    Beyond Santiago

    July 13, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    For us, Wednesday morning was like any other day on the camino — get up early, eat a breakfast bar and a banana in our hotel room, and then hit the road towards Muxía. Only 86.482 km to go!

    This section of the walk turned out to be harder than we’d expected, partly because the temperatures rose into the 80’s (I know, that’s cool for everyone in Texas), and because of constant climbs and descents. But part of the way was still through pine and eucalyptus forests, so our 3-day walk wasn’t too bad. Some flowers, especially the hydrangeas, were just reaching their peak here in mid-July.

    Huge fields of corn here, lots of small farms and villages of only 15-20 houses. It’s very unusual to see shabby or run-down homes — though some places have long been abandoned, most are well maintained. And the local language is Gallego, which has more in common with Portuguese than Spanish.

    Camino Frances 18

    August 30, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Nach meinem Zwischenstopp in Santiago habe ich gestern meinen Weg auf dem Camino fortgesetzt, denn mein Endziel ist Finisterre.
    Also habe ich wieder die Schuhe geschnürt, meinen Rucksack geschultert und bin von Santiago über Carballa, Ventosa und Ponte Maceira (ein sehr hübsches Dorf) nach Negreira gelaufen.
    Nach einer eher schlaflosen Nacht (zwei Pilger haben sich nachts so lange gestritten bis die Polizei kam 😡) bin ich heute dann ca. 26 km bis Lago gelaufen.
    Nun sind es noch ungefähr 42 km bis Finisterre, wo ich Sonntag ankommen werde.
