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...

Have you experienced any such problems?

Taa muchly - have emailed them for advice.

Am starting to wonder if it is the SD Card SCanDisk 64GB Ultra - that is the problem. I have emptied all images off it, reformatted it and checked with windows disk checker and still have the problem.

In the back of my mind I think I have been told that the RX100 will accept SD cards from 4GB up to 32GB and also the higher capacity SDXC cards from 48GB up to 256GB if you want to use video, as these cards generally have faster transfer speeds. I only use the 32GB SD memory cards as standard. Hopefully Sony or local camera shop will help confirm which cards are best.
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?
Hi AnnaWalks123,

I wanted to respond to your political post request, but the mods already shut it down.

What I did last time anyone brought up US politics was to shrug, and just say, "We survived Bush and Obama, We'll survive Trump" and leave it at that.

Bien Camino to you and your mom.

Thank you! I am sad that thread could't even make it 12 hours... oh well. Appreciate the feedback!!
My brother and I will arrive in St Jean on August 26. Currently working on how to get from Madrid to St Jean . . .
Hello. I'm looking for lodging recommendations in St. Jean on April 17. I want something quiet and comfortable so I can recover from a long day of travel. Any recommendations?
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.
Hello JohnnieWalker!
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).
Bob from L.A. !

Hi John,
I climbed it in 2009. The glacier was almost non existent. Since then I have seen photos from other climbing friends who have summited and it is no where to be seen.
Hello Margaret! So glad to see you still here. Are you planning your next camino?
Warm regards from Ouroboros/Alice
Does the Pilgrim Hostel in Irun get full. I plan on walking Camino Del Norte in May.

Where will you be starting the Norte from? I will be in San Sebastián May 24th to 27th and plan to begin my journey on the 27th 2019
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.

It was full last June for me, The 14 beds are in the main building, an additional bunk room is next door (converted garage I think). They were both full. Other places on guide worked for me. Buen Camino
Looking forward to your May release for Norte routes!

Andralynn, the book is on track for its scheduled May 15 release from Cicerone. I think that is going to be too tight for you, I'm afraid. It takes somewhere around 10 working days for it to be shipped to North America from Cicerone and Amazon US won't be stocked for a few months still.
Dave
Dave
Probably the only way it could work at all would be to order it shipped to a hotel in Spain where you might be staying on your first couple of nights, but there's definitely some risk of the timing not working out. It will be distributed to Spanish bookstores as well, but there's no way to know what that turn-around will look like.
Dave
Dave
The ebook version is being prepared as well and is due sometime by the end of May, so maybe that will be a possibility? It'll be available direct from Cicerone, from the same link above.

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--

Greetings, we are doing Pomplona to Burgos but are planning to find a bus or taxi when we get tired. We do fine for 12-14 miles or so. Are taxis or buses hard to catch?

thanks for saying Hello and enquiring.
The short version is: I moved to Europe! Left California summer 2017.
Still in transition period. it's HUGE. and yet i am so grateful i left. And at the same time: missing my dear friends and colleagues and the spirit of the amazing land (not the culture, but the LAND) that is the US.
how about yourself?
best wishes - C

WOW, so exciting!
Well, still above ground (yay!) most happily. I went to Spain with a group of people last year and fell in love with Asturias! So much so that I'm going back with my guy for 6 weeks in August/September, to look for property! We both retire this year.
Happy you replied! T
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.
Bon Camino
Hello Sillydoll, I would like to purchase the Swiss Camino ( Rorshach to Geneva) guide book but don't see it in your store. It's advertised as costing 15.90. Where could I find it?
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.
Hello Ivar Can you drop my last name Holst from my profile as it was a mistake on my part and only show as Howard.

Hello Caminka
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.
Thank you

Via de la Plata for an encore performance - starting on 5 April. Stopping in Italica this time... And veering off to Trujillo. Maybe Torres from Salamanca to Verin.
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.

When in May will you be walking? I plan to start on the Norte from San Sebastián to Bilbao and then drop down to the Francis for the remainder of my Camino. May 27th leave SS
The Way is calling. All the time.

Hi Gerald , Hope all is going well . I arrive to Seville 17 April if you are still around . Cheers Gary
Starting tomorrow from Lisbon. Looking for a walking companion from 26/04/19, continuing from Vigo, as my brother leaves me there.

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

Not sure if you've already found the info in some of the post, but if you haven't, simplest way would be to catch the train to Pamplona from Barcelona, then a bus or taxi to SJPP.

I’m walking from porto to baiona via the coastal path from april 29th 2019 and was wondering on average if there are large or small numbers walking this route at that time of year.
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

Which route are you planning, Coastalor interior?
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,
Hi Ivar
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)?
thanks
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.
Currently in planning mode to hike Camino del Norte starting mid-April...

andralynn
Please let me know what your experience on the Norte was, level of difficulty, accommodations etc. I will be walking it starting in San Sebastián May 27,2019. Thank you for any tips😊
Just wanted to say thanks for liking one of my photos. It is great to have photos to reignite the Camino spirit and memories, but even nicer when others appreciate them also. Buen Camino
