Triacastela – Barbadelo

Sleeping outside invariably means waking up early with the dawn. The two Serenas had already left before sunrise keen to cover the kilometres and to avoid the heat of the day. Ray was more relaxed and set off later while I stopped to admire the Church of Santiago and its iron scallop designs. Triacastela was […]

O Cebreiro – Triacastela

All was misty, cloudy and quite strange when I awoke. It looked like a day of walking in the clouds but after breakfast the view was fantastic. The cloud had receded and was sitting in the deep valleys below O Cebreiro. The sun glowed strongly over the cloud and made for a very mystical view. […]

Pereje – O Cebreiro

Serena, Serena and I woke early on the terrace of our makeshift outside ‘albergue’. It had been a cold night but we survived! It was not yet light as the man from the cafe arrived to open up. We thought it best to pack up quickly. Were we in trouble? He simply said ‘Good Morning’. […]

Hospital de Orbigo – Rabanal del Camino

I met Patricia just after breakfast (sorry, I don’t have a photograph of her even though we met and walked several times!). She had not slept well. During the night a group had arrived. I refrain from calling them pilgrims as they were apparently loud and boisterous even at 1am – not pilgrim behaviour. When […]

Villar de Mazarife – Hospital de Orbigo

It had been a late night last night so few were out of bed before ten. As it was a private albergue, the Paraiso de Jesus wasn’t in a hurry to throw anyone out. We all sat in the garden listening to some laid back music trying not to think of the effort it would […]
