    LIVE from the Camino Burgos

    I didn’t like black pudding but in Burgos it tastes really good. I had some with eggs this morning and was reminiscing of how great it tasted when I arrived in Burgos.

    We went to evensong in Canterbury cathedral on Wednesday. We had to wear masks. There was recorded singing and live organ music. There is scaffolding up but is was still a good experience it was at 5.30pm. You enter the cathedral near the Wetherspoon in Burgate.

    Pilgrimage in England: Winchester to Canterbury

    I definitely advise spend some time in Aylesford. There is a premier inn Maidstone (sandling) which is close to the route. It may be worth considering as somewhere to stop for the night.

    Pilgrimage in England: Winchester to Canterbury

    We were in Aylesford today we did see one pilgrim with his shell. The cafe was open but pilgrim hall closed. It was not possible to stay there. It was wonderful to walk around the friars, I think Doug recommended it.

    COVID Booking.com cancellations

    Why don’t you take the voucher? You could offer it to another pilgrim if you don’t want to stay there yourself.

    My old Camino shoes have been stolen.....

    Have you checked outside your house as I once had a break in and found my less valuable belongs scattered in a nearby field. Also if you let us know size and make we can all look out for them on eBay. I agree it is now a time for short walks which is good to break in new boots.

    No eggs here today in our local supermarkets in uk. I am about to make Caldo verde but am putting chorizo in mine. Great idea to cook comfort food whilst isolating

    Ingles weather in May - something resembling a real question

    We walked the ingles last june and it rained on and off. I advise you buy or borrow an Altus poncho then you don’t need to worry as you will be dry
  17. B


    My Altus poncho is fantastic I bought it from this forum. It is perfect for Galician rain and good in the uk also. I wore it today as we still have stormy weather here.

    Dealing with sensitive skin on the CDS

    A brand of soap called simple soap is very good because of allergies we use this for body hands and clothes washing. You can cut a bar in half or smaller to save on weight. The liquid version has additives such as linolool so try the bar of simple soap.

    I just fold up my fleece and use that. Ikea has small cheap pillows that you may wish to try
