    Puente le Reina ‘German Church’

    I believe the arched structure over the doors are called "archivolts."

    who knew it would cost so much!

    My advice is to sign up for alerts from Scott’s Cheap Flights. I can’t believe the deals they find. It isn’t for everyone, because the booking windows are typically very short. There is a free version that gives you about 1/3 of the deals and a modestly priced version that gives you all the...

    Route from San Sebastian/Irun to Pamplona?

    Does anyone know of an established walking route from San Sebastian or Irun to Pamplona (for the purpose of connecting to the CF)? If so, is it waymarked with albergues? Thanks for any help.

    San Sebastian to SJPdP?

My thinking is to transit from San Sebastian airport to Hendaye, train from Hendaye to Bayonne, stay overnight in Bayonne, and then...

    Post-Camino Vacation Advice Sought

    Hoping to walk my second camino in May 2019. Hoping to have my wife meet me in SdC. It will be our 40th wedding anniversary. Looking to treat ourselves to a week's vacation at some seaside village in Spain or Portugal. Any locations/hotels anyone can recommend?

    Some random Camino observations

    From my 2016 pilgrimage journal on this question: The villages on the Meseta typically don't appear until you're right on top of them, as they are tucked into valleys where the rivers flow. We found ourselves asking "Where is that village anyway?" And then there it would be. This was the case...

    LIVE from the Camino Graffiti...and meaness

    I appreciated your post, and thought back to the comment I made in my pilgrimage journal from my 2016 camino: "One of the interesting aspects of the Camino de Santiago is the degree to which the way has been festooned with graffiti of every imaginable style, degree of sophistication, aesthetic...

    (very) early morning flight out of Santiago

    My friend and I stayed in a hotel in Lavacolla the night before our early morning flight. We woke up and walked to the airport - perhaps 30 minutes. An easy walk - it felt like the right way to end our pilgrimage.

    How do you prepare for the faith journey of the Camino?

    Dear Dave, Yours is an important question - perhaps the most important question. Others have provided interesting food for thought, and I recommend you give serious consideration to their suggestions. The Camino is - or can be - a kind of long-form retreat. If you were going on a retreat...
