I’ve just done a stage of the Camino Frances, and I finished in Logroño just a few days ago. In my rush to get to the bus in order to catch my plane on time, I forgot my boots at the albergue municipal!
I was wondering if anyone would be passing by Logroño soonish, and would be willing to mail me my boots back?
I haven’t had that much luck trying to communicate with the albergue, I managed to get a hold of them right after I left Logroño, but I haven’t been able to get ahold of them since, that’s why I’m trying this forum :)
I will of course pay anything up front, and I have a picture that really closely resembles my boots.
I really hope someone can help!

I knew someone who left their boots. They used the transport service (Jaco?) to transport them. The albergue tagged the boots, they were picked up and delivered. Easy peasy. Hope you experience the same.

All I can think of right now is the name of the person who organises all the hospitaleros, and the office is in Logroño...perhaps if you send her an email, she might be able to track your boots, and even post them on to you. This is just me, thinking aloud. Here is her email address, and you can decide if you want to try that. To the best of my knowledge she speaks English. She certainly understands written English. Sorry for your trouble, and I hope it works out for you.

And her name is Anai

If in doubt, compose a message in Spanish using an online translator like Microsoft Translate or Google Translate. Be sure to include the English source language below the Spanish text.

Don't forget to offer to pay for shipping, via PayPal, or direct electronic transfer, if you have this capability. Finally, depending on where 'home' is, shipping the boots may cost more than replacing them... just sayin...

Hope this helps.

A few times
Several years ago while on the Frances I met a married couple on the Frances and we walked together for a few days and they were to stop their Camino in Burgos and take the train home from there. We stayed at the big municipal albergue there. We exchanged contact information. I stayed an extra day in Burgos and on the afternoon they left they sent me a message that the wife had left her Merrell shoes at the albergue and if I could would I go there and retrieve them and if possible mail them to them. I was staying at a private albergue the second night so I walked to the big municipal in hopes of locating the shoes. I spoke to the hospitalero and told him of the situation and that they were Merrell women's shoes and I had the size and color. I believe they had blue or pink trim on them, so I figured they would be easy to locate. They were not and they were gone. The hospitalero was not surprised. I guess I was not either. I do remember feeling a bit odd poking about so many sets of smelly footwear in those slide out rack things they have there and inspecting individual sets of women's shoes to look at the size and make etc. That was weird for me.
I am only recounting this story not to get the OP discouraged but to perhaps relay the reality of the situation, and that being that the shoes are in all likelihood gone. Still, I wish the best of luck nonetheless.
