I'm in SJPP. Planning to start the Camino tomorrow or the next day. Seeking non snoring roommate to share lodging costs. Interested? OMG had no idea how bad this would be. I've mostly stayed in non co ed dorms and not too be sexist but fewer woman snore.

Eek! This is awful. If you want to split rooms for any leg of the journey let me know. Gracias. Merci.

On the Camino I have shared a room with another woman only twice. Each time the woman was very nice but a horrible snorer! You have my profound empathy!
Thank you. Five hours of this so far. I have ear plugs. A mask. S headband. Ear phones playing white noise and a towel D blanket wrapped around my head. Agh!

THAT did it! BWAAAAHAHAAAA! 🤣
@VeganCamino, please forgive my laughter! WHY is it funny to read about but, not at all funny to experience?! I confound myself! Have you tried full blown wax earplugs? As I understand from other's, they work well.

The auto-correct function is really funny sometimes. At Perth Airport, on the way to my last Camino, I was reading the blog of someone in Norfolk, UK, where she was having a delicious meal of bloaters. I responded "I have never eaten a bloater", but this came out as "I've never eaten a blister!" I then wrote: "There are no bloaters on the Camino, but there are plenty of blisters". My neighbours in the airport lounge couldn't see why I was laughing so much.

I use earplugs that you can buy in hardware or lumber stores. Mine cost about 50 cents. Twist them before you put them in. Twist in the opposite direction after they are in and it creates a good seal.
Works great. I can sleep through the loudest snores and I don’t hear a thing. It’s also a lot cheaper than those wax earplugs.

Currently on a "Virtual" Camino and striding out across Navarra!
I was hoping for a story about a distraught non-snoring pilgrim selling her snoring partner for immoral purposes . . .
Forgive me, I'm waiting for a repairman to come - he'll be here between 13:00 and 17:00hrs. Yeah, right!

Brilliant!!
The ideal place to find proper ‘ear protection’ plugs!
Muchas gracias 😊

Are you certain that you don't snore? I never really believed that I snored really badly - however, a couple of nights using the App - SnoreLab - both convinced me and made me realise that I am world class at least in this aspect! I use single rooms and when in dorm accom a mouth guard to protect others! Good luck in your quest.

If story was leaked to several newspapers aorund the world , I am sure it would come back of how snoring roommates was being sold off, like in the fairytale " It is quite True" by Hans Christian Andersen....

In my experience, those who complain the loudest about snoring are most often among the loudest snorers themselves.

What about simply accepting that it's as natural after a long hike than needing to get your boots off ?

And here I thought "bloaters" was the typo. Maybe it was and they were both typos!

I pictured the snoring police entering into the albergue looking for the snorer, as they lined up all pilgrims in front of their beds, the friend sells him out.
Are you sure they aren't the "Thought police"? (Only a few will know what I say.)

My mom used to nap on the sofa after dinner and snored extremely loud. Us kids watching tv hated it, so we would razz her about it. She denied she snored until I had the idea to tape her, so did the next night on a little cassette player. That embarassed her, but at least she stopped denying it. I was an imp, btw. ☺
