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 …

Better after a beer

We took a slow pace to get to Salceda because apparently there is nothing here. Well wrong. There's a lovely new restaurant. The weather was hot and it seemed like the road got longer as we we looked for our Pousada. Exhausted and sore. Tomorrow is another good walk before Santiago. A large cold beer and a nice hot shower sorted us ...

Santiago and the Pilgrim Mass

... reliquary, it occurs to me that this man actually knew Jesus. This causes me to stand and contemplate this for some time before moving on to see the rest of the cathedral. Although I have been to the Vatican and seen the crypt where the remains of St Peter lay, this reliquary really makes me think about the reality of St James knowing our Lord. It is quite a solemn moment. I spend quite a bit of time in the cathedral and as time draws on I ...

The year is about 813 and one night he saw bright lights in the forest and ran to tell the ...

    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.
