Pre-Camino day in Bilbao

Time of past OR future Camino
2023: a bit of CF, then San Salvador & Primitivo
I will start walking tomorrow from Logroño but I flew into Bilbao yesterday where I saw plenty of symbols of Santiago, traditional music buskers, and my sidra came with a good message.

Buen Camino. I really enjoyed starting the Camino Frances from Logrono. The bus ride from Bilbao was nice too, seeing the countryside as we went. I'm glad that Bilbao welcomed you. Rioja is a beautiful landscape to walk through and get you into the Pilgrim experience. I couldn't find a sello in a church, to start my Credential, but the Logrono Tourist Office had a nice one and they were nice people working there.

Thanks! I arrived in Logroño about an hour ago. I was hoping to get my first sello at the cathedral. If no luck there, I’ll go to the tourist office
 
The 2024 Camino guides will be coming out little by little. Here is a collection of the ones that are out so far.
I arrived at Logrono cathedral a few years ago with a very experienced and self confident Brazilian pilgrim who had walked from Rome. He ushered me with him to the Cathedral Dean or Cannon's office where a somewhat grumpy secretary reluctantly rummaged for a stamp in her desk, and imprinted both our credentials. It was one of the more beautiful stamps!
