    The Meseta in spring

    I've just spent a glorious week crossing the vast plains between Burgos and Leon. When I walked the meseta in 2012 it was late September, post harvest, and the land was tired, brown and golden yellow. In spring 2016 it was a fresh green world. This short post on my blog gives a flavour of what...

    Gaiters or not ?

    I was shopping rain gear the other day and looking at the Gaiters at REI and the salesperson/experienced hiker said I only need gaiters for snow hiking. I am curious if they are standard equipment for April rain along the Camino.

    Weather and albergues on Camino Norte in April 2016

    Apologies if this has already been asked elsewhere. I plan to begin walking the Norte in April - I have 12 days so aim to walk Irun to Santander if possible, a little shorter if needed. Am I right in assuming weather related problems are likely to be wind and rain rather than snow now? And...

    VDLP APRIL 2016...Seville...Who's starting out on the camino in April?

    Hi Guys, I walked the Camino Frances from St Jean to Santiago in October 2014 with a very good friend. I can't even begin to describe what an amazing experience it was for me and my friend too, considering every aspect, it was truly a life changing discovery. 780kms of discovery on your journey...
