Day 4 at the CaminoAugust 31, 2019 in Spain ⋅ 🌙 21 °C
Same procedure as every day. Alarm clock at 6.30h, but I woke up at 5.15h as at that time the first pilgrims get up. We are now already in the 100km radius of Santiago and there are more pilgrims. You even find more improvised "shop", selling coffee, fruits and souvenirs out of their car.
We decided to go the "camino espiritual", which takes 1 or 2 days longer than the normal route, but is less crowded. After the forth day, you already feel the 120km in your bones and feet and it is almost the general topic of the pilgrims who has which injuries or "damages".
We stay at a small, pittoresque fishing village.
Interesting route: the yellow arrows of the Camino wanted to guide us through the water. Later we found out, that at the right time the water has gone because of the tide.
The "youth" is buying drinks at the supermarket to get prepared for Saturday evening.Read more
