An 'honest Scot'? Heaven forbid! ;)Yes, it was a busy week with much work done. Thank you to our sponsors. Here are 'before and after' photos to show a little of what your generosity achieves, and a third to remind us how beautiful our Camino is.
Sorry you're having trouble with the charts. I just downloaded it onto my phone and it seemed to work OK, but I know what these things can be like. It may be worth trying again just in case there was a glitch when it unzipped.
As far as updates, I started one in spring but then lost...
Hi Jacques-D. You probably took the photo! I've been a bit ill over the last year or so, so no Caminos for me. I miss it, so I'm hoping to do one next year. I hope all is well with you! Buen Camino amigo. K
I thought this programme handled the Camino very well. It embraced to spiritual and religious aspects rather than 'playing it safe' by reducing it to a long walk. Alex P was clearly moved by the whole experience of Santiago. Pity the bit about the Camino wasn't a bit longer, and Jonhiewalker...

Sound advice. In my 4 years as a Ditch Pig I've suffered no more than a groin strain, a near-death flu, and gunshot wounds. You might not be so lucky.
Seriously though, have a great time and thanks to you all!
If we have too many ditch pigs, I'll volunteer to go to the abattoir (so to speak). I've been fortunate to take part several times, and we don't want anyone taking the dogs' beds from them, do we? Have fun!
Yes - I've arrived in Santiago several times, so my answer would be 'more often than not'. However I usually arrive at busy times of year and spend at least a couple of days in SdC, so that increases my chances too!
