    We didn’t go into the duoro even though that was my preference, looking forward to responses. I really liked the CP, we went coastal and varient spiritual, which I would encourage.

    Lisbon - Santiago (via Fátima): Day 1

    In Fatima we found the way of the cross/way of the little shepherds very contemplative. We were there at sunset and it was very peaceful. Well worth a visit if you have time.

    Breakfast in St Jean Pied de Port

    For an indulgent breakfast try Hôtel des Pyrénées. The plates just kept coming. Only don’t tell them you don’t drink coffee! They were still talking about ”no cafe” as we were leaving.

    Muxia to Santiago

    We did santiago-Finisterr-Muxia in early November 2019, many pilgrims were coming back the other way so it won’t be lonely. There were waymarks for both directions pretty much at every turn (ie also marked back to Santiago). The route is fairly straight forward - we had no difficulties...

  20. Silus


    Did anyone see these? Another periogrino told me her farther told her these were Camino angels. He told her that when she saw these they were him come to watch over her. I saw them a few times when times were tough. They never seemed to be in a hurry to move on, no matter how close I got.
