    Pedra Furada

    September 10, 2017 in Portugal

    More narrow streets and cobblestones today. The weather has been perfect with cool evenings and mornings and very warm afternoons. A band was playing in front of this church about 8:00 this morning with 3 to 5 minutes of loud fireworks then the hurriedly got in a van and were gone. I have no idea why. I came across a facade that looked like a church but there is only vacant land behind it. Very strange. The goats and sheep were coming right down the Camino path the goats gave me a quizzical look but I made sure to stick with the sheep just incase they were being separated with the sheep on his right hand and the goats on his left.Read more

    Barcelos

    September 11, 2017 in Portugal

    Beautiful town and so many churches and a nice historic town center. The walk here was short distance but long on time. Dave is in pain from the muscles in his right leg near where he had his knee replaced a few years ago. I walked around town and visited some churches. The main church I visited was Igreja do Senhor Bom Jesus da Cruz (Good Jesus of the Cross) which has its own legend and also has a statue of the Pilgrim Virgin Mary holding baby Jesus. This is also the town that is responsible for the Roosters in every Portuguese home.Read more

    Die Magie des Caminho ☆☆☆

    May 11, 2016 in Portugal

    Heute morgen bin ich um 8 Uhr auf den Caminho und es war ein wunderbarer Tag. Landschaftlich ein Traum. Abwechslungsreiche Wälder und Felder, kleine Dörfer und am Ende noch so früh anzukommen um in einer wunderschönen neuen Herberge für 16 Personen zu übernachten. Nach einer warmen Dusche. .. fühle ich mich auf meinen Weg angekommen. ♡♡♡ in der Magie des Caminho ! Danach hab ich mir für 5 Euro ein leckeres Pilgermenü mit einem kühlen Vino Verde gegönnt. Der Abend kann kommen ;-)Read more

    Day 2 Vila do Conde to Barcelos 30km

    April 16, 2016 in Portugal

    Day 2 Vila do Conde to Barcelos 30km with a detour
    I set off at 7am just after a thunder storm had passed. It didn't bode well. The directions out of the town were poor and I got lost after an hour. By now, I can only describe the rain as monsoon season. I had my poncho on which is a bit like a walking tent. I finally found someone to put me back on the right track. I had already walked an additional 3km.
    I can best describe most of the day as wet. In fact, I thought at one stage that it would be easier to swim.
    I walked alone most of the day. I did walk with a Dutch man who was three weeks into his walk from Lisbon to Santiago. He set a fast pace. We didn't walk for long as another storm blew in. As we reached for his jacket, he found that he had dropped it somewhere in the previous hour. He turned around to locate it.
    I arrived in Barcelos in the middle of another storm. I was drenched to the skin. Instead of staying in an auberge, I booked into a hotel for a hot bath....brill 😊
    The town was in a party mood. There was a huge funfair gong on and a dance/rap competition with companies and schools competing before a panel of judges....very entertaining. The weather turned dry and a pleasant evening was spent by all. I visited a few churches today to give thanks for my beloved 15 year old niece Anna. She flew into a diabetic coma unexpectedly last week. Specialists indicated that it was the worse case they had seen in years. Anna woke up after a few days. This was a miracle and shows the power of prayer. Her recovery has been fantastic. However, there is concern whether there is any kidney damage. We continue to pray for her full recovery.
    Tomorrow is another big day to Ponte DeLima 37km away over some big hills. An early night.
