Although I have bought a “buff” in the past, I tend to call them snood’s.
I was told years ago that it was a combination of the words scarf, neck, and hood.
I do however agree the word buff is a branded name for this product,
but I also agree that it’s been in the English language for that...
Confirmed my flights, the bike is pretty much ready, bustill looking for fellow pilgrim to join me at any stage of the route, will be leaving Pamplona on or about the the 15th of June (2018), hoping to get to Leon by the 21st of June at the latest,and on to Santiago by the 27th of June.
Thank you for the account of your trip, it’s a great read and very informative..
Interested to know if you ate out or cooked for yourselves along the way?
I’ve been talking with other pilgrims about there experiences with using the kitchens at the hostels
What’s your thoughts???
If this is the norm of people disregarding what’s requested of them, then I would hazard a guess that this is why there is no equipment in these kitchens.
As for the colour coding on the cutting boards (sometimes knives too) this was brought in to kitchen in the early ‘90’s by European food...
I do understand that I don’t have to announce anything that I don’t want to, and maybe it’s just an Irish (cultural) thing, but usually within 5 min of sitting down with someone you’ve not met before, it’s usually follows in the order of Name, where you’re from and what you do for a living.
I honestly didn’t think about the difference if I’m cycling, I will be using a mixture of route and road and taking my time as much as I possibly can, no need to rush.
Ive already planned or taken in to consideration places that don’t take cyclists, I got an app for my phone...
I was thinking about that, and briefly thought about bringing a couple of my own ..... but then thought better as it I could possibly and potentially be painting a target on my back.
HEY LOOK AT ME AND MY KNIVES, I’m a chef... nope !!!
Dear wandering weirdo,
I do have a slight and boarderline ocd compulsion to rip the the knife from a persons hand, because I cringe at the sight of people using ( incorrectly) knives, for fear that they’ll do themselves a mischief, it really sets my teeth on edge, like nails on a chalk board...
Hello to all out there,
This thread has been quite an interesting read thus far, and has got me rethinking my strategy for my coming trip in June this year.
I was just going to eat out at restaurant tapas bars/cafes as I hadn’t considered cooking for myself whilst on my trip.
I am quite a social...
