Wally the Arrow will show you the way
Hi! Well I’ll be arrowed! A pilgrim! No, don’t give me that look, I know a pilgrim when I see one! Let me introduce myself…
Nice to meet you! My name is Wally the Arrow, although most Spanish folks just call me ‘La Flecha’, which means ‘The Arrow’ in Spanish.
All this planning stuff is good, but without meaning to sound arrogant: an arrow is all you need to get to Santiago.
So, not sure yet, are you? Well, let me tell you that the hosts of Camino Comfort had the same thoughts before doing their first Camino. It’s normal, don’t worry too much about it!
Let’s take it step by step, just like you do with walking…
Take a look at the stuff on this page and take your pick. Some pilgrims worry about their pack weight, some about the marks on The Way (my fellow arrow-army will always be there for you, pilgrim’s honor!), and there are some pilgrims that just start off and don’t worry too much – but wished they had a couple of days or weeks after starting.
I’ll give you some advice here: worry a little, but just enough to cover the bases. Creativity & Fate need room in your planning to create your own little miracle. Don’t take that away, you are worth it!
- Take the information from Camino Comfort, it’s free!
- We are preparing a shop so pilgrims can get their hands on a set of things to carry on the camino that will make the trip a lot easier and as comfy as possible.
- At Camino Comfort, we are not into blind selling stuff to simply make a lot of money. That is not the reason why we started this adventure! We are there to make a pilgrim’s life easier so they can focus on their main purpose; walk, disconnect, find answers to life’s questions, and return safely home with an amazing story to tell your family and friends. So, no expansive ‘trendy’ stuff. Only products that are value-adding to your experience, and all tested by Camino Comfort on real Camino trails!
Now, let’s start walking around here! Here are some direct links to get you started!
This section provides a good overview of most of the routes that will lead you to Santiago de Compostela. It contains important links, maps, and descriptions per route.
This section will provide you with a start-off based on your needs and budget. Ranging from everything that might need to go into your backpack, reading food and real food: an information oasis to start preparing your life experience!
Who are we?
Get to know us better on Our Team page and on social media. We started off just like you and decided to make the camino an important part of our lives. Meet us, feel comfortable and enjoy our web page: you are the best!You are currently reading our first blog post on Camino Comfort. Feel free to browse around the blog posts or search for a certain topic using the search field (available on every page). We’ll be blogging about all sorts of tips/trick, news of the Camino, but also about our own passion and experiences along the Way.
Our little shop is our way of making it financially possible to gather all the information you need in one place. It takes a lot of effort to compile these pages, but even more to keep them up to date and to stay innovative enough to be able to provide you the service you need. It is nowadays quite easy to set-up a web shop. Most of the shops you find on the internet will have a lot of product choices with the goal to reach a huge buyer’s public. We chose to keep it small. We have personal experience with the offered products and our aim is to provide you with a one-stop place where you can get all the stuff you need to have in your backpack. Instead of visiting and ordering from multiple places, we would like to give you the experience of having everything you need at hand.
Frequently Asked Questions
On our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page, you will find a whole bunch of questions that we gathered and sorted for you into searchable topics. Get your knowledge from thousands of pilgrims who walked The Way before you!
