The business (basically a CRM database) passed into better hands in 2012. These materials remain here for cannibalisation and amusement.

A Cantabrian brown bear encounter in the Valley of Aguayo

With brief ramblings on population spread, and a longer rant on the vexed and under-reported subject of bear-human conflict, with a 15th century Spanish account of a bear attack.

Eating and accommodation tips for GR99, GR85, GR73

With comments on the casa rural bubble and a call for deregulation of rural hostelries and shops in order to prevent walkers starving to death.

In recognition of the problems we're all facing this year, we're offering 10% off all prices for Barcelona walking tours and tours in other locations until the end of September.
