Camino 3 day after: Santiago de Compostela to Porto

Time to leave Santiago de Compostela and Spain for Porto in Portugal. I am sure that I will be back in Spain in a not too distant future. With Good Mrs next time. Spain is still my favourite European country.

Camino 2 day after: Santiago de Compostela

Rain had fallen overnight in Santiago de Compostela. Despite Weather Channel’s assurances last night of cloudy weather only. It didn’t matter. I had no particular plans for today anyway other than more strolling and some shopping. And goodbyes. To whoever

Camino 1 day after: Santiago de Compostela

My first post Camino night was quite interruptive. At the hostel “The Last Stamp” in old town of Santiago de Compostela. The Last Stamp faces a narrow lane just a few blocks from Santiago de Compostela Cathedral. And my bed was close to

Camino Day 38: Pedrouzo to Santiago de Compostela 19km

The last day of my Camino… I was out of the albergue around 7.30am for the final stretch of Camino Frances. This last albergue in Pedrouzo was far too noisy and with too much early morning lights going on and off for a

Camino Day 36: Ponte Campaña to Arzua 24km

Navigational malfunction during today’s walk to Arzua. Also known as getting lost. That’s how this day started. A price you may have to pay by leaving and trying to find your way in the dark. Once you realize that the “Camino”

Camino Day 35: Gonzar to Ponte Campaña 22km

Today’s theme towards Ponte Campaña was rain. You don’t believe me. Then check out this morning’s TV weather forecast. Pretty much the whole of Spain could expect rain. Thanks to Peregrino Randy from Florida, USA for the above picture. Deb and

Camino Day 34: Barbadelo to Gonzar 26km

Today we entered turigrino territory. Why? Because today I broke the “less than 100km left to go” barrier. It is less than 100km left to walk before Santiago de Compostela. As little as possible over 100km seems to be the distance that most turigrinos walk. And a minimum

Camino Day 33: Triacastela to Barbadelo 22km

Another early morning that didn’t work out all that well. I was out by 7am after a good breakfast as the kitchen facilities were great. Walking out of Triacastela, Deb, Win and I “joined forces” with an American woman. She carried

Camino Day 32: Laguna de Castilla to Triacastela 23km

The guide book specifies 6 stages beyond today and I expect to finish the Camino in 6 days. That means walking into Santiago de Compostela on Thursday 22 October. If it all goes to plan. The guidebook’s suggested destination for tomorrow’s
