      I prefer not to live my life out of fear. If the only places that I could go in this world were places where other people were watching me then I would not be long for this world. I cherish the opportunities that I have to go places where there...

      I carry a 660ml bottle (about a pint). I get into the habit of taking a good swig as I enter each hamlet or village, and refill it every time there is a source. At Carrion los Condes (or similar places on other Caminos where there is a known gap...

      Let weather forecasts be part of that calculus. Crossing from SJPdP to Roncesvalles I went through 6L of water. It was sunny and incredibly windy. All of the water I drank was stripped away from my skin (no bathroom break even with all that...

      G_the_D replied to the thread The final few kms.

      G_the_D replied to the thread Walking with headphones?.
      I wear a single ear bud. It allows me to switch my attention from the podcast I'm likely listening to, to the sounds of the Camino. If a conversation is offered, the ear bud comes out. Not for everyone, but it works for me. G

      G_the_D replied to the thread Ordering beer in Spain.
      A cana is a normal sized draught beer. Generally speaking this is what most people would order (30cL). I have ordered a cana grande to get a large beer. Along the Frances, the bar keepers have (I'm certain) hard it all and know what you mean...

      Beilari gets my approval. They are wonderful people who know pilgrims and their needs.

      G_the_D replied to the thread Camino bug is nibbling.
      Well it seems the absolute majority is backing my initial instinct. When I get to booking, I'll be booking for Sevilla with a destination of Salamanca. Thanks all! Gord
