    Mozarbe from Malaga

    Hi everyone. Finalised my dates and will be leaving Malaga on the 25th of March 2020. Anybody en- route at that time feel free to correspond. A bit anxious about the isolation but a big thanks to Magwood for her wonderful blog. Looking forward to all those Olive trees😁

    Support for addicts walking the Camino?

    Hi. Generally a subtle message in AA lingo should be enough to generate the support needed and also would be subtle enough to avoid breaking Anonymity etc. Fortunately with modern technology AA meetings can be found if needed while walking the Camino. Personally I walked the Norte last year and...
