    Bed bug bite HELP

    My daughter has gotten bed bug bites (pretty sure). She has sensitive skin so it’s pretty bad. I read that the bites can appear over the course of several days. She continues to show new bites.

    Lost Lost and found on the camino...

    Last week I lost my much liked camera between the pilgrims statue in Logrono and the lake park on the outskirts of Logrono. It had the usual Pilgrim photos between St Jean PP and Logrono as well as some shots from back home in Canada, so anyone finding it would know it was a pilgrims camera...

    Live - Camino Francés David's Cantina Outside Astorga

    The walk from Hospital De Orbiga to Astorga today was memorable. It rained during the entire journey. Parts of the trail was flooded and it was also muddy. I got to what is normally a wet weather creek that had developed into a raging river. As I approached it I wondered how I was going to...
