June 24' Portuguese
Hi my friends! I just wanted to let you all know that me and my daughter are on our way! We arrived in Porto on June 5th and are in Baiona now!

I received so much help from you all and am very appreciative. I probably wouldn’t have had the courage without your kind words.

I’ve found it quite joyous and relaxing to post to Instagram stories, then highlights each night as my way of winding down. My Instagram account is @laurenligreci if you’d like to follow along!

If you need a little help with Instagram ….
- Stories can be accessed by clicking on the profile pic! They expire after 24 hours, then I move them to the “highlights”
- Highlights are the circles with labels … PORTO, CAMINO 1, CAMINO 2

How are we doing? Pretty good! We are enjoying a rest day in Baiona and head to Vigo tomorrow. Our feet are sore. We just shipped a package to Ivan because we’ve learned after so many days what we can live without. I can tell you it is about 5lbs!

I hope you follow our journey! I’ve already filled 3 highlights and it’s been very enjoyable for me. I’m disconnected during the day and get to journal our day at night.

❤️
Lauren & Natalie (or Natalia as she calls herself here in Spain!)

Oh I added the pic of my current lunch, we’re eating WELL

Technical backpack for day trips with backpack cover and internal compartment for the hydration bladder. Ideal daypack for excursions where we need a medium capacity backpack. The back with Air Flow System creates large air channels that will keep our back as cool as possible.

C'mon, you start a live on camino thread and then you don't follow through? That's not fair! We're all waiting for updates....

Yes I appreciate you're posting on Instagram: how about simply copying and pasting the highlights here onto this thread? I long ago decided that I wasn't going to do Facebook, Instagram etc and from many comments here on the forum I am not alone......

Haha! I actually didn’t, i just noticed the moderators must have put it in there. I don’t know how to do this, ha. Will post pics …
 
The focus is on reducing the risk of failure through being well prepared. 2nd ed.
Day 7: We just had a challenging day from Redondela to Pontevedra. Our biggest km day and it was hilly! We met 2 girls from America and they walked with me up and down the hills and chatted with Natalie. They are my camino angels, I am not sure I could have done it without them! Especially because I twisted my ankle.

The 2024 Camino guides will be coming out little by little. Here is a collection of the ones that are out so far.
Yes. RICE - rest, ice, compression, elevation. Assume you have a simple stretchy bandage with you. If not, go to a pharmacy in the morning and buy one, and ask for advice.
Thanks! I don’t have one, maybe I’ll wrap it in a towel tonight and head to a pharmacy tomorrow. I tried 2 today and they were closed in Old Town Pontevedra
