Early morning coffee

If you are using the Brierley book, the maps will show a tiny coffee cup, to indicate a cafe bar Along the way. Bring a headlamp--you will need it to see the Camino...

    Not what I expected!

    Storage in Albergues?

    I don't think I've ever been to an albergue that didn't have lockers to store stuff. I always wear hiking zip off pants with pockets--so I always keep my passport, cash, and money on me at ALL times.

    Rest days

    I see you are starting in SJPP. If you don’t hike a lot, including ascents and descents, I would highly recommend staying overnight at Orrison.It only takes about 3 1/2 hours (so you may want to leave SJPP around 11 am, but the next day may take up to 7 hours. Otherwise you may really hurt for...

I too walk a lot a lot at work but even then, pounding my feet for about 7 hours a day on the camino gave me plantar fasciitis--it got so bad that even...
