Day 1 Porto to Matosinhos Day 2 Matosinhos to Labruge Olà amigos. I'm posting from Labruge after a walk from Matosinhos on the spectacular Portugues Coast.

Trains and Boots on The Way

Hola from España, Amigos. I'm finding out just how much I love the Camino and why! The spiritual and calm walking compared to being a traveler in crowded big cities is a reason I continue returning to the Way. But, the earlier arrival gives me time to vanquish jet lag, meet people on and off … Continue reading Trains and Boots on The Way

New York on the way to Spain and Portugal. . . Again

Hola amigos, are you ready for another Camino? I couldn't resist one more walk in Portugal, this time starting in Porto and the Coastal Route.

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!

We walked a challenging rocky, hard surfaced day, and toured the … Continue reading On to Ponferrada and Off to Portugal
