"In each of us dwells a wanderer, a gypsy, a pilgrim. What matters most on your journey is how deeply you see, how attentively you hear, how richly the encounters are felt in your heart." ~ Phil Coustineau, from his book, "The Art of Pilgrimage."
Our day seven on the Camino Inglés was to be our longest thus far.
Our day six on the Camino Inglés was short, yet difficult, as the relentless hill-climbing continued. At least the Way here was rural, mostly shaded, and on quiet forest lanes for most of the day.
On our day five of the Camino Inglés, cracks were starting to show in our spirits and bodies. It is yet another day of serious climbing, this time with a climb at the end of the day, into Presedo. We lifted one another by taking frequent rest stops and water breaks.
Our day four on the Camino Inglés was another trip through the lovely Galician countryside, starting from sea level in Miño, climbing steeply, then ending at sea level in Betanzos
Our day three on the Camino Inglés was one of my favorite stages on this Camino, walking through the lovely Galician countryside, with a very steep hill climb out of Pontedeume on the way to the albergue in Miño.
Day two on the Camino Inglés is a nice, but mostly uphill walk through the historic medieval town of Neda and onward over the hills, to cross the Eume River into another medieval town of Pontedeume.
Day one on the Camino Inglés takes us from Ferrol, around the estuary of the Ría de Ferrol and into the town of Neda, Spain. While there are periodic strenuous hill climbs, this day follows the river predominantly.
Our day two on the Camino Inglés, of the La Coruña arm was another steep uphill climb, though short and sweet.
Our day one on the Camino Inglés, of the La Coruña Arm was a long jaunt through urban areas, a riverside park and country roads, with lofty views after a very long, very steep climb at the end of the day.
Now you can purchase our Camino Portugues Ebooks, taken from our web pages, to use as your own personal guide.
Day twenty-one on the Central Route of the Camino Portugués was a day for digging deeply into myself and my Camino experience.
Day twenty on the central route of the Camino Portugués can be very long or very short, depending on your desires.
Day nineteen on the Central Route of the Camino Portugués was another fabulous walk through the Portuguese countryside, then a tour through the medieval city of Valença, an international crossing of the Minho River and the grand finale in the medieval Spanish city of Tui.
Day eighteen on the Central Route of the Camino Portugués is mostly off-pavement on paths and cobblestone lanes and includes a rigorous climb in the middle of the day on the ancient Roman road, the Via Romana.
Our day seventeen on the Central Route of the Camino Portugués was a very long walk for me. It was however, full of charm and our ongoing comraderie which made the miles go by quicker than otherwise. We continued to help Magdalena, however, she made her own road as well.

Our recommendation for the best trekking pole. Carbon fiber construction ( not aluminum ) makes them ultra lightweight. H idea your poles in your pack from potential thieves , before you get to your albergue! ( See more of our gear recommendations! )
