The return of an errant blogger…

What a bad blogger I have been…five months without a post. I have suffered a serious bout of bloggers block. But I can’t ignore my partner’s nagging any longer – he says that “I owe it to my followers” to … Continue reading

A word in your ear…

OK guys, you haven’t heard the last of me just yet. I have a favour to ask – in fact I have two, but I will save the second one for another post. So here’s today’s favour… I know that … Continue reading

Journey’s end

And so I have really come to the end of this journey. There have been so many highlights, so many people I will remember and not very many that I want to forget. Firstly there was George – we spent … Continue reading

…..and then there was one

Well, that very odd feeling of being alone in a bustling city is here again. Very strange after being in the company of new but much appreciated friends for so long. Yesterday morning (Saturday) Olivier and I stowed our backpacks … Continue reading

Sorry folks for the delay of my post for my final stage. I spent my blogging time soaking up the sun on the beach…it seemed the right thing to do. I left the bustling albergue yesterday well before 07:00 and … Continue reading

Camino Mozárabe (Camino Fisterra) – day 51 – Negreira to Olveiroa 35.5 km

I met two English speaking women on arrival yesterday, one from the U.S. And one from Australia. It was nice to speak to them, but it transpired this morning that they are light shiners and bag rustlers, the scourge of … Continue reading

Life was just too exciting yesterday to spend my precious time waiting in line at the pilgrims’ office for my Compostela. So here I am at 07:40 waiting for the office to open at 08:00 so that I can pick … Continue reading

Camino Mozárabe (Camino Sanabrés) – day 49 – Outeiro to Santiago de Compostela 17.7 km

As mentioned in yesterday’s post Paul and I decided to take a walk to see if there was actually a village here or just a few houses. I saw a large building in the distance that could have been a … Continue reading

Camino Mozárabe (Camino Sanabrés) – day 48 – Silleda to Outeiro 25.7 km

I have to recommend last night’s private albergue. The service to price ratio was excellent and the menu del dia was good value. It was such a treat to sleep in a single storey bed, with no snorers or light-shiners … Continue reading

Camino Mozárabe (Camino Sanabrés) – day 47 – Castro Dozón to Silleda 29 km

Another chilly start to the day with all layers donned, but fairly soon I was peeling off the sock-gloves and the buff hat. The jacket took a little longer because there was a lot of walking in the shade, but … Continue reading

Camino Mozárabe (Camino Sanabrés) – day 46 – Cea to Castro Dozón 16 kmo

Well, that hardly seemed worth the bother! There are two routes that run between Cea and Castro Dozón. We four had decided to take the longer route via Oseira Monastery which is apparently worth the extra kms for the views. … Continue reading

Camino Mozárabe (Camino Sanabrés) – day 45 – Ourense to Cea 22.5 km

I was late setting off this morning and then stopped for a hot drink – Paul’s laid-back influence. The journey out of the city was not as bad as the approach, but we were on the road for around 15 … Continue reading

Camino Mozárabe (Camino Sanabrés) – day 44 – Xunqueira de Ambia to Ourense 23.5 km

Sorry about the absence of this post yesterday, we ate at a bar without wifi last night, so I missed my opportunity to publish…… Not much of a post today. I wasn’t inspired to take many photos en route. I … Continue reading

Camino Mozárabe (Camino Sanabrés) – day 43 – Laza to Xunqueira de Ambia 35 km

Contrary to the weather forecast, when I left the albergue this morning there was no hint of wind, although it was cold – 6 degrees centigrade I am told. I was well wrapped up and set off along the road … Continue reading

Camino Mozárabe (Camino Sanabrés) – day 42 – La Gudiña to Laza 36 km

A very strong wind picked up last evening which was howling all night and was still raging this morning. I wrapped up with fleece sleeves under my raincoat, my buff head band over my ears, and my sock gloves keeping … Continue reading
