    Casa Fernanda

    My prayers go out to the entire family. Many, many pilgrims owe them for support and a home away from home while in Caminho. God bless them all and a quick recovery for all.

    How steep is steep?

    On occasion, I like to go back to the genesis of a thread and thank folks as a Way if saying “hello”. As to the comments concerning hiking in the Netherlands, South Florida,etc. A very good friend is a Korps Mariniers Colonel. On a visit to his unit at Texel (elev 7 ft/2m) he had a few days off...

    One more fix, please: And a Camino travelling101 from an oldtimer to newbies.

    Brother, you have successfully combined travel savvy, common sense and understanding of the insecurities of many first time pilgrims into an easily understood few paragraphs. Well done! Buen Camino Arn

    One Day When I Was Younger One day when I was younger…em, now what's that I just said? I woke, washed up, zipped up my fly and found I’m still in bed. A second go, feet on the floor, a bounce, then on my feet The Camino waits, and well it should, tie up one boot…repeat. My pack waits in...

    Coastal or Central, for best scenery?

    I like the interior. That said, it's directly connected to a visit to the Casa da Fernanda. IMHO.

    To be honest...I have to be in the mood for Paella. Then again, I am always in the mood for food.

    First Camino experience

    The Camino does as the Camino wills! Each of my five Caminos were begun thinking I’d had a good plan. You would think by then I’d have a great plan. Nope...although I gained in knowledge I was still struck by the many, and varied, NEW experiences each step along the Way. Open your mind to the...

    Fiction Merchant's List

    Thank you all. I must give credit to Sil. Back in 2009 Sil was lamenting the growth in Camino books that appeared to cover the same templates: the Camino changed my life...the Camino didn’t change my life. I will walk and wonder again...I’ll never walk again. I found new spirituality on the...

    Fiction Merchant's List

    A personal pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago thrusts Alan Merchant back into his former life as a military-political intelligence analyst, placing him front and center, leading a coalition of law enforcement and military special operations operators whose mission is to thwart a suspected...

    Lourdes, Oct. 1st 2018

    Hi, In my memory, there are few pilgrims that begin in Lourdes. More than a few start in Le Puy and travel through Lourdes. Not that Lourdes isn't a good place to begin. I was last in Lourdes this May and spoke with a few pilgrims on Camino. None had started in town. Buen Camino Arn

    Weather? Ski Jacket vs Rain jacket

    Light fleece, quality windbreaker, poncho “Altus”, and a “lifesaver” (you may call it a trash bag). When worn separately, or in combination you can comfortably trek in adverse weather. Light weight, easy to maintain with the”lifesaver” providing a waterproof vapor barrier that can,indeed, save...
