    This may be a really random question but does the Camino in France have the same culture of stamps as the Camino Frances? I read they are called tampons rather than sellos but I wonder if the albergues have a similar thing of individually designed logos.

    The other question is about hostels with kitchens. When I walked the CF in 2016 the pilgrim office in SJPP gave me a listing which showed me if there was a kitchen that I could use to cook my own food. My current guide book doesn't give me much information on that at all :(.

    I can only be of very limited “Help” on this thread as I have only walked a few days in France on The Camino Frances and The Camino Aragones

    But from what I saw, getting a daily Sello wasn’t a problem.

    The only other input I have is that on The Camino Aragones, we walked for a few days with a young German Guy who had started his Camino in Le Puy and he told us that there were (At that time) very few Albergue’s and that he had written to priests along the route and they provided him with free accommodation and in many cases food too.

    Good Luck and Buen Camino
