    • Day 28


      June 3, 2022 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

      Today we arrived in Lugo. We are now officially only 100km away from our destination Santiago de Compostela. It's a big milestone for us. Probably in 4 days we will arrive there. Much earlier than expected and anticipated. All is well, we love what we do. Most likely this won't be our last Camino.Read more

    • Day 9

      Day 25 O Cadavo to Lugo 529.7 km

      October 17 in Spain ⋅ 🌬 21 °C

      This was a very long stage but very scenic.

      There was only one bar to get food and drinks so it was a challenge mentally as well as physically.

      The weather was pretty good. It did not rain. It was 17 C so very warm. There were huge wind gusts that came out of nowhere it seems.

      Lugo is the Capital and very beautiful. The Cathedral is magnificent. But I only took a picture as it was pouring rain. There is a medieval wall built around a section of the city centre.

    • Day 8

      Day 24 Fonsagrada to O Cadavo 497.7km

      October 16 in Spain ⋅ 🌧 18 °C

      Left after breakfast of Japanese noodles. Very easy to find the way except at one point when a man walking his two retrievers stopped to direct me.

      Beautiful sunrise. It threatened rain but only sprinkled.

      Basically the Primitivo is climbing up a mountain and then back down over and over again😉

      Feeling a bit tired. "Delayed Onset Fatigue" for sure.

    • Day 42


      October 23, 2022 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

      Pick the authentic Camino messenger?

      You meet a doctor who listens to your injuries and pains and says " That shouldn't cause permanent damage. You can probably push through that. Disclaimer - I'm not a foot specialist."

      You get the following text from one of your Camino family. "I've found a bus that stops 4km from O'Cebriero. My host in Villafranca says there's a bus along the whole Camino after O'Cebriero so no more expensive taxis"

      Within the same hour you get the following text from another one of your Camino family
      "I’m half way through to O’Cerebro. It's brutal. If you could bypass this mountain, I highly recommend you take the bus. The weather is for ducks."

      A black cat in a Templar Knight's hovel insists you stay an extra day and that it is unsafe to go near any mountains.

      Clouds float past in the shape of a resort in San Sebastian with free foot massages and a swim up bar. A Templar Knights awaits to transport you through a portal back to summer.

      Ok the first three were authentic, the last two may be the result of the margarita I had with dinner.

      The Next Morning...

      I caught another bus, this time to Lugo which is not on the Camino Frances.. I have made it to Galacia, the last province on the Camino. It is beautiful here apart from and because of the endless rain. Autumn is in full swing and everything is green and gold and red. Rain is forecast every day for the next two weeks. The buses passed by beautiful mountains covered in beech forests but seen through the sideways rain squalls I was happy to be on the inside.

      I have skipped ahead again. My Camino journey is morphing naturally into just Nic's journey. I am keen to explore the beauty of Galacia more so than the trails of the Camino. I am keen to experience the Spainish culture more so than the pilgrimage culture. I feel my days on the Camino are coming to an end but that I am finding the freedom to explore without any preset expectation except those core goals which have always been just to move, to go slow and simple, to continue learning and to live in the moment.

      I sit in a bar in Spain, where drinking alcohol seems a prerequisite to being fed, waiting for my accommodation to open. After siesta there is more than 2km of original Roman wall, still completely intact, in which to circle the old city and stroll away the afternoon. If this is not the definition of slow and timeless, I am lost.

      Tomorrow I am meeting a friend at the beginning of the last stage of the Camino Frances. I may then walk a couple of days in the rain to experience the villages of Galacia. Who knows, maybe the sun will shine for a while.

      Last night in Lugo

      June 11, 2022 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

      Well last night was fun it made me think of Abby a bit - it had the feel of a big gray party with the whole town in on it.

      I got to go dancing and even went to a Latin night club and had a few dances which was nice but also felt sad as I missed my playmate :-(Read more

    • Day 12

      På værksted.

      August 30 in Spain ⋅ ☁️ 20 °C

      Da jeg skulle finde vores spot i dag, endte jeg voldsomt langt oppe i bjergene, på ret små veje. Det var 12 grader udenfor, så jeg ville sætte varme på. Men aircondition fortsatte med at køle, ser ud til den er stået af. Så nu sidder vi hos Mercedes i Lugo, det er spændende og sjovt, ingen kan et ord andet end på spansk. Men ved hjælp af fakter og SayHi er det lykkedes os at få hjælp😂. Til gengæld har jeg aldrig oplevet så omhyggelig indpakning af bilen, inden de kørte den ind på værksted. Selv rattet blev pakket ind i folie🇪🇸. Nu må vi se hvad dagen bringer, vi er egentlig ligeglade, da vi tager en dag af gangen.Read more

    • Day 21

      Past the wall

      September 25, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

      Today's KM's - 29.9kms
      Total KM's - 462.8kms
      Total blisters - 8

      A leisurely stroll today to Lugo. Mostly walking through gently rolling hills and forests. The day started in the dark and with thick fog until about 9:00. Only a little bit of road walking, to keep us on our toes, as logging trucks thundered by. The main achievement today occurred as we passed under the walls of Lugo and now have less than 100kms to go to Santiago.

      Lugo seems to be a relaxed place, with lots of bars and restaurants. The most impressive feature though is the Roman wall which circles the whole part of the old centre. The wall is 7m's wide, had 85 towers and 10 gates. With the way in and out of Lugo for pilgrims through 2 of those gates.

      We have some time to explore Lugo as we wait for the crazy Spanish dinner time of at least 7:30 (most don't open till 9pm). This doesn't really suit pilgrims who have been walking since 7am and are sleep deprived due to sleeping with snoring strangers. Special treat tonight though, our bunk beds are deluxe and include a privacy blind. Too bad they won't block out the snorers 😴

      Wandern an der Küste & Schlafen in Lugo

      April 21, 2022 in Spain ⋅ ☁️ 12 °C

      Vormittags gab es eine kleine Wanderung entlang der Klippen an denen wir übernachtet haben. Weiter gibts zum Strand der Kathedralen, eine zwar etwas überlaufener aber bei Ebbe eindrucksvolle, ausgewaschene Küstenlandschaft.
      Nach einer ausgiebigen Dusche an einer Raststätte sind wir in die Stadt Lugo gefahren. Eigentlich wollten wir abends um die Häuser ziehen, haben uns aber mit unseren Kölner Freunden Stefan & Toni (mit Kater Tigges 🐈) verquatscht und sind kurzerhand im Bus geblieben. Lili hat endlich eine riesige Artischocke bekommen und Flo durfte Pizza und Lasagne bestellen. Nach einer Folge Germanys next Topmodel kam Mama Eva mit ihrer Ukulelengruppe noch im BR und wir konnten live zuschauen - ein hoch auf die Technik und unseren VPN-Zugang 😅

      Køreklar igen

      August 30 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

      Så er vi køreklar igen og Aircondition er repareret. Er glad for jeg har tegnet service kontrakt complete på bilen, vi blev lige skubbet foran i køen🙏🏻. Om vi skulle have ventet til i morgen havde ikke gjort noget.Read more

    • Day 61

      On the road again (well the bus today(

      June 11, 2022 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

      So feeling better and am sitting in Estacion Autobus de Lugo to catch a bus to Santiago.

      I'm thinking one night in Santiago then maybe a service tomorrow and a sorry walk on the road again and do Finisterre this week which will get me there and back for Friday before flying to Sophia on Sunday via Lugo.Read more
