    All of a sudden no motivation to start the camino

    So here's an update: Just booked my flight to Porto! I leave in two days. All of your posts encouraged me to get moving. Last minute flight was quite expensive, but I thought Porto route is better than the Geneva-Le Puy because there are many cafes on the way to take frequent breaks. And I saw...

    All of a sudden no motivation to start the camino

    Oh my god you are all so lovely and kind to take your time to share your thoughts about this post! I can’t thank you all enough for your cheerful words and wise advices. I send you all a virtual hug from Zurich, Switzerland.

    All of a sudden no motivation to start the camino

    Thanks everyone. I‘m surprised that many of you are recommending primitivo. Why? Because the temperature is cooler there? I read that it is the most challenging camino of all? Why oh why? 😭

    Weather to expect Geneva - Le Puy - SJPDP.

    Hi Michael, how was your camino starting from Geneva? Which route did you take? Please share with us. Would love to hear how the camino went.

    All of a sudden no motivation to start the camino

    Yes, I think you're right. (staring at my empty 40L backpack that's lying on the floor in a droopy shape)

    All of a sudden no motivation to start the camino

    Hi everyone! I'd like to ask this question to pilgrims who have already done a camino. Since the beginning of this year I had blocked two weeks of my calendar to do a 2 week camino this summer during July. The blocked date starts already next week but I have zero motivation and still haven't...

    Two nations divided by a common language?

    I’m not American, i’m Korean/Swiss - but why do you have a plastic bowl in your sink?? 🤔

    Pls help me decide: Camino Porto or Geneva-LePuy Route?

    Thanks so much my lovely pilgrim friends! Really love and appreciate your comments. Thanks so much for sharing your thought. I think i’m leaning towards Porto because it’s cooler and there are more urban areas for taking breaks. I am (only) 40yrs old but rheumatoid arthritis is taking a toll on...

    Pls help me decide: Camino Porto or Geneva-LePuy Route?

    Hi pilgrim friends, After my first pilgrimage Camino Frances last year, I blocked my calendar for late July-mid August this year to do a second camino. Since a while already I am not able to decide which one to do, either the Camino Porto or Geneva-Le Puy. Time-wise and language-wise I am...

    A thank you recipe for all pilgrims on this forum: Caldo Gallego

    Yes! :) I plan to write a series of the recipes from the camino. I plan to feature my Galician mother in law in some of the postings!

    A thank you recipe for all pilgrims on this forum: Caldo Gallego

    Hola lovely pilgrims! It has been exactly one month since I got back from the Camino (SJPdP - Santiago). It was such an amazing experience mentally and physically. I returned with more strength, energy, lots of gratitude and quite some significant learnings for my life. This forum and the...

    My reasons for the pilgrimage

    I‘m happy to hear that you enjoyed the trip on your own! And i have the same opinion like you - it‘s really OK if two people as a couple like different things and have different hobbies as long as you love and accept each other the way they are. Wish you happiness always!

    Bathroom in October camino

    Hi everyone! I’m currently on the camino and soon will be hitting the meseta. What worries me is that on stage 17 between Carrión - Terradillos there is a 17.2km stretch without any bars or bathroom. (mobile cafe only operates in the summer) During the camino so far (the last two weeks) many...

    Going separate ways on camino?

    Wow - this is really an amazing community! So much wisdom and encouragement! Thank you all so much!! I haven't started the journey yet but all my attention is on the camino, this forum, and any videos I can find. Last night I watched "The Way" again. I actually fell asleep during the movie last...

    Pórtico da Gloria closing today (Sept. 19 2018)

    Thanks @Stefystar - I was really surprised to hear this, I thought they had just recently finished renovating it and had reopened it this summer 2018. I don't understand why they are closing it again... I couldn't find any articles about it in detail, but yes, i also saw it in the Galician news...

    Going separate ways on camino?

    Hi everyone, thanks for all your replies! I have an update to this situation. I wrote an email to her yesterday with clear boundaries. I told her that I'm disappointed at her inviting her lover to this trip as it is not a trip to disney land. However she is free to do whatever she wants...

    Going separate ways on camino?

    Thanks for your comments @Michelle Menhennet and @Redhead Keith - you both are absolutely right! I already had my first lesson before I actually started walking the camino. I'm really excited about how this trip will unfold, and will stay open to learn and grow more during and after the camino.

    Going separate ways on camino?

    I (female, 40yrs old) have been preparing for CF for the last two years and looking forward to starting my journey next week! But in the last two weeks, all of a sudden, things changed: a friend that I went to highschool with whom I haven't really connected much for over 20yrs invited herself...
