    Kilometer zero at Finisterre Lighthouse

    August 14, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 57 °F

    When I was at Finisterre last year it was so cloudy and foggy that I wasn't able to see the sunset. I'm happy that I got to experience it this year. I'm also happy that I didn't have a terrible cold like I had last year! 😀

    Halfway between Muxia and Finisterre. Beautiful beach here, but the water was a little cold.

    Muxia

    August 12, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 57 °F

    Beautiful day in Muxia. There was a festival featuring pirates and bagpipes. Bagpipes in Spain might seem strange, but this corner of Spain, Galicia, has a strong Celtic heritage.
    I really enjoyed the lively atmosphere, but it meant that all rooms and hostel beds were fully booked, except the municipal albergue, which doesn't accept reservations. Fortunately, it was a nice place to stay, with fantastic views from the rooftop terrace. Not bad for 6€.Read more

    Santa Mariña

    August 10, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 59 °F

    Nice walk between Negreira and Santa Mariña. Galicia is very nice, and I've been enjoying wonderful weather. I'm stretching out the walk to Finesterre by walking to Muxia first.

    O Cebreiro to Samos

    August 1, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 64 °F

    Beautiful walk this day to Samos, which is one of the prettiest little places on the Camino. It has quite an impressive monastery, which draws tourists. It has been harder to get a place to sleep eacnight from this point on, because many Spaniards and other Europeans walk this portion of the Camino in the summer. Including many youth groups. There's one group of 105 from Andalucía.Read more
