Allergies

Just a tip for those of you that suffer from allergies, in Galicia (and I think in Spain in general) the pollen season has started.

My car was covered in yellow pollen when I picked it up going home from Santiago just now.

Saludos,
Ivar

Thanks for that warning Ivar.
At our camino workshops we always advise people who have allergies, or who have had allergies at any stage of their life, to take antihistamines with them. You might have built up a resistance in your own country but when you are in a different environment with different pollens, seeds, grasses etc., your old allergies could falre up.
This happened to Kathy who walked the Via Francigena with me to Rome in 2006. She had such a bad reaction to local grasses that some days she couldn't see out of her eyes and had big, red welts all over her body.
