    Two pilgrims rescued ibaneta pass

    There's a spot on this route where there's a statue on a beautiful cliff. When you go to see it, it's easy to become disoriented and go down the wrong path (I did!). They even warned us about it at the pilgrims's office. But yes, after 10 minutes of walking (and chatting... it's the chatting...

    Just finished my Camino Frances with 40km yesterday but can’t get Compostela or Certificate of Distance

    I like what you said about friends. :) My official paper sits in a cupboard and no one asks to see it for proof; the feeling inside is the same. If it means a lot, I think if you write to them it would help. You have a way with words. :)

    I flew into France, so I haven’t yet been to an airport in Spain (I don’t think the cows on the Pyrenees cared), but because I will be going through Spanish airports on the way home, I got one. I like the posts explaining that the codes are not for the same purposes country to country.
