    Well, two days on and it´s still really cold! I wish I had a proper sleeping bag as last night the albergue was really chilly, but at least it had blankets. Thanks for the replies! Sagalouts, the politest way to leave early is to be all ready and packed the night before so it is just a case of...

This morning was the coldest and at 7 am, walking through Revenga it was numbing. Even the Spanish have been noting the cold in the mornings, and now in Carrion, it...

    Unexpected hiking boot pain

    I recently bought a lovely pair of Berghaus Gore-tex Explorer hiking boots and thought they would be perfect for when I start the Camino in July. I thought I would try to start to wear them in by hiking for two days with a heavyish backpack including tent in the humid environment of Lantau...
