When I came through Santiago airport last year we were able to load hiking poles in the hold free of charge with Ryan Air
Has anyone used them recently and is this policy still in place
I’ve not done the sums. But I work on the basis it is cheaper for me to fly to spain and walk than it is to walk the South West Costal path. It is such a shame. But the cost of accommodation and living expenses becomes prohibitive Mick
Hi. - has anyone taken the train from London to Santiago - my son is scared of flying - so this looks the best option (or drive via Ferry)
From what I can see the route looks to be:
* London Paris
* Paris Madrid
* Madrid - Santiago
Your 'why not' question is great.
I plan to do my next camino at some speed (for me) next week but am wary of talking about it because of a common view that it may not be a 'proper' pilgrimage!.
I notice that wiki suggests a pilgrimage as 'a journey, often into an unknown or foreign place...
Reading a blog recently - one of the hikers was talking about his use of mens hiking skirts. When he listed the advantages they seemed really interesting.
I wonder if any men on the forum have used these (and I am conscious that a Kilt may fall into the category)
With a SJPP start next week...
