    Post-Camino Gear Review. 5 kilo (11 pound) pack base weight.

    I always see pre-Camino gear requests, but rarely post-Camino gear reviews. I did one years ago after my first Camino (Frances), but now, after my fourth Camino (San Salvador and Primitivo), I thought it was a good time to update the list. This list is for a recent pilgrimage, Sept. 4-14...

    Camino del Norte or Camino Primitivo?

    Hello, Pilgrims, It's that time of year again and I'm back to deciding which Camino I'll walk this year. Last year I walked my first Camino (Porto-Santiago-Fisterra-Muxía) in September, and this year I'm considering the Camino del Norte OR the Camino Primitivo in August. I found the Portugués...

    Arriving in Oviedo around 7 pm on June 6th

    Hello, my friend and I completed the Camino Frances in 2016 and now we're tackling the Primitivo. I'm a bit anxious at arriving so "late" in Oviedo and possibly not being able to get beds at the cheaper accommodations. Should I book us two beds to guarantee it, or take our chances? Everything I...

    Which Camino - Portugues, Norte, Frances or Other?

    Hi all, I'm going to be kids free in a couple of years and want to enjoy some "me time"! So 2022 looks like being a great year for a walk after the holy year in 2021. I completed the Frances by bike in 2017 over 12 days and don't think I really did the pilgrimage justice, so I'm thinking...

    New Publicity for the Camino Primitivo

    OutsideOnline just published, “Th 25 Best Hikes in the World Right Now”, I wonder if this will increase the number of pilgrims on the Primitivo or potentially the Norte all together. I don’t think this list is in any specific order, but interesting to note the location of the Primitivo amongst...

    April/May

    Hi! My sister and I will be walking the Camino Primitivo this year for one week from the end of April into the beginning of May. We'll be starting in Lugo. Because of an accident I'm not physically able to do a longer camino. Will it be necessary for us to buy new shoes and backpacks, since...

    Advice in starting point for Camino Primitivo

    I need some advice regarding where should I start for El Camino primitivo ? In Oviedo or Villaviciosa ? I'll be flying directly to Asturias aeroport, but I don't know if it is worth it to go to Villaviciosa from Asturias aeroport? Do I miss something interesting in the way from Villaviciosa to...

    Crossing from Primitivo to Norte - the Camino Verde from Lugo to Sobrado

    Just to let folks know that I have completely updated the resource - José Manuel @xmsg and I walked the route in August and have updated all the directions, and refreshed the green arrows. It was fabulous. If you are planning the Primitivo and want to stay off the Frances as long as possible...

    Packing List - What's missing?

    Hi all, Long time reader, first time poster. I'll be walking my first Camino this June/July (Norte, Primitivo and Finisterre). I'm coming in around 7.5kgs skin-out weight before food/water, so about 5kg pack weight depending on what I'm wearing. The weight is okay for my size, but would love...

    Would my answer be the Camino? Find out by reading my blog. ;)

    https://mycaminospring2017.wordpress.com/ A few years ago, I was one of many folks who watched “The Way” with Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez. If you saw it, you were probably curious and inspired as was I. I immediately put it on my bucket list. Things were going well in my life: I had...

    Primitivo in August (first camino)

    Hello all! My partner and I are setting out on our first camino in August. We have been dreaming about this for a long time and are incredibly excited. I have a few questions whose answers keep eluding me when I read other threads. Thanks in advance! 1. Is there an easy way to get from the...

    Del Norte, Primitivo, Portuguese or Francesco

    Hi all, My partner and I are looking to walk our next Camino in August 2018, after having previously walked Francés in 2016 and 2011. We’d like to explore a different route and we are both fit and open to something a little more challenging the Francés. Our favourite things about the Camino...

    Bed bug advice along Camino Primitivo and Norte

    Hi, everyone! I am walking the Camino del Norte in March and meeting my husband early April in Oviedo to walk the Camino Primitivo to Santiago. We walked the Camino Frances in 2015 and got bed bugs in Sarria. We'd like to avoid them if at all possible this time. I ordered a travel-sized bed...

    Are there GPS waypoints for the Primitivo?

    Do any of you know if there are downloadable GPS waypoints for the Primitivo? I will be hiking next May (my first Camino!) over 14 days from Oviedo. I am hoping to use GPS as a backup in case the routing is not clear. Any help will be greatly appreciated... Tim

    Backpack transfer on Camino Primitivo?

    Hi all, I am thinking about walking the Camino Primitive in June/July 2018 (you know what they say, the best cure for Camino-homesickness is to plan another one!). I walked the Camino Frances in 2016 and the Camino Portugues in 2017 (just arrived back). Because of a dodgy left knee I simply...
