    To guide book or not to guide book?

    Guidebooks can be helpful, digital or paper. I think you’ll figure out what’s best for you. What I would caution is don’t get locked into A guidebook lockstep, doing the stages according to the guidebook. Some of my best experiences on the Camino Frances came when I deliberately switched to...
