    Anyone have a favourite British Pilgrimage?

    Read 'The salt path' before embarking on the South West footpath. A bit grim to start with though. The book is available on Bookbox from your local library.

    Not bitten. I believe eating garlic in your diet helps to ward off mosquitoes etc.

    Any lodgings between Orisson and Roncevalles

    Don’t push the hip too far on the first day. It is a very hard walk uphill and down the last 3km is steep too.

    Help! The walking pole makes me feel like the walking dead!

    I found they really helped on the downhill bits. But I’m older and need all the help I can get. Yes they are a pain and get in the way sometimes, I have to put up with that bit.

    Ok I’ll just say it...bladder leaks

    Talk to your doctor about Botox injections in the neck of your bladder. My mother was one of 100 guinea pigs that had it done. Three sessions sorted it.

    The use of blackmail in the internet.

    I’m sad for you. There are a minority of people who think an albergue is a posh hotel. An albergue as far as I can see is a part of a family. A Camino family. Please stay positive and continue to offer true pilgrims a sactuary.

    The most Pilgrim rituals of the Camino

    I walked from St. Jean and didn’t need to leave anything along the way. I brought my memories home with me.

    Not getting my training time in....

    Take your rucksack when you go shopping. Put your groceries in it. Get the feel of the weight. Don’t pack too much clothing. You can always buy the odd tee shirt...
