Is it not wonderful to be able to think next year I will walk the Portugues, or as Laurie recommends, Madrid to Leon, Salvador to oviedo, Primitivo to Lugo or transfer to Invierno at Ponferrada.My years ahead are filled Thank God. I also took a better camera with me this time and have no regrets. It sat easily on my waist band and was not heavy but much better quality photos. I love the "solitude". It is hard to explain to those at home who don't understand.
