@Wendy Werneth and I are leaving Lisbon tomorrow on the overnight train to Madrid, staying a night in Madrid to see some friends, taking the train to Oviedo on Thursday and starting the Camino Primitivo on Friday! Today I bought a new buff to celebrate the start of a new camino!

Buen camino, Nick and Wendy, looking forward to hear how it goes. Either in real time or afterwards, you choose. :)

You know, this post reminded me that I learned on my last camino that LT is still sending out the graffiti buff. https://www.caminodesantiago.me/community/resources/camino-buff.80/
I have had two of them and lost them both, the first on day 2 of the Olvidado, and the second a little later, on the way to Finisterre or Muxia. I always think they look like such a good piece of equipment, though I can't manage to hang onto it.

If you ask nicely maybe you'll get one before your next Camino

Thanks Laurie! I will only have my phone with me as a writing tool, so I will try to provide live updates but they won't be extensive. If nothing else we can talk about it and your Camino Mozárabe over a bottle of red the next time you're in Lisbon!

And in case you want to pick up a buff the next time you're here, El Corte Inglés has Camino-themed ones, although there were only three different ones today, not as many as there were last year.

I have one of LTfit's original Camino graffiti Buffs. They rock! This design is not available through the Buff wear company or any local shop. You can only obtain them from LT if she is still selling them. The link in Peregrina2000s post will take you to the earlier subject forum post.

They are attention getters and conversation starters wherever you go. Other pilgrims recognize it right way and always ask me where I got it.

Thanks @t2andreo for your endorsement! A Canadian Camino group made a large order and I purchased a bunch to have on hand. Just sent one out to another Forum member today.

Yup, the design, immediately above is the original LTFit design fro several years ago. I just checked my personal copy. Ok, maybe they are NOT so unique anymore. But, they are only available here.

The design is original, and is based on a photograph of the now infamous graffiti on the Camino Frances. The name of the underpass where it appears escapes me, but I can still see it in my mind's eye from my two trips...:rolleyes:

Great job Lee!

Also, there are perhaps 10-12 Camino specific designs now available. Until recently, they were only available when in Spain, and possibly Portugal. However, I discovered that the international Buff Wear site offers SOME of these these designs online:

http://www.buffwear.com/new-ss18-adult-headwear/ss18-camino-santiago-collection

Ivar offers many of these designs in the Casa Ivar shop, including designs not available from Buffwear.com The prices are the same and Ivar ships worldwide.

Hope this helps.

Interesting thing is that I had been ordering the Camino de Santiago Graffiti special design Buff for Forum members and Friends of the Camino groups for about 3 years when Buff decided to bring out their own versions. I can't help but wonder if they got the idea from me as I had ordered 100's over the years.
Maybe just a coincidence :)
