    in case you hadn't guessed already we're very much in the planning stages. however 15th July start is 'set'. plan is to drive via dover / calais which I'm sure will always have some capacity especially during the night (always used to be that way at least?). Assuming the schools break up end of...

    looks like we'll be taking a tent then..... a serious note however - does anyone know if many (or any) of the Albergues allow for small tents? while I don't recall seeing any I seem to think this is an option at a large percentage of them?

    correct. although it was October last time and reasonably quiet. my concerns this time is we'll be the other end of the spectrum - add to that, I understand cyclists are generally not given first dibs. and another photo for those that like the photos :)

    well I'm looking to do the Camino once again ..... and yes its last minute again. nothing booked - be that ferries, accommodation etc. which leads me to my quesetion; can we generally books beds at all Albergues - or is it first come first serve basis? We didn't book last time and everything...

    🤔 not sure I can count that high. lets just say it was quite a lot. obviously sometimes / areas more than others, especially in the later stages. here is in my opinion an example of how blessed we were (see photo). being in mind it was early October this is what we were greeted with on the...

    Kirkie, sorry for such a slow response. yes back safe and well. the slower version is on ice for now as you can imagine. life in generally seems to be slowing down and not just because of covid-19. a return is very much on the cards but not sure when that will be. I'll try and up load some...

    Napoleon Route Closed.

    I'm all for safety etc but having riden this route only a few weeks back I'm struggling to understand how it becomes presumably too dangerous so quickly and where? Closed to absolute beginners but to someone with a little experience I just don't get? (I'm not saying it's wrong - I just don't get...

    Almost forgot to add a mention of the diffiult bit.... The hire car place was closed 1pm till 4:30pm. After a coffee, getting our passport stamped at the cathedral and finding our way to the hire centre we arrived at 1:05pm so had to hang around till the opened. Took about a further 45 mins to...

    thank you and yes. early plans are along the lines of wife and oldest daughter walking the French route while my youngest and myself 'drop in' by driving some sections :)

    so a very brief over view of our 'pilgrimage' to Santiago. upon arrival at Bilbao we headed straight for SJJP and the Pilgrims office. We found it, got our passports stamped and by the time we'd got the bikes ready, car parked up etc it was circa 6pm. with a little too much optimism we headed...

    Thank you. And yes already thinking about a return based on a slower pace. The evening catch up with other pilgrims has been great even if the days have been a little frantic. Several hundreds of miles to cover now in a hire car.

    Thanks for your help. We headed out of Leon. First hostal was full so we kept going into the night with lights and found somewhere a little further on...can't reall the location but upon my return will endeavour to give a littttle write up. All finished now. Stuck to footpaths even where they...

    can anyone advise if there's a need for a mug, fork, knife and spoon. I presume these are always available at meals?

    how strange I thought I'd replied to this already? I can't recall exactly what I said but I think it went something like this.... for me it wouldn't be the real deal. it would perhaps make a whole lot more sense but then removing sugar and the gas from coka cola would probably make good sense...

    more problems and then a break through which some might find helpful. after finding out on here and other places it's not going to be practical / possible to get our bikes onto the fast train back to Pamplona as pack size / box must not exceed 1.2mtrs. this lead to another search for one way...
