    What happened to Forum member Alexwalker?

    Hey Alex, we've never met, but I really enjoy your input on the forum, your personality shows through. We are the same age and yes, I also faint and fall from time to time, it's rather bizarre how if happens. I wonder for myself now, the safety of travelling alone, but I seem to be my best...

    My first Camino

    Have a great Camino. Booking ahead has some real advantages, as you say that detail is taken care of so you can take your time, absorb your surroundings, take it all in. Be kind, say hello to the locals, breath, walk with an open heart, take care of your feet, take pictures, look back to where...

    Portuguese Camino

    Somewhat relevant question. Are there accommodations to support 15 to 20 km days between Tomar and Coimbra? We are an old (late 60s) group of 3 wishing to start in Tomar and my research (Gronze) doesn't come up with a lot of options. The first day would be 31.7 km, ouch, too much of a challenge...

    You won't be solo for long, there will be other solo travelers looking for friendship. Enjoy every bit of your travels, it will be fine.

    Being "called" by The Way?

    And after my first Camino I realized what Bob Dylan meant by "I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now".

    Being "called" by The Way?

    Ahh the calling. Soon to come, the obsession, haha, and welcome to the life of the Camino. I like to suggest to the new found Caminoers that your Camino has started, the walking part just comes later. Enjoy every moment of your journey, from the prep, the training, the research, the travel and...

    Rail Europe Help

    If leaving from CDG you must search 2 links, one from CDG to Bayonne and the 2nd from Bayonne to St Jean Pied de Port. For some reason the website won't find CDG to St Jean PdP, too many connections maybe. And you don't need much time to make connections in Bayonne.

    Bravo! Buen Camino

    You are able to leave the trail and head home any time, nobody can stop you. There are buses all along the trail that can get you to an exit point and to your return flight, it just may cost you some for the change. But, have faith. I walked the Camino Frances 2 years ago, to be honest I found...
