    Maybe a rude question! How old are you?

    Hi @Thornley This poll is a bit like watching the Melbourne cup 🐎🐎🐎. (over a longer duration !) I keep checking to see who is winning. 🤣🤣🤣 We were doing well at the beginning , but the 60’s group has pulled ahead strongly now. .

    Madrid City Walks

    …..take #3…. Tuesday 9th. I fly out late tonight - so I’m in your situation. How I love Madrid. The sun is out - a beautiful day. So much to absorb. I’ve ambled all over today. I checked out exactly where the airport bus stop was at Atocha. A note for anyone arriving or departing...

    LIVE from the Camino Walking the CF for Teresa

    I’ll bet you amazed yourself. I’ve often ‘been there’ and thought ‘ how can I walk a stage tomorrow without any sleep ?’ But I somehow find the energy next day. I think the fact that we are ‘resting’ our bodies works the magic. I agree with @J Willhaus though… it’s lovely to have a private...

    Madrid City Walks

    …..take #2….. I went out without rain jacket and 10 minutes later the clouds and wind arrived 🙁 and a little rain. I decided that it might not be as pleasant as usual so headed indoors. …. So…. Have your plan B or C 😀.

    What do you wash your clothes with

    Yes Chrissy I usually bring both too. Often end up having to empty my travel size shampoo and conditioner before leaving Spain., because when in accommodation that provides it - I use it. Admittedly this time … I’ve messed up with flitting about trying to find drier trails with less mud and...

    What do you wash your clothes with

    Although I’m happy to use normal soap for washing clothes; after multi caminos , I still haven’t tried using same to wash my hair. I really will have to test it at home one day 🤪🤣

    Maybe a rude question! How old are you?

    Similar thought about responders. I rarely respond to polls but this one is pretty harmless.

    Disappointing Experience at Hospedería San Martín Pinario

    Of course I know it’s you. I just wanted you to identify yourself. Many people don’t like being tagged. (Me for one ). Buen camino for your current camino primitivo too.

    Tomorrow is the day! Yesssssss!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have walked many caminos since 2012 and never treated my gear. I’ve never had a bed bug. Don’t expect to find them yourself. You’d have to be very unlucky. Buen camino

    Just started El Camino Vasco del Interior.

    Hi Steve, I’ll be watching your progress. Both times I planned to walk this route ., I talked myself out of it. Most recent plan for late March and first week of April., but because of the ‘rain in Spain ‘ 🤣. I gave up and became a tourist across to Valencia and now Cuenca. Heading home in...

    Trains from Madrid Chamartin to Zamora help

    Just for info - mentioned above a few times already - there is a lot of work in progress at Chamartín. Constantly changing. So it’s not you if you’re confused - just ask for help. You can get there by metro or cercanías. I catch the cercanías from SOL where i stay - it is much more simple...
