    Weather in O Ceibero now

    You can find a live webcam of the top of the trail portion by searching for camino livecams, and see the snow on the trail there.

    Which App?

    Definately get the TrekRight app specific to the Camino Frances. I used this exclusively on my camino recently. Great app with many features and it kept me from getting lost twice when i took wrong roads.

    Walking a Camino is good for your health...

    Oh yes, i recognize your picture. We met on the trail several times. I believe you were with me and another German fellow who were lost in the city and a local woman led us thru a short cut back to the path. Is that you?

    Do's and don'ts in the albergue?

    I would add “ do read and be aware of the posted albergue rules when you arrive. I was unaware of these at orisson and it was my first camino. When i was found taking a shower at 2:30 am, i was pulled by the ear by a staff member to the bulletin board where it was posted ‘no showering after...

( you can get an idea of the...

    Question about Albergue in San Juan de Ortega

    I was there just two nights ago. I saw no mold and felt no reaction to mold, of which i too am allergic. Still, i wouldnt exactly call this albergue “renovated”, though i don’ t have a basis of comparison. It is a modest albergue with basic amenities. The garlic soup was delicious.

    Not getting it

    First, i must congratulate you on your honesty! Now, if this were me, i’d give it a few more days to move me and if it didn’t i would head for the shore. And if you are inclined to head south, try Morocco for a real taste of the exotic. You are on an adventure and there are no rules. Keep moving...
