    What to read on the Camino?

    Terry Pratchett - but that is the default answer when people ask what to read ;)

    Most effective way to use Compede?

    If you put them on ruptured blisters, the create a nice warm and moist environment for germs to grow. When you put it on the unbroken it creates a small cavern around the blister to create pressure relieve. You are not supposed to remove it until it comes of by itself, which it will when there...

    Walking sticks

    Hi all, I would like to buy one hiking stick. The Black Diamond Distance Carbon Woman flz/z. But the old model with the small button you push in to extend the poles, not the flick lock (like the one on the picture). So I thought, if you had finished your camino, perhaps you wouldn’t mind...

    Most effective way to use Compede?

    Hello :D Compeed is to be worn on unbroken blisters - never on ruptured ones! You put it on clean dry skin and wear it until it comes of on its own. If you read the small instruction inside the packet it explains so.

    Having concerns with the distances to walk each day

    Indtead of thinking in kilometres or miles, try thinking in time. Are you comfortable walking for an hour? For two or three? It is not as terrifying to walk five hours as walking 20 kilometre... And try taking a small break every hour, sit down and take your shoes off. For me these two tricks...

    Napoleon route

    Just quoting: “Adam lapp 7 minutes ago New #58 Hiked valcarlos 5 days ago. Was aptly told Napoleon was closed. Valcarlos has snow in sections you had to hike around or through...I can’t imagine Napoleon route.”

    Bed bug confusion

    I was bitten twice on my second camino francés, and my body reacted very badly. I got so ill I was close to going home. As an example my right hand swelled so much I could hardly bend my fingers, and it felt like a really really bad case of man’s flu! That is when I found out I was allergic...

    My dogs are up for it but i think the people dont want them there

    I walked for a long stretch on the camino with a man and his rescue dog. They were part of some organisation and trying to create focus on the harsh conditions many spanish dogs live under. They were accepted almost everywhere, but they also slept in a tent every night outside the albergues...

    Power ADAPTER for charging cell phone?

    I live in northern Europe and just bring the one I use at home. They work fine in Spain. :) I didn’t know there was a difference between northern and southern Europe plugs.

    Hiking boots & sore legs

    I agree with all the above, but I still walk in my boots. In Denmark as well as on the camino. And in both places I always bring my Merrel sandals to walk the easy streches. Simply to change the pressure on the feet. We people are not similar and neither is our feet. I have a pair of Hanwags...
