I am in Peduoso and walking into SdC tomorrow (God willing). I started in Astorga on July 3. What a beautiful experience it has been! Notes: 1) Most albergues and bars open, especially in Galicia. But do carry some nuts, fruit, energy bar to be a meal just in case of unexpected bar closure. 2) Walked alone most days and only two pilgrims at a couple of albergues. 3) Found lively company several times, though no communal meals (kitchens are closed). 4) Walked within sight of other pilgrims only today (Arzua to O Pedruozo). Two school groups went by. 5) Most fellow pilgrims are French and Spanish, with a few other Europeans. I am one of only 5 from USA that I met. No Brits or Aussies crossed my path —wait, maybe one? 6) Wayside churches are closed.
Enjoying every step!

Rebequa,
What happy news this is; thanks for letting your digital friends/readers know that you are almost at Santiago. Enjoy your entry through the woods tomorrow.
Please touch the stone of the cathedral for all of us who dearly wish we were walking with you.
Godspeed and Buen camino.

May you enjoy your last day.

I doubt you will find many Aussies.

300m from the cathedral and around the corner from the fresh food market in Santiago. Perfect place to tele commute from (1GB symmetrical connection).

I agree......it's a huge "Alas"..............my favorite folks on the Camino Frances hailed from the Land Down Under !!!!! Places like Margaret River, Caroline Springs, Melbourne (where my Caulfield cousins settled), Wollongong, and Newcastle.........all wonderful people !!!!!! When the lockdown ends, let's all meet up in Melide for some beers and fried pulpo !!!!!

Please all keep safe 🙏 Buen Camino 💐

What a weird world it has become; Aussies at home wanting to get out & Aussies abroad wanting to get in and neither can get in or out.
We call this ‘stasis,’ from which we derive, in English, the word ‘static.’
You can’t help wondering, when oh when will we be doing our next Camino.
Commiserations to my fellow citizens and hopeful pilgrims in Aussie land.
Full of envy Rebequa that you are there, now, with whoever is there with you.
Say hello to Santiago from all of us down under!!

Hola from me, here in Adelaide, full of envy as well. We are currently in level 5 lockdown in SA (and other states) as the Delta variant gains speed. I'm particularly sad that this means cancelation of the St James dinner at Nunyara, on Sunday 25/7, after all the efforts of our wonderful Australian Friends of the Camino chapter, over many months. I'd been so looking forward to that. Take care, all 🙏
