Greetings all,

My mother (64) and I (29) arrived in Lisbon on Sunday, July 16th and took the train up to Valença and started our camino on Monday.

We walked to Porriño the first day, then to the outskirts of Redondela (Hostal Jumboli - not recommended!) for the second night. Pontevedra was a blast and wish we could have stayed longer, but wanted to keep moving in order to make it to Santiago by July 24th for the feast day.

We decided to take an extra day here in Caldas de Reis. It has been HOT. 35-40C. Other than the industrial stretch in Porriño, the trail has been great -the fountains plentiful and the views inspiring.

Heading out to Padron tomorrow, then to Teo and then to Compostela on Monday. We´re in a world of our own - with the only brief contact with the rest of the world when we stop for nourishment along the road and everyone is watching the Tour de France!

Well - siesta time is almost over and an amazing seafood dinner awaits....

Best regards from the road to Santiago -

thanks for the greetings, ivar! the walk from teo to santiago was great today - overcast, with just enough mist to keep us cool!

we´ve touched the tree of jesse, knocked heads with the maestro and even hugged the apostol...we went back to the peregrino office for our compostela and are now ready to celebrate!

the fireworks display this evening was amazing and the energy of the people here is wonderful. everyone seems in great spirits for the fiesta. between the live bands parading up and down the streets and the spontaneous dancing, it´s been great being a part of it all.

thanks for the link - i´ll be sure to check it out as many events as i can!

With apologies to Dylan Thomas, 'Do walk gently into the Night' - Portugal just lost to Korea in the Mondiale and lost first place in their division. Do express condolences.
Hi... anyone out there hear of a perigrino/a losing their money belt today? It was just lying on the path. I am sure someone wants it back. There is no ID inside. I have it and would very happily...
