Heading towards Foncebadon and the Cruz de Ferro

I’m excited about this day and tomorrow. Tonight I climb the hills up to Foncebadon, above Rabanal.  So that early tomorrow I can reach the Cruz de Ferro soon after dawn…

  1. Again, thank you for the foot/shin care advice. I had not thought to educate myself on treatment options should I suffer shin splints.

    • It’s well worth finding a range of DIY treatments for the most common Camino injuries 🙂

      Helps also to recognize symptoms early!

      Also, you may be a 2-3 hour walk from the next village, so you need a few things to ‘mend’ problems along the way. At least to get you to the next stop.

      Of course for anything really serious, the emergency services will get to you. I saw a pilgrim being wheeled about a km along a small track on a wheeled ambulance stretcher.
