I’m transfixed by the online Camino community! First I discovered the Camino Forum on Facebook. Everyday they post a question, (mostly about what to pack, how to train, how to get there, and how to take care of your feet) and people post suggestions and very detailed advice. People sincerely want to help and share their experience.
The American Pilgrims on the Camino site is also great. It’s a treasure trove of information about the Camino. I especially like this introduction to the History tab of the site:
“You are about to enter more than a thousand years of history and tradition associated with the Camino de Santiago. The Camino will become a multifaceted experience for you as you in turn become one with the daily flow of the life of the peregrino. ¡Buen Camino!”
The APOC Facebook page is another place where people are sharing their knowledge, and asking for the gathered wisdom of the pilgrim community.
I look forward to meeting my fellow pilgrims.
