    Now a few photos from today

    October 19, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Just back from the bar and a glass of Alberiño - so relaxed here, and they keep giving little tapas offerings with a drink! Hope I will be hungry for dinner, as the smells here are wonderful! A Canadian couple (more Canadians!) may join us for dinner tonight. We met them on the first day of this section, and they are staying just up the road...they were at our place last night so we have become quite friendly.Read more

    Negreira to Oliveira

    September 24, 2016 in Spain

    Walked about 21 miles today. It was cool, so nice walking, but a bit windy in the afternoon. Fortunately the wind was pushing us forward, not backward. I'm fighting a little bit of a cold, so I got a private room again to keep from spreading my germs, and it's also so nice to be able to sleep in past 5:30 and have my own bathroom.
    I was also able to have a nice nap before dinner with a few friends.

    Humbled ...

    October 9, 2017 in Spain

    It never fails.

    Just when Coleen and I are patting ourselves on the back for our Camino efforts we meet someone else who wows us. Over a peregrino supper tonight we met a Belgian man who turns 67 years old this Saturday. Jean-Pierre left his home in Belgium 5 1/2 months ago and has been walking each day since on Camino trails in Belgium, France and Spain. Remarkable.

    Last night we met a man and a woman who have been walking from Paris with their dog and a donkey for months on the Camino.

    Like caffeine the Camino is highly addictive -- but harder on the feet!

    On the way to the ocean!

    July 16, 2015 in Spain

    We will arrive at Muxio, a small ocean town, tomorrow. Another nice day walking with and eating with new friends. This part of the walk is a great way to end the walking part of our journey. It is more akin to the early section of the trail in that it is much more rural and there are less people. Today we have had long stretches of the trail in the woods. It is very beautiful.Read more

    Santa Mariña

    August 10, 2017 in Spain

    Nice walk between Negreira and Santa Mariña. Galicia is very nice, and I've been enjoying wonderful weather. I'm stretching out the walk to Finesterre by walking to Muxia first.

    Another idyllic walk in Galicia

    October 18, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    We are not exactly sure where we are! But we have had another peaceful day walking through the countryside...quite long - longer than the predicted 18, we walked 24 kms - and we were instructed to walk till we got to a particular bar, then to call for a ride to our accommodation (like we did in Arzúa). Anyway, eventually we got to the bar Victoriano, had a beer and Amr charmed the woman there to make the call for us - no problem - and in 10 minutes a Mercedes pulled in and drove us ? 9 kms out into the country to this very charming casa rural. We have a lovely room (double bed, but one long pillow!) with a little enclosed and sunny balcony - where yesterday’s wet washing is drying - and a lovely outlook. And a very complicated shower, looked like dashboard of a jet!!

    Again we were lucky with weather - the rain at night had stopped by morning, and we had a cool walk, sunny with scudding clouds. And through more lovely forests, farms and villages. I think our current area is As Maronas, or Santa Mariña, but they are very small rural villages. Our bags again miraculously here, all is good. We think this beautiful walk to Finisterre is a carefully guarded secret - we knew about it, but had no idea it would be so lovely. And I guess that after walking the more than 700 kms from Pamplona to Santiago, our legs can manage to keep walking anywhere! But we are always happy to arrive at our destination each day I have to admit!

    I have a feeling this is not strong wifi, so if no photos appear that’s why!

    An easy walk to Olveiroa

    October 19, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Only 14 kms today, and we are staying in a pension in a small village with the typical Galician stone houses, and the corn storage buildings - here also in stone. This is such an idyllic 5 day walk to Finisterre, and a perfect wind down after the hype of finishing in Santiago.

    We started walking leisurely at about 9.30, after being driven back to the Camino by our host. They were so warm and friendly, farewelled us with hugs and kisses, and it was a great dinner last night. Today has the same ambience, warm and welcoming, though this place is right on the Camino so more activity - locals in the bar etc! But again a beautiful stone building and peaceful and comfortable. No wonder I couldn’t find these places we are staying in on the map before we left home...they are much too small and insignificant for google maps!

    But there is a lot going on. We pass many many dairy farms, and many corn fields, and the other thing round here is timber. Some timber mills, and yesterday we heard chainsaws. And there are many plantations of eucalyptus and pine trees. Also we left under cloud cover, though forecasts were for no rain, and it was sort of mystical and misty in the distance when we first started off. But this cleared and it is now mostly blue and sunny. And we saw water in the distance, our host told us while driving that this was part of the water inlets that come in from the Atlantic, so we are getting there! In fact we are only 36 kms from Finisterre!! Tomorrow we walk about 20 kms to Cee, and on Sunday we have a shorter walk to Finisterre where we stay for 2 nights.
