Let me ask you something: in your day to day life, would you ever go to a café, take a seat, take your shoes and socks off and start inspecting and touching your feet? Don’t think so. The Camino Etiquette is not that different.
Here’s another one: in your day to day life, would you enter your home with dirty boots or would you rather leave them at your door steps?
Is it me, or is there a growing lack of respect on the Camino? Maybe it’s time we share some good-old respect rules, because it’s simply not okay to do whatever you want and say ‘that’s the Camino’.
