Pilgrim Passports

As those who have followed our other 'Camino' blogs will know we need a 'Pilgrim Passport' or 'Credencial' in order to stay in the pilgrim hostels or to receive a certificate in Santiago. Our new 'credenciales' have just come with the start given as Oviedo, the nearest city to our ending at Covadonga last year. We had been thinking of walking in 2014 but it will now be 2015 before we start this Camino. Plenty of time for planning and to keep in practise.

We had debated whether to continue as from Covadonga, with the 2013 credenciales. Begining in Oviedo gives a sense of continuation and also a fresh start in a new year. So our first sello (stamp) will be from the Cámara Santa in Oviedo cathedral before we continue on our way to Ribadeo.

Meanwhile we need to keep walking and planning as we wait to walk again.
