        I'm just north of you in the Adirondacks. If you're already walking the hills, you'll be in great shape! Buen Camino!

      Hi Leslie.
      I live in Velez Rubio, Almeria, Spain and my friend, who lives in Glasgow, Scotland is going to come with me.We are thinking April/May 2017 and maybe not do the whole Camino at the one time, maybe do it in sections. I plan to meet her either in Madrid or Barcelona and then take a train to Pamplona and then a bus to St Pied.
      Feesable , I think. Kind regards and thank you for accepting me on the forum

      Leslie, I get confused by the forum at times. I'm not even sure if the last long message came from you or from Louis. I have answered it and, if it came from you, you will have seen my answer. Who would be a forum administrator!!
      1. Leslie
        Leslie
        Yes, the problem with the last one is that it was addressed to several people when Louis sent it. I did not notice that until I had replied, so my reply went to all that the first message went to.

        I also miss some things on the software.

        In general being an admin is okay, this forum is fairly quiet and usually runs okay for most people. It is just a couple of times a year something blows up.

      Hi Leslie, just finished reading a book you recommended , The Way, My Way by Bill Bennett
      A great book , Thanks !
      I have given it 5 star rating

        I am glad you liked it. I have read many Camino books, but only write reviews of the ones I like... I have a few more at this moment in my iPad which I will get to during the next month or so.

      Leslie, I am looking for someone to walk the Camino with in the very near future, and I was wondering what the safest way to go about that would be?
      1. Leslie
        Leslie
        It depends on what time of the year you are going, bit I would suggest just starting on your own and you will meet people very quickly.

      Hi Leslie,
      Just inquiring if we can send a small parcel with clothing from Pamplona to Santiago, that we can pick up when we get to Santiago. We will be doing the Camino Frances.. Any info will be greatly appreciated

      Leslie, i think it will be fine to add "sticky" notes to Camino frances section - about travelling to SJPP. There are many people that don't know about airport in Biarritz. So i think any sum of possibilities. Thanks for your work!
      1. Leslie
        Leslie
        Yes, that is a good idea. I thought there was one, I will have a look and if not I will start one. Thanks

      This is Seamus mor. I have just joined today, 8 Oct. -2014. Last May, I walked with a group of 13 pilgrims plus guide. We were ALL very congenial pilgrims with not one complainer in the group and not even a hint of negativity! We started in Sarria and arrived in Santiago de C. Seven days later. Our young guide, Pilar, was top notch
      very pleasant, well informed, hence very knowledgeable and conscientious and highly intelligent. She will go far(no pun intended.). :-). :-)
      More later.... :-). Buon Camino!

      Hey Leslie,

      Love the new look and interface.
      On my wish list is to incorporate the option for us to edit our own messages and threads as we choose whenever we choose. This is an option I find in every other forum and find I sorely miss here. :)

      Hi Leslie, I agree with mollyo that this is really the best site for info on the Camino!
      I only joined 2 days ago, but are already addicted to reading about all the Walks.
      We plan on doing the Scotland and Ireland ones next year when visiting our son in the UK.
      Been to Scotland twice , would love to do Ireland.
      Thanks again for all the info.

      I am planning on doing El Camino and would like to ask if its ok to wear tennis shoes. I am a runner and have very good shoes which are comfortable.
      Can anyone tell me if I can wear tennis shoes instead of boots?
      Thanks

      Hi Leslie, not sure if you received my earlier message. I have recently completed a cookbook on the wonderful food we enjoyed along the Way. Many pilgrims we walked with were inerested in getting a copy. I would like to post this info in forum and newsletter. Would this be ok? See Camino Cocina for more info on book. Thanks Paul Battjes

      Hi,

      If you are reading this you are having a look at my profile. There is not much to read about me here, though I do post links to my own blog - where there is more.

      I hope you like the forum and find the information that you are looking for. I started the forum because I was getting so many questions emailed to me and did not have time to answer. This now acts a great repository for many questions and answers for thousands of people every month.

      All the best
      Leslie

      Hi Leslie:
      Could you look at the private post I received on March 18th under this thread?
      It just looks odd. Could you delete this from my record so it is just not associated with me in any way? Forgive me if that is something I can do, I am just not familiar with how to do it.
      Thank-you,
      Louise

      Hey Leslie
      Just checked out the Walk Ireland site. Nice job! That's where I'm headed next after the camino. I'll be asking a ton of questions in the future but for now enjoyed wandering around your info. Thanks as always for your work on here. Jenny

    I am the one that runs this site, looks after the code and updates stuff.

    I first walked the Camino Frances in 2004. I found it hard going in the earlier stages - I wasn't as fit as I am now, and I was carrying a backpack that was about 13kg - far too much.

    For some reason that I hadn't figured out at the time I went back and walk again in 2005. During this walk I met my other half.

    Then in 2006 I started building a website from scratch by learning HTML, CSS, etc. What better topic than the Camino. This site and my blog evolved from that point.

    I am Scottish, from Glasgow, ran away from home in 1997 to Dublin, and moved to Prague in 2013. There have been a few other long stays elsewhere, I look back and appreciate how fortunate my has been so far.

    I published my guidebook on the Camino France during April 2015. You can see it here on Amazon US - http://www.amazon.com/Camino-Santiago-Frances-2015-ebook/dp/B00WGFUF0M/

    And Amazon UK - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Camino-Santiago-Frances-2015-ebook/dp/B00WGFUF0M/

    It is available on Amazon worldwide.
