I finished my Camino Portugués...and what can I say? I tried to explain friends/family the feeling what a camino gives you. I showed pictures to them but you know what it is? I can't find the right word to describe to walk a camino. Even it was my second one. I had such a wonderful time there. Met friends probably for life, had such good conversations with lots of pelgrims, eat such nice food, good drinks and had lots of fun. I did de central one + the espiritual one (incl boat). Spoke to locals, fell in love with Portugal (and the people who lives there) and it will take some time to let the feelings will land in my mind. It was a spiritual journey from day 1 till the end. Man oh man....so excited!!!

For now I'm filled with emotions....

I had to share this.....

Well done Marcel. I also thought it was a fantastic camino. The people were so nice and helpful, which makes such a difference. Soak it all in. I'm sure there are a few more in you yet!

Marcel,
This post expresses very well the emotions you feel you cannot explain in words. A journey such as yours and many of these stories of new and meaningful friendships and experiences touches my heart. Enjoy the beautiful emotions until you are ready for the next journey. Congratulations to you for completing your Camino.
