We are now finished the first tour for this time of year and looking forward to our first day of walking with our second group tomorrow morning! Here are a few photos and highlights from the past week…

First of all we must congratulate the entire group on walking over 100 kilometres! We had some beautiful days of sunshine to help us out however the afternoons were sometimes a bit tough going as humidity levels were very high.

We thoroughly enjoyed meeting the many animals along The Way. These included a hungry pig who loved eating chocolate croissants, a friendly horse who couldn’t eat her apple fast enough, and a bright caterpillar crossing the road.

One morning we came across a tub of free and delicious organic apples left out for hungry pilgrims.

Chatting with other pilgrims along the road – from Ireland, Spain, France and many other countries – and exchanging stories of kilometres walked, how best to care for blisters and the general experience of walking through the Portuguese and Galician countryside.
