... late afternoon and Lucia, the GPS, led
us to a parking area with a guy frantically waving us in to park. He pointed us
in the right direction but no one seemed to be there. We drove around a little
bit and then after phoning, we established contact with the son of the owners
who let us in and proceeded to treat us with great hospitality, even making us
tea and coffee. Much to Herb’s dismay, we landed back at the same car ...

Legs eleven - the final frontier

... welcome shower and turn round.
Back onto the Santiago streets by 6:30 and after a saunter and thirst slaking we chose a suitable supper stop. The fare was hardly Spanish, save the starters dominated by sea-food, but it was welcome, tasty and not expensive. Back to the hotel, for a final round of you-know-what (I won twice!) and it was bed-time.
I'll complete the blog on Saturday on our return and will upload a few pics for your ...

Santiago de Compostela - Arrival!

So, 1,120km, some blisters, shin splints, many laughs, some querying of my sanity and lots of wonderful memories and new friends later, I have arrived in Santiago!

We just don't conceive of covering such distances in such a slow and fundamental manner anymore and yet once it was the ...

Day 34 - The End (or Is It?)

... This practice was originally used to rid the cathedral of of odours (and disease) from the dirty pilgrims. (Maybe that is still true!) The cathedral also hosts the supposed remains of St. James. Whether or not this is true, I am not to judge but the history of the Camino is based on the presumption that this is true. For me, the spiritual insights happened on route so it really matters little to me whether the remains are authentic or not. Upon completing the ...

Finally in Santiago

... Hiked 10 miles We expected to be walking into Santiago in the rain but were pleasantly surprised to find that it was a nice sunny day. Most of the 10 miles seemed to be uphill and yet again we were exhausted when we arrived in front of the cathedral. We have had an incredible journey and were both surprised as to how emotional it was reaching our goal. Although our bodies are extremely tired we have both thoroughly enjoyed the ups and downs of ...
