    Backpack Transfer along CF

    The only company I have seen in all albergues is Jacotrans. Very reliable. Make sure to call them the day before and tell them where you are sending your pack. The albergues provide you with envelopes to put on your pack.

    Brands of tea in Spain

    Black tea is hard to find. You may find black tea with mint, which does not work for black tea drinkers like me. I would get any box of black tea you can find.

    Hello. I realize there is not one answer to this question. I have 25 days and I am not fast. I may just cut a section and move on. I have watched many videos from previous pilgrims and, unlike other routes that cross industrial areas o have long sections on paved roads, I haven't seen any...
