You wait for four months, and then three come at once!

And last, but hopefully not least, in my little flurry of posting…I uploaded a couple of camino videos to youtube some time back, but don’t think I announced it on the blog. The first, rather long, one incorporates all stages … Continue reading

Reflections on the Caminos Primitivo and Fisterra

Here is part two of my 2017 camino round-up.  I won’t give too much detail as these are much more travelled routes and there is a lot of easily available information around. Setting out from Oviedo Marilyn and I bumped … Continue reading

It was a ¡buen camino!

I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has read and commented on my blog over the last 36 days. The comments really do give me a great boost every day. Please stick around for a … Continue reading

Stage 36 – Fisterra to Muxía, 28.5 km

My mojo was still in evidence this morning as I set off from Finisterre at just after 07:00. I hadn’t remembered the walk as being that great – it was the finale of my first camino (Frances) in 2013 when … Continue reading

Stage 35- O Logoso to Fisterra, 27.9 km

Before I forget I just was to report what fabulous people I have met the last couple of days. In A Pena I shared my supper with pilgrims from Switzerland, France, Germany, New Zealand, Spain and the UK. And I … Continue reading

Stage 34 – Piaxe (A Pena) to O Logoso 29.1 km

My wishful thinking didn’t come to fruition. There was a fierce downpour before dawn but unfortunately it was still raining, albeit lightly, when I left the albergue this morning at just after 07:00. It rained to some extent for pretty … Continue reading

Stage 33 – Santiago de Compostella to Piaxe (A Pena) 30.6 km

Who wasn’t paying attention and thought the camino and blog posts had finished? There are still another four or five instalments to come as I walk on to Finisterre so please keep reading. Early this morning Marilyn and I said … Continue reading

Stage 31 – Sobrado dos Monxes to O Pedrouzo, 39.4 km

This might not be a very long post as I am rather weary after my log hike in the hot sun. Today I planned to take another variant to the main camino. I had rough instructions that someone had kindly … Continue reading

Stage 30 – Friol to Sobrado dos Monxes, 27 km

Last evening we met up with a couple of women (Dutch and German) and ate with them at a rather nice restaurant near the church (can’t remember the name), 13 euros for a menu. Rather expensive but also rather nice. … Continue reading

Stage 29 – Lugo to Friol, 27.8 km

Today was shakeup day. Diverging from my plan. Separating from my spreadsheet. I am not looking forward to joining with the Camino Frances and its hordes of pilgrims, many of whom will only be walking the last hundred km and … Continue reading

Stage 28 – Castroverde to Lugo, 22 km

On how quickly things change! When I looked out of the window this morning I could see a perfect crescent of moon and a lone twinkling star in the dark sky. In the clear sky. It was the first time … Continue reading

Stage 26 – Castro to A Fonsagrada, 21.1 km

Well, that was short and sweet! I worked out my stages for this camino a couple of months ago now and I am sure I applied good sense and logic, but I can’t remember what any of it was now. … Continue reading

Stage 25 – Berducedo to Castro, 27.1 km

Yesterday afternoon some locals seemed to take delight in telling us that there would be storms today, and their prophecy of doom was supported by the weather forecast. It was indeed raining when we left this morning, but not heavily, … Continue reading

Stage 23 – Bodenaya to Campiello, 25.9 km

Last evening the albergue in Bodenaya lived up to its glowing reputation. There were many pilgrims resident that I had met over the last couple of days and the atmosphere was jolly. Hospitalero David was kindness personified and provided everything … Continue reading

Stage 21 – Oviedo to San Juan de Villapañada, 31.7 km

The walk out of Oviedo wasn’t too long or at all industrial and along the way we bumped into Dave who we hadn’t seen since around day 4. If you want breakfast, don’t leave it too late when exiting the … Continue reading
