Just being silly as I'm on the Camino in Viana....the best mental health benefit about walking is when you stop! Like hitting your head against a brick wall. It feels sooooooo good to stop

I like the sound of "hiking makes you smarter' ( though sometimes wonder after my self induced Camino injuries) .

I just imagine how much dumber I'd be if I didn't hike!! :confused:
Hey Jozero - I was almost in your neck of the woods on the island !! Hiked the JdeF Trail in gorgeous terrain and weather and have to return for more..... the WCT, Nookta or NCT ! Have you hiked any of these ? I'm off to Madrid in Oct to finish the VdlP from Salamanca. You can PM me if that's better :)
