      Spain has tea. You can rest assured that every café and restaurant will have atleast black tea, chamomile, mint tea, mostly green tea. Other tea’s and infusion are less common. If you want black tea with milk ask for “te negro con leche a...

      AJS49 reacted to Tickbush's post in the thread Long sleeve sun safe top with Like Like.
      I wear fishing-style shirts, because there’s a collar to keep the sun off my neck. But, here’s my 2-cents worth on UV clothing: I worked outdoors for most of my life, before the advent of UV clothing. I never once got a sunburn through my...

      This. Even when I walked for about 15 weeks I didn't care about those same outfits all the time. I also quite enjoyed it that I never had to think about what to wear.

      AJS49 reacted to C clearly's post in the thread Backpack Replacement Recos? with Like Like.
      I use an Osprey Talon 33, which I am very happy with. It weighs about 990 g plus 100 g for a rain cover. However, it would be a mistake to save a few hundred grams but sacrifice any small degree of comfort.

      AJS49 reacted to peregrina2000's post in the thread Chinese shops??? with Like Like.
      They do have almost everything, and I’ve gotten things like cheap sunglasses, pillow cases, bubble wrap, bandanas, etc etc. One thing I would never get there is anything having to do with charging equipment for a phone. I have been told by...

      Well you nailed it, "it depends", on your foot, the anticipated weather, your experience etc. However since you are focused on your ankles let me add one more thing. I've noticed some people wear a style of sock that ends just below the ankle...
