    Worth skipping parts of the French Camino for Finisterre?

    Hi pilgrims! I am walking the French Camino (I’m at O Cebreiro) and am thinking of skipping some parts between Sarria and Santiago in order to go to Finisterre instead.

    Injured my back and need to shorten my walk - which parts can be shortened (by bus...)?

I started my Camino in Leon and unfortunately injured my back (I think I pulled it :( ) so now I’m forced to wait and heal around Astoria for a couple of days, which means I will shorten my walk by 2 days to make it to Santiago in time. (Btw I wish I...

    7 Month Old - stroller or carrier?

    I am considering walking a 10 day section of the Camino in the fall of 2019. My baby will be 7 months old, and my parents will be joining me (both experienced pilgrims). Is this selfish? How can I prepare to be a good pilgrim? Should I go somewhere else for a 10 day pilgrimage? Which pilgrim is...

    Need any advice for an inexperienced student group hoping to hike 4 days on their first camino

    Greetings friends, This is my first post here. I have never walked the Camino, but I am helping to arrange a group of students to do a short section. I know, this sounds strange, but let me explain. I work for a gap year organization. We send students on 3 month trips all over the world. For...

    I met someone on the camino, never got their contact details and would like to find them somehow.

    I made a friend on the camino, and would love to get in contact with them! I know what albergue we stayed in, would they be able to give me contact details if they booked it via email/phone? Or would they not be allowed disclose that information? I didn't even get a second name, but I know where...
