    Hi everyone, I am hoping to do the final stretch of the walk beginning February 28, finishing no later than the 5th of March. As a solo female walker and it being still technically winter, is this a good time to go, or would it be better to wait until April? I will be traveling and in Madrid...

    Please tell me about your early march Camino Frances

    Hello! I've dreamt of walking the camino since meeting boy in my early twenties (now my husband) who had just done it and felt so passionate about it. We have three kids now and I'd assumed I'd have to wait to hike till they were older or even when my husband and I are retired! But! My...

    Camino in Feb -March ❤️

    One year ago I had just made the decision I was going on the Camino. I left on Feb 24th and it was incredible. The people, the crazy weather, the places and the feeling that I can't describe as you wander along contemplating life other than it's a great one. I learned a lot about the Camino on...

    Bed bugs in March

    A few days ago I stayed in the Albergue in Azofra: nice place, good ambiance, helpful hospitaleiros, etc. I enjoyed especially the 2-person-per-room arrangement. Unfortunately, I was bitten during the night. I didn't report it immediately because at first I didn't relate it to bed bugs, which I...

    Experiences of walking in Galicia in March?

    I am walking from Astorga to Santiago from the middle of March 2015 and plan to arrive in Santiago around the 25th, so before Easter, before the crowds and also before most albergues are open. That in itself is not a problem, we intended to get private rooms anyway, but the weather thing...

    Day 1. I planned to stop in Peralada but it was a warm weekend and Peralada is a very pretty, touristy little town, popular with the French so there was only expensive accommodation left. I ended up walking beyond Vilabertran, to a Comercial park just outside Figueres and stayed at the Hotel...
