    WhatsApp, pay in advance?

    Most albergues based on trust. I would emailed them to book, and agreed on a method to communicate later : WhatsApp or email. I would remind them one week in advance and the day I arrive. But some give you a link to 'validate' the credit card, only charge on day of arrival.

    Book on Spanish History

    I have Gitlitz and Davidson's in eBook version, so that I can read on the way. It's particularly useful when visiting the churches 😊 I could look up at those beautiful carvings on tympanum, then read about it on my phone.

    Paris Accommodation

    I stored my backpack in there after my stay, but not before. But I think you probably can, because there is a front desk, just maybe put a remark when you book, the hostel manager was very nice, she answered my questions before my arrival via email. Tip: try book on their website directly.

    Duo Lingo or Something Else?

    1301 days on Duolingo, picked it up again during pandemic. Not that I can speak Spanish now, but this time round it was so much easier for me to order food and made simple conversation.

    I started 24th Sep from SJPP. The road was busy but not crowded, it got lesser and lesser as we walked. Then, it got busy again towards the end.

    O Pedrouzo to Santiago de Compostela

    This last 19km is lovely. On our last day we decided to take a very slow walk, stop at cafe, chatting, counting down at milestones, group selfie on the road. I am sure both of you will enjoy meeting others pilgrims coming from longer distances. It like going into Santiago to attend a fiasta.

    The dreaded plantar fasciitis - just as I’m about to start…

    My conditions improve with calves stretching after advice from physio. Now I do it twice a day. I will make it a point to do proper warm up and stretching before I walk next week. Hope this helps
