Here comes my photo-video, from our walk late October from Almeria to Granada. It was an excellent Camino in many ways, and the friends in Almeria are excellent too! If anybody has questions about new things connected to this Camino, maybe I can answer.

I am not a person who is prone to making effusive statements and showing a lot of excitement. However....

This video is absolutely excellent! :D:D And I am suddenly really excited/animated about going in April! I am going to bookmark this and I look forward to the continuation.

Thank you. Watched it in full, on a miserable Sunday afternoon in Dublin! Cheered me up

3 questions?

  1. Was the route generally well marked?
  2. How many days did you walk?
  3. If you used a Guidebook, which one?

Thank again Donal

The route was very well marked. You have some alternatives on some places, but no problems finding our way.
We walked nine days. You can do it in less days, but we try to avoid days with very much more than 30 km, and then you must split up in som short distances from time to time.
No guide book. We used the excellent material from the assosiation in Almeria, which you find here: http://www.almeriajacobea.es/

Thank you to you all! It is nice to hear that you like my video. Since I have been so positive, maybe I should mention one thing that might be frustrating for someone: There are quite many distances of walking in more or less stony, dry riverbeds the first days. Especially the day we ended up in Abla, if I remember right. We didn´t bother. We are used to walking in Norwegian mountains. :)

Been there, done that. Keep coming back.
Most likely addicted.

Doing Camino Mozárabe -> Via de la plata -> Camino Sanabrés is definitely on my to-do list for a very slow walk, with stops for just about everything interesting - especially Alhambra. Most likely spread across several one or two week segments.

Den der ager med stude, kommer også frem

if you want to see Alhambra, and you prefer not to join a queue at a very early hour, you should reserve tickets many weeks (months) in advance. This makes it a bit tricky for pilgrims who are not sure of their exact date of arrival.
As a data point - In early October I joined the queue to buy tickets on the day at about 6:45AM but this was too late. (Fortunately, two Dutch pilgrims recognised me from the Camino. They were about 30 minutes earlier than me and they were able to get me a ticket to see everything except the Nasrid Palaces - tickets for Nasrid were gone by the time they got to the booth). The gentleman behind me in the queue had failed on two consecutive days to get tickets. He spent five or six hours standing in a queue with no reward for his effort ... most upsetting.

A good thing walking in late October, is that you don't have to start that early to get that sort of morning light.:)
