    Coming back to complete or start again?

    Hi everyone, last year I walked carrying a back pack staying in hostels from SJDPP to Leon and then had to stop and go home due to Plantar Facilitis which was incredibly painful and frustrating. It's taken until now (4 months later) to be able to walk for more than an hour without pain. I'm...

    Pass it forward

    Whilst I was walking the Camino Frances I noticed how frequently items that were wanted/needed were found or lost or passed on or shared or left behind but then gained by another....for example Betty left her rain jacket behind but was later given a cape then I met her and mentioned I needed a...

    I'd like to share something about dealing with longish hair on the Camino.... I was advised well and took a Lush shampoo bar plus conditioner bar which were both fantastic (although my tip is take two conditioner bars for 4 weeks plus) as I'd never heard of these before I was pretty sceptical...

    Walking a Camino in bits and pieces

    I've just completed half my Camino although at the moment it feels like Leon was 'my Santiago' but who knows I might come back and do the second half..... my question is how does it feel to begin in the middle if you know what I mean? I met many many pilgrims doing the Camino in 'bits and...

    Live - Camino Francés Slowing down

I begin the day fine but after 2 hours...

    Lost Lost pearl earring- Albergue Villamayor de

    I slept last night at the Auberge Villa Mayor de Morjardin 12/9/16 in Room 6 and I may have lost my earring in the double bed. If anyone finds it I'd be so happy as these earrings were a special gift from my son in Australia and I wore them specially (if a little foolishly) to take something of...

    How long did you prepare for your Camino?

    I'm interested in the range and variety of preparations (I note on this Forum someone preparing for 2017/18). For myself I was talking with a peer on a train travelling back from a particularly challenging 5 day residential course she said 'I've been thinking about walking the Camino one day' I...
