Chinchas in Monjardin

The 2024 Camino guides will be coming out little by little. Here is a collection of the ones that are out so far.
I had a fully blood-bloated bedbug land on my hand (having presumably drunk its fill from occupant of upper bunk and then toppled off) at 2 am in the albergue in Reliegos. Yuk :shock:
Down bag (90/10 duvet) of 700 fills with 180 g (6.34 ounces) of filling. Mummy-shaped structure, ideal when you are looking for lightness with great heating performance.


it must be 'Villamayor de Monjardin' - between Estella and Los Arcos - a nice (but basic) albergue on the top of a hill.
Last may, a young Spanish, David, was hospitalero - very helpful and regarding.
Good souvenirs...

Pilgrim's greetings from Brussels,

Sorry - I was too quick ... and did not read the thread 'properly'... of course you know Monjardin (better than me I might say ;) - bueno...)

Hi Annie,
You don't say which of the albergues you found the chinches in - was it the one by the bar, run by the Dutch protestants, or the one on the right as you enter the village ? The Dutch have special mattress covers that are meant to prevent bedbugs.
By the way- thanks so much for your advice on how to flush them out - we used it all the time and it works !
