    Help needed for my short film about the Camino (France)

    So you’ve got home from the Camino and been asked the question “how was it”? I have found answering this question to be difficult. Generally people want something brief and to the point. But there are no quick answers that could do my experiences justice. If you’re talking to someone who has...

    The Meseta vs. The VdlP from Seville to Salamanca...

    For those of you have have walked both, a sincere and simple question; I am aware of the infrastructure differences/issues but my question drives to the experiential matters.... "Does the VdlP walk have the same "mind-emptying" effect/impact as the Meseta?" Thank you in advance for your...

    Meseta in October?

    Greetings! My wife and I walked the CF from SJPdP to Finesterre last summer except we rented bikes from Burgos to Leon. Now we want to go back and walk that part. What's the weather like in October on the Meseta? Alternatively, how hot might it get in August? We're thinking of walking the Norte...

    Abuela on the meseta

    After walking Roncevalles to Logrono at age 68 in 2013, Logrono to Burgos in 2014 and Sarria to Santiago in 2015 to be with St. James on my 70th birthday, I want to go back to the Camino and do stretches I haven't walked before. I hope to walk from Burgos to Sahagun in October. The sparseness...

    The Meseta in spring

    I've just spent a glorious week crossing the vast plains between Burgos and Leon. When I walked the meseta in 2012 it was late September, post harvest, and the land was tired, brown and golden yellow. In spring 2016 it was a fresh green world. This short post on my blog gives a flavour of what...

    Meseta weather - mid-to-late March

    Hello all, Myself and a friend will be walking for a week or so from Burgos next month, starting on March 18. I'm wondering what sort of weather we can expect, beyond the usual sound advice to expect anything? I walked this route twice before, but those time were in May and July, so I'm...

    Baggage weight

    I weighed my baggage and it is already more than 10% of my weight, that doesn't include yet the shampoo, soap, shoes, mobilephone and the charger. Since i will be taking my journey in the middle of August maybe it is not a good idea to take a fleece jacket. Is there an area along Camino Fances...

    A wintery meseta

    I am not the blog writing type but I will drop by here from time to time over the next few weeks with brief updates of my walk from Logrono to Leon. The winter walkers who have posted practical information on this forum have been invaluable to my own walk preparations and so I wanted to be able...
