Es regnet wie aus Kübeln! Wieso nochmal laufen wir heute am Deich?
I hope we don’t see more lightnings when we start here in Barcelona. …. Just got the information that we will at least have 90 mind of delay - 😕 maybe for a good reason
I spent the last day with Davide and partly with some of his friends in Muxia and Fisterra! Muxia is officially the religious point zero of the Camino (while Finesterre is the geographical end of the journey!)! However for me Santiago de Compostela was the final point of the way and the rest was just an add on!
We had a nice dinner to watch the sunset- although the sun was hiding behind clouds! In the night I drove back to the Airport, slept 2 h in the car and started my flight back home via Barcelona (where a mega thunderstorm shook us up)! Ready to finally get back home to my family- can’t wait!Read more
Just arrived in Finisterre after a 2 h drive! This time with a rental car! Was quite exhausted - maybe normal after all the walking! There are still some pilgrims here who have the same idea! Will drive along the coast tomorrow- maybe I will meet Davide tomorrow who chose to walk!Read more
Today another 27 Km and I am done! More than 800 km through Navarra, Castilla & Leon and Galicia - over the Pyrenees, through the Meseta and up the Leon mountains! Thank you a lot to my wife who made this happen! 😘
In front of the church my Camino friend Davide waited for me and a few pilgrims friends I met on the way joined for lunch! The mess in the Cathedral was an experience when you are not catholic! Now I go to the end of the world and can’t wait to see my family again! Miss you all! 💋Read more
This will be my last day before I will reach Santiago tomorrow! The landscape is still nice, green and you see that the whole area of Galizia is richer than Navarra or Castilia y Leon! Houses are nicer, farms modern and the weather is more like our „normal“ summer! Still a lot of pilgrim tourists on the street but really annoying are the bikers who try to do slalom around the pilgrims when shooting downhill- fullspeed! I am surprised that I don’t see more accidents!Read more
Stop in Palace de Rei after 25 km! 3.5h more to go today to escape the tourists! But the feets are aching a lot! Theae hobby pilgrims even have their own stamps to cheat. 🤦🏼
The sky was very nice this early morning - unfortunately the pictures couldn’t capture it well! So Melide today, where the specialty is grilled Pulpo (Octopus)Read more
