    Camino of a Different Color

    We're taking six weeks (Lord WIlling) to scout all over Northern Spain, for a place to buy. Hoping to find a place with an extra bedroom (or two) and 2 or more bathrooms and...very close to a Camino route because, the ability to take in Peregrinos (but, not as in a full blown albergue) appeals...

    Three Caminos in One!

    Our first Camino Frances was in the autumn of 2015 and finally we are returning this spring. The decision-making about what Camino to walk (so many choices!) and whether Dave would come at all was complicated, but in the end we came up with a plan to walk three-caminos-in-one! 😀👣💥 We hope to...

    Help me choose my May-June 2019 camino (~18 days)

    TL;DR - Which camino would you recommend in late spring for about 18 days? Things have changed a bit since the last time I asked for advice about choosing a camino for 2019. Now, it looks like I’ll have a window to walk a solo camino in late May - early June while junglegirl is leading a tour...

    Crossing from Primitivo to Norte - the Camino Verde from Lugo to Sobrado

    Just to let folks know that I have completely updated the resource - José Manuel @xmsg and I walked the route in August and have updated all the directions, and refreshed the green arrows. It was fabulous. If you are planning the Primitivo and want to stay off the Frances as long as possible...

    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...

    Wisdom

    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...

    Hi all, I'm very sorry if this question has been asked many times before. I was wondering if I could get some advice? I'm flying into Madrid on the 21st and have 16 days until I fly out (2 days of those will be travelling to & from the camino, so 14 day walking/rest days). I was initially...
