When we talk about walking the pilgrimage routes we often only remember the fanstastic weather and scenery like that depicted in this photograph by Colin Jones of the CSJ. This is a section of the camino between Simnacas and Ciguñela on the Madrid route.
But the weather in Spain isn't always sunny and perfect. Winters can be just as harsh as Scotland in places and in Galicia it can be even wetter - if you can imagine that.
So...congratulations to Rosie and Ian who have just completed the 5 day pilgrimage route from Ferrol on the North West Coast of Spain down into Santiago. It was rain all the way but this pair of intrepid pilgrims made it.
