The Camino inspired me to do a solo walk in December 2014 from Manchester to Derby in authentic Jacobite period clothing following closely the route the army of Bonnie Prince Charlie took in 1745 from the Highlands of...
I left a special memory there in the shape of a laminated photograph which I secreted within the cross in the hope that it would remain there in July 2006.
In January 2009 I passed that way again, in the snow and was intrguiged to see if it was still there?
Not to be, it had gone. I had not...
This is totally amazing but I have just watched the film 'THE SECRET' went on Facebook and saw a
post from Ivar linking to this thread. I went on it and was the very issue that The Secret had been dealing with. Watch it, awesome. You will quickly realise how negative fear is.
I agree with everyone that it is nice to see the fond memories that this thread generated.
I was in La Coruña last January and my finacé and I were trying to find the bus to the Roman lighthouse (tour de Hercules).
A kind woman appeared out of nowhere and gave us directions to the bus stop...

Surely they are a high tech solution to a low tech problem!

I imagine there will be a bus service from the airport to the city.
If you get chance I can really recommend walking the 'ruta...
Metaphorically it did, because if you look carefully it is the world! :wink:
And that is what it felt like I was carrying when I first set out!
I did not look like a drifter though, perish the thought! :D
Actually, it felt like the freedom of speech and ideas were being curtailed in this case.
It is something that has not been talked about before and sometimes the same old equipment questions and backpack questions go on and on and if people simply did a search they would see their very question...
I have written a blog of our travels.

I was looking at someone's comment on staying at Monastery's on the Camino del Norte and it mentionned the bathrooms being dirty at Sobrado.
I really did not find them that bad, I've seen a lot...
There is a blog on http://www.shornclifferedoubt.com/ under news from rifleman Law
We followed the Camino Francès from Astorga to Sarria taking in the picturesque SanXil route from Triacastela. Then headed to Lugo (awful outskirts to trudge through) and stayed at Lugo (great city) 2 nights in...
all going well.
Some people are absolutely delighted to see us and want pictures of us in our uniforms with their friends.
The most touching episode was at Rabanal. Our lunch and beer was paid for us and many took photos of us, really enjoying the touch of colour we have brought.
It is wierd...
