I took advantage of a break in our rather miserable weather today to commence training walks for my next camino. It was deliciously warm and sunny as Roly and I set out along La Turvilla stream, through groves of fruit trees and into the natural park. It was a delightful walk, of almost 13 km and I felt much too tired when I reached home. I definitely need to build up my stamina. Here are some photos I took along the route.

Trepidatious Traveller - camino blog is about preparing for and walking the Camino de Santiago. Many future pilgrims have found the blog useful and inspiring, and many who have no plans to walk the camino have simply enjoyed the dialogue http://www.magwood.me

Lovely photos. You’ll soon get your walking legs back Maggie. Do you have dates yet? Where are you starting your Portuguese from? I’ve booked my trains and St Jean and Orisson (going to try do whole of Frances route this time), eek!
Hi Annie, i arrive in Lisbon 30 April and will set off from there either the 1st or 2nd May. When do you set off? I envy you walking through those beautiful villages in the west of Spain. I loved the whole route, but particularly the last third.
