Chatting with pilgrims near Astorga

The essence of the Camino?

Stuart Profile SmallA woman stopped us at a Pilgrim cross on the walker’s Camino just outside Astorga.

“Have your children discovered the essence of the Camino yet?’ she asked.

I think she must have been talking about those one euro plastic chupa balls the kids discover every time we stop. Every village on the Camino seems to sell them.

I think we are carrying about 14 of them now.

Yes, they totally get it.
