    Casa de Fernanda

    November 30, 2018 in Portugal ⋅ 🌙 12 °C

    Day 3 on the Camino:
    The Brazilian- French guy Augusto and I kept waking together. In the morning we went to the doctor to have our legs checked but it was very crowded, so we went to a pharmacy to buy Voltaren tape which worked miracles! When we started walking it was very foggy but it cleared up throughout the day. Our walk to casa de fernanda was a 23.5 km hike through the mountains and it was beautiful! We did stop again to go to a doctor later on and he prescribed me some cream and strong anti inflammatory pills ( hopefully those will do the trick). Walking did feel a lot better today but my legs still hurt. The albergue casa de Fernanda is beautiful- there’s plenty of veggies in the garden and lots of different animals. Don’t even get me started on the food! It was so good and senhora fernanda cooked all vegan for me :)
    After dinner I couldn’t even walk back to bed because my feet were hurting so unbelievably bad! I don’t even know if I’ll be able to sleep tonight...

    Ponte de Lima

    Day 4 on the Camino

    Today was an easy day we walked 19 km to Ponte de Lima . I was raining shortly and we always had the beautiful sight of the mountains. Ponte de Lima Isa really beautiful city (the first city in Portugal!) when we entered the town there was a little market and they even had Churros ! I only ever had those from Mexico and never in Europe.
    My feet still hurt but I haven’t cried today so I count that as a success :)

    Hundert Kilometer gelaufen

    October 6, 2018 in Portugal ⋅ 🌙 13 °C

    Heute hatten wir ein nettes Erlebnis. Wir gingen auf einer schmalen Straße durch die Weinberge als ein älterer Mann mit seinem Traktor vorbei kam. Er hielt an und lud uns ein seine Trauben zu probieren. Jetzt sind wir mitten in den Bergen mit einer atemberaubenden Aussicht. Morgen erreichen wir voraussichtlich die spanische GrenzeRead more

    Vitorino dos Piaes-Casa da Fernanda

    September 13, 2017 in Portugal

    Interesting walk today with bulls, circus tents, Stevie Wonder the dog, Jao the pig, and Fernanda our host. A friend from the Netherlands told me about Fernanda and Jacinto and their home that is open to Pilgrims. They have a room in the yard with 10 beds for Pilgrims and meals are served around their kitchen table. You must call ahead as they are full every day as the word of their hospitality has traveled far and wide. Food is all cooked by Fernanda and grown in their community garden. We met the bulls along the Camino, the circus tents were set up on an empty lot and we could hear the animals in the trucks as we passed. Fernanda has quite a few small dogs including Stevie who only has one eye and a pet pig that was wandering around the garden. I helped her coral the pig as she didn't know it was loose and it will follow Pilgrims as they pass and it will not be able to find its way home. Stevie and I are already best friends.Read more

    Ponte de Lima

    September 14, 2017 in Portugal

    Ponte de Lima is the oldest Vila in Portugal founded March 4,1125. Some cobblestones and hills today but not too bad. Started out foggy again but it warmed up after an hour or so. Made it here by 1:00pm and the albergue didn't open until 4:00pm but I didn't want to push on to the next town as it is over 17km away. (10.5 miles) I guess I will have to do laundry tomorrow as it is too late today for it to hang dry. I guess I can't complain as it is only $5 per night. 24 beds in my room tonight. Beautiful Roman Bridge here that the town is named for. Notice the picture of the exercise equipment in the park. There are quite a few parks like that in Portugal and Spain and I do see people using them sometimes.Read more

    Sleepover day 23

    August 11, 2018 in Portugal ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    Inland a little bit today. A beautiful mediaeval town. Apparently the oldest town in Portugal with a mediaeval bridge. Beautiful old buildings and church and Castle to walk along the top of the balconies in the town. Some sort of concert tonight as there is a large stage set up by the river banks.A really beautiful Old-fashioned grocery store with ladders to get to The top of the shelves. Let’s get a hat I said. And Felix did.Read more

    Wetlands walk

    June 2, 2018 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 70 °F

    So after a slightly awkward communal breakfast (but with compensatory good cake) we took a taxi out into the countryside to the wetland. We had detailed notes provided by Inntravel and a map and off we went into the forest. All went well although the notes weren't quite as good as on previous trips and so we took a wrong turning at one point. We had a picnic lunch purchased from the hotel so we knew we wouldn't starve and we soon sorted ourselves out. A good walk probably far enough for me (about 9.5km) and finished with a walk over the bridge and a stop to buy custard tarts... Back to the hotel to shower, read and recoverRead more
