Hello, does anyone have up to date information about the trail conditions between sarria and Santiago? I saw there was flooding along the Portuguese route and they are expecting heavy rain today and tomorrow. Thanks

Wet. Muddy. Flooded trails. Today about 50’ of the trail was underwater near A Brea. Flooded ditches on both sides. Small group trying to figure out what to do. Due to the heavy rainfall 70 mm in the last 12 hours, my shoes, socks snd feet already very wet. Nothing to do but wade through 5” deep water. So that’s been the worst for flooding between Rondriso and O Pedrouzo. Very little of this part of the Camino is on pavement, beside the road. There’s no way I’d start in Sarria with a 10 day forecast of heavy rain. I’d go somewhere warm and dry instead. Head south!

Thanks so much for your response, Vintagecowgirl. That's very helpful.

Take a train to Alicante and breathe:
 
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.

Try restaurant El Buen Comer in the restaurant street in the old town. Top quality food.
Thanks amigo. I’d kind of assumed that Alicante would be like my beloved Malaga. That everyone would fly in and head to the resort hotels leaving an interesting city behind them, un-buggered. I’m starting to think I’ll need to head to Murcia or Cartagena for some r&r. El Buen Comer looks like it will keep me distracted for a while at least 😉

When in Alicante it is well worth it to visit the Santa Barbara Castle: For an old pagan as you, it can be visited by an elevator at the bottom, and then you can walk (as peregrions often do) down to the town again. It is a lovely city, smaller than Malaga, the start of the Camino Sureste, and well worth a visit. Good choice.
