    Day 71 & 72: Castroverde - Lugo

    October 24, 2016 in Spain

    Distance: 22.5 (1768.3/99.8)
    Weather: 16C, some sun bit chilly!
    Mood: A but mixed
    Staying at: Lucus Hostal

    Today, I'm not a pilgrim but a tourist in the capital of Galcia, Lugo. I've become so good at being a pilgrim that I nearly forgot how lousy I am at being a solo tourist. I'm feeling a little lost and out of place amongst all these people who are just going about their day. I ask about a route variation in the camino interpretation centre, but am turned away as it's not the real camino and therefore not part of their scope...
    The students at the table next to me are quizzing each other on German words and grammar. It makes me smile. I just read an article on how repetition is far from the most effective way to learn, but this may not be the time to tell them.
    Feeling out of place here makes me question what is my place in this world and it makes me miss my loved ones. I'm a doer, a problem solver, not a quiet observer and I feel such a strong need to add some value to this world again.
    I stumble upon a fellow pilgrim asks me for help on deciding what to do the next days. I use the knowledge I gained on route variations, onward walks and busses from Santiago and I leave him satisfied with a number of alternatives to choose from. And I... am happy again cause I was able to add some value.
    The day ends with a reunion with another peregrina. We share food, a glass of red wine and stories about love, work, travel and life after the camino. We agree that the tougher days like today and at times being uneasy is good for reflection and learning. It's these days that make us grow.

    Lugo - San Frolain festival

    October 8, 2016 in Spain

    Lugo certainly knows how to party! We had a great night wandering around the city. We're just waking up now and people are still out on the streets.

    We've a choice of routes today. Not sure yet what we'll do.

    Lugo

    October 7, 2016 in Spain

    Just arrived in Lugo after a 30km walk from O Cadavo. It was long, but not particularly difficult and mostly on country roads or dirt tracks.

    I was expecting a long hard slog into the city, but it was actually quite a pleasant entry.

    Looking forward to a hot shower before exploring. Lugo seems to be a lovely city.

    Lugo

    August 30, 2017 in Spain

    First things to note is that Ady has completed Tsuguru swim, in Japan, congratulations to him and suppose crew on job well done.

    So this is Lugo 78km from Ribadeo per guidebook book but for some reason it took the bus 2.5hours to get here, the Roman wall, Unesco listed, around the old town is complete and measures 2. 5km. Inside the walls are both old and new buildings one of the old is the Church of St Maria photo 1+2 also Unesco mentioned and seems to consist of lots of little chapels/shrines on edge photo3 and shiney main section Photo4. Walls photo5 and roof top with very dodgy looking slates photo. None of it looks great as it has been raining all day. We are now a bit damp, well my feet are soaked restaurants of me is damp so a nice hot chocolate to kill some time till bus back. You can almost make out John in photo 2as he heads into Church as he is wearing sailing Jacket with luminous yellow hood.Read more

    Lugo (ca 218,3km)

    April 9 in Spain

    Mittlerweile merkt man, dass wir das Bergland verlassen und die Wege ebener werden. Bis nach Lugo hatten wir ca. 30km zu erledigen, die wir im Schnellschritt hinter uns gelassen haben. Am Ende haben die Füsse zwar unfassbar geschmerzt, insbesondere aufgrund der Strapazen der letzten Tage, aber wir könnten es noch bis in Zentrum schaffen.

    Da haben wir uns ausnahmsweise mal ein Hotel gegönnt und hatten, da wir früh ankamen, noch die Gelegenheit, Wäsche zu waschen und überflüssiges Gepäck in die Heimat zu schicken. Der Abend wurde dann noch mit einer Room-Service Pizza abgerundet.

    Am nächsten Morgen nahmen wir uns noch ausgiebig Zeit für die beeindruckende Kathedrale in Lugo. Wie es der Zufall wollte, liefen wir auch in eine Kirchendienerin, die uns direkt durch die Kathedrale führte und uns eine Menge interessanter Fakten präsentierte. Für alles reichte es natürlich nicht, da die gesamte Kathedrale neben dem Hauptschiff aus vielen Einzelkapellen und sonstigen Reliquien besteht.

    Vor allem lernten wir viel über die Jungfrau Maria, die auch Schutzpatronin Lugos ist und der die Kathedrale geweiht wurde. Auch ist es wohl eine der wenigen Kathedralen weltweit, die das heilige Sakrament 24/7 ausstellen. Als Nicht-Katholiken wurde uns das Konzept sehr verständnisvoll erläutert und ich gebe zu, dass ich auch von der Morgenandacht, der wir beiwohnen durften, sehr beeindruckt war.

    Am Schluss erhielten wir noch das Siegel der Kathedrale als Stempel in unseren Pilgerpass und, trotz unseres protestantischen Sündentums, schenkte man uns in der Sakristei ein Heiligenbild der Jungfrau Maria, damit sie uns auf unseren Wegen beschützt. Lugo ist definitiv eine Stadt, die man wieder besuchen kann, denn von der Geschichte der Stadt, die bis ins römische Reich zurückreicht, habe ich noch gar nicht angefangen!

    D-24. Castroverde - Lugo

    October 20, 2016 in Spain

    Distance 23.3 km (609.3)
    Steps 30500 (975 385)
    Ascent/Descent 364/490

    Atkeliavau į Lugo. Nors miestas labai gražus, nuotraukos nepadariau. Nei vienos. Apskritai, vaizdai keičiasi kasdien ir tas pokytis yra toks pastovus, kad nebestebina, ir tuo pačiu skatina mėgautis akimirka, o ne stengtis ją pagauti ir "suspausti" į fotoaparatą. Kalnai baigėsi, išsitiesino ir liko tik kalvos. Eiti daug lengviau, bet akims trūksta horizonto ir erdvės. Bet turiu planą kaip tai ištaisyti :)

    Today I arrived to Lugo. It's really nice town with old guard walls and beautiful churches. Despite that I almost took no pictures. The view is changing everyday, and this change became so constant that it doesn't surprise so much anymore but leads to appreciation of the moment.
    Mountains are behind and only hills ahead of me. It's much easier to walk but I already miss wide horizons and open spaces. But I have a plan how to fix that :)
