Help! What are the refugios-etc in Estella & those from there about 20 km-day to Burgos????? Ayudame, amigos, por favor!!

ps. Jacotrans is a great service---picks up & drops off your bag for 7 Euro. Great to use in bad weather & if going uphill all day long.

You'll walk down a slight road slope into town. There's a bridge on your right, a church on your left. Stay on that road and there's a refuge on the left handside... That's the original one, I think.

(basically, in a more consise description, stay on the road you come into town on, go past the church with the big doors, it's on that street on the left... and they've hopefully learnt that playing Enya ain't cool!)

dg, suggestion: get a guidebook at the nearest available place. Also, they may have sheets with that/more info in albergues & tourist offices. Animo! xm 8)

not a bad idea. The Spanish El Pais book is excellent. Don't follow their etapes, though... Some are a bit long.

I too like El Pais/Aguilar's guidebook, Minkey. It's not perfect, I don't think there's one, but I feel comfortable with it. I get a new one every time I walk, they're updated often. I don't usually follow their etapas; a lot of times I stay at a small town before or after their suggested overnight stay. I think in the end one should get a guidebook that "works" best for them, planning walks the day before based on info from the guidebook, yes, and any other available source. 6:30 am here,zzzzzz, let's have a good day :) Best, xm 8)

true, true, but the distances are always handy... and the little (out of proportion) profiles. There's a German book on "Jakobsweg" that my buddy has, but he was so obssessed with it, I can only hope he burnt the damn thing at Finisterre!!!

Re: Etapas, yeah... Best ignored. Some are good, some are outlandish... Portomarin to Melide being one of em. Totally unnecessary

...the little (out of proportion) profiles
:lol: Hey, they gotta make their $ somehow/somewhere! Seriously though, I do like their descriptions of places we go through, towns, cities, etc., they give me ideas of what's around, what I may be interested in seeing, what not. This time around am getting Anton Pombo's Spanish language guide, the man himself recommended it particularly bec it icludes the Oloron-St-Marie - Summus Portus portion, my first etapa this time around. Am leaving for Madrid in some 23 "sleep days," Sil just told me! I find those words funny, "sleep days," & nice! r they Brit terms? Am picking up so many British phrases here that I suspect the time may come when no one here in the Florida swamps will be able to understand me, not that they do now... Best, xm 8)
