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!

26th of May – Cruz de Ferro

After a very pleasant walk up from Foncebadón in chill morning air, I reached the Cruz de Ferro before the main crowds, which was nice. There were a few people there but it wasn’t too noisy. I was already prepared for the fact that the atmosphere around the cross would not be quite like that of a church. When visiting the Cruz de Ferro, you really need to shut out what others are doing around you and perhaps some of the noise.

26th of May – Cruz de Ferro and Beyond | Foncebadón to Molinaseca

I wanted to make sure that I got to the Cross before big crowds of pilgrims got there. So as breakfast started at 6:30 at the hostel, I was on my way by 6:50. The walk up to the cross from Foncebadon was only about two and a half kilometers and it was a glorious walk in the early morning, with the crisp air, and great views looking back across the way we had come.
