... was also roaming with the others. Just after the campsite was a lovely downhill where you could pick up enough speed to keep up the momentum to get to the top of the hill at a good speed.

On top of that the key messages I am taking with me from the last 9 weeks are; "piano, piano" which was said so often to me as I pounded the paths in France and I found whispering to myself as I was passed by eager new pilgrims in Spain.
