SPAIN | Saturday, 13 June 2009 | Views [338] | Comments [1]

I knew footwear was key in making the camino a pleasant walk. My first hours on the way I was paying close attention to shoes. It seemed like everyone was wearing sturdy serious hiking boots and very few of us were wearing sneakers. Hmm, I started to wonder if the majority knew something that I didn't and if I would find out later. An Irish woman I met at SCQ suggested wearing “woolly” hiking socks which keep your feet dry. I bought a pair immediately.

But surprise of all surprises—I haven't had any problems with my feet. No blisters, No sores, No pain, No barking dogs, No use of band aids. No nothing:-)

Every eve I slather on deep moisturizing foot cream with mint and lavender. I slather it on basically because I want to use it up. I need to ditch the heavy jar it comes in before I get my next Ryanair flight!(see previous entry) 

Well, I should clarify. When I say no pain, I am referring to my feet. There are aches and pains.. just not in my feet where I had expected. So, I feel like I am ahead of the game...or I guess, in this case, ahead of the walk.



Not sure if my last comment went thru so here it is again.

I am printing your entries to show mom; I know you sent her the webpage but not sure if she is checking it.

Good job! You are doing great with all that walking!
