    I just got back from Spain and can also tell you countless stories of kindness from people that lived there and from those on the Camino. Good job! Cheers, Michael

    • Do tell us at least one story.

        There were so many!! Here’s one that touched me. Sue (my Australian walking companion) and I were in a village at the beginning of the climb to O Cebreiro (a massive climb!) and there was an elderly lady (in her 80’s) walking down the road. I happen to speak fluent Spanish so I jokingly said to her, “Have you come down off the mountain?” She laughed and while holding my hand and stroking it told me to make sure that I put my jacket on because it was cold and to make sure to eat before the climb and drink plenty of water. She was a kind soul with a vibrant twinkle in her eye! This was one of the moments that make the Camino special. Cheers, Michael

      • How sweet she was! You have many memories to cherish.
