- Camino(s) past & future
I am escorting the Roll of Honour (Afghanistan) on Camino France on 20 May from SJPDP
The Roll of Honour details the 41 young Australians who died on Active Service in Afghanistan. In the centenary of the ANZAC’s, the Roll of Honour will be escorted to 41 prominent places and events around the World, laying 41 Poppies at each location.
The biggest disappointment I have had on the Camino is the noise level that emanates from outside the Albergues from locals mostly drunk and talking loudly( which they do most of the time) this is not a shot at them as it is their Country their town and mostly their tavern to unwind. I just wish there was more information on these Albergues as to a rating on noise levels. I stayed at the San Francisco Albergue in Leon for two days and on the Friday night they allow all the locals to utilitise the cheap accommodation at the expense of pilgrims and their screaming kids to run amok till midnight with no attempt by management to quieten them, not what you want when you need your sleep after s hard days walking. I decided to sleep in much to the chagrin of the management.
