      I highly recommend listening to this, https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m001z69m it has a section quite early on about phone theft and what you can and should do. Basically set your screen lock to 30 seconds, set up the security features...

      I’m just back from a two-part Camino. The Via Serrana from Gibraltar to Sevilla, and then the Invierno from Ponferrada. I am experiencing the standard post-camino letdown, so I thought I’d reflect a bit. I have gone from walking the more...
