    Semana Santa

    Hola! Does anyone have any particular suggestions for the Portuguese during Semana Santa? I was in Jaca and Pamplona last year during Holy Week and REALLY enjoyed the nightly processions, etc. Does Portugal celebrate to the same extent, or would I be better planning to get to Tui by then...

    Tui to Santiago

    I believe Easter is April 16th this year. Holy week was wonderful in Pamplona last year; I'm trying to decide whether it would be better to be in Portugal or Spain this year. Has anyone been on the Portugues during Semana Santa? Any particularly good town festivities? Many thanks!

    Camino Portugues In April

    So glad to hear about other peregrinos doing the Portuguese in April! I'm planning to start from Porto about April 1. Has anyone been on this Camino during Holy Week? Last year I was in Jaca the first half of the week and Pamplona the second before starting the Frances. The Processions were...

    "Spiritual" Preparation

    When I first learned about the Camino de Santiago de Compostela in a Smithsonian Magazine article almost 25 years ago, I knew I had to go. After several plans disrupted (primarily by friends dropping out) I'm now set to begin on March 27. The delays have been propitious; I now have the luxury...

    Crocs or sandals?

    ok -- I have a really silly question. When you all are talking about crocs, are you talking about the traditional/original clod-type crocs? Or the "hurache" ones? Can one walk days on the camino in one or the other? Or are they JUST for non-camino use (i.e. auberge)? Having trouble finding...

    Visigothic jewel south of Burgos

    Thanks for the insightful -- and encouraging! -- reply! Strange: I couldn't find the kindle version of G&D on the UK Amazon site, but it is on Amazon US! Great suggestion! Yes, I'm capable of wanting to do/see too much, but it's all just so fascinating! And I hope we meet sometime on one or...
