    ISO information on pack transport for the Via delaPlata and Sanabres

    I plan on walking on the Via de la Plata from Salamanca north to the junction of the Sanabres and then west to Ourense. Being an older person with a spinal condition I am hoping that a pack transport option is available as on the other routes I have walked. If not I will skinny down my...

    Using Whatsapp to message albergues

    Planning Norte Route

    I would recommend flying in to Oviedo and walking west. The best of both worlds with a few days on the coast then heading south into the country.

    You will not regret taking this variant! Monastery has amazing museum and art work, with beds for pilgrims. Convent has nightly vesper. Scenery is amazing. With the boat trip to Pardon it takes the same amount of time. Then 25k to SdC. Try to get a room at the Hope House in Villanova with...

    Best ways to organize one's pack

    I begin my third Camino on June 1. Being the Guici girl that I am, on my first time around I purchased several brightly colored and expensive REI bags to pack clothing and essentials in an organized manner. Prior to leaving I opted to use the heavy duty freezer zip lock bags. Perfect as they...
