    Caminha

    July 26, 2018 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Unser letzter Stopp in Portugal ist in einem kleinen Dorf kurz vor den spanischen Grenze - Caminha.
    Wir haben Plakate gesehen, dass hier ein Mittelalter Fest statt findet. Als wir ankamen hatten leider viele Stände noch geschlossen. Es war aber trotzdem nett drüber zu schlendern. Wir haben eine sehr leckeres Brot gegessen, in dem Schinken, Salami und Käse schon eingebacken waren. Der Teig war eher süßlich, was hier in Portugal öfter der Fall ist. Bei diesem Gebäck hat es gut geschmeckt, sonst sind wir aber keine Fans davon.Read more

    Caminha

    July 18, 2018 in Portugal ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Heute nur mal ein paar Eindrücke...

    Es ging von Viana do Castelo nach Caminha...25 km teils zu Fuß, teils mit dem Zug...ich war immer noch etwas beeinträchtigt nach den Anstrengungen der letzten Tage..aber mir geht's langsam besser .

    Morgen geht's wieder normal weiter... 6Uhr Richtung Valença...weg vom Meer. Schnief...an für die portugiesisch/spanische Grenze....

    Übrigens: hier wird als Zweitsprache nicht etwa spanisch oder englisch gesprochen ..Nein.. wohin man geht und steht seit 3 Tagen..französisch...

    Bis morgen ihr Lieben 😘😘😘

    Day 4 of Camino de Santiago

    September 5, 2018 in Portugal ⋅ 🌙 21 °C

    Wow it's 8:30am - I slept for 11.5 hours. I guess my body needed it! I start my day when the funicular brings me down at 9:00am (nope - not going down those stairs). It's beautiful the sun is out and the weather is perfect! I had breakfast with the couples from France (the ones wearing a QC poncho on day 2) who were in the kitchen before me. They gave me suggestions as to where to go in Europe after this trip. They were all talking over each other one with a better suggestion than the next - I left there more confused than before about where I should go. 🤔

    My day was wonderful. Despite walking another 30km. These distances are brutal and much more than I expected! My feet now have 5 blisters- I have no idea what I'm doing wrong to get so many blisters. I went to the pharmacy to buy compounds to wear tomorrow. Anyway- At the start of my walk this morning I ended up meeting this couple - he from Portugual, she from Spain. They were absolutely delightful and so so sweet. We walked together all day. I practiced my Spanish, she practiced her English and her boyfriend was the translator. It was quite comical. Along the way we kept meeting the gay couple (who's totally not gay btw) and their friend. They are 3 friends doing the camino together and are all in their 70s. Two of them have done the camino 26 times!!! That's insane.

    Anyway. 30km later and I had arrived at my stop for the night. The sweet couple were crossing over to Spain as they're doing this camino in compressed time. Wow. They are in shape! We exchanged numbers and they told me to call them if ever I needed help or anything along the way. I truly hope I cross them again. Its strange how you just click with some people sometimes.

    I found a hotel as there were no hostels or alot of choices. It was crazy expensive but as soon as the front desk mentioned pool and spa I was sold. The pool felt oh so good on my feet and entire legs. The spa was perfect to detox. My room has a theme: "videogame".😒 Couldn't I get a room with a different theme... Say wine? Puppies? Shopping? Nope. Videogames. I do feel like I'm in a videogame with these walls.

    The gay couple who are not gay (for the rest of my blog I shall refer to them as the Spanish men - since I am sure we will cross paths just about every day). So the Spanish men told me I could not leave Portugal without having "Baclahau'". So. Since I cross over to Spain in the morning I knew it was my last night to have this. What a bummer that I hadn't discovered this before!!! It's AMAZING 😍😍😍. I know we have salted cod in Canada. I must learn to make this recipe.

    Almost 120km done so far. Almost half way! Spain - here I come! Portugal - it's been an adventure!

    P.s. I've decided to abandon my birkenstocks here. They really stink and are heavy. They've been replaced with 2Euro Brazil flip flops.
