Re: UK politics

I see the attacks on Corbyn’s possible successor, Kier Starmer, have started in the right wing mainstream media. The Daily Heil et al are trying to suggest Starmer was responsible for Carl Beech. Their paymasters must be really worried about the potential of a Labour Party led by Starmer and I fully...

Re: This made me angry

Slightly. Although Im finding it difficult today of all days (A Level results day and things are coming up roses). Yes - carbon fibre is energy intensive in production, but the company that made this yacht (which was actually launched back in 2015 - not created specifically for this trip) has a rep...

Re: Camino de Santiago (Frances) - Sarria to Santiago

One of my new boots is also leaking. I've spoken to the shop and I have to take them in for them to have a look. It's only the left boot that the problem... >:(

Re: Camino de Santiago (Frances) - Sarria to Santiago

Well, I tried to book my bag into the Correos Camino system and it went well - until it was time to pay, when the system repeatedly crashed. I dropped them an email and got a response in about half an hour. They offered to take a list by email and let me pay at a post office when I got to Spain. As ...

Re: Camino de Santiago (Frances) - Sarria to Santiago

That's incredibly good value, although I guess it means deciding where you're staying in advance? I've already done that and booked them all online. I wanted to set myself realistic targets for the distance being walked each day, given as this bit is one of the very hilly/mountainous parts of the C...

Re: Camino de Santiago (Frances) - Sarria to Santiago

When you going, Reggers? My mum is something of an aficionado of the Camino Frances . I once joined her for a week, from León to Villafranca del Bierzo. She is an advocate of Thousand Mile Socks and Flexitol Heel Balm, and she keeps her pack down to 5kg. You'd be amazed what some people carry - she...

"The Way" also features at the end a superb practical teaching illustration for anyone who has ever been asked to explain how it is possible for a child's swing to gain height 😁
I watched it last night. Great film! 👍
