I am reading a number of pilgrims' blogs at the moment and many describe the roads approaching Galicia as cold and wet. This is one report:

Arrived here yesterday in the fog & rain & freezing cold...most pilgrims came over the hill in a taxi for some of the way including us....it was almost impossible to see coming over the hills....the taxi was only able to go about 40kms....could only see about 1 car space in front of us...quite scary as the road was quite twisty & steep & not in very good condition. Staying here in a hotel for a couple of nights to get warm....am sick of being cold...we thought the weather would be much warmer than it has been. Can't believe they are in the middle of a really bad drought....so bad that on telly the other night the headlines were that they are having to ship in water to Barcelona....so things are quite bad....maybe I should stop having a whinge about the rain, eh!"
