    LIVE from the Camino Struggling with doubt on the Camino

    On my first Camino in 2008 I had some doubts about what I‘m doing when it didn‘t stop raining after 6 days. I prayed to the universe and told those people up there 👆🏻, if they won’t stop the rain, I‘ll stop and go home. The next day there was bright sunshine and I went on to Santiago. I arrived...

    Asthma on Camino Portuguése warning

    Maybe you should think about the coastal route (along the beaches) from Porto. Take the historic tramway from near the cathedral along the river Douro mouthing into the atlantic and continue your pilgrimage from there. Possibly the sea climate might be better for your asthma.

    Is Dumbria directly on the Camino Finisterre route

    I've tried both variants and I liked the one to Muxia first, then Finisterre better than vice versa.

    Cruise ships in Finisterre

    No! It is possible to do the pilgrimage on a sailing ⛵️ yacht. You have to call at several ports along the north coast and get your credencial stamped.

    National passport in card form

    Mmmh … in Germany we are using passport and id-card for identification. The passport comes in a small booklet with several blank pages. The id-card looks like a mini-passport with all the necessary personal data, but has no booklet for e.g. visa or stamps. My id-card is valid for identification...

    Le Puy-en-Velay to St. Privat d’Allier in one day?

    In 2012 I walked from Le Puy to St. Privat d‘Allier in one day and found it as to be far less strenuous than SJPdP to Roncesvalles.

    Urgently need transport from Pamplona to SJPDP, April 27, 2023

    Delete the word “urgent“ from your vocabulary for the time of your Camino. Take it easy. Everything will work out into good.

    Orio to Zarautz

    The traffic on that road is low as it is a rural area. Sometimes walking on the shoulder is possible as far as I remember.

    Walk Finisterre to Santiago - backwards to avoid crowds?

    I recommend to switch from Camino frances to Camino del Norte. Less pilgrims and pretty much coastal walks. 35 days are enough to cover e.g. Bilbao to Finisterre.

    Orio to Zarautz

    The path itself is about 1.2 km long until you reach the sportsground. From there you have to take the small asphalt road again, which isn’t a highway, btw. You won’t avoid asphalt that much. I like walking along water, so I took the road.

    San Sebastián to SJPP

    Hi Bob, which “San Sebastián“ are you talking about? Is it San Sebastián city or San Sebastián airport, which makes a big difference? San Sebastian airport is located right on the french/spanish border. Just walk to Hendaye railway station (3km) and take the train to Bayonne, and further on to...

    Training for me usually starts on day 1 on the camino. Fitness is increasing every day. I usually beginn with shorter distances the first days.

    What book defines 'off stage'?

    Hi Jeanine, on your next camino watch out for german speaking pilgrims. They generally use either the “yellow outdoor guide“ or the “red Rother guide“. French pilgrims might use the Miam Miam Dodo etc.
