On a page in Denmark, I have been able to see that the Albergues in Galicia are open, is this true? Are there anyone in this forum who knows if there are any pilgrims on the route in Galicia? Has anyone gone to Galicia during Covid19 who wants to tell me a little about the trip?
Just asking if you are flying from Stansted to Biarritz, I did in 2019 with RyanAir. It all worked well for me and then I got a shared taxi with Express Bourricot to get to SJPdP. If you are staying at Hampton by Hilton Hotel at Stansted don't rely on their wake-up call being on time - the breakfast is pretty bad as well. I am hoping to do another one next year. Good luck from Harrogate.
Hey, Johan, I still plan to go back, but who knows when the hell this will even be possible? Certainly not in 2021. Hopefully in the next few years. I cannot wait. But alas, I have to. Hope you are doing well.
I write to see if you might have any information about how I might contact the couple named Manuel Casado and Svetlana who used to run the Hostel Fuentestrella in Hontanas. I have a documentary film on the Camino coming out soon and I would like to include scenes of them at their pilgrim dinner in the film.
Trying to go back & finish my camino that I started back in 2012 My dad passed away while on the Camino It’s was the day of the transit strike
I’ve been trying to find out if the Camino is locked down or if I can go & walk My planned dates are end of May through end of July I have been vaccinated If anyone can point me in the right direction as to getting info I would appreciate it
Hi Nick, I see you completed the Portuguese Camino 2020. We are walking Porto to Santiago in Sept
Did you have any difficulty finding the Camino route through towns and villages? I check out a few of the places we travel through on Google Street View before we go. Sometimes find route aren't clear - Santo Antonio / Rates is such a place.
How did you find the route? Clear as the French way?
My ancestry is Danish, migrated to USA in 1623. I am new here ... less than a week ... and live near Seattle, WA, USA. Anticipating a trek in spring 2022. Welcome aboard! My name is Drew. Buen Camino !
My name is Drew. Thanks for the like. I am new here ... less than a week so mistakes are inevitable. I apologize in advance. You are evidently a prime source of solid information. I'm aiming for my first venture Spring of 2022 & in earliest planning stage at every level. Anything you can suggest for Lisbon to SDC is appreciated. Thanks ...
We are making plans (for post covid if there is such a thing) to walk part of the Via Francigena, from Besancon, France to Ivrea, Italy. Did you find accommodations to be far and few between? Now that it has been some years since you walked over the St. Bernard Pass, do you have fond memories of this walk?
Do you think the Camino Costa Rica is doable by someone with a severe sight impairment?
I only see a little in the centre of one eye the other eye nothing also i see nothing in poor light,dusk or at night with no depth perception!
Did you have to climb over rocks or boulders or was the path a reasonable path to follow even at altitude?
I do realise your answer is just an opinion. thanks
Hei Ivar. Eg tillit meg å skrive på norsk, ikkje alltid like lett å forklare på engelsk.. eg er tulle frå forumet, og til vanleg er eg pålogga heile tida. Men no må eg logge inn sjøl om eg er inne fleire gonger for dag. Eg kryssar av i Stay inlogged, men det hjelper ikkje. Må det vere slik? Elles tusen takk for eit flott forum!
Kiernan, you recently translated your book into English and sent me a notice. I ordered it, and it is delightful and unique. Your illustrations remind me of Quentin Blake, and I enjoy your sense of humor. I hope your next camino meets your anticipations. I had planned to return to Cahors, France in 2020 to complete the Le Puy route, and when times are better that shall be the next episode of my camino journeying.
Listened to your YouTube vlogs and thought you were just an amazing crazy,funny lady so bursting with life and the love of it !!!!
Love your spirit!
People won't ask have you ever seen the rain!
But have you ever seen the dancing Dhooma
I hope i will make the best of my second chance and embrace it like you!
Happy trails Woody.
Hi there, I am female, 65, fit but not too sporty anymore (= the lockdown brought my fitness down and my weight up) currently living in Zurich, want to walk the Camino - but not on my own. Would like to include the 'walk of bonnes homes" in southern france / crossing to Spain. Reason I want to do the Camino: on my bucket list + I want to loose 12 kg
Hi Elie, I have been browsing the information on your Camino Teresiano. Just let me tell you that you did an excellent job. Amazing amount of information. In my view, impossible to gather by just being a typical pilgrim.
I can tell, since I live in Salamanca and I am familiar with the area. It so happen I'm also a little familiar with Colorado (not Weston). Small world!!
Hello Stephan, I prepared some notes on the Sud which I would be happy to share. I walked in 2018. I have walked at this stage from Canterbury and to Thessaloniki and whenever things calm down I plan to continue through Turkey and to Jerusalem.
Recently retired, overweight and planning the Camino del Norte next year (COVID permitting) Hopefully, weight will be more acceptable and getting the kilometers under the belt.
Is this a “good” decision or should I opt for the Frances for my first venture?
I just read your post regarding walking the VF. My wife and I are planning the same route in 2021, obviously all dependent on C19. We are currently in the planning stages, taking up much of our "Lockdown" time. Have you begun to do any planning on this trip? If so, I would be willing to email you the 8 pages we have so far if you are willing to email me yours.
Hi Ivar; I'm planning to walk any of the last 100 km (time constraints) starting Christmas and reaching New Year's Eve Santiago. I would be happy to hear some advice on feasibility and hotels and options for participating in events. I live in Spain(Barcelona) and have travelled the Camino Frances by bike and foot last year. Thanks, Simon
