    Unusual places to collect sellos/stamps

    In 2017 somewhere between Saint Jean Pied de Port and Burgos, a young lad had a lemonade stand just outside the entrance to his home and he had a cello. Great 🍋 lemonade too!

    Random thing that made you smile on Camino?

    I was having a pretty gruelling day near the end of the Camino Frances and this older gentleman and his companion, whom I had crossed paths with many times, passed by me as I sat on log, feeling at the end of my rope. He stopped, smiled and told me "you're doing a great job!". I almost cried but...

    Suggestions for Spanish Greeting Cards on the Camino

    Hi all-Happy New Year! I plan on finishing my Camino in 2022. I had to stop early due to an injury in 2019. I have a number of friend's and family's birthdays happening while on the Camino and thought it would be fun to send a Spanish greeting card. I realize they are not a big thing there but...

    Let's talk waist packs!

    I use a fanny pack on my walks around home. I end up back at my home so I don't need to bring much besides my ID, face mask, handsanitizer and phone with my QR code along with some coin to stop for my coffee break. I don't think anyone cares what I look like- I certainly don't. Tourists are an...

    OBSOLETE COVID THREAD American travelers dodge the EU travel ban—for now!

    Canadian citizens are also under a travel advisory making difficult to get insurance and direct flights. Our vaccine roll out has surpassed most, if not all other countries and our positive case numbers are no where near what they are in the U.S...

    That is my question as well. Is there a form we can fill out and have notarized or something from Canada?

    To be lost on the Camino

    I really enjoyed your tale! You are a good story teller. Your words brought back snippets of memories of my own Camino moments, although I was never as lost as you were. Your final sentence really summed up my feelings after several difficult days, on the Camino and at other times in my life.

    El Camino trash

    I am worried about even going on the Camino now. With all the posts about garbage and excrement I am concerned that it will not be of any benefit. I don't want to leave my Camino experience with nothing but bad memories of the disgusting habits of humans. I can stay at home for that!
