Oia to Baiona

Hola, amigos. We're in España on the Way to the Espiritual Variant through Oia, Baiona and villages along the way. Every day is new on the Camino. What we imagine might or might not become reality, but onward we walk. I've been surprised by the number of arrows, shells, Waymarkers and Pilgrims on the Camino … Continue reading Oia to Baiona

From Portugal to Spain: A Meandering Tale and the Long Walk

Hola amigos. I'm writing from Muxia on the Costa da Morte. This isn't a rerun, although I walked to this village on the Finisterre-Muxia Camino in July. Check out earlier blogs for more images of this incredible coast. My story goes from present to past, the real world. I'm excited to be here, my fourth … Continue reading From Portugal to Spain: A Meandering Tale and the Long Walk

Notes from the Camino Portugués por La Costa

Hola amigos, I'm catching up on my Camino notes to September 30, 2018. More stories to come. Almost our last day in Portugal and the best yet. We walked again on the sandy beach and walkways, by water almost all the way. Swimming and wading into the cold sea. Brrr. Earlier in the morning, the … Continue reading Notes from the Camino Portugués por La Costa

Walking Into Santiago

Hola, dear friends. I walked into Santiago today after an early morning start from Padrón. But the Camino isn't over. Thank you for walking with me and I hope you will continue to share my journey as I process this ancient, yet modern pilgrimage. I walked in with two pilgrim friends, but as you can … Continue reading Walking Into Santiago

Redondela to Pontevedra on the Portugues Way

Hola amigos, I am catching up on my stories. We are in the Galician area of Spain, walking closer each day to Santiago. Rain is predicted, and expected for the green and lush region. I know I'm in Galicia, too, because I've seen many Horreos. Do you what these are? The Route is lush, green … Continue reading Redondela to Pontevedra on the Portugues Way

Porriño to Redondela, España

Hilly up and down on hard surface and more beautiful vineyards, orchards. I don't remember a soft trail on this stage, oh maybe one or two, but mostly steep pavement, even though we walked through a lush paradise. About 17-20 Kms. into a busy town. I have a small wound from a small fall, with … Continue reading Porriño to Redondela, España

Valença Portugal to Porriño Spain

The Peace Bookstore, I couldn't resist. The message: The more you read the less you imitate. Olá Amigos. Today I walked across time from Portugal back to Spain and I will report it is easier walking forward than backwards the way I originally entered, on the hot pavement that was not the Camino Way. By … Continue reading Valença Portugal to Porriño Spain

One Foot in Portugal, One Foot in Spain

Olá Amigos, I'm in Portugal as I begin the short Portugues Camino, a minimum of 100 Kms to Santiago de Compostela. I walked at least 18 Kms today, but that won't count, as I will need two sellos (stamps in my pilgrim credencial). Our morning started around 5:00!a.m. today as everyone was ready to move … Continue reading One Foot in Portugal, One Foot in Spain

On to Ponferrada and Off to Portugal

Hola Amigos. We are now in the city of Ponferrada in Albergue ALEA, a recommendation of the "Favorites " pilgrim download. Yes! So excited to have a vegetarian dinner, take a shower and sleep in a small dorm room for four, bottom bunk. ¡Bueno! We walked a challenging rocky, hard surfaced day, and toured the … Continue reading On to Ponferrada and Off to Portugal

Onward on the Camino

Hola amigos. We have been walking long days, with slow Wi-Fi on my not so slow walk: 25 Kms to Hospital de Órbigo, a town close to the end of the Meseta, the flat plains on the plateau of central Spain, between Burgos and Astorga. We stayed at Albergue Verde, fabulous vegetarian food, music, long … Continue reading Onward on the Camino
