    Day 31: WE DID IT

    September 4, 2016 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    780km later, and we've finally made it to Santiago de Compostela. We got our pilgrims certificate and saw the 'botafumeiro' (incense burner) swing in the cathedral. Now relaxing in our fancy hotel room with a well-earned glass of wine 🍷Read more

    Day 28: Vilachá - Palais do Rei

    September 1, 2016 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    Arriving into Palais do Rei we bumped into 2 people that we hadn't seen since the first day. Had a great dinner with them and another French guy. We cooked our own steak on a hot plate, definitely the best meal we've had the whole way. A long day ahead tomorrow.Read more

    Day 27: Sarria - Vilachá

    August 31, 2016 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Although all of the maps, signposts, apps, and online info seem to disagree with one another, we're pretty sure there's less than 100km to santiago (Relieved when I remembered the Spanish use commas instead of points in their numbers, that's 100.00km, not 100,000km!). Celebratory ice creams marked the milestoneRead more

    Day 26: Fonfría - Siarra

    August 30, 2016 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    When your map tells you it's only 500m to your hostel but it's actually 2.5km, it's always going to feel like a long day. Sunstroke set in for me last night so today was a struggle, but made it nonetheless!Read more

    Day 24: Cacabelos - Trabadelo

    August 28, 2016 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Mum wasn't feeling well today so a slow plod brought us to Trabadelo. These little towns are all starting to look very similar... Forest fires breaking out in the hills, hopefully they'll be far away from us tomorrow as we go over O Cebreiro, our last big hill before a final few flat stretches to Santiago.Read more
