    Booking beds or taking it as it comes?

    Hello! I am going to walk from Ourense to Santiago with two friends next week (July). We only have four days to do it, so we kind of know already know the stages we need to take every day and they are quite long. I know this is not the "real" pilgrim spirit, but it's the time we have, and living...

    Ourense to Santiago

    My wife and I walked from Ourense to Santiago starting on 28 June and ending 2 July. The weather was not too hot and excellent for walking. The camino generally runs through beautiful countryside and small towns and was very quiet. We encountered only one fellow pilgrim on foot although...

    A good first Camino? Ourense-SdC

    I just walked this route in the last week or so, and it struck me that it would be a great option for those looking for a short 'introduction' to the Camino. It's a pretty route, not too challenging after the initial climb out of Ourense, and with some options for distances to walk each day...

    Going in and out of Ourense

    Since there is a fair number of people who are walking the Vdlp this year, I thought I would offer my two cents on Ourense -- these topics have been discussed before but I think bear repeating. First, going in to Ourense. There is a lengthy discussion here...

    VdlP via Ourense or Astorga

    I leave the UK for Sevilla on 13th October but havn't decided whether to go to Santiago via Ourense or Astorga. I'm slightly inclined to go via Astorga so that I can meet more pilgrims as there probably wont be that many on the VdlP. I'll make my decision en route but has anyone here done both...

    Going to Santiago through Ourense (VDP) or Sarria (Frances)?

    Hello fellow pilgrims, next week I'm going to start my Camino for the first time and I still have some doubts, so I hope you can help me. I have only 5 days to do the Camino so there isn't many possibilities for me. Due to this fact, I was going to start in Sarria and walk to Santiago. The...

    More pleasant route into Ourense

    The signed route into Ourense is almost as unpleasant as the Camino into Burgos. However, zooming in on Google Earth, there seems to be a footpath/cycle path to the left of the road on both sides of a stream leading into the centre of the city. This may be accessed soon after leaving Seixalbo...
