September 4th, 2019.
Arrived in Porto for my 5th Camino.
After dropping off our things at our pensión in Labruge we took an Uber to Porto with the intention to walk as far as our jetlagged bodies would allow, which was to Matasinhos. Then we took another Uber back to Labruge.

September 5, 2017, my second day walking the Via Gebennensis from the Swiss border to Le Puy en Velay. This little bridge was close to the village of Chaumont, where I spent that night.

Exactly how do you do a thumbnail and what does it look like?
A thumbnail is a smaller image of a picture than the original. You can click on it to see it in a larger format. Using thumbnails instead of full size images helps a thread with lots of pictures load more quickly.

Here's how to do it. First click "📎 Attach files" under the response box to upload the picture. After it uploads you will see "Insert..."

First one in 1977 by train. Many since then by foot. Next one ASAP.
September 6, 2015, Camino Frances #3 ... "Rest Day" (Ha!) ... I vanned it, together with sillydoll and several others, south from Logrono to Clavijo Castle, site of Santiago's famed defeat of the Moors. Very much worth the effort. Stunning vistas. Then it was back to to enjoy a long evening in the tapas fleshpots of Logrono. Memorable day.

Fantastic views coming down into the valley of the Rhone and then the beautiful town of Seyssel straddling the river. Stayed a a campground on the near side of the river with cabins to rent and a restaurant on the premises. Lovely evening walk along the river to the bridge and back.

On a technicality - where I am it is the 7th but in your time zone it might still be 6th Sept. On the Olvidado, near Vilaverde Tarilonte, 2019, crossing the Bilbao to Léon railway. When I am old and doddery (quite soon, actually), instead of the Camino, I shall travel the smaller, more obscure Spanish railway lines. The scenery will be spectacular and the pace leisurely, probably starting at Canfranc. P1000234.JPG

Beautiful views all day. Up steeply, through extensive vineyards, down a cliff on a switchback trail, and back to the bank of the Rhone.

Segovia, on the Camino de Madrid 9 Sept 2019. We stayed at Duerme Vela (last picture) as the albergue, for some inexplicable reason, is sited way out of town. The bathroom once belonged to Antonio Machado, who wrote the poem that begins 'Caminante, no hay camino'.

September 11, 2017 Day 8 on the Via Gebennensis

Remote countryside with great views and very few services. Spent another night at a campground, this time in a caravan. But there was no restaurant and no store anywhere nearby, so supper was a few scraps leftover from lunch. The next morning it was at least 10 km to a coffee and breakfast stop. I remember being really hungry by then!

I´ve got Camino plans until 2042,
- or till I fall flat on my face, whichever comes first !!
Sept 12th 19

due to a wrong choise of boots, otherwise properly broken in, I languished 6 days in Puebla de Sanabria on the Sanabrés...I developed a huge heel blister and hobbled 14 km to the next stop. Blod running in my boot....
At that stage big toe nail had gotten it too. I haven´t had a heel blister since 1978, but Meindl was a bad choice for me...live & learn!

My daily routine next 6 days was to shuffle along in my flip flops, take the view on the tourists in the city and admire the view from the top og the walls....
Estrella Galicia would be the Prozac in a bottle at hand...

On September 20, 2017 I walked into Le Puy en Velay. My first Camino in 2015 was from SJPP to Finisterre, then in 2016 from Le Puy to SJPP, and finally from the Swiss border to Le Puy in 2017. With each journey I became a “better pilgrim”, meaning that I came to truly understand the significance of this ancient path to the Catholic faith. Looking back on my 2015 Camino, I realized that I had only scratched the surface of pilgrimage, and couldn’t wait to walk the CF again with this in mind. I did go back in 2018, and when people asked me why I was doing it again, my response was “to get it right”.

David,
This is a glorious sunset in the tones of early autumn! Were you heading toward Granon or further?
We were walking to Belorado that day.

Yes, the light through the mist gave it an autumnal look.

These photos rarely make themselves available, it was just the right time of morning when we got to the top of the hill above the mist, just as the sun crept out. The walkers in the foreground were a bonus to give a bit of scale and perspective.

Oops my mistake. It was an autumnal sunrise. Thanks for your info and again for that lovely photo!
