Couldn't have picked a better hostel for the weekend. Many of the visitors were on the tail end of their several week or month long walks to Santiago de Compostela. I enjoyed the opportunity to have a family at this hostel. Everyone could eat meals together and there was a nice informal area to hang out. Would definitely recommend. Staff is very helpful.

It is a full day after my return from Galicia, and I still feel as if I spent the weekend on a different planet. Up to this point everywhere I had been in Spain, although each city had its own special sites and amazing history to see, was very similar with regards to weather and landscape. What I thought about Spain matched the general perspective …

We were told that Lunch would be at Una de Quintana, about 1pm but without a word to our group the bus continued on finally stopping at 1.45pm at a roadside cafeteria/ restaurant. At 5.10pm we arrive at a very modern hotel, NH Obradoiro in Santiago de Compostella. Again we get single beds instead of our preference for double but the reception staff are ...

... together with a huge amount of hugs and tears and love flowing all over. We wanted to be early to Santiago to make the pilgrims mass at noon which we did. Previously in the week they did not use the botafumeiro...large incense burner type object...but they did for me. It was amazing to watch the monks swing it back and forth. Truly and honor. The cathedral was packed and as I stood there watching people come in and arrive I saw ...

Walking the Way

... about the intricacies of the human condition. But in the end, you each walk your own pace, your own thoughts and your own reasons for being there. It’s a powerful lesson.

People smile knowingly and say, ‘you’ll come back and do it again’ but I suspect that this will not be the case for me. Am I glad I walked? Absolutely and always. But my lessons were ********. I’ll take the precious gift with me and pray very hard that I never have to learn them ...

... later that I must have missed another fork and taken the long way to Sarria that Ricardo warned us about, because I walked so fast and without stops that I could not believe I had not caught up to my good friends. I met a girl from Belgium and had a good chat with her, she was doing El Camino alone. I got to her albergue too. I got to Sarria and went into the first cafe, as I came out Ricardo was there! I did take the long way and everyone was at a bar close to the hotel having ...
