    Wailing woman in Sarria

    Hi everyone! First post from me. I'm a solo female traveller and arrived in Sarria yesterday to start my walk today. I'm staying in an albergue on the camino and last night an old woman started wailing and singing and playing a tin whistle for a few hours in the middle of the night. I booked a...

    Via de Plata in October

    I fly into Madrid on October 1 and have a train booked to Seville. After reading other threads I am having doubts that I have picked the right time, and there will be nights I will be alone in the albergues. Also I have only walked the Frances once, and others seem to do 3 or 4 other Caminos...

    Is it safe for a woman to walk alone on Camino?

    I am planning to walk this year on Camino Frances. I've read some post from past years that is it pretty safe for women to walk alone, but I just wanted to see if any woman from this forum had a recent experience and how I felt. I don't know...I just maybe need some reinforcements that all is...

    Looking for a walk partner

    Hi, I'm Roxanne, an 18 year old woman from Belgium and I leave the 4th of Augstus to walk the Camino Frances from Sint Jean Pied de Port. Recently, many people warned me for problems on the road, specifically with men. That's why I'd feel more safe when I knew someone to walk with or behind...
