    Santoña ferry operating?

    Hi, everyone! I’m on the Camino del Norte and saw on the Gronze website that the Santoña ferry between Laredo and Santoña doesn’t operate in the winter. Does anyone know if it’s currently operating? I’d love to take the coastal route to Noja that day!

    A Thank You for your Help and Link to Santiago Masters Thesis

    Hello, Back in the summer I had just come back from the Camino del Norte and asked the forum for help with my Masters thesis by completing a survey. That thesis is now written, marked, and I graduated in December! (I got a distinction, by the way ;)) Given the meagre word limit of 15,000...

    To finish where left off or to start over?

    I did the Camino del Norte mid June to August 2017. My first one. I never made it to Santiago de Compostela, getting on a bus finally in Oviedo to catch a friend ahead of me. Then a few more days of walking with them to Ribadeo and then home. The camino had its own plans! Now I find myself with...

    Hi everyone!! This is my first post - finally - but I've been lurking on these threads for quite some time and finally decided to start an account and ask a question!

I set out with the sole intention of walking the entire del Norte, but though the advice of a priest, I took a detour into the...

    Last year on my first Camino (CP) I was a little nervous about getting lost so I printed a rather detailed set of maps that I found on this web site: http://www.caminador.es/?page_id=117 . It seemed logical to also print my flight info and hotel reservations along with the various travel...
