    The legendary 'miracle' rings of Ourense

    Hi, I heard a discussion on the radio here in Ireland on this topic few days ago. Interesting, as I was in Ourense twice in Sept/Oct this year on my way to start walking in Puebla de Sanabria to Santiago and stayed again while walking. Very interesting.

    COVID Pilgrims Office in Santiago, queuing system

Then once you get a QR code or ququeing number by email they will let you enter when you arrive at the office. You pass the entrance to the garden, past the fountain and down steps. Go left and you will...

    Shower shoes?

    I also tag my crocs on the outside of my recksac for easy access. So I when sit down for coffee/beer/feet soak in a stream near my day's destination I have refreshed feet on arrival. I keep a small absorbant cloth in an outer pocket to dry my feet. Ideal is a microfiber dishcloth.
