    Need Last Minute Help with solo "Itinerary"

    Dear Friends, I will be on a plane in six days, Northern California to Madrid, for three weeks on the Camino. Filling in the Smart Traveler app has made me think twice about my solo Camino. I couldn't finish the application because I had no emergency contact in Spain. The Camino has provided...

    First time alone, departing from Lugo, family against it

    Planning to do the Camino Primitivo this year at the beggining of August, but since I would be travelling alone with a time limit (for that reason the departure must be done in Lugo, the plan is doing 5 stages) I believe I will have problems in convincing my family to let me go without feelling...

    Safe to walk alone?

    quick question if you don't mind guys... I've previously walked the Frances in 2010 as an 18 year old, alone at points along the trail and sometimes not even bumping into other pilgrims for the majority of the day. It just depended on how it worked out, I paid no attention to whether I was...

    Too cold to walk in October? Too deserted for a woman alone?

    Do plenty of people walk the Camino through the end of October? I am unsure as to whether or not the beginning of October is considered the "winter" people avoid walking during. I fly into Paris on September 17th and plan to make my way down to Saint Jean Pied De Port no later than September...

    Safety for young women travelling alone

    I'm sure this question has been asked countless times, but most of the threads I can find on solo female travelers are significantly older than myself - so some of the advice I feel doesn't cover my concerns/doesn't apply to me.
