      The Ingles was my first Camino. I did no research, no training, and had no expectations, beyond thinking it would be an adventure and give me time to finally figure out what I should have said and done differently, during one of the worst years...

      Shells reacted to J Willhaus's post in the thread The Camino walker and the biker. 🤣 with Like Like.
      I'm the one who can't remember which is my left or right! Just as likely to step in front of the bike as away from it.

      In 2016, I forgot to mail my ballot for the US Presidential Election, which was a critical one between Clinton and Trump. I had to ask my mother to help, but she refused because signing my name was illegal. She is such a law-abiding lady.

      Shells replied to the thread Path just before Maneru.
      I don't think it adds much real distance, but it is much more rustic and difficult underfoot--it was a true trail; at times, it was a real scramble and I sank deep into the mud in a couple of places. The ruins of the Monasterio Bogota looked...

      In Spain, I’ve had trouble finding hard candy (which I like to pop in my mouth for a quick carb fix). A few places carry Werthers, but that’s about it. So I would suggest Lifesavers, butterscotch pieces, Jolly Ranchers, etc.

      Thank you so much for your suggestions. I’m only walking from Ponferrada this year, ( I wish I were walking from St Jean again), but am so grateful for to be going back at all. Anyway, I saw Castillo del Saracen from a distance as I was...

      Shells reacted to CWBuff's post in the thread Monasterio de Santa Maria de Carracedo with Like Like.
      hi @Shells I absolutely would recommend Santa Maria de Eunate (very small detour after Alto Perdon, once getting into Muruzabal there are signs to your left advising you to move that way). To some chagrin the Web Info suggests it is temporary...

      Oh, please let me know what it’s like! I ended up deciding to pass on Carracedo because the website says that it’s closed on Monday, which is the day we’ll be the vicinity. So now I have another reason to go back!
