    Trail Condition - before Molinaseca

    The first time a walked it, it was very difficult. So the second time I decided to stop in El Acebo, and stay at that mega-albergue/hotel. And the next day I walked it with no problem and started to think there was no need to stay in El Acebo. Not realizing I had the opportunity to be well...

    Bottom bunks

    I have the same issue of getting up in the middle of the night and going to the bathroom, etc. Getting to albuegues early is probably the only way to guarantee of getting one.

    LIVE from the Camino The French Way - NobleHiker Chronology

    As far as the eyeglasses go, I would advise you to keep them. You would not believe how many times I lost a pair of reading glasses or sunglasses on the Camino.
