      10 Grad und Nebel am Morgen

      October 3, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

      Heute Morgen sind wir in einer dicken Nebelbrühe gestartet, die sich bis 11Uhr noch hartnäckig gehalten hat. Das war irgendwie spannend, aber auch besonders kalt. Ich hätte mir ne Mütze und Handschuhe gewünscht.

      22km reichen für heute. Morgen erreichen wir die letzten 100km bis Santiago. Morgen kommen wir zu dem Ort wo alle Jakobswege zusammenfließen. Ich bin total gespannt. Positives hab ich leider noch nicht darüber gehört! 😬

      Vilalba to Baamonde

      September 13, 2022 in Spain ⋅ ☁️ 15 °C

      Another early morning, alarm goes off at 6:00 am, I call out to Lisa “you can have the bathroom first up this morning” before throwing the covers over my head, rolling over and trying to pretend I don't have to get up. I had an afternoon nap yesterday, so tossing and turning was always going to be on the agenda last night. I wait till 6:30 am before getting out of bed, I get ready and we are on the trail by 7:30 am. It is raining and the sun hasn't risen yet, there is enough moonlight that we don't need a headlamp which is rather lucky, as we both sent ours on to Santiago (trying to cut our weight down). The trail today is beautiful, the rain continues for the next 30 minutes or so, there is a breeze and the walking conditions are absolutely perfect, we have a slight up hill at the start of our walk then the rest is pretty flat, we are able to kick it up a couple of gears and even overtake some pilgrims - this never happens, we don't understand what is happening, but we just go with it! About 10 km in we come across a lovely little bar we stop for a coffee and baños break, we spend a good half hour here recharging our batteries, I meet a lovely lady from the USA as we are lined up to use the baños, her and her 2 companions have been walking the Camino del Norte since 2013 (they take 2 weeks every year, except through COVID) and walk the trail, they will make it to the end this year and will start the Camino Portugese next year. I love hearing pilgrims stories, it's so interesting and they are always different. We are off again and before we know it, it is 12:30 pm and we are walking into our destination for today ‘Baamonde’. There are so many pilgrims on the trail now and the vibe is pretty electric, we are nearing the last 100 km of our Camino and everyone is excited, also a lot of pilgrims may have just started, you need to walk the last 100 km in order to receive your compostela at the end. We make it to our accommodation which is also a lovely bar, we get settled in for the arvo, order lunch and enjoy the vibe, oh and watching the rain fall, whilst sitting inside drinking vino, life is good!Read more

      Ribadeo to Mondoñedo

      September 8, 2022 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

      We get to sleep in this morning and leisurely get ourselves ready, we were unable to book accommodation between here and Mondoñedo, which means we are catching a bus, it is scheduled to leave Ribadeo at 10:15 am. The day is overcast and drizzly, and we are not the only pilgrims on the bus, the common theme is a lack of accommodation - there just isn’t enough open this year for the number of people walking this stretch. So we board the bus, sit back and enjoy the views from the comfort of our seats. We make it into Mondoñedo by noon, and quite a few of us pilgrims disembark. The bus stop is on the edge of town, so it is a long uphill walk into the main area. It has a lovely feel to it and we have an apartment booked and will be staying here for 2 nights. Before we get to our apartment we decide to stop at a bar for some wine and tapas. We are the only pilgrims in this bar and it’s interesting listening to the banter and laughter among the locals. We then head to our accommodation, it is in a beautiful old stone building, on the second storey and it’s absolutely lovely. We unpack and head to the supermarket to stock up on supplies for some long-awaited home-cooked meals. Over the next 2 days, we explore this lovely town, including a visit to the cathedral, it is truly beautiful and I buy a Christmas bauble as a memento to hang on my tree. We also visit a hiking store, I need to buy a poncho and base layer (I sent both these items back home 🤦‍♀️), every time I have walked in Galicia it has been really cold and wet, so I am going to get these while I can. We enjoy plenty of home-cooked meals compliments of Louie and we savour these moments and also the flavours, knowing we will be eating out now until the end. This is our last rest day on this Camino, and our bodies have enjoyed the downtime, we leave here on the 10th of September feeling recharged and refreshed, ready for our next and last leg into Santiago de Compostela.Read more

      Tapia de Casariego to Ribadeo

      September 7, 2022 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

      It’s a later start to our day due to lack of shut eye last night. We get ready, head up stairs for some coffee and brekkie, then hit the trail. Tapia is a far bigger coastal town than we thought, and as we make our way through town we find a small puppy that has escaped from his owner, this little fella is going ten to the dozen and his lead is trailing behind him, we mange to take hold of the lead and then we try to locate the owner, but to no avail, we end up leaving the puppy in a locals care where we found him, and hope he will be reunited with his owner shortly. It is another beautiful walking day, we are so grateful as this is our last day on the coast, we are going off trail today and will be following the E9 all the way to Ribadeo, it is a local coastal walking trail that hugs the coastline as much a possible. This is also our last day in the region of Asturias and at the end of our walk today we will cross a bridge and enter the region of Galicia and the city of Ribadeo. We seem to have every walking surface along our path today, from bitumen roads to paved walking tracks to dirt roads and paths to boardwalks and bridges, from towns to country and city walking, wow Asturias, you have thrown everything at us for this last day and we will miss you dearly, you have been stunningly beautiful! We break frequently to enjoy the picture perfect views and to really soak this day up, it takes us close to 5pm to get to our destination today and when we do we find out that the city is in party mode. We are booked into a lovely hotel in the main square and there is a fair with rides, food trucks, 2 concert stages set up, and people everywhere! We find a lovely little restaurant for dinner and enjoy some Indian cuisine, it is absolutely beautiful and so are the owners, they spoil us and treat us so well. We then go to the fair, the vibe is electric, the music is banging and it’s so nice watching the kids on rides, laughing, giggling and jumping around with excitement and anticipation, we end the night sitting on the ground listening to the band before heading to bed. Life really doesn’t get any better. ♥️Read more

      La Caridad to Tapia de Casariego

      September 6, 2022 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

      We wake earlier this morning, get ready, then walk back up to a bar in a plaza to grab a quick bite and a coffee. We find a table outside in the sun and enjoy the morning vibes of the locals going about their business, then we set off on a beautiful walk to Tapia de Casariego. It’s a perfect walking day, around 15km in length and following the coastline, we stop at a homemade stall not too far out of La Caridad - a young girl has painted shells and made bracelets, Louie and I both buy a shell off her, then we continue on our way. Out of our 2 route options for today we have decided to stick to the coastline, we only have 2 more walking days along the coast, and want to make the most of it. The sounds of the ocean is strong and the smells of the sea air fills our nostrils, our next stop is at a small beach bar perch on top of a grassy hill, there are beautiful big shade trees to relax under, and from here we overlook the beach and way out into the ocean, we opt for ice-creams and settle in for a short break enjoying the views and watching some people swinging on a tree swing - creating social media content. We are then taken away from the coastline and are walking amongst fields and farms, a sun-shower cools us down, and goes just as quickly as it came. We continue our walk enjoying the scenery all the way into Tapia de Casariego. We pass the municipal aubergue that has prime position overlooking the ocean. Our first port of call is to find lunch, we walk into a small plaza packed full of eateries and pick one. We enjoy another local speciality dish that has been recommended by our waiter and it is delicious. Heavy rain comes out of no where and we move inside, we settle in here with wine and chats for the next couple of hours, our waiter is great and soon realises Lisa’s love of wine and brings her a 5 ltr bottle 😂. We then head to our accommodation, our room is teeny tiny, but we make it work. We are in a room above a bar and the last sounds of chatter, laughter and good times ceases at around 2am and finally we find sleep…..Read more

      La Colorada to La Caridad

      September 5, 2022 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

      We sleep in this morning, our room is so comfy it would be super easy to stay here for the next few days, but that is just a dream! We finally drag our butts out of bed and start getting ready for our day, not having a big walking day ahead of us, we can enjoy a leisurely breakfast and slowly get ourselves ready. We hit the trail just before 11am, our bodies are feeling pretty good after our time in the hydrotherapy spa yesterday, our first town is Navia and it’s only 2 Km away, we end up breaking here, Louie has an upset tummy that she needs to sort out. This is a big, bustling town, we end up here for around an hour or so, then head on. Again we are walking up and out of the town and the view is spectacular! It’s a beautiful day and we are walking in rural settings, on quite country roads. We come upon another old community washhouse from back in the 1930’s, this one is well loved and preserved. It has really started to heat up but thankfully we have made it to our destination. We find a bar eager for some lunch, we share a dish that is a local speciality - Crumbed pork with peppers and chips (it’s yummo!) We then head to our accommodation, our host is very welcoming and even gives us a bottle of red wine for our room as the bar and restaurant here are closed due to renovations. We will head back up to the same bar we ate lunch at for dinner tonight. We didn’t run into Robert from the USA on our trail today, no surprise there, we didn’t start walking till nearly lunch time! We go to bed early, resting our bodies ready for another walking day tomorrow.Read more

      Vilalba

      September 12, 2022 in Spain ⋅ ☁️ 23 °C

      I had an afternoon nanny nap after going to a bar for lunch - Lisa ordered more wine and the waiter wasn't taking NO for an answer when I said I didn't want another one, it didn't take much to twist my arm though, but I knew after having 3 I would be knocked out for the afternoon. Whilst I sleep acomatosed from all the wine, Lisa heads to the bar to write a post....I wake a couple of hours later to find a lovely note from Louie, I get ready and head down to meet her. we had both lots of French doors open when we went to bed, a lovely cool breeze blows in with a occasional rain, there is a Spanish lady singing, then the singing stops and 2 ladies start chatting until 2:00 am - I am still tossing and turning, then the lights outside go out, and instantly the chatter stops, all is quiet except for me still tossing and turning...eventually I drift off and it feel like the alarm has just waited for me to go to sleep before going off.Read more

      Abadin-Vilalba

      July 26, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

      So da meld ich mich mal wieder kurz. Die letzten zwei Etappen waren eine Mischung aus Fluchender Verzweiflung und völliger Entspannung. Auf den letzten Etappen geht es nochmal ganz schön in die Höhe .....seufz aber nicht mehr bergab 🙏🏻Ich liebe vom großen und ganzen diese Art des Pilgerns und es wird definitiv nicht der letzte Camino sein. Und eins sei noch gesagt, der Camino ist absolut anders wie jeder Weg, denn hier sind wirklich alle gleich❤️Read more

      Tag 15 kurze Nacht = kurze Strecke

      June 1, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

      Nachdem in unserer Herberge alle Bewohner um 21 Uhr in den Federn lagen, beschließen wir nochmal kurz in der Bar vorbeizuschauen. Die Nacht war daraufhin eher kurz. Ein bunter Wandertrupp, die nach Santiago geflogen sind, von dort einen Leihwagen genommen haben um dann wieder nach Santiago zu wandern, erheitern uns mit ihren Geschichten. Um 8 Uhr laufen wir dann los, es ist sehr warm und wir nehmen jedes Kaffee auf der Strecke mit. Wir lassen uns Zeit, die nächste Herberge ist nämlich schon gebucht. Hilfe !Read more
