    Oh dear... cell phone app Iphone — Vodaphone — question and warning

    I love your detailed posts. Now feeling well informed as I head off to have my iPhone unlocked here in Nova Scotia, Canada to ready myself for CF in three weeks time. Yay!

    Overheating Gortex Shoes

    I wrote a similar post about this issue last week and received some helpful advice. Mine is definitely heat and distance related. I will certainly try to avoid training in extreme heat and elevate the legs up a wall post walking to allow the blood and lymph to return throughout the body...

    A dollar well spent

    I certainly hope so, Michele. Like you I'm also down one toenail and am getting some funny looks when wearing my flip flops. Still, so worth it for the upcoming adventure. Keep up the good work! Hope we meet up.

    Will be bringing compression socks for the long flight so will have those if need be. An ounce of prevention.... Thanks.

    A dollar well spent

    So I'm six weeks away from my big adventure. It's been a year long education in "all things Camino". Books purchased, gear tested, flights arranged and training walks logged. Foundational to this important bucket list item has been my countless hours spent on this forum. So imagine my...

    Best way from SDC to Lisbon

    Took this good advice and have tickets booked post Camino in October to fly from La Coruna to Lisbon. Very affordable (Rome2Rio) and will arrive via train or taxi from SDC the morning of departure.

    Bra Recommendations?

    Going with one Champion sports bra and one ExOfficio crossover as noted above. The ExOfficio dries super fast when rolled in a towel then hung to dry. Champion affordable, at approx 25$ and great support. ExOfficio 60$, not cheap so hoping it proves it's worth.

    A growing concern.

    Thank you for this most entertaining and comforting post. I suffer from the same affliction, quietly worrying and thinking that my husband and others close to me are all of the mind that Camino planning had become my "post retirement new normal" and really is all I have to talk about when they...
