Greetings from Santiago

Hello all,

Just completed my trip from Porto to Santiago. A wonderful journey which I want to dedicate to my son, who is going through a rough time in his life.
If you travel the route in winter - be prepared for rain ( and washed out tracks/paths) and solitude. Also be aware of TRAFFIC - from hair raising to down right life threathening!

I will be celebrating tonight!


Down bag (90/10 duvet) of 700 fills with 180 g (6.34 ounces) of filling. Mummy-shaped structure, ideal when you are looking for lightness with great heating performance.
