    Ladies, how do you keep valuables safe

    Hi there, not sure what a hippack is but I used a small pack that went around my waist with the pack itself at the front. I went to bed dressed in the next day’s attire including my hip pack/pouch. It didnt disturb my sleep as I sleep side to side. ☺️

    Bed bugs

    Hi, fellow Aussie here. I’m not sure if I encountered bedbugs on the Camino but… I did spray everything at the end and washed all cloth in 60 degrees at the laundromat at Santiago de Compostela. We were heading to a friend’s place in London and I didn’t want to take unwanted visitors. Buen Camino!

    Brisbane peregrine/as - where did you hill train

    Hi Glenda, If you feel like a drive on the weekend you could go to Mt Beerburrum. Very steep and similar to the gradient to Orrisson and beyond. Buen Camino! Kay
