Nice, but... Uhmm, not sure if this virtual walk through Rua do Franco/Vilar and on is helpful: I am getting travel urge....

At least you don't have snow. Me neither, in Arctic Tromsø!

Currently on a "Virtual" Camino and striding out across Galicia!
I have seen it as quiet as this when going into the Pilgrim Office on the early shift but oh, this is so sad.

Thank you so much. (Heavy Sigh) 🥰 I know those streets well. The buzz from the square, the gelato, the churros and hot cocoa and so, so much more. I’m sure we can’t wait for the hustle and bustle of Santiago de Compostela to return. August 2019.

It’s so beautiful... and I despair for all the shop owners, the cafe and restaurant owners. Many places appear papered over in ways that here at home indicate they simply aren’t coming back....
Breaks my heart.
May better weather and efficient vaccination and the extension of the holy year restore the “Camino bubble” economy...
Not for my sake.... but for the sake of those who live there and rely on what it says as you walk into SdC:
The the Camino is the backbone of Europe.

.....And in Spain 200.000 km2 covered with snow and ice.

Beautiful Santiago by the way. I love it

When the holiday lights are lit, I bet it is a very beautiful scene to walk thru.

I used to look regularly at the webcams in O'Cebreiro and Santiago, but they don't seem to be working now. Does anyone know why?

Thanks for your lates walk through Santiago, walking past were I stay near the University, but most of all walking past the old pilgrims office takes me back to 2013 after 8 days in hospital walking into it, I never felt so at peace. Thanks again I pray that I may walk there very soon.

Thank You Ivar ! It is surreal to see Santiago without all of the pilgrims and bustling about, but what a lovely walk in the familiar ! So few people, but all respectful and keeping safe...the sunshine was an added touch of hope! Thank You, stay well

You walked past the Hotel Rua Villar where we stayed before we walked our Camino Portugues in 2018. We saw a rainbow after a storm before we left the next morning for A Garda. I hope we get to return soon to another rainbow to start our way. Thank you for this video.

Thankyou Ivar . As we say here in Ireland, ''you put the longing on me!'' It was sad to see so many places all closed up. Hopefully we will all have the 'jab' before years end and can make plans again.
