    The Meseta; Burgos to Leon

    Having just returned from Spain, I would like to share with you some facts and thoughts: Two year ago, May 2016, I walked with two friends from Pamplona to Burgos, took a bus from Burgos to Leon, walked on to Santiago, then to Muxia and down to Finesterre. Altogether some 650 km. Last year, May...

    Transportation from Barcelona to Pamplona

    That's exactly what I did last year and two years ago; took the renfe train from sants to Pamplona. book your ticket on their website ahead of time; it's a lot cheaper/

    Finisterre or Muxia first?

    Did it two years ago, May 2016. We went to Muxia first, the reason being that it's a lot easier to return to SdC from Finisterre; many more buses and you don't have to book ahead of time, Buen Camino!

    One day ahead of me; I will arrive in Burgos with my wife on May 22 and start the next day. Walking to Leon, part I did not do in 2016 when I walked from Pamplona to Santiago - Muxia - Finistere...

    Burgos to Leon

    Two years ago I skipped this section due to lack of time. I was told it is the least interesting part of the camino and that's why I chose to skip it. Now I am thinking of walking it in mid-May with my wife. I would like to read what you people who have walked it think of my idea of walking just...

    Burgos to Leon

    In 2016 I walked with two friends from Pamplona to Santiago and then on to Muxia and Fistera. We skipped the Burgos - Leon part (took a bus) and now I am thinking of doing just this section. Any thoughts about it, anybody?

    Beilari in SJPP if dinner isn't an option?

    My wife and I stayed there last May; the place is O.K. but dinner is no big deal at all...

    If I arrive to SJPdP @ 8.45 will I get to Roncesvalles too late?

    make sure you reserve a bed at Orisson; it's a small place. By the way, Logrono is just about the ugliest town along the camino. last year I stayed at Viana, a few km before Logrono; a lovely little town...

    If I arrive to SJPdP @ 8.45 will I get to Roncesvalles too late?

    Sounds to me like you are looking for trouble; of the entire Camino, this is the hardest section to walk... I am no hero; on May 17th I will start from SJPP to Orisson and continue the next day to Roncesvalles.

    Is 18 Too Young To Go Alone?

    You are never alone on the Camino... Enjoy!

    considering canceling my trip :(

    Like many other people, I think you are over-rating the difficulties of walking the camino. I am a 68 year old man and last May I started off from Pamplona, skipped the Burgos - Leon stretch, continued to Santiago, from there to Muxia on the Atlantic coast and down to Finistere. Believe me; no...

    Bad Albergues

    There is nothing "charming" about filthy accomodations. Excpecting an albergue to be reasonably clean does not mean that a pilgrim is looking for luxury. You can be poor yet clean...
