Camino Portugues 2/2, October 2022

Camino Portugues 2/2, October 2022.

At last after two years of covid I was able to continue on the camino from Porto. Not that many pilgrims on this particular trail. Most spaniards started from Tui, Spain. The northwest of Spain is called Galicia, this region is known for being rainy which I experienced first hand. It was an interesting peregrination and I met many interesting people from different coutries. Hiked 11 days and covered 211 kilometers.
