    Thin Places

    Interesting thought, it’s not only that pilgrims take experience from the camino (gathering while dwelling), we’re leaving experience on/to it! Perhaps the thin place is also that it provides opportunity and potential for getting in touch with self. If ‘open’ serendipity provides magic!

    When is a pilgrim not a pilgrim

    Some thoughts - if people want to obtain a compostela, just follow the rules of the organisation providing them. - people follow their own rules about their camino. - it's usual practice on Shikoku (Japan) to use bus inbetween - contemplation on route: what does your way of looking at others...

    bed race

    You'll find out about the situation on the last part of your camino towards Santiago as you walk there. A possibility is not to stay in the regular major stage places but to pick a smaller village before or after.

    Taxi from Santiago to Labacolla Airport early morning

    Another option is take bus evening before. Near airport are some hotels, walking distance (certainly for a pilgrim;-)

    Winter on the CPortugues

    About 50 kilometers north of Porto on the Camino Portugues the bar keeper told me that in his youth every morning had snow in the streets. At the moment I'm walking there. It's beautiful sunny with temperatures around 18 C. Prepared for winter I am, not for spring;-)

    "The Way" the movie 'tragic' seeks HELP!

    Film induced tourism is a complete industry! With famous examples of 'Lord of the Rings', numerous British police series, sometimes a complete transformation due to a movie like 'Notting Hill' in London. In the case of 'The Way' we better call it Film Induced Pilgrimage;-) Just recently I...

    Is permethrin carcinogenic?

    Jungle in Nepal! We're talking about Spain, and the chance you'll contact an albergue infected with bedbugs (and not beforehand be informed by other pilgrims) isn't that big. Yes, there is a chance. But, as on issues like type of shoes, type of raingear, etc. it's each pilgrim's own decision. My...
