Our Readers Recommend : SPAIN by Bob Lennan, Cambria Spanish Steps Adventure Walking Tours. "Wonderful two-week hiking-and-van tour of the Camino de Santiago, from the village of Roncesvalles in the Pyrenees to Santiago de Compostela. We hiked more than 100-miles of the more than 450-mile route. Guide Judy Colaneri was very organized and had a great personality. First-class lodging, excellent food."
