She loses them her first day and then her real adventures start. Acerbic and funny, it is an interesting study of the politics of women and the power of intuition.
- SPANISH STEPS: One man and his Ass on the Way to Santiago – by Tim Moore
Life is never dull if you decide to walk 800 kilometres across the north of Spain with a French donkey – a lady of strong opinions, who leads Londoner Tim Moore a merry chase, so to speak.
