    Why you should not walk the Camino del Norte (or at least not until you have read this post!)

    Just bought my plane ticket and a new Camino.

    theres an Albergue in Pobena ..if you stay there go into the left hand side room..the right hand side room..wall covered in damp.. recommend stopping at Luarca..there is an Albergue on way in to town.. better off staying in Albergue in town centre..
