I think the Spanish churches are BEAUTIFUL -- and one thing I miss in the new "naked" churches are all the beautiful statues and decoration. So my response to her blog is "Pffffffft!"

A dorm bed is going to be 10-12 Euro by the time they reach Santiago. I have been to New Zealand and spent five times that for a crappy hotel room. There are moments in their blog where perspective has been lost, and I do not think it has to do with culture or context. It has a great deal to do with attitude.
