Day 1 of the Camino Finisterre (Day 55 of my journey)
Today was the first day we walk to Finisterre / Fisterra. It was a really nice walk. Within about 15 minutes I was out of the city of Santiago walking on nice country roads. A fair proportion of the Camino today was actually on tracks through forests. Generally, it was a fairly easy walk and some nice views to walk through.
There were three open bars along the way to get coffees and things like that, so that was nice to be able to have a break. Negreira seems quite a nice little town. I’m staying at the San Jose Hostal, which is interesting, it’s quite a modern building that has a well equipped albergue and it also offers private rooms.
So, my private room is actually in another part of the building and it’s like I rented an apartment! It’s very comfortable and I think it’s around €40. For a couple of people, it would be ideal. It has a kitchen and everything. So, a nice accommodation, and I had a good menu del dia in a local bar just down the road. I then relaxed doing my laundry in the albergue because here we have a washing machine and dryer. So, another good day on the camino.
