    Kindness of pilgrims

    I have just walked from Carrión to Cruz de Ferro, a fantastic walk. I’m writing to thank various pilgrims for their kindness when I had two separate bouts of back ailments. I should say that I don’t have a history of back trouble, and it may have been initiated by an ill fitting rucksack on...

    Alternative route out of León

    Thank you for your replies. I did the alternative route on Saturday and it was supremely well signposted all the way from the turning just past Virgen del Camino to Mazarife. I had the good fortune to walk with a French choir from Nancy near Metz. They did an impromptu performance in Virgen del...

    Weather forecasts

    Any recommendations for good weather forecast websites for Spain? I am starting from St-Jean-Pied-de-Port next Friday (going as far as Logrono by the following Thursday).

    Spanish trains

    I am planning to walk from St Jean to Logrono in September. Getting there is not a problem as I am happy to do the journey by train over two days. I plan to fly back from Bilbao but there is only one suitable train from Logrono to Bilbao. It arrives three and a half hours before the flight, so...
