    Brilliant post. Who would have guessed that a drought could have a positive side to it? Great pictures. Also love the quote…. if you see me weep. Obviously written by someone with a sense of tragedy and humour.

    Here is an interesting site to help explain how Spain ( or any country) will be different than what you’re used to. Just plug in Spain and then your own country.

    PrayerPose25 reacted to Sus1's post in the thread So why am I addicted to the Camino? with Like Like.
    Interesting perspective about the peeling of the layers of an onion, I like that. My thought about the camino is that it is like gradually unravelling a knot - it allows you to untangle the mess of ordinary life and allows you to reflect &...
