Time of past OR future Camino
Last Camino Sep 23 Camino Portuguese (Central)
Just had a friend contact me reference getting a Credencial sent to him in the UK
Was going to signpost him to the Forum store, until I checked the shipping costs. . .
Minimum donation for item is €3 (fine)
Minimum shipping cost €13 ! ( not fine)
Seems excessive for something that fits in an envelope . . .
Signposted my friend to Confraternity of St James instead.
Buen Camino
Train for your next Camino (or keep the Camino spirit alive) on Santa Catalina Island
For just a credential you're right, it's better to obtain one from a local source, or when you arrive at your starting point.
The shipping costs are more worthwhile when you are ordering other merchandise, like a guide book - @ivar throws in a free credential with those.
The one from Galicia (the round) and the one from Castilla & Leon. Individually numbered and made by the same people that make the ones you see on your walk.
