Thank you Ivar -
This really provides a nice backup plan which I have been looking for. I will leave for Roncesvalles next week and plan to use the Brierley guide when possible. If the weather turns worse or something gets hurt I now have a good alternative. Hope to see you some time and buy you a beer (or glass of wine).
Best wishes on your new venture, Bill
I had a look at this as my 77 & 75 year-old parents are thinking of walking part of the camino.
Nice to see they are trying to give you a real camino experience - in between the paradores and hotels they suggest just two albergues - one of which is San Bol ! No toilets, no showers, but a great atmosphere !!
Just a shame they couldn't work it so you stay at Manjarin as well !
