Constance’s Camino 4

flowers

The Camino way goes through fields and meadows…

.

 

.

Castrillo de los Polvazares

…it winds into little villages with stone houses and cobbled streets…

.

.

Villafranca del Bierzo

…on and on through bigger towns…

.

.

That Way

…just follow the yellow arrows! They lead you alongside pastures…

.

.

near Foncebadon

…up over the mountains…

.

.

Lavender

…scented with Spanish lavender…

.

.

134

…the markers say we are getting close now!

.

.

near Ferreiros

In the misty valleys…

.

.

Lavacolla

…a little rest, and a wash by a little brook…

.

.

Cathedral in Santiago

…if you keep to the road, one day at a time, it takes you to Santiago!

We did it!

.

.

Fisterra

The end of the earth (Fisterra) can be reached by another 3 – 4 of days walking, but we took the bus!

    • I am not sure about elated…we were all exhausted, pleased and glad to have reached our goal…a little shell-shocked by life in a city again, and just plain shocked at how fast the distances disappeared while riding in a bus! I think the other feelings percolated in and are still percolating…life is a journey…

  1. This was truly a breathtaking journey…and the icing on the cake was having Constance show us interests along the way.
    I especially was enamored with the stack stone house with its archway door. I wanted to go inside.

    The open countryside with those specular vistas were other-world to me.

    I’m glad you took the time to be in such perfect shape for this excursion because I can assure you, in two million lifetimes, I could never achieve this, thus I would never have seen these wonders that you were able to share. Thank You

    • You are very welcome. We were glad to have experienced the Camino, and glad to have gotten to the end. The houses, countryside, fellow pilgrims and the journey, it was altogether unforgettable.

    • Thank you! I truly believe we all have our own distances to travel and burdens to carry – this experience was like a distilled version of what everyone does in a lifetime. I feel so lucky to have been able to walk the Camino.
