    I travelled in October by train. There is one train a day but with a rather hurried connection in Vigo; or a bus I recall every hour or so. Probably they don't yet have timetables for May on the website.

    I arrived at the Nájera municipal albergue last night to cheers from the pilgrims and a hug from the volunteer hospitalero. There were supposed to be two volunteers on duty, but one had left suddenly. There were 27 pilgrims staying the night. 27...
