    Hello! I walked the Via de la Plata from Sevilla to Santiago in the spring of 2015 and am looking to go back for seconds - this time I'm considering walking the Camino Frances, but am concerned about the crowding. I am looking for a more spiritual experience and have heard that nothing compares...

    Via Agusta in December

    Hi George, That certainly looks doable, though I was originally avoiding the Camino Mozarbe because it passes through the mountains (at least the route from Almaria does) and I would be likely to get snow that time of year. Can you send me the link to the blog you spoke about ? Thanks! A

    Via Agusta in December

    Hi George, First off, there is no shame in walking some parts! Each Camino is specific to the person and if you were honoring yourself and needed to walk, that is OK. I walked the VdlP about a year and half ago and have already done the Sevilla-Merida stent. I was hoping for something...

    April 3-May 12 on VdlP, route switch from Camino del Norte

    Hi Michelle! I think now that I've decided to walk the VldP I will be investing in a sunhat. I used to work in the outdoor industry and am not much of a believer in sock liners, but I do plan on using the Vasaline trick. When are you beginning your pilgrimage in April--perhaps we will be each...

    Feminine Hygiene on the Camino

    Thank you everybody! It has been my experience traveling outside of the USA, though I haven't spent much time in Europe, that tampons are not readily available overseas. I have also changed my route from the Camino del Norte to the Via de la Plata route out of Seville. Anybody have any idea what...

    Walking in Chacos?

    Hello all, I have recently changed my route from the Camino del Norte, to the Via de la Plata route from Sevilla. I am considering doing the entire walk in Chaco sandels--which I regularly hike in at home in the summer time. This might be stupid, as I'm walking 1,000 kilometers. My other option...

    Lots of last minute prep questions

    Thank you for the advice! I am also curious if I need to invest in a real guide book for the camino del norte. At this point, I just planned on taking a map and a list of albergues along the route. I plan to choose my destination each morning rather than having set stopovers before I am on the...

    Holy Week in Seville

    Hello! I haven't booked a room but planned to stay with people on Couchsurfing.org. Do you know how/if public transport will be affected at all by the festivities? I would like to travel to Irun on Saturday before Easter so I can start my Camino on Easter itself. Any ideas?
