    Efrén Gonzáles' youtube/Camino vlogs.

    Hi all, Just want to do a quick shout out to Efren Gonzales' youtube channel. Other threads on this forum have mentioned his stellar documentation of his 2017 Camino Frances pilgrimage, capturing magnificent shots with his drone. I personally think it's the best self-documented series out there...

    10 days without sleeping bag or liner?

    So unexpectedly I now have 10 spare days between my Europe travels at the beginning of September. I travel only with hand luggage (aka the trusty 40L hiking backpack) and I absolutely do not have space for a sleeping bag or liner which I would have no use for outside of the camino; however, the...

    Albergue in Trabadelos

    So tonight I'm staying in Albergue Camino y Leyenda... I do not recommend it. See, it's clean, charming, the owner is very nice, the whole upstairs is the sleeping area, kitchen, sitting area, and bathrooms. Great little place, and I'd love it, if it weren't for the dog. I'm a little baffled...

    Up to date info Montamarta albergues

    The municipal albergue has opened finally today. I don't know what it is like but the alternatives are not good: I and many others have been warned away from La Bruñeda due to the behaviour of the owner ; Tío Bartoli is freezing, has a very aggressive angry man (though Ana who is in charge is...

    Albergue Oliva de Palencia

    The albergue and all other accommodation in Oliva de Palencia IS FULL. Moreover the tourist places nearby are as well. The woman who runs the former is rude and completely unhelpful (not just to me but other peregrinos and local people). Against the Spanish tourist association rules, she fills...

    Camino Portugues late December

    Dear all, We plan to hike on the Camino Portugues for five to six days after Christmas - 12/27 to 01/01. Will most of the albergues be closed then?

    Hello all! I'm headed to Irún on Wednesday and had planned on staying in the Albergue Municipal. However, it looks like it will be closed already for the year--does anyone know of an alternative place to stay? I've tried calling the Municipal but cannot get through. Thanks! HJ

    What to do?

    Only twice all the way from St Jean to Finisterra was I unhappy with my albergue. One albergue was not very clean. I had a hard time obtaining toilet paper from the hospitalero and the showers were awful (mildew and flooded the whole bathroom.). Another, I knew the second I walked in. It had an...

    New route from Leiro to Hospital de Bruma/Meson do Vento

    Camino Ingles - new route from Leiro to Bruma. For those soon walking the Camino Ingles I'd like to reassure you about this new route - I think it is excellent and of great benefit to pilgrims. Although there is still the elevation it is over a much longer distance and therefore is much more...
