Day 2 O Porrino to Arcade 14.5 miles It looked like rain all morning, but we lucked out and didn't get wet. As a result it was cool and a little breezy until the afternoon when the clouds lifted and the sun came out. We kept putting on and taking off our windbreaker. The little village where we are staying is on the edge of Ria de Vigo, an enormous river that looks more like a lake- beautiful views through the valley down to the shore. It became apparent to both of us today ...

Day 21- Barcelos to Ponte de Lima 20.5 miles Today was the most rewarding walk so far on the Camino Portuguese. Although it was long, it was a beautiful ramble on back lanes, dirt tracks, farm roads and almost NO road walking. There are definitely more pilgrims since Porto, we meet them at almost every stop. In addition to Australians, we have met other Americans and lots of Germans, as well as some French and of course, Portuguese. I will post several pictures from the ...
