    Will it EVER slow down?

    Yes totally! We were sleeping in an attic area/top floor of a hostel, 3 of us, and there was a window and fan but the one young European girl insisted on closing the window and not having the fan on:( Needless to say we were quite warm.... I'm from an Eastern European background but thought it...

    Recommendations: No blisters, no sunburn!

    I wore my toe socks occasionally as well, but I tend to get the worse blisters around the heels, so those didn't help as much for that. But they are great otherwise.

    Thieves at large on camino

    Thats so upsetting! I was there in Los Arcos a month ago when they also stole a bunch of phones, money etc. Luckily I wasn't staying at the municipal that time. I sure hope they catch them soon!

    Overthinking Camino number 2...

    oh my gosh... same thing here.. I leave in 2 days for Paris to start my 2nd camino on April 11th from SJPDP. I know I am overthinking this one especially as the last one was only 10 days from Porto. Well we just have to go with it all and things will work out. Buen Camino!

    Help with Lamb's Wool Questions...?

    I would love some of this wool. A Scottish self proclaimed "DR" fixed my friends blisters with this on the Portuguese 2 years ago. I'm on the west coast of Canada. Does anyone know where I can find this here? I tried ordering from the site mentioned but it didn't go through.

    Stop in Santiago or continue to Finisterre/Muxia?

    HI John.. thanks for replying. I wasn't planning on staying in Santiago for those last days, but rather, going to Cinque Terre with other friends who were joining us of the last 230km of Frances. But then got thinking of just staying in Spain and continuing on to Finisterre/Muxia.

    Stop in Santiago or continue to Finisterre/Muxia?

    I was thinking of going to go to some other part of Europe for the last 5-6 days, maybe Italy's Cinque Terre, but I also didn't want to be rushed. Appreciate everyone's input!

    Stop in Santiago or continue to Finisterre/Muxia?

    Thank you Laurie. You always have in-depth thoughtful replies. Hmmm... getting more difficult to decide which way first. But I'd love to check out that albergue and town of Dumbria! May have to go to Muxia, then backtrack to Hospital and head to Finisterre! I'll see how much time I have.

    Stop in Santiago or continue to Finisterre/Muxia?

    Haha... Old is a state of mind.... or maybe a state of your knees sometimes! Buen Camino!

    Stop in Santiago or continue to Finisterre/Muxia?

    thanks Loretta for your reply. I'm leaning towards continuing on, just not sure now whether Finisterre first or Muxia? But I'm sure it'll come together at the right time. I hope you get to come back and make it to Muxia next time. Gracias
