31st of May – The Start of the Final Hundred

Rob The Traveller

Finally I’m within a hundred kilometers of Santiago. I set out from the albergue at about 8 a.m., again, it’s a beautiful day, slightly overcast, which is good, because it won’t be too hot. The first part is through a little valley with a beautiful old church. I paused to reflect a moment. The only sound, the dogs barking across the little valley and a couple of horses in a nearby field.

Equipment and Body Repairs on the Camino My gear and I are starting to break 🙁 My focus now is on just getting to Santiago and making sure I walk every step of the way, which is a requirement to obtain the Compostela.  With good foot care and walking slowly (even slower), I’m sure I’ll make it….   Morning Start   Great mountain views   Pilgrim Statue   Old church and chickens   Feeding chickens   More cows   Water fountain   Foot repairs   More foot repairs   Small villages   Gear failure   102 km to...

30th of May – Leaving O Cebreiro

Rob The Traveller

I’m just walking along the ridge line from O Cebreiro to Triacastela. As always, walking at this time of the morning is very pleasant, the sun hasn’t risen yet so it’s not too hot, the air is quite cool, and all I can hear is the tweeting of the birds. I almost have the path to myself, because I think a lot of pilgrims left quite early.

29th of May – The Good Day | Heading towards O Cebreiro

Rob The Traveller

Today was a good day for a number of reasons. Last night my brother David, who happened to be in Spain on holiday, dropped in for dinner and stayed the night. That was really cool as we haven’t caught up in a while, and we shot the breeze over a bottle or two of red wine. The walk up to O Cebreiro was really quite good today. Although it took a wrong turning!
