    Where to stay the night before Santiago....?

    We chose to stay in a pension in O Pedrouzo the night before walking into Santiago. It was too hot to sleep so we departed at 4 am, headlamps on and through the forest. Needless to say the forest was thick with moths and insects attracted to the light from our headlamps……next came the bats! We...

    Best place to exchange dollars for euros?

    Trecile’s post re Charles Schwab is priceless. The other advice we received before 2017 and 2019 camino is to only use bank associated ATMs , e.g. Santander. Good counsel. Buen Camino.

    “The worst footprint of the pilgrims”

    In 2017 walking our first CF, we had the joy of walking several days with an 84 yr old Spaniard who was taking advantage of May holidays and clear blue skies. He was proud, charming, and patient with my struggling Spanish. Yet every time we walked by man made rock cairns, which was often, he...

    My Camino regret!

    In April/May 2017 walking our first camino from SJPP my husband encountered a bad clam in an otherwise delicious paella in Castrojeriz.

    Winter Camino Francés video (arrived January 6th, 2021)

    David, we chromecast your video to the big screen last evening and it was akin to being in a church, quiet, meditative snowy footsteps. Great production and direction, with many more steps than credited due to setting up shots with the GoPro. You were smartly and appropriately outfitted for your...

    If You Only Had Time To Spend In One City: Porto vs. Lisbon

    From a Pacific NW friend. We spent 5 days in Porto in October after rewalking the Meseta. 2017, 2019. The food, tiles, architecture are fabulous, and did I mention the food? We took the metro to Matosinhos for the day and the ocean is magnificent. We saw many pilgrims on their way. Enjoy!

    Advice on skipping Meseta

    2 years ago my husband had a bad mussel in Castrojeriz forcing us to leave the Camino in Fromista for Leon and medical care. After 4 days we were able to continue walking to Santiago. We return to Spain on 9/21 to walk from Fromista to Leon. The meseta beckons!
