    2016 Happy New Year

    Before I get caught up in our (quiet and understated) New Year celebrations, I've taken a moment to reflect upon my year and my Camino... wonderful memories of an extraordinary walk... and my Camino continues still... I'd also like to acknowledge all the help, wisdom and support on this Forum...

    Suggestions for a rookie :)

    Good day, I'll happen to have some free days in October, from 4th to 15th, and I have serious thoughts about spending them on the Camino Frances (a long dream of mine!) (I'm fitted, I like to trek but never had such an experience before.) Now my question is: what would be the best way to use...

    Hi all! I'll be starting the Camino Frances from SJPP on November the 10th, 2015, and have been inspired by these fabulous threads to begin a list of pilgrims who are walking at around the same time (including late October 2015 and early December 2015, given we'll likely cross paths). My hope...

    Too cold to walk in October? Too deserted for a woman alone?

    Do plenty of people walk the Camino through the end of October? I am unsure as to whether or not the beginning of October is considered the "winter" people avoid walking during. I fly into Paris on September 17th and plan to make my way down to Saint Jean Pied De Port no later than September...

    here's to sharing a glass of vin, pan et fromage.

    Hi guys, Sort notice, but I'm heading to Montpellier on the 18th June. Will head to Arles for a night before heading West for a couple of weeks - I fly out from Rodez on 3rd July - it would be lovely to share a little of the way with Pilgrims 'other' if they're choosing this time too?

    250,000 pilgrims in the year 2015

    Time for some wild ass guess (wag) predictions for the new year! Due to demographic, social and economics reasons, 2015 will be the year that over 250,000 pilgrims (and as many as 275,000) will arrive into Santiago and receive their Compostela. During the peak season from mid April through to...
