Wow … so much snow on the Norte …
Certainly makes sense to take a rest day - take care of yourself. It looks like it’s well deserved.
Ps. In the pics the snow looks heavenly but that’s looking at it from afar (here in Oz).
Have you been to Paris before ?
If not - and you’ve got time - enjoy ❤️ at least a day there.
Bayonne is a really lovely place to visit. If you’re flying into Paris and have seen Paris ., then get to Bayonne and spend some time there and sleep there. Next day - the short...
And even more ‘nuts’ is that checking the link out - one of the ‘tour’ dates is already SOLD OUT ….
No doubt the botafumeiro will swing in Santiago if they are paying this exorbitant amount …. Surely it will guaranteed at that price.
By any chance Bad Pilgrim., was your stop (cheesecake and coffee) ….. the same place we stopped in Bendillo in October last year. ? Her name ‘Ana’ - she is seated on the left in the pic. We are the 2
at the end partaking of food and drink. A

Ana told us that...
I’m wondering like @mick53 whether you’d thought of starting from Almeria. Where the amigos will help you find accommodation and support you to Granada.
You could have a look at a new Mozárabe thread ‘also starting from Malaga ; just posted by @jpflavin1 who is planning to...
Our forum member @AJGuillaume has walked the Mozárabe starting at all 3 starting points (Almería , Jaén, & Malaga) over recent times … and has posted a lot of info that would help with your questions. Except possibly ?? the sleeping arrangements in Malaga (where they have family...
Wow Sue - a long day of walking for you. What time did you set out ?
Some of those trails (up/down) (although lovingly prepared for us ; with helpful switchbacks ) are quite daunting - they were for me on my own anyway. I will be interested to hear how your daytime temps are from here...
I say ‘good for you ‘. This will mean you’ll be better placed to be generous on the camino… to yourself and to donativos. Much more worthy recipients than airlines.
Ps. Hat off to you getting your weight low. It’s always difficult not to take ‘just in case’… 🤪🤪.
You are getting the hot stuff in the west Paul. We’re getting very high humidity but lower 30’s on the east coast., accompanied by some scary storms here and there (thunder and lightening and hail )..
It’s looking lovely on the Vdlp and Mozárabe though ❤️
If you’re making any hotel bookings where you would like to collect your parcel., an idea would be to message your ‘booking establishment’ directly and ask if they could hold for you until your “ date of arrival “. I’m not sure how long correos will hold parcels but they used to do this ...
Hi @Damien Reynolds
I’m wondering if you’ve time to add your thoughts on your camino after Córdoba to Mérida on the mozárabe. ?
The weather you enjoyed up to Córdoba looked perfect. I’m interested in any terrain that you thought could prove difficult for an oldie with problem joints ?
I’m wondering if you’ve noticed this shadow ? Pics (2) were taken at 12.53pm (midday) 20 Oct 2023. Below the cathedral steps. I was taking a pic of the shell in the pic and later noticed the shadow..
Re the pilgrim shadow. We (I’m with @El Cascayal / she’s in yellow jacket ) had our...
