    And we're off - the Jesus Trail, Israel

    Glad it helps. The guesthouse in Arbel was very nice and worth basing yourself there for a few nights, as the quiet, village life is great after being in cities. They have an excellent if expensive restaurent for breakfast and dinner. The shop in the village is the saddest shop I've ever seen...

    And we're off - the Jesus Trail, Israel

    LOL. Thanks for this. I stayed an extra day near Arbel after finishing the trail and did some extra walks in the hills, around where Herod put down Jewish rebellions. All very interesting and perfect weather, and only a few fly tipping areas! Have four days in Jerusalem now. It's an amazing city.

    And we're off - the Jesus Trail, Israel

    Day 3: An exhausing third day finished off this walk, with mixed results! I left the dorm at 8.00am, having booked a second night. It was a very wise move to not have to carry the whole rucksack all day, as it was quite sunny and warm, and there was a lot of walking and hills, and diversions...

    And we're off - the Jesus Trail, Israel

    Ah, apologies. I thought it was a universal term. It must be a British term, meaning dumping lorry loads of rubbish by the side of a quiet road or out-of-the-way track where you can't be seen, usually because it costs money to dispose of large amounts of trash at a rubbish dump, or someone just...

    And we're off - the Jesus Trail, Israel

    Day 2 .... I left Kafr Kanna at 8.00am in the rain at the start of the first thunderstorm, which turned out to be a recurring theme all day long. Fortunately, I have all the right gear with me for this eventuality, and it certainly made for a muddy, fun day out, but ultimately, I was warm and...

    And we're off - the Jesus Trail, Israel

    I hope this one gets better, after day one! Got to Nazareth yesterday. There is zilch to keep anyone here in this gridlocked sprawl of a city, except for a couple of new churches and some holes in the ground, said to be where Mary may have lived, possibly, and possibly Gabriel gave her some...

    LIVE from the Camino And we are off. Daily posts from The Way .....

    Golly gosh! I’m killing the afternoon in Egypt, waiting for my evening flight back to Blighty and started re-reading these posts of the Camino last year. This really was a fun walk and met so many nice people. And of course, we are soon into the New Year and thoughts will be turning to a new...

    Day 1 Birmingham to Almarie

    Thanks. I was only thinking before getting out of bed this morning that I was just about getting into the groove! If anyone wants a 10 day walking holiday, then Almarie to Granada would be a great option to look at. I was really looking forward to pushing on to Cordoba, too. I did stretches in...

    Day 1 Birmingham to Almarie

    Day 9 Granada to Birmingham!! Bugger. I know I was feeling a bit sick for most of yesterday but when I woke up and got out of bed today, my back screamed in pain. After that, every movement really hurt and standing let alone walking was a real problem. I laid still for a few hours, did some...

    Day 1 Birmingham to Almarie

    Day 8 Quentar to Grenada 18kms If you just can't walk anymore, there is a bus at 8.00am to Granada from the square near Hotel Quentar. Just follow the Camino arrows. You will also see some bars for breakfast. The albergue is not to be missed. If you need a few days rest, this would be a...

    Day 1 Birmingham to Almarie

    Day 7 La Peza to Quentar 29kms I had a quick look at the bars in La Peza but they were pretty grim so was glad to have eaten at the albergue. The supermarket near it closed at 8.00pm. This next stage is a fantastic one, very pretty, in the mountains, great views and quiet. If it is a hot day...

    Day 1 Birmingham to Almarie

    It's a stunning route but tiring. I have developed an unhealthy habit in the evenings of eating packet spaghetti with cheese sauce washed down with cheap red wine - I hope I can come off this when I go home! I think it puts all the salt back in my body in one go, which is why I like it so much!

    Day 1 Birmingham to Almarie

    Day 6 Guadix to La Peza 25km An absolutely brilliant day but this 25km is very tiring, with lots of ups and downs, and even more to come tomorrow, I gather! And it must have been 8 or 9 degrees hotter! The Albergue in Guadix is breathtakingly beautiful and I feel priviliged to have stayed...

    Day 1 Birmingham to Almarie

    Each daily trail is posted in Wikilocs e.g https://www.wikiloc.com/hiking-trails/camino-de-mozarabe-day-4-hueneja-guadix-24045509 To get them all, the quickest was is to search for undermanager. I will group them when the whole route is done.

    Day 1 Birmingham to Almarie

    Day 5 Hueneja to Guadix 42km What a brilliant day! Bitterly cold and blue sky, great walking under the Sierra Nevada. I didn't get much sleep last night. The apartment albergue is tiny and I didn't sleep until the last of the guests decided to go to bed. Not the place to stay if you need rest or...

    Day 1 Birmingham to Almarie

    Jo from Chicago, Matt from England, Margaret from Australia, a chap from America / Puerto Rica and a Spanish chap. All good fun and I'm learning a few more Spanish phrases than normal. I'd really like to push on and do a double stage tomorrow but it all depends on the feet and energy levels, and...

    Live - Camino Mozarabe The mob on the Mozárabe

    It looks like a lot of fun. I know when you meet up in the evenings it will be great to unwind together.

    Day 1 Birmingham to Almarie

    Day 4 Abla to Hueneja Today felt like a holiday after the previous two days as I left about 8.30am and was in the hostel by 2.00pm. It was another cold blue sky day, perfect for hiking. For most of the route, you have snow capped mountains on your left so have your camera at the ready! The first...

    Day 1 Birmingham to Almarie

    Day 3 Alboloduy to Abla A fabulous day today but very tiring. At the end in Abla, you are rewarded with spectacular and close snow capped mountain views. The day starts with a tough two hour steep climb and some great views high up, then one hour steep downhill, and finally about four hours...

    Day 1 Birmingham to Almarie

    Day 2 Almeria to Alboloduy 39kms A great day today. Perfect weather - cold and mostly blue sky. I left at 7.30am and eight and a half hours later, arrived in Alboloduy. It only takes 3 hours to get to get to the village of Rioja, where there is an albergue, bars and supermarket, and another...
