    I am starting the Camino in March. I've left ordering a guidebook too late given the sipping time and as I will be in Madrid for a week prior to setting out I'm wondering if the Wise pilgrim guide to the Frances route is available in Madrid in English.

    Any route news?

    Hi everyone, I'm sorry to have spent so little time on this board over the last 12 months. A new job consumed a lot of my time, and walks to Jerusalem and on the Via Podiensis (the latter just finished, with a group of high schoolers) ate up the rest. Now, though, I'm excited to start focusing...
