Camino Frances (2013)
I‘m sure experts were involved in this decision-making, but i still find myself shuddering when I think of what damage a spackle knife might do to some of those old tiles. And I’m sure sorry I didn’t see this old cathedral when I was in Dublin a few years ago. Guess I’ll just have to go back. 😊😊

PS - @Kanga, there are cushiony soft carpenter knee pads one can use for this job. They’re good too for keeping one’s knees clean while working in the garden. 😊

cycled from Pamplona Sep 2015;Frances, walked from St Jean May/June 2017. Plans to walk Porto 2020
A great project. My knees are hurting just thinking about it. I can safely recommend it from the other side of the world..,
I agree K. I would need 10 cm of padding for each knee, an a 10 min rest each 30 mins so my productivity would not be very high!
