    Day 6 - Arca to Santiago de Compostela

    April 13, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    We met up with Tom and Vera for coffee before setting off for the last leg of the walk. We passed through forests of eucalyptus trees and climbed to the highest point so far. We passed the sign for Santiago at about 5pm and staggered into the old town about 45 minutes later. Celebrating the completion of our mission with a glass of wine and a hot shower!Read more

    Camino Del Norte - Day 27

    Camno Del Norte - Day 27

    Biomorto to O Pedrouzo
    Distance 25km (6.0 hours)
    Ascent 120m

    Our night in Biomorto Albergue was fantastic. While we were waiting for the hospilardo to arrive, Brock was busy putting his healing hands to work. He worked magic on my back at a personal cost to his back.
    Once registered, everyone settled down for the night at 9pm. We were all up for 5.15am to set off on our 25km to join the Camino France's.
    It was a pleasant morning. We found that the new route would take us directly into Santiago. This wasn't our plan as we wanted to stop in an Albergue and walk into Santiago tomorrow morning.
    We stopped and waited for our little group of peregrinos from Canada and France to catch up with us. We then went cross country to join the Camino Frances.
    It was a shock joining the Frances. It was crowded with tourists and cyclists. I could feel my tension rising. After the solitude of the Camino Del Norte, I found the number of pilgrims overwhelming. We saw a newspaper clipping saying that more than 1,000 compostela son are issued each day.
    My tension was relieved by a peregrinos racing past with a sign saying 'unless you started in JPdP you are a tourist.' I said to him 'what about those who started in Irun? To which he agreed. I told him that I could feel the love. Each person walk their Camino based on their ability and time, it is a little harsh yo judge them by saying you've not walked from X or Y. That is not the Camino spirit.
    We walked along chatting amongst our little group and enjoying each other's company. We arrived in O Pedrouzo around 12.30pm and checked into a lovely private Albergue.
    I plan to get up very early with the others and walk the last 20kms into Santiago. It will be lovely to finish with this little international band.

    O Pedrouzo

    April 6, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    Auf Sonne folgt Regen... der Tag heute war eine Herausforderung, da es am Stück mal stark, mal stärker regnete. Wieder waren die Wege häufiger eher Flüsse und heute haben es meine Schuhe zum ersten Mal nicht gepackt und auch die Füße wurden nass.

    Der Eukalyptus Wald, den man durchquert ist dennoch beeindruckend.

    Trotz des Wetters trifft man niemanden mit schlechter Laune. Alle Pilger lachen und rufen sich “Buen Camino” umso lauter zu! Und niemand rümpft in der Unterkunft die Nase, wenn man tropfend und voller Matsch rein kommt. Stattdessen wird man gefragt, ob die Kleidung gewaschen werden soll und dass man mich gerne bei dem Regen mit dem Auto in den Ort fährt, wenn ich ihn sehen will.

    Distanz: 20.02 km

    15 June Arzua to Salceda

    June 15, 2018 in Spain ⋅ 16 °C

    Stretched out the very good included breakfast (complete with scrambled eggs) to leave late as it was only a short walking day. Met Linda and Michael from Washington DC who were well equipped Christians who had walked from SJPDP. The sun was gone so the forest, hills and little cafe bars didn't look quite as appealing today. The Pension Alborada was very comfortable for an easy afternoon but as it was reasonably isolated there was only one real place for dinner. Surprisingly it was a good and simple place which enabled me to have a decent dinner and then a good nights rest.Read more
