    Albergue Casa Rual Las Águedas in Murias de Rechivaldo on the CF just 5 kms west of Astorga, on the 2nd July 2016, during the shared evening meal. The meal was vegetarian and delicious.

    After several major surgeries early this year, I am hoping to keep using my faded t'shirts and shorts.

    Hmm indeed, shrinking clothes appears to be a common worldwide lockdown phenomenon. How strange...

    I find that this is common for clothes that I leave in a drawer for too long. Perhaps they need sunlight to prevent shrinking. On the other hand, on rare occasions, I've found the opposite to occur. When I went on my 2016 camino, I found that...

    May 4, 2015 on The Camino Frances. It's very foggy here in Brisbane this morning. It was also very foggy and wet on this morning 6 years ago when I realised I was lost, having taken the wrong track up the mountain to O'Cebriero. My only walking...
