    As a follow-up to my previous post about navigating the Camino with walking difficulties, I wanted to check with folks who've walked the last 100 km from Sarria to Santiago.

    Public Transport From Sarria To Santiago (the "wrong" Way!)

    We are finishing our Camino in Sarria and need to get public transport to Santiago on a Sunday to fly out early on a Monday. As far as I can see, the buses don't seem to run on a Sunday. Does anyone have any tips?

    Two Week Countdown!

    After months of planning and fretting (so much fretting!) my wife and I are finally a fortnight away from leaving for our Sarria - Santiago stretch on October 4th. And we may be ready for it, or as ready as one can be in a world where God laughs as man plans. I'd ask worriedly about bedbugs...

    Finished a few days ago... am I the only one who

    Loved my Camino from SJPDP to Sarria. Disliked the way it changed with the heavy crowds and noise after Sarria. Packs of teens from schools were singing or carrying music players. Loud talking adults. Tranquility lost to the herd. Now I'll say the groups were polite, just loud. At one...

    'The Spanish Route' - A New Route from Sarria?

    Checking the forum I have noticed that a number of people comment on the dramatic jump in numbers starting at Sarria. Almost every year the number of pilgrims/hikers that start in Sarria dominate those from any other location on the Camino Frances and this, I believe, causes the problems which...

    (O'Cebreiro to Santiago) OR (Sarria to Finisterre) with 7-8 days walking

    I am trying to decide which of these two routes to take as I have heard wonderful things both about O'Cebreiro and Finisterre. I'm not sure I can fit both in with only 7-8 days of walking available. I consider myself to be in very good walking shape but this will be my first camino and don't...
