    Don't bother. Too tired to read.

    Music from Galicia - BBC Port w Julia Fowlis

    Thank you. I love the music. The Piper, as I walked through the tunnel in the square at SDC, made my Camino.

    Which size rucksack?

    I took 28 litres. I am a short older female. Would go up to 32litres next time so I could fit sleeping bag inside rather than hanging off the backpack. On the sleeping bag question - I'm glad I took one and would again.

    How do you repair Atlus rain poncho?

    I have some tape for repairing tents. The hardware store calls it material or fabric tape. It is a woven tape. This is in Australia. It wasn't very expensive.

    Deep_Puncture_wound_right foot. What helped you w/ similar experience?

    The absolute best thing to speed healing is Calendula. Calendula cream or ointment will do but if you can, get hold of fresh flowers and make a strong tea to bathe your foot with. Arnica pillules will help the internal bruising and swelling.

    Fun With a Poncho. . . multitasking

    My poncho actually has reinforced holes around the base for tent poles in case shelter is needed.

    While you're not doing anything else ... help identify this church!

    If you watch Efren Gonzales Vlog on Camino Portugese, there is a very similar church on the way to Finisterre. Like you, I didnt remember that on my CF but was surprised to see it on the youtube clip.

    Lets Build an Albergue!

    A window I could open. So many hot stuffy rooms.

    Rain protection - ( Overkill ? or cut back to save some weight?)

    The backpack cover definitely. I took one poncho whick I carried for 36 days and wore once. I sweated so much under it I would have been better to leave it off. Walked in Sept/Oct so it was warm in the rain. Take the lightest poncho or a rain jacket.

    Proper cutlery on Lufthansa economy. I was surprised. Food was good too.
