    That's that, then

    At the pilgrim mass today in Santiago there was mention of "uno del Reino Unido, desde Barcelona". And that was the end of this year's camino. Now I must go home and get on with the tiresome necessity of earning enough money to pay for next year's. Difficult to see how anything will come close...

    Camino Choices

    Having finished (sort of) the Camino Frances Oct 2015, I want to return for more next September. I turned 70 on this Camino and ended up with severe tendinitis in one ankle and opposite knee. I rested and took transport after Carrion to Sarria but felt a bit like I "cheated" even though I did...

    Now that the Camino Frances is gaining so much in popularity, two things have happened. First, there is a much larger number of "newbies" on the forum who are looking for information about "the Camino" and are planning to walk "the Camino." But then second, since so many of us have been back...

    bus from Casar de Caceres

    Obviously there is a fancy-schmancy bus station in this wee town/village/hamlet. However, I cannot find any information about buses leaving from there - all the info I have suggests the bus leaves from Caceres! If that is the case, is it worth walking to Casar de Caceres or should we just skip...

    Well, I'm Back!

    It was a fine and lovely Camino, in true Scruff style. Started in Bilbao but no, didn't go the Camino del Norte. Went south of Pamplona to Sangüesa (Zangoza in the Basque) but no, didn't follow the Camino Aragonés. Back to Pamplona where yes I did actually begin the Camino Francés – for a while...

    Soto de luina to Cadevedo disused alternative

    When I walked the above section in 2010, the hopitalero at the Soto de Luina albergue advised the pilgrims to go the road way and also to avoid the off road way, it being overgrown and poorly waymarked, being a good pilgrim I followed his advice and followed the road. However 3 pilgrims from...

    Hospitales or Pola de Allande?

    There's a bunch of forum members planning a Camino Primitivo, and I've recently gotten some questions privately on this particular issue, so I thought I'd just start a thread and let others share their opinions. So, as most Primitivo planners know, when you get to the little hamlet of Borres...
