    Ribadeo

    August 29, 2017 in Spain

    And we keep on heading west, after leaving Gijon we moored to Cudillero a lovely little town and harbour. There is no marina but fore and aft bouys in theory, we arrived just after lunch and inched in initially it look like a wall of rock but then opened up. We could see the 'Transito' bouys yellow not red, but the lines were all tangled so being John he decided to untangle at least one by cutting and threading it from the other and retying. We had a nice quiet night and were safe on our untangled mooring. After sorting mooring John rowed us to town for coffee, so much nicer and cheaper in Spain than France, and we walked through the little lanes to the top of town. Sadly when it came to rowing back we realised dingy was a bit flat, when we got on board boat we found out someone had dropped a fag butt in dingy and it had burns tiny hole in floor and side before going out. Some people are so nice. Any way it was fairly easy to repair just a nuisance, next day we motored to here, Ribadeo on the Asturias Galicia border, passing Tapia on the headland, very built up. The coast line is a bit more like we are used to now with rocks to avoid. Tomorrow we are busing to Lugo with its 2.5km Roman wall around it another Unesco site its all about culture!Read more

    Bienvenido a Galicia, my first time

    September 24, 2017 in Spain

    Today my journey toke me from Asturias to Galicia. I have never been here before, but I just love the accent here. The accent is a bit musical. Very nice.

    I am not so happy with the camino of the past 2 days though. A lot of the stages of the past 2 days was on asphalt or next to the busy road, which was murder on my feet.

    Yesterday, I left Otur, the camino was almost all alongside the road, and my feet just couldn't deal with that. So finally, after having a coffee and some local pastry with the three french ladies, Elisabeth, Brigit and Silvie, I went to the bus station to grab the bus for the last 10km to La Caridad. The french ladies walked and I would see them later in the albergue.

    I booked the private albergue in La Caridad for myself, Yolanda and Hugo (the dutch Couple) and the three french ladies. It was called La Xana, which means the girl. They had a beautiful cat, whose name was ...... Xana 😂.

    It was a good albergue, nice and clean, beds were good. I was the first of the group to get there, ofcourse, because I cheated......
    Then came Hugo and Yolanda and an hour or so later, the french ladies. They were very excited because it was going to be their first time ever in an albergue 😝😝😝.

    They will never forget it! They had gin tonics, then ate in an underground dingy restaurant and were fortunate to be able to enjoy a major snoring feast during the whole night! They all woke up with a headache, but still in good spirits. It was their last day today and we said our goodbyes after breakfast.

    I had already decided that I wasn't going to walk the whole stage today. So after breakfast, I ordered a taxi and he brought me to Tapia de Casariego. From here I walked and took the coastal route and ended up seeing many beautiful beaches. At the last beach I also went pootje baden. I hadn't realized it, but after this stage there is no more costa. From now on we turn land inwards and I am not really feeling it!
    Tomorrow I will walk and see how I feel about it.

    Tonight I am staying in a hostal in Ribadeo, with a girl from Madrid as my sleeping mate. It was also her last day today. I met her on the way to the hostal. I had stopped by the albergue first to see if I could stay there, but the place was cold and looked like bed bug heaven. No way I was going to stay there!

    Bueno people, Bon Siman! Let's see what this week brings 😁

  • Day37

    One of Galicia' most visited beaches, this spot is about 18 km from Ribadeo. A coastal walking path is available, but a group of 8 of us opted for the cab option. At 15€ each way, and four in a cab, it's a very quick and affordable way to get there.

    We had found tide information on line and we're lucky that the next low tide was at 9 pm. It's very important to go at low tide. Since sunset is at 10:15, we had plenty of daylight. We got there around 8 and quickly understood why this place is so popular. In summer they limit access with a ticket system. We read that the limit on the beach at any one time in high season is 2,000. Before the tickets, the crowds reached an unimaginable 10,000! For our visit, there were people there, but nothing close to a crowd. It was a pretty great way to end the day.

    One of our little band of four is hoping that another day on the bus will be good for her feet and that she will be walking again soon. We are headed for a town about 28 km and one killer hill away.

    Have arrived in Galicia

    June 21, 2017 in Spain

    We took a long detour today, and we walked to at least five or six amazingly beautiful beaches. This is just a gorgeous part of the country. We ran into several other pilgrims, a couple of young Americans who had just graduated from college, a Spaniard trying to find her way, and then a smattering of French and German couples.

    Each beach was more beautiful than the next, and we had a hard time picking out our favorite. At one of them, we met a very nice couple from the area. They insisted on sharing their food with us, and wanted to know all about the Camino. It was a really nice day. The entrance into town is not so nice, because it consists of walking over a bridge that is about a mile long. But here we are, and no surprise, the weather has changed. Rain is in the forecast, but we have had such a large number of beautiful walking days, that it would be really selfish to complain about a little rain now.Read more

    Ribadeo

    July 29, 2016 in Spain

    Ribadeo je malé přístavní město, ve kterém to v noci pěkně žije, i když prší. Teplota nám klesla na 18 - 21 stupňů a přidal se déšť, který nám má dělat společnost i následující dva dny. Vyzkoušeli jsme místní specialitu pulpo gallego (pikantní vařená chobotnice na galicijský způsob - olej, brambory, česnek (ten jsme tam však necítili) a pálivá paprika) a byla překvapivě moc dobrá (což ocenil spíš Jirka). 😉

    PS: Takovéhle mosty tu mají všude!

    02.10.2017 - Ribadeo

    October 2, 2017 in Spain

    Heute ist die bisher kleinste Tour angesagt und ich will nochmal die Sonne und das Meer genießen.
    Morgens in der Albergue mit einem super Frühstück versorgt, geht es los, von Figueras nach Ribadeo.😉
    Das kurioseste heute war die Überquerung des Rio Eo, hier ist auch die Grenze zwischen Asturien und Galicien. Direkt auf der Autobahnbrücke und einem Meter neben den Fahrbahnen ist der Fußweg. Dann noch Begegnung mit Radfahrern bei einem 1m breiten Weg, das hat schon etwas abenteuerliches.😯 Ein recht schöner kleiner Hafen befindet sich in Ribadeo, sonst ein mehr unscheinbares Städtchen. Also wird noch etwas die herrliche Sonne ausgenutzt und in der Grünanlage zum Sonnen breit gemacht.
    Pünktlich zum Feierabend setzt gegen 20:00 Uhr der Regen ein und lässt die abendaktiven Spanier etwas früher nach Hause gehen.
