    Anyone else has taken T-Mobile phone?

    We are on the camino now with tmobile. So far so good. They say only 2g, and that seems to be enough for most email and facebook, but not videos. (I should say it was nicer in august when tmobile offered 4g free, but still ok for communication, not really entertainment). We usually connect with...

    Poles or no poles

    Did you run across crazy dogs? We found they were all pretty calm and quite used to pilgrims.

    What causes people to stop their caminos?

    Stretching... My husband and I are on the Camino, and we stretch whenever my feet and heels get a twitch (plantar fasciitis) or his back starts hurting. It looks weird, but it really helps. (One friend looked up and said she thought we had been zapped by aliens!)

    Women and the need to relieve oneself along the trail

    My friend used a PStyle http://www.amazon.com/dp/B002AA2LDW/?tag=casaivar02-20 on her Camino and strongly recommended it - I bought one and was successful using it the first time. It is hard plastic trough, with smooth edges, so you can basically scrape (that doesn't sound comfortable, but...
