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

Day 5 Walking in the Sand

Today was a ten out of ten on the Portuguese Coastal Way. I walked with a new Camino Amiga from Denmark, Erica, a seasoned peregrina who wanted to walk the same Way as I do: the Camino Litoral on the beach. We had checked the maps and guides and for this stage the recommendation was … Continue reading Day 5 Walking in the Sand

Day 2, Day 3 Labruge to Póvoa de Varzim, Day 4 Esposende to Chafe

First to recap the end of the walk to the village of Labruge. I walked with Pilgrims I met in Porto and we decided to stay at the donativo Albergue S.Tiago, about a km from the Coastal Camino. We were the first to register and choose our camas, no literas (bunks). Then a beach walk … Continue reading Day 2, Day 3 Labruge to Póvoa de Varzim, Day 4 Esposende to Chafe

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
