    First Pilgrim of 2021.... Sara?!?!?!

    The first pilgrim of the year is the first to arrive at the pilgrim office, not the first to arrive having begun in the calendar year.

    Camino Portugues - most scenic route with less road walking?

    Not a silly question at all. The Camino is sign-marked from Caminha, along the river, through Vila Nova de Cerviera, and into Valenca. This route is also well-documented in the Brierly guide. You simply follow the yellow arrows! :)

    VF from London

    I will begin the Pilgrim's Way from London's Southwark Cathedral to Cantebury and then onwards towards Rome next spring. Can someone advise where in England - other than Canterbury Cathedral - I should reasonably expect to receive a stamp? Canterbury, Shepardswel, Dover? Much thanks.

    Can anyone recommend some picture heavy resources of the Camino?

    Santiago to Finisterre to Muxia to Santiago

    I didn't have time to walk to the coast this year, so I would like to go back and walk to the coast. Can anyone provide answers to the two questions: 1) Can one walk the SdC -> Finisterre -> Muxia -> SdC loop and receive a Compostela on return to SdC? If so, where do you say you started? 2)...

    Why the Camino is not for us? Is Camino de Santiago worth it? | Our final thoughts, tips and advice

    Thank you for sharing. I don’t share your assessment but I do understand it. The Camino is unlike many other distance walks and it is very difficult to measure one by the other’s standards.

    The Longest Possible Walk in the World

    Who's up for this one? 14,334 miles / 23,068 km from L’Agulhas, South Africa, through the African continent, the Middle East, Southern Europe, and Asia before terminating near Magadan, Russia. In all, it would take 3+ years of continually walking 12+ miles daily. Video overview: More here...

    The Quirky Double Camino Pillars Between Tui and 5K Before O Porrino or When in Doubt always walk down hill :)

    I must have missed the confusion. Nearly everyone I met took the “Complimentary” route because they intended to do so. If not, there is usually someone recruiting pilgrims from an albergue who is happy to advise. :p

    Osprey Exos 48 good pack for Camino?

    I love my Exos pack (58L) for many of my hiking / camping trips. The Exos 38L would be a wonderful Camino pack; however please note there are no hipbelt pockets on this pack.

    Interesting Hi-Vis clothing seen...

    I hike a lot in the national forest during hunting season, so Blaze Orange is the preferred color. I don't mind it and the shirts help make you visible to cars (and hunters!) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DY8PXSO/?tag=casaivar02-20

    What’s doing at the Pilgrim Office...

    Thank you so much for this update, @t2andreo. May I please ask: if a Pilgrim receives the Compostella at 18:00 approximately, is their name read at a pilgrims mass this year (given ongoign renovations) and - if so - what Mass, when and where? Kind thanks.
