    Is it possible to pay for a meal at an albergue you're not staying at?

    Being a vegetarian I like to plan ahead a little bit where my next meal is concerned. I notice that Albergue El Palo de Avellano in Zubiri is meant to do a nice vegetarian pilgrim's meal but I've booked a room in a different albergue for the night that doesn't do evening meals. Do albergues only...

    Food on the Norte

    So I have a few questions around the topic of food. For all you vegetarians, what kind of options were available as far as pilgrim meals go? I don't necessarily mind eating seafood here and there. It is coastal Spain after all, I would say if at any point in my life I should allow myself to...

    Vegetarian - to cook or not to cook?

    Hi I've searched for a thread around this but can't find one. I'm vegetarian and setting off soon for 3 weeks, starting StJPdP. I was thinking of taking my trusty trangia - my bag is being transported, so I won't have to carry it. How have other veggies found the food? Past experience of Spain...

    Hello Pilgrims! We are a month out from our month long journey and I am finally feeling those butterflies. Our family of four (two kids ages 4 and 2, and ourselves) have decided to take a 27 day journey and start in San Sebastian and end in Llandes. It is clear the Pilgirms are well taken care...

    Hello all. I will be traveling with a vegetarian next year and I am wondering if there will be any availability of pilgrim menus for her or if we should plan on making other eating arrangements. Also, does anyone have tips/hints/advice for vegetarians traveling the Camino? Thanks all!
