Hi Camino Nomads - Ok, here is my question: As I will start the Vdlp in May - I am already starting to pack - what a nerd I am! - In any case, I am thinking about packing swimming gear - as I would ideally like to swim (as in do laps) where possible along the way - Has anyone had any experience with swimming pools along the way? Thanks for any advice.

I have a case made for RX100 but it does take a little time to open and turn the camera on...
Have been having some issues with my RX100 - not saving all pics taken... Initially thought that it may have been a consequence of shutting the camera off before fully saved, but deliberately delaying shutting the camera down has not solved the problem...
Very kind of you to start the Go fund me page for the pilgrim who lost their money, I'm sure you invested some time and effort doing it. Also, good thoughts about the precedent and potential for abuse. If it's done again in the future, maybe a requirement of a police report would be good before proceeding?
I'll be starting on the April 19th. Having trouble finding transportation from Zaragoza to St Jean on the 17th. I've tried several times to purchase train tickets to no avail. Hope to meet you along the way.
Hoping to walk the Camino Inglés in 6-7 days during the first week of September. I have a 4 year old guide of yours. Are you able to direct me to a current downloadable for accomodations & walking the most nature laden route?
Thank you, kindly!
Hi Bob. What year did you climb Kilimanjaro? Fairly recently? I notice from your photo the glacier seems to have completely receded. When I climbed Kili in 2006, the glacier was visible, but far out on the horizon. Just curious. John (up the coast from you in Washington).
I will be walking the Camino Del Norte and plan on doing 15 km from Irun to Pasajes. Are there any Pilgrim Hostels or other accommodation available. I hear the Pilgrim Hostel only has 14 beds and is usually full.
Hi Ivar-- My older son is meeting me in Burgos carrying two backpacks on the 11th. We will be arriving in Santiago either Good Friday or the Saturday before Easter, and flying out on Easter Sunday. (We're only walking till Leon this time.) Can we ship one of his packs to you? Are you open for us to pick it up that week-end? Do we just find a post office? Thanks--
Hi James Incase you on the walk. I remember reading about a Lady that started in Thuringia. She overnighted at churches or parishes. Maybe this helps you. Should you get stuck the next two weeks I will be more regularly at night on the forum. So if you need help contact me.
Hello...going to start walking the Primitivo on the 5th of April. My first Camino....any top tips would be appreciated. Got the feeling I’m quite early in the season. Hoping I will see some fellow walkers.
Have you walked the Via Postumia....
Looking for information on stages, accommodation , places of great experiences and places not be missed. I would like to compare this to the very useful information on the Via Postumia website.
Good day All!
What would you favorite Camino Frances guide app for iPhone7, and what is your favorite paper version?
Any suggestions for a good battery pack?
All answers will be much appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
I walked the Camino from SJPP September /October 2018. Am going back in May this year to Santiago, Finisterre and Muxia. One regret i have from my previous trip was not keeping in contact with a few people I met. Its really common to meet people quite a few times but then suddenly they are gone and you will never see them again. I met a Dutch girl who was such a lovely person and then gone. Buen Camino to all.
Hi Kanga, you mentioned being blind in 1 eye & no depth perception. I too am blind in 1 eye. Born that way & don't know what DP is like. It hasn't been a problem; I must have learned work-arounds early on. Did you lose vision later in life & know what you are missing? Tho I don't think about DP, I wouldn't hike w/o poles on uneven ground. Your post makes me wonder if poles are a work-around I've unconsciously used!
Hi I’m starting to plan my Camino journey from Downunder NZ starting from SJPDP early May. Any advice on travelling from Barcelona to Saint Jean-Pied-de-Port? It seems to be quite complicated. Thanks if anyone can enlighten me. Christina
Hi: My friend and I are walking the Camino from Porto to Santiago. We figure about 10 miles or a few more per day (we are old) and a couple of rest days will bring our walking days to 17. Can you tell me where you booked a room (that you liked)? I also will use bookings.com which I used on the CF with great success! Thank you, Sue
Hi Everyone. Thanks for the valuable information I feel very comfortable with my preparation thanks to all of you. I start May 15 from SJPdP after spending a few days in Ireland having left Boston on the 9th. Two questions, is there a need to treat water CF? Second, I have read comments about 'not putting your bag on the floor' in albergues how should I handle my backpack in the albergues? Thanks,
So I started a thread today asking how to get to SJPdP from Philadelphia. Of course I missed the existing thread (Getting to SJPDP from the US) that was started by patticake5 about a month ago.
Perhaps you can combine them (i.e. incorporate mine into hers)?
El Gonzo, CF
On Saturday, 16th of March, we went through El Ganzo on CF thinking we would stop for water at Albergue Gambino (at the end of the village) which has been open before in March.
It was closed for repairs and opening again in April. But just wanted others to know so plan accordingly if coming through the area soon.
Planning to walk Via de la Plata in October 2019. Any tips are more than welcome. I walked last year the last 100 km of Camino Frances. I enjoyed that so much that I want to enjoy the real Camino experience.
