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.

Santiago de Compostela pilgrimage, March 2009

The 1000 year old pilgrimage to the shrine of St. James in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela is known in English as the Way of St. James and in Galician as the Camino de Santiago. Each year, over 100,000 pilgrims from all over the world travel to Spain to walk the Camino, or part of it.

We walked the first half of the journey (St. Jean de Pied Port - Léon) about 470km in March 2009, during off- season. The second part, 380km, is planned for October.
