My sister-in-law and I are on the verge of committing to a walk from Leon to Santiago the middle of September, 2018. We are both over 60, though youthful and fit ; - ). My husband is very concerned about safety with "no one around to defend us". Egads. Does anyone have any thoughts for me? And if this should be posted on a different thread or Forum, please let me know - I'll admit I'm a novice to forums. Thank you so much in advance for your advice.
