    Bed bug advice along Camino Primitivo and Norte

    Hi, everyone! I am walking the Camino del Norte in March and meeting my husband early April in Oviedo to walk the Camino Primitivo to Santiago. We walked the Camino Frances in 2015 and got bed bugs in Sarria. We'd like to avoid them if at all possible this time. I ordered a travel-sized bed...

    Arriving 10pm in Santander. Where to stay? >> Labaniego, Vadiniense, San Salvador

    Hello all, this year, since I have brushed up on my Spanish, I decided to do my very first camino in Spain. I have planned to travel with Ryanair on a mid August Sunday from London to Santander, but the plane arrives late at 21:45. I wonder where to spend the first night. Is too late to turn up...

    Advice for Walking the Camino del Norte

    Last summer (2016) I walked the Camino del Norte, Camino Primitivo and Camino Finisterre. The beauty of the camino is that you never know where the path will take you. 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...

    Riverside Walk Out Of Lugo Re-routed?

    Just had lunch today with José Manuel @xmsg and he told me that he had heard that the camino Primitivo is being rerouted away from the pleasant riverside path out of Lugo. This is due to a landowner challenging the path in the courts. Has anyone seen any of the waymarkers being changed lately...

    The old 'mojones' or way markers that are being removed on 2016 and 2017 have a look of wisdom and experience that the new ones will take their time to get for themselves. May this be a tribute to them. Photographed near Ferreira, in the Camino Primitivo, just a few days before it was removed.

    From Oviedo to Lugo, May 2016

    Hi: My son and I walked from Oviedo to Lugo this last May. I flew from Mexico City to Madrid, and he came from California and met me at Chamartin. We had a great time, but it was a pretty difficult walk for me. I carried a small video camera and made a nice movie with the clips, using Adobe...

    Has anyone tried the Wool Caminos?

    I saw this intriguing framed map on the wall of the municipal albergue in Tineo, made out of wool and pearly beads! Who made the map? I think one is the Pola route and one the Hospitales, but what about the other and the crossover? Has anyone on the forum tried these routes? Does any...

    Cold on July mornings?

    Hi all! I'm walking the Camino Primitivo starting in early July, and I'm wondering if I can get away without a jacket (other than a lightweight rain jacket). I'd rather not carry one around, especially if I don't get much use out of it. I'm from North Carolina, but I feel like I'm pretty...
