    I'm back home!

    Hi Chris, thank you for your distance recommendation for the first stages of the Le Puy route. I plan to start end of April 2019. I read of weather warnings at that time of year and am taking note. I've done a number of Spanish Caminos and the Portuguese camino. I might have further queries for...

    Portugal's Fisherman's Trail...help!

    Also, might be useful to consider having your bag transferred on some parts of the trail where there is some climbing of rocks. When I walked I did think that a heavy backpack would make you unsteady on these parts especially if there was wind. Not trying to scare you, just a consideration.

    Portugal's Fisherman's Trail...help!

    Hi Chris, my husband and I walked the fisherman's trail about 4yrs ago starting in Porto Covo, north to south. To be truthful there are places with narrow trails which are up high. I feel from what I remember that you could lean inland away from the coast when possible. The suggestion of poles...

    Be prepared at Rabacal hostel

    I stayed at Rabacal, Casa de Turismo in May this year. I had walked some of the day with another lady from Germany. We did happily wait for it to be opened. The lady who opened it was very rude and impatient. She shouted at us in Portuguese which I did not understand. The German lady I arrived...

    How do people adjust to home after their return from the Camino?

    Hi Stephen, Well said! Yes and no. In one way it helps you understand where you are and in another way can confuse you for a while.......going walking again can be a "cure" but knowing you can go, really go may actually be enough.

    How do people adjust to home after their return from the Camino?

    Hi Silvester, I certainly can associate with the feeling that my body need to wait for my soul to catch up on difficult days on the Camino! What I think is helpful is to go back over posts on this forum some time after returning and even rereading posts. These reminders help me keep the Camino...

    How do people adjust to home after their return from the Camino?

    Hi hans2hike, When I found it difficult to adjust to home I found the forum helpful in that I was not alone. I agree that everyone's experience has to be different and each journey different. Like you I am planning a home Camino in Ireland on a very beautiful trail through Part of Dublin...

    How do people adjust to home after their return from the Camino?

    Well done Crusader!! You seem to have brought the Camino home with you. The feelings I felt after my long stint in June 2014 was very different to my recent short walk from Santiago to Muxia and Fisterra. I'm glad I didn't wait until next spring to go back. I left myself as open as I could have...

    Santiago Muxia Fisterra route accomodation

    I particularly liked my time in Santiago after my short walk. The last time I finished a felt it was an anticlimax. I really got a lot from the Englash Mass in a tiny chapel in the cathedral. It's held at 10.30 am daily. It was quite emotional, I felt great gratitude and humbled to be able to...

    Santiago Muxia Fisterra route accomodation

    I did intend to walk to Cee from Fisterra and get the bus from there back to Santiago but I had some very wet days while walking and there was 17mm rain forecast for the next day so I can decided to cut my trip short by one day. I finished on 7th October 2014. I had walked from St.Jean to...
