    Places to stay in o pino

    I have stayed at the Casa Tia Teresa in Salceda during my last 3 Caminos and highly recommend it. They have reasonably priced private rooms and the food and service is excellent. It is a relaxing walk into Santiago for the last leg of the CF after a peaceful night...

    Camino Ingles for a newbie

    Easy to do in your time frame. I had a few days available after walking the CF from SJPDPin October 2019. Had no plan on days but actually finished in 3 days (68 at that time). Walked long stretches without seeing another pilgrim and then other times with large school groups that filled...

    Auberge Borda

    I have stayed there twice and have booked again for this September. The host Laurent is super and goes above and beyond to make the stay quite relaxing. The beds and facilities are quite comfortable and the pilgrims dinner is fantastic. We normally take the noon bus from Pamplona to SJPDP and...

    A September or October Camino Ingles?

    I walked it in October 2019 and had a wonderful time. The weather was great but being Galicia, plan for rain. No trouble with accommodations and ran into only a handful of pilgrims each day. A very relaxing Camino after completing the Frances a couple of days prior. Easy to get to Ferrol...

    Spare pair of shoes?

    As mentioned, an extra pair of shoes isn't necessary as there are numerous places to purchase shoes, unless you need size 13+. It is difficult to find large shoes in Spain and unfortunately, my shoes seam to break down before reaching Santiago (Altras, Hokas, Brooks on previous Caminos), but...

    Lengthen Camino Ingles?

    I walked the Ingles in October 2019 and had a great time. Most of the larger towns along the route have tourist offices that provide great assistance. There are plenty of lodging opportunities along the way except as previously mentioned near Burma. The albergue there was great with a good...
