3rd of June – 3 More Days to Go | Palas de Rei to Melide

Rob The Traveller

I left this morning at 7:45 and the weather is starting to change. It’s quite overcast and very humid. So I expect we might get some light rain later in the day. Just as I was leaving Palas de Rei, I bumped into an old friend, Bob from the US. It’s always nice to see familiar faces along the journey. That’s why I tend to sit and have breakfast right on the Camino, to see who’s coming through.

2nd of June – Time no longer stands still | Ventas de Narón to Palas de Rei

It’s another sunny day as I’m on the road by 7:45. I’m walking through pine woods to the sound of the birds. But of course there are a few more pilgrims on the road these days. It’s funny how perceptions change in terms of time and distance during these final days. Up until this point, I didn’t really think too much about how long I have been walking, or how far I had walked.

1st of June – Another Lesson? | Portomarin to Ventas de Narón

Rob The Traveller

I’m about 8 kilometers from Portomarin, so I only have another 4 or 5 kilometers to go today. The road has been very busy so far today, but as normal, I’m falling back through the groups of pilgrims until I don’t really see anyone else behind me. This generally means that I’ll have quite a peaceful journey from here.
