    Camino de la Vera Cruz

    I am wondering if anyone has any information re this route. My friend has read of a route from Puenta la Reina de Navarra to Caravaca. She would like to cycle it. Is there a guide? Don't suppose there are many, if any, Albergues. Gracias.

    Health Food Stores

    Hi everyone, I seem to remember a Health Food Store in Jaca, near the Cathedral on the square. Don't know if it is still there but I would hazard a guess it is. I too am interested for things like nuts and dried fruit - a light, nurishing snack type food for El Camino. I always miss my...

    Age & Fitness

    And PEI-les, That 82 year old! GREAT - never say CAN'T. You remind me of myself starting University at age 58. Thought I'd only last a week, then got to Christmas, then passed 1st-year exams and finally aged 60 I graduated with a double first class honours in Spanish and Irish Studies...

    Spring landscape in EL CAMINO

    Almond Trees in Aragón Hola, Can anybody tell me the stage of the almond blossom in Alto Aragón? I am told the ancient stepping stones (three tier) near Castiello de Jaca have been washed away. What a loss. Wonder how old they were? Gracias, Eleanor

    Spring landscape in EL CAMINO

    Hi Javier, Looks good after the one of the pilgrim in the snow a few days ago in Roncesvalles. What way are the almond trees in Aragón? Would like to see them in blossom. I'm always there in late summer. Greetings from Mayo. We are having a heat wave! Eleanor

    Lost pilgrim interview

    ?Yes xm, A salutary tale which is a lesson to us all! For myself, I know I would be thinking twice of walking El Camino without a cell phone as I am vunerable walking on my own seeing that I am somewhat disabled. I am "feeling the fear but doing it anyway"!. Will be arriving at Somport on 23rd...
