    Guides in Nepal

    Ideas please on where to start further back in France, before SJPP

    Saint Palais where the Camino Tours, Vezelay, and Podiensis meet up is a good option but hard to beat magical Lourdes and it’s nightly candle procession. Though you will be 6 days from SJPP. Also you have the option of picking up the Camino Aragones route into Spain which is a beautiful Camino...

    Camino Vasco

    I walked it and the closest I got to another pilgrim was 3 days behind A German in the Registry Book at the Albergue in Haro. If you like wine I recommend taking the route to Santo Domingo as you go through Haro and pass some great wineries.

    Weather in November/December

    I walked last November 22 to December 10 on Frances. The weather was mild. Even the last few days in Galicia were pleasant. I wore thin gloves and a rain jacket in morning but often shed those. O Cebreiro was cold and icy but not a problem. Of course one should be prepared for anykind of weather...

    Hiking stick instead of walking poles

    I have walked 10 or more pilgrimages since 2018 and I always start my pilgrimage without a stick and trust in the pilgrim spirits to connect me with a good natural walking stick. I feel it allows for a better connection to nature.

    Seeking Information on the trail to O Cebreiro in Winter

    I walked up to O Cebreiro on December 3 last year and it was sunny and pleasant and I wore just a tshirt and an open lomg sleeve shirt. Though it got cold at night. If there’s snow on the path easy enough to take the road nearby.

    GR221 (Ruta De Pedra En Sec / The Dry Stone Route) - Mallorca

    One of my favorite Caminos. It’s a spectacular beautiful coastal walk and perfect if you like a more rugged walk than the typical Camino. Also there is a Camino de Santiago starting in Lluc at the Monastery. I think your best off sticking to the GR221 though it stops at the Monastery. There are...

    Francés vs Via de la Plata vs Camino de madrid

    I have walked all three. Walking in April May and having 2 months would suggest the VDLP as a good option for you as it is 1,000 km. It it much less crowded than Frances. A more intimate Camino, Requiring 6 weeks or so leaving you time for Finisterre. Madrid is even more solitary and only about...

    I’ve been using an online gos map from a Dutch group for several years that overlays onto map apps such as Maps.me and can be used offline I have used it on many Caminos including all the majors and lesser walked routes such as del Vasco, de Madrid, Aragones, Spiritual Variant, Invierno...

    How to travel from Muxia to A Coruna in July?

    No you don’t have to go back to SdeC. Arriva has 2 buses daily to La Coruña. I have taken the 6:00 or 6:30 bus I think it is. Pretty sure 6:30. It’s not listed because you change buses. You can buy a ticket on the bus. There is also a late afternoon bus.

    The most beautiful spot of the world?

    I walked the Camino de Faros last year. The 200K, 7 day walk is from Malpica along the Costa del Morte and goes through Muxia and Lires ending in Finisterre. The whole walk is spectacularly beautiful. I walked the Muxia to Lires and Lires to Finisterre sections in early May when many flowers...

    Relocate to Spain after 65

    Yes. Relatively easy for me. But my partner is Japanese. It’s been an ongoing struggle for her.

    Relocate to Spain after 65

    You are right. It is a struggle. I have EU citizenship but my partner is Japanese and it is a very arduous process as you suggest.
