    Pyrenees difficulty

    In 2016 on my 72nd birthday and after spending the night at Bellari (highly recommended) in Saint Jean Pied de Port I took the Roman way.

    Polling Fellow Walkers - Start in SJPP or Pamplona?

    How to get from El Acebo to Molinaseca

    In my memory that's a very difficult stretch and I advise going slow along the road. Don't hesitate to take a cab if your ankle is telling you to do so! Buen Camino

    Trekking Poles in Logrono?

    There's a wonderful pilgrim stand outside Logrono and the bearded gent sells staffs that he makes. I've used two and like them better than poles.
