    Buying a paper map

    I will be walking from La Virgen Del Camino just past Leon and trying to work out my own stages, but without a map it is doing my head in a bit...flipping from section to section in my Brierley guide or googling maps then zooming in and out 😬 Can anyone recommend a good old fashioned fold out...

    VF elevation maps

    Getting to the nitty-gritty stage of planning for the Via Francigena...my March departure is looming! A short time ago I found a useful website with lots of practical info & interactive maps for the entire VF. This included a series of elevation maps broken down into sections with scale adjusted...

    Primitivo facilities info

    ... from the Oviedo municipal albergue kitchen wall 😉😁😂. I wish I would have checked these against what was ready there in the villages but I didn't, sorry!

    Field-tested app reviews: an in-depth round-up

    There are so many Camino apps available now but I’ve not read any round-ups, so I’ve put my own one together which will hopefully be of use to pilgrims. It's not possible to review every app out there but these are my in-depth reviews of four of the most popular ones available for iOS. (Some of...

    Looking for a Children's map of Camino Frances

    We'll be walking CF in May, and I thought I would get a nice map for our grandchildren to follow along with us from home on the adventure. I need something with large print and enough detail for it to make sense (not a Spain map, or a Europe map, for instance). Anyone run across anything like...

    Another Invierno Guide

    Hello Everyone, The guidebook on this forum for the Invierno is certainly very helpful. But I also found this website that offers some maps as well as how-to-get-there hints and tips along with daily stages. I liked the daily maps as they help you situate yourself and plan the days walk...

    Getting Lost

    Hello friends, I'll be walking my first Camino along the Norther Route, and starting in mid-July. I'll be walking alone. I'm getting very excited! I'd like to seek the general wisdom of the forum re: how to avoid getting lost. I have no head for directions and modest map-reading skills. I've...

    Do It Yourself Guidebook

    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...

    Analog Maps in the Digital Age

    Having been born BC (before computers and calculators) I learnt to navigate with paper maps and they are still my preference even though I am an avid user of modern technology. One of my first careers was as a Drafting Officer with the Lands Department hand painting maps of the State. My last...

    Maps for a Blog before I begin...

    Hello, fellow travelers. I am setting up a simple travel blog, TravelPod, that supposedly enables me to post from my phone, my only camera. I would like to post a few Camino maps and wonder if there are sites that allow me to use their maps without copyright questions. My mini-blog, "Irenie's...

    Map Ideas and/or downloads

    Hi All, I begin my walk on April 8th. Thus far the only maps I've seen consist of on-line "where to find restaurants, albergues, pharmacias, etc."; all of no interest to me. Then there's The Guide book which has a map so tiny even with my reading glasses it is difficult. Here's my...
