SIM Cards for your Camino

Rob The Traveller

I’ve had a few questions related to SIM cards. So this was my experience based on walking the Camino Frances in 2015 (From St Jean). I pre purchased SIM cards for France and Spain. I didn’t want to wait until hitting the first major town before being able to get a SIM card.

What, another Camino?

What, another Camino?

I finished my Camino de Santiago about 7 weeks ago. And when I finished, I said that it would be a one-off, never to be repeated event. Mainly because it was so special, everything that I wished for, and so any other repeat performance could only be a poor comparison.

That will mean staying in shared accommodation, eating cheap meals, picnic lunches, maybe doing some cooking yourself and so on.

24th of June – Camino Revelations

Rob The Traveller

OK, I said that I would share my Camino Revelations when I got to Santiago. I’m a bit late! But I’ve still been processing some things…. In a separate post later, I may share some of the more ‘Spiritual’ elements of my Camino. Not quite ‘burning bushes’ but it was close a few times! For now, I’ll talk about that whole issue of answers and questions. Early in my Camino I was searching for answers.
