    Ik heb weer een plekje in de tuin van een Albergue gevonden! En wat een aardige eigenaar. Hij vertelde dat zijn opa en oma vroeger altijd pelgrims in huis namen en dat hij daarom een Albergue is gestart. Hij vertelde prachtige verhalen over pelgrims waar hij vroeger als kind mee heeft gespeeld, maar ook over hoe stil het dit jaar op de route is.
    Ik ga lekker douchen en even wat wassen! Nog maar twee nachtjes in m'n tent 😱

    Roman bridge, casa of delights

    April 30, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 13 °C

    A long 28km slog from Lugo to Ferreira. Lovely, but long. I was going to stay at San Román, but the albergue there convinced me I could do the extra 8km. I can cope with simple, but not dirt. My feet did pay the price, although nothing that a few painkillers and some red wine could not fix! I stayed at a simply lovely renovated old stone house, beside the old Roman bridge at Ferreira. A very superior B&B - lovely people, good food, and a comfortable private room.Read more

    I know which place you are talking about in San Roman and totally agree! As it was holiday cafés were not open in Lugo when I left and was so hoping for coffee there. Walked in, yelled a few times but no one appeared. Took advantage to use the WC. Definitely not clean. Glad you had a nice stay at the B&B but the private albergue next door (Albergue Ponte Ferreira) is run by my Dutch friends Ton and Ria. Lovely house, communal dinner and breakfast. Next time 😉

    Jill Hill

    Yes, Lee, my three friends from the way went there and liked it so much they stayed an extra night.

    Good to hear! I'll pass that on😉

    Day 5 and still smiling (mostly)

    September 12, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    1. So many beautiful hydrangeas along the way! My favorite!!!
    2 the best Spanish omelet! After having walked 8 miles!
    3. Anita with some of our group! We really have met so many wonderful people on this trip. Our group is amazing
    4. As I type I am lying flat on the bed with my freshly showered feet up on the wall to help prevent swelling. 😁
    So far we are more than 30 miles into our way and I am loving it. Walking and talking and the talking makes the walking go quite fast! I must say that today was mostly uphill. Kind of a gentle incline for half of it and climbing for the other half. Have I mentioned to you all that there's two 80 + year olds with us? They are simply amazing and are rocking this walk! At the end of each segment,I was very happy to see our van waiting at different checkpoints so that I could grab another bottle of water or a quick snack.and as you can see from some of the pictures we've had the most amazing weather. Today was the warmest.
    after we all finished up walking, we went directly to an artesian cheese making class. It was a lot of fun. But I won't show you my cheese because it just looks like a little white blob.!

    Day 2 - Portomarin to Palas De Rei

    April 9, 2019 in Spain ⋅ 🌧 9 °C

    We set off from our lovely garden hotel bungalow called Casa de Maestro just as it was getting light. We walked for 24.8km to the next town on the Camino Walk. We stopped only for giant sandwiches, Galician Pie (a traditional pasty style pie filled with whatever the cook has spare) and wine. Arrived at our hotel 7.5 hours later feeling quanked (obsolete word of the day according to Google). The Casa Benilde hosts have been amazing; taking our wet clothes to dry and setting up the room so it was really cosy. Now off to find more wine, even if we have to crawl 😉Read more

    Heather Palmer

    Wow!! Thats brilliant - well done girls !! Xxx

    Vera and Tom

    Good work! feeling quanky just reading about it, and I want a galician pie.

    Sue Cantelow

    Day 3 - Palas De Rei to Melide

    April 10, 2019 in Spain ⋅ 🌫 10 °C

    Arrived in Melide after walking 14.5km, only stopping for a Nesquick and a quick loo break. We felt a bit lazy (!) after having walked 45+ kilometres over the past two days, but it was nice to have a cup of tea and a bath to rest our legs. We made a trip up to the old town in the early evening. We were especially happy to be given free tapas with our wine and catch a rare glimpse of the sun after another day of rain.Read more

    Glad you getting free food to go with the wine 😂😂 !! Lizzie lou xxx

    Palas de Rei - July 23

    July 23, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    July 23

    We walked a bit over 15 miles today, so we now have 43.6 miles to go.

    We wanted to get an earlier start this morning because we knew we had a lot of climbing today and it was going to get hot later. Morning is not my most favorite time of day, and 5:30 am is really not my thing. But, we did finally get going in the dark with headlamps. Sunrise is not until after 7:00 here.

    Both Alan and I do well climbing up and over the hills in the morning in the cool air when our legs and bodies are fresh. But, as the hours add up and the day goes on, we slow down...sometimes a lot. Today was one of those days. Everything on my body felt great, except my sore groin muscle bothered me more as the day wore on. Alan’s back was also bothering him, I was semi-limping, and then some grumpiness set in which meant walking at a distance from each other was the best thing to do by the end of the day 😂😂.

    The first thing we did when we got to Palas de Rei was go to the farmacia to get some ibuprofen. We had run out a couple of days ago. Then...stop at the supermercado to get something cold to drink and a few snacks, check in to our room, shower, wash clothes, eat some snacks, take ibuprofen, rest, eat lunch, visit with friends, rest again, then finally meet our friends for dinner. This routine is pretty much what we do each day after we are done hiking. It’s a rough life 😂😂.

    Tonight’s dinner was the last dinner with Paul and Mirabelle until we see them in Santiago. It was a really nice dinner...special time.They will go further than Paku and us tomorrow. They said they will greet us when we arrive in Santiago 💕🙂. We had the waiter take a picture of the 5 of us to commemorate the moment.

    It is so neat you have friends to meet up with along the way. Trying to figure out what massage place to it card for you. Finally used one Nick and Heather gave me. It felt soo good. Be nice to get one in Santiago before long flight.


    Love Al’s beard Becky

    A straight forward 22 km walk today. We ended up at the albergue Casa Domingo, which I was at in 2013. Was a bit disappointed that my old manger bed was not there anymore. The have a great communal meal here at night.

    Only 62 more kilometers to Santiago. We don’t want to arrive until Monday, as this weekend is the Spanish national holiday. Santiago would be a real zoo then.

    Anyway a few pics.

    Twenty second stop - Palas de Rei

    May 23, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    Portomarín -> 24km -> Palas de Rei
    Well, this place teaches us the reality of the term "Don't judge a book by its cover". There is no palace and there is no King (there is nothing here, really), however, today's misty weather made for a mystical walk along Galicia. And we had pulpo a la Gallega with a nice caña de Estrella Galicia!Read more
