    Warning for solo female pilgrims to be aware on Mozárabe

    I hadn't thought to mention this previously, but on reading today a post on a fb group I follow I think I should. On the long stage from Villaharta to Alcaracejos there is a smallholding that you pass through at around 18 km. Back in 2015 I walked this route from Málaga with forum member...

    An overview of the Camino Mozárabe from Almería with resources, Part 1

    I decided to walk the Camino Mozárabe from Almería largely in response to a camino forum member requesting company on the route. I was an early responder and thought for many months that there would just be the two of us. Whereas slowly but surely other forum members showed interest in joining...

    I couldn't resist...no-drone video round-up

    I was so moved and inspired by the video featured in a recent thread that I felt compelled to make one in the same format. Nowhere near as professional as the video made by SummitXtreme, and with no drone footage, but I think it gives a real feel for all the wonderful sights and experiences...

    New video and daily blog posts along the caminos de Madrid, Salvador, Primitivo & Fisterra

    Not exactly live, although posted live to my blog each day along these four camino routes. Just didn't have the time or the energy to post to the forum at the same time. On the Madrid and San Salvador there were very few other pilgrims although things got busy on the Primitivo and Fisterra. I...

    Any recent information on the Camino Torres?

    I'm thinking about walking the Torres next year, can anyone provide shortcuts to info so save me reinventing the wheel? Is there any albergue infrastructure on this route, or is it likely to be rather expensive?

    How busy is the Camino Fisterra?

    Having spent a few totally wonderfully solitary days walking the Ruta do Mar (with a few side trips) I will soon be rejoining Camino society on the Camino Ingles. I then plan to walk to Finisterre but am concerned about how many other pilgrims I am likely to meet. Does anyone have a feeling as...

    Walking partner sought for Mozarabe from Málaga to Mérida

    My friend Marilyn from South Africa wishes to walk the Mozarabe from Malaga, but is rightly concerned that she will have a very lonely pilgrimage. I walked this route last year and was very lucky to find a walking partner on this forum. During eighteen days it took us to reach Mérida on the...

    GoPro advice please

    After much deliberation I have decided to buy a GoPro or similar video camera which I will use to record my walks both on camino and off. I have looked at reviews on the web but am still finding it difficult to decide what model/make to go for. Price is an issue, but I don't want to buy a...
