    Having a hard time

    Meggins - due to injury, my Camino was cut short after 6 days in March of this year. I hope to get to Pamplona and bus to where I ‘hit the wall’ and walk to Santiago. Will only have 3 weeks so will most likely have to bus some of the way. My hope is to go September’19. Nancy lee from Canada

    Shoe and Foot Strategies When Walking While It Is Raining and Wet

    My Camino lasted 6 days which my doctor and physiotherapist speculate was caused by my boots (vasque $250 CAN). I left SJPP on a nice sunny day on March 17 this year. Shortly after valcarlos, the weather changed dramatically to hail, then wet snow. We encountered consecutive days of cold...
