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!

24th of May – House of the Gods | David Vidal

Rob The Traveller

Today on the way to Astorga, I took the long way round to meet David at the House of the Gods. I’d heard a lot about David who has been living on the Camino for many years purely to provide food and drink and a place to rest for weary pilgrims. With the number of pilgrims on the track today, I thought I might not get a chance to chat with him, but at least to sit in his open air cantina and soak up some of the energy and generosity that I expected to find, would be a unique experience.
