    Injury 24 hours before flight!

    Thank you so much for all of the support. I’ve decided to go ahead and if I walk 10 minutes and quit for the day so be it. Maybe in the end it will be exactly the Camino that I needed! Maybe I’ll spend a day sitting by the road handing out frozen treats???? Who knows? I will be in Spain...

    Equipment for Chubby Girls (perhaps an ongoing guide)

    Great post.... I was pretty sure i wasn’t the only short , chubby walker out there! I have the boobs to match the Ruebenesque figure which with my pack straps creates a nasty looking mono boob silhouette. I’m hoping the fashion police don’t make an appearance!

    Recent Camino pilgrim deaths- August 2018

    Its the saddest thing. Such a waste. I can only imagine how devastated their families are. I leave in ten days and I sure am hoping it cools off some.

    Duh! Do one this October then bring the grand baby with you next year!! You have to train him/her up so when you are too hold they will carry your pack or push your chair. ................planning ahead.

    Im so glad someone else thinks like me!!! As other posters have said it might depend on who else is depending on you. The five weeks might just be what you need to sort out the " whats next " in your life question. I see that you live in Canada. Im Canadian too so I can say with utter...

    New Graffiti in recently restored, Catedral de Santiago. Fachada de las platerias.

    Such wasteful destruction! I will never understand graffiti. I am never just walking around with paint. Thats the strangest thing - that you have to plan it. The big spray painted graffiti on overpasses confuses the heck out of me.....buying the paint ( expensive where I live) climbing up or...

    Advice for walking the Camino
