    COVID CDC Do Not Travel List

    I am not sure exactly where to post this, but the interactive map put out by the CDC within the article might be of general interest. Not very encouraging to say the least.

    There has been rain on each of the last 25 consecutive days in Santiago. November is on its way to becoming the wettest in years. YUCK!!

    San Sebastián University Hospital

    I arrived in Spain on Tuesday (5/7) expecting to start the Norte today. But yesterday, while having a look around Irún, I sat down on a bench. As soon as I sat down, I got this sharp searing pain in my knee. I do have arthritis and have had similar episodes periodically, but they’ve always...

    Post a Picture of Shoes or Boots

    Recently someone started a "POST YOUR SHADOW" thread and the resulting pictures were awesome. I was rather hung up on discarded boots and shoes and photographed them at every opportunity.

During this time, I did the Mass reading 37 times in various churches...

    ABANCA doesn’t charge a fee.

    I did the Francés in 2015 and again in 2017 and rarely had to pay an ATM fee. I am now doing the Norte from Oviedo/Avilés to Santiago and was rather shocked to find that a €5 fee is the norm no matter whose machine you hit. I am currently in Luarca and I happily stumbled upon a CAJA RURAL ATM...
