And with B over, we are on to the 3rd chapter…. There are loads of towns beginning with C, it must be a Spanish thing! I have only stayed in two of […]
Hi folks. If you are planning your Camino, the information you receive from people who have walked the Camino previously can be more valuable than the information you find in guide books. […]
This second installment of the “Towns Along the Way” series brings us to “B”. There are a wealth of towns starting with “B” so I might as well start by talking about […]
While I am mid-Camino Portugués, I just want to switch back to the Camino Francés for the purpose of this series. This was the first Camino I walked and I’m sure it […]
