Bravo for Orrison!
Hope you have reserved Roncesvalles, Zubiri and Larrasoana aswell.
They tend to be full.

Camino Frances, Camino Portuguese. Future: Via de La Plata 2019.
I walked the Camino Frances back in 2015 and it was an unforgettable time for me. I am going again spur of the moment decision...I think during this time period. I am surprised by how crowded things have become since 2015. I guess I need to make reservations for Belari & Orrison. Does anyone have a link to them?

RONCESVALLES: Albergue de Roncesvalles
ZUBIRI: Albergue Zaldico
LARRASOAÑA: Albergue San Nicolas

Municipal albergues in Zubiri and Larrasoaña seem to be
under remont/renovation and closed. I had to take a taxi from
Zubiri to Pamplona.

At home look for Gronze.com
For the Camino itself, an offline guide for phone, like

Camino Frances (2015 & 2017) and plans for 2019 (Sept, Oct)
My wife and I walked CF in 2015 and 2017. In 2017 in Zubiri we stayed at Hostel Rio Arga. It was terrific. It overlooks the bridge into Zubiri. We had a private room for two with private bathroom across the hallway for 40 euros and this included breakfast.

We begin our third camino frances walking on Sept 20.

Hi, I will be starting my Camino on the 26th as well. I am arriving on the 24th and will spend the 25th relaxing before I head out. I am going to Roncesvalles on the 26th and have my reservation there. Hope to see you all (Craig and Dorpie) in St. Jean! Just two weeks away!

All the best,

Buen Camino,
