2018 Camino Primitivo
I have been back almost a week since walking the Primitivo with my wife. We started in Oviedo on Sept. 13th and arrived in Santiago on Sept. 25th. We enjoyed perfect fall weather. Not a drop of rain and the trails while slightly wet in a few areas had dried out greatly as compared to what I had been hearing earlier this year. I am going to put a posting of a recap of each day over the next week. So the first is Day '0', or our travel day. We live just outside Edmonton, Alberta, so getting to Spain is a long haul for us. First we flew to Toronto, Ontario and then from Toronto to Madrid. From the airport to the ALSA down term terminal by taxi (tight connection for the bus to Oviedo) Madrid to Oviedo by bus. So instead of Planes, Trains and Automobiles like the classic John Candy movie, It was Planes, Taxis and Buses! So by the time we got to Oviedo we had been up just shy of 24 hours! Once we arrived we did a little sight seeing, but not a lot as we were dead tired. So below are our pictures of our arrival in Oviedo.
