    Were we conned outside Sarria

    When we arrived at the Cathedral in Santiago in 2015, I was videotaping as we walked through the archway into the square. Grandiose notions of capturing the big moment of our arrival after all of our hard work, blah blah blah... I had no sooner stepped into the light when I was accosted by a...

    Attacked by dog at Biduedo (about 6.5 K before Triacastela)

    While I would not carry one of these devices, (largely due to the fact that I don't see how you could realistically manage to carry it and utilize it)I also don't understand why dog owners think it is okay for their dog to rush up to people and expect us to understand that "He/She is a nice...

    Attacked by dog at Biduedo (about 6.5 K before Triacastela)

    I think there is a certain amount of truth to that. I tried very hard to maintain a calm exterior when I came across the many dogs we continued to encounter, knowing full well that they sense fear (and aggression). Just not easy to shake off the sense of unease even now.

    I could provide the photo of my bruised derriere for inspiration. Wouldn't that make for a colourful work of art above the mantel?!

    I generally prefer bigger dogs also. The little yappy ones are usually the biggest trouble makers. Not this time!

    Why thank you kind sir. I now feel a need to shop for a super hero(ine) cape! The children in my daycare should be suitably impressed.

    Apologies Bad Pilgrim, I just saw this. Here in Victoria, BC Canada a similar thing would happen. The dog would likely be seized and held while an investigation was done. This has reminded me that I still need to follow up with La Guardia Civil in Sarria. I am curious to know what came of my...

    Thank you. I certainly hope nobody else experiences this. I'm grateful it was my rear, and not a child's head!

    Thank you Kanga. My mental status has always been questionable but physically I will be fine. Right now there are still teeth marks and very colourful bruising to admire but fortunately I keep it all under cover from the masses!

    Oooh, I like gold stars- thank you Laurie! I did get ice cream as a treat for behaving so well at the hospital...perhaps a little wine as well Other than a bad 24 hour period we have had a wonderful Camino and even the past few days of rain and wind haven't dampened our spirits. Our socks...

    Thank you Ivar, for sharing this. I am the peregrina who was bitten. I appreciate the well wishes and discussion. In this case there was no warning from the dog. My husband is generally a slower walker than I am and was just behind me when this happened. He says that the dog got up from where...
