[My apologies that this post has been so long in the works. There’s something about coming so close to the end that makes that last little bit hard to get through. Although I will be continuing this blog I’m not sure of the regularity past documenting this trip or where I will go next, both in terms of writing and the actual adventuring. But this post marks the last of the Camino walk itself and then I will have 2 more about our last couple Spanish destinations.
We began the next day eating breakfast with a rather intense pair of women that were headed all the way to Arzúa, the cheese capital. As much as I wanted to make it there eventually I thought 29km/18 miles was a little ambitious for us. Or rather, we can do it but we don’t have fun. And who wants to be too tired for cheese? Even more intense, though, were the hunting dogs caged up in a weird short trailer attached to the back of a truck outside.
The bus from Lugo to Sarria teemed with people shuffling about without any care for assigned seating. It was also completely full. It was a fairly short ride though so I didn’t care. It was still a bright and sunny afternoon when we arrived and we walked through streets that were more empty than I expected up and around the hill to our monastery of La Magdalena albergue.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
