    Arriving in Oviedo around 7 pm on June 6th

    Hello, my friend and I completed the Camino Frances in 2016 and now we're tackling the Primitivo. I'm a bit anxious at arriving so "late" in Oviedo and possibly not being able to get beds at the cheaper accommodations. Should I book us two beds to guarantee it, or take our chances? Everything I...

    Camino Olvidado | Necessity of booking accommodation in advance

    Dear fellow pilgrims, I am planning to walk part of the Camino Olvidado the first week in July, starting in Bilbao. I've seen that there are only a few albergues/hostels/hotels along the way. Would you recommend me to book hostels/hotels in advance? Somehow I don't like the thought of booking...

    Booking accommodation in Easter week?

    Hi! I'm setting out on my first Camino in the end of March from Burgos. My boyfriend can only get a few days of work, and is planning to meet me in Sarria (the 16th of April) and we'll do the rest of the walk together. That means we will arrive in Santiago either Easter day (21st) or the day...

    Lists of dog-friendly aubergues

    I would not advice anyone to take a dog along, but that is besides the point. On our Finnish Camino group (FB) there is a discussion about walking with dogs. What kind of resources are there along the camino? Do we, e.g., have a list of places where dogs can stay overnight? Addresses of vets?

    We've just finished Stage 1 of the Camino del Norte (CDN), walking from San Sebastian - Gijon during May/June 2017. Sorry, but it's taken me a while to put together the list of where we ate, drank, and slept as I've rummaging through numerous crumpled receipts and trying to piece these...

    Pilgrim's Halt on Voie de Tours

    Greetings to all pilgrims. I have a dream to open a Pilgrim's Halt in the Charente Maritime about 4km on from Mirambeau. I've spoken to a lot of Pilgrims on this route and it seems there is a lack of reasonable accommodation in some sections. The idea would be to offer bed, evening meal...

    Late(r) Arrival in Roncesvalles

    To start my Camino I am planning to take the first train from Bayonne, pop by the Pilgrim Office in SJPDP, and then get up to Roncesvalles. It says the train (temporarily a bus) arrives in SJPDP just after 9:00, so figuring getting on the road by 10:00. If it takes eight hours-ish to get up to...
