    Passport control issues - Are they affecting inbound pilgrims

    More specifically, has anyone entered Spain via the ferry terminal at Santander/Bilbao in the last week. Have you been subject to these multi-hour waits that are being reported at present? For foot passengers entering at Santander I don't see their being any possibility of a multi-hour wait...

    Camino del Norte images from the trail - now viewable in all countries

    My first attempt had a music licensing problem. This one should be better. I tried to capture the feel of the walk in a 140 image video. Hope it works for you.
