I am currently sitting in Torp airport in the south of Norway, waiting for my flight home. I will have three days to get some extra training walks, wearing the clothes I will be walking in, and finalise the packing before I fly out again. Toiletries, odds and ends will be put in, taken out, … More Holding my packing nerve
You may have noticed that there is a counter on this blog steadily ticking down to another adventure. Not long now before I fly off to France to meet peregrina extraordinaire Colleen, of Are We There Yet? blog fame. We will spend a day walking, lunching, no doubt talking a lot about caminos past and … More New adventure coming soon!

It was another lovely day for walking – not too hot, not too cold, not to sunny, not too windy, in fact just right. When I got to Palas de Rei, I sat down outside … More CF Sola 19, Day 10: Portos-Melide
When I woke up, the dorm was practically empty again. I had a chat to Helen in the bed next to me, a lovely bubbly lady who started in Sarria and was already loving it. We ended up having a coffee together before starting out, and kept each other company through the day. It was … More CF Sola 19, Day 9: Portomarin-Portos
