Camino de Santiago (sept 2017)
Hi All,

I left from Burgos last Sunday. One big take away so far if you are starting bring food with you. Most of the bars in the small towns are still closed. A couple have started to open. Some of the restaurants don't open late so best to have dinner at lunch time if you can.

Thanks,
Ciaran
 
The 2024 Camino guides will be coming out little by little. Here is a collection of the ones that are out so far.
Spanish like their dinners after nine and normally take a largish menu del dia around mid-day. I am surprised after one week out of Burgos you did not find bodegas open in towns like Fromista and Carrion. Reb Scott recently wrote that the place in Moratinos opened this week.

Same for us Roncesvalles to Pamplona. Basically nothing open and limited water as far as we could see.

In the spirit of 'Nations divided by a common language", I'll suggest that Spanish like their dinners in the early afternoon (often a menu del dia if they can't make it home for dinner) and a light supper after nine.

That's because I was taught that there is lunch and supper and dinner substitutes for whichever of them is larger. :)
 
The first edition came out in 2003 and has become the go-to-guide for many pilgrims over the years. It is shipping with a Pilgrim Passport (Credential) from the cathedral in Santiago de Compostela.
