I really enjoyed Gareth's interview ............I will be back....... Starting in Madrid and walking Salvador after 2 days on the Camino Frances to Leon ...... And then walking Primitivo from Oviedo I did this last year in Autumn but want the spring-time experience ...... sadly I had to cancel last May.......... 2021 ..... Thanks, Gareth for the great interview.
Sorry Joan I walked in August 2013, it is truly sad that your brother Agnelo did not make it to Santiago.What a humble man Gareth is . Thank you Ivar for the interview. When ever I watch them I wish my brother had finished his camino. This year I am reliving his Camino in my journal to remember. Mic you did the Camino in 2013 by chance did you meet my brother. Agnelo Lobo.
He started on the 1st of September reached Triacastella on the 3 rd of October. It will be great to read your reflections Gareth after to have had the time to consolidate it in your mind. Lovely photos.
Which booking app were you using? We begin on 8 October 2020Great interview and totally echo everything said. I did the CP from Lisbon to SDP in July and that was very straight forward and great but not many pilgrims. The CF (26 July to 20 August) was very easy, no issues at all with accommodation or bars/restaurants. To be honest I only decided to do it at a few days notice and as long as you had the booking app you were good. Decent number of people too from Spain, Italy, Germany, France and UK mainly so got the buzz off that. Everyone I met was so welcoming! I booked ahead most days but most people did not and never had any problems. Seems a decent mix of albergue and private accommodation. Walking in the tranquility felt the perfect and safest place to be after being in the suburbs of a major city for a few months!! Finished it off walking to Muxia and Fisterra.
Obviously things are very much subject to change due Covid and as we approach winter!

I totally agree - I really dislike booking.com personally - and another thread recommended gronze.com so this will be our go to site. Many thanks for your replyMay I suggest that you try to phone the hostales and pensiones directly?
In these dire economical times I can imagine the small business owners suffer the most. They certainly can do without the middlemen of BookingDotcom and the likes. The percentage of the profit that they have to give up is appalling.
On a Camino I only use such a bookingsite for the first night when I arrive in a big city. Otherwise I call the places directly.
Gronze website is an excellent help.
