    Crash and Burn: Violating My Own Cardinal Rule of Hiking

    Arrived in Santiago on Saturday 13th, very wet but very happy :). I'm at the stage where the whole Camino is a blur but I will have fun sorting out my photos and mementoes when I get back to London. I just wanted to thank everybody for the advice and information you've all shared - thanks to...
