    Meeting a pal mid-way

    Evening all, I’m walking the Camino Frances starting at St John Pied de Port on 29th March. I have a pal who wants to meet me en route for a week of so.

    Solo Camino - time scale and camping

    Good day kind reader, I've decided to undertake the Camino Francés at the end of March/beginning of April 2018.

    Highways and sigh-ways on the Via De La Plata

    Hello all, Oh, the amount of my own work I'm behind on now from reading through this wonderful forum! On a very sudden urge, I've decided to walk the Via De La Plata this year in May. I'm not sure why I've chosen this path, but it seems right to me. 'The Call', I suppose some people may...

    Albergue leaving time

    Hi! I heard that there were albergues where you couldn't leave until a certain hour in the morning. Anyone has had this experience? There is a website that lists albergues and sometimes, they mention a 'compulsory leaving time', and I wonder if it's a time you have to have left by, or if it's...

    Suggestions for a rookie :)

    Good day, I'll happen to have some free days in October, from 4th to 15th, and I have serious thoughts about spending them on the Camino Frances (a long dream of mine!)
