    I went to the ear, nose and throat doctor and the audiologist made me a custom pair that really keep out the sound! My husband is a terrible snorer also. It is really a problem but these really help and I always bring my sound machine with me also. It is a little portable Brookstone sound...

    To the person who wanted to inspire love . . . you didn't!

    I agree. I don't like the way some people also put their name on these markers with their idea of catchy little quotes or just signing their name. It is vandalism. You see some people's name all along the way as you are walking. It is very unfortunate.

    Some things a little over the top.

    When we walked the Camino last year there was a guy with a bell attached to his backpack that we couldn't seem to get away from. It was SOOO annoying so I understand what you are talking about. I do feel it is inconsiderate of others to have any noise causing thing as you walk because to me the...

    New foot injury -requesting advice - do I cancel my Camino?

    My daughter and I just finished the Portuguese camino last week. I also had an ankle injury a year ago and went to physical therapy for months to get the mobility back in my foot. I can't imagine doing that walk with foot pain. The camino in Portugal is lots of cobblestones and many times they...
