    Camino de Madrid in September

    Perfect timing Nuala. I’ve arrived to Alcazaren and completed ‘pilgrim work’ for the day. Heading out to info office and later food. Will look for timr’s bar. Gorgeous walk today. Very misty start from Villeguillo but I saw lots of deer skipping across the path ahead of me. Pilgrims do make a...

    Camino de Madrid in September

    Well I promised to write about my camino Madrid. As I’ve been dogged with a pesky foot issue I’ve held off posting in case I have to abandon ship. Bloomin heck, what next! Suffice to say I’m doing ok and staying in touch with Terry and Paul. We’re a day apart. Im now in the cute Albergue in...

    Camino de Madrid in September

    Hi @camino07, I hope your cat is on the mend. I had the same issue but mine is bouncing back. It’s countdown time again (5 days) and after 2 years without a camino I am so keen to get on the plane. I’ve made contact with OP (Terry) and hope to meet up in Madrid. I’ll try to post some news ad...

    Camino de Madrid in September

    Hi @camino07 - I’ll be a couple of weeks ahead of you on the Madrid. Departing Madrid on 7th or 8th September (depends on how I feel after flying from NZ) I’ll try to post some basic info as I go - via a new thread. It’s been great to read all the recent posts on the Madrid this year - great...

    BP starts from Alicante, version 3.0!

    BP - I loved the Albergue in Alpera. If the Ayun is open it’s a breeze to find and lovely to stay there. @Undermanager was there in May - here are some edited exercpts from his description - (I’m sure he won’t mind). . . "Alpera is a really nice, small, open town with at least six bars that...

    Blue sky looks good in the photo. Seems like it’s getting warmer for you. Enjoy the Albergue in Fuenterroble. A favourite of mine. XG

    Live - Via de la Plata Annie’s partial Vdlp apr/may 2019

    Great to see you’re going well Annie. I know you’ve passed Zafra but this note may help those reading your notes for upcoming VdlP…... I like to recommend the ‘other’ albergue in Zafra (ie Albergue Convento San Francisco, Av. Fuente del Maestre, 2) as it is closer to the centre and super...

    Black Swan Hostel - Great Seville Option!

    As an ex-resident of Sevilla I recommend searching AirBnB for places that are central (in the 'old town') which would then be max 15 minutes from the Cathedral. Best not to look for places in Triana if you want to start walking from the Cathedral. It is a ‘suburb’ on the way out of Sevilla...

    Sleeping Pad for the Levante?

    Hi Hamish, Personally I think you will find that you don’t need a mat. There was always somewhere to stay and all the albergues had beds/bunks with matresses. It would be ‘rare’ for them to be full. Mostly I was staying on my own or with only 1 other. If not an albergue, you’ll find a pension...

    LIVE from the Camino Camino Mixto: Feb-Mar 2019 Levante

    Hi Donna, if you still feel refreshed and want to continue after Xativa, there is a great muni at Canals (+7km). You get the key from the policia. It is a little apartment situated above the local market so coffee at the cafe below is possible very early for the stallholders ;)

    Madrid to Sahgun doing 15 to 20 K days?

    Alvin, I may be a few days behind you as I’ll leave Madrid on the 5th May. It all depends on whether there is still snow on the crossing (if so, I’ll walk the Levante from Toledo instead). Chito, you’ll be way ahead but if you post updates, I’ll follow along. Many thanks.

    LIVE from the Camino Camino Mixto: Feb-Mar 2019 Levante

    Hi Donna, what a great start to your adventure. I’ll be keeping a close eye on your reports especially your time after Toledo. Are you going all the way to Zamora then hooking up with the Vdlp to Santiago? I’ll be following some time in May. Enjoy and have a glass or to for me. Cheers, Grace

    Aarn Backpack Advice Please - FF or PA

    Hi @tomishy - I know the question you pose is not for me but as I have/love an Aarn I thought I’d offer my comments to the forum. I have the Peak Aspiration. I also bought the large Balance Pockets and used them for my first Aarn camino. I found them a little cumbersome to put my pack on (by...
