"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 twenty-five on the Camino Portugués, drawing to a close, was an emotion-packed day, walking the final 7.6 kilometers and reuniting with friends in Santiago de Compostela. Our journey was ending, but our pilgrimage had only just begun.
Our day twenty-four on the Camino Portugués was long, yet beautiful and enjoyable, meandering back and forth along the path of the N-550.
Our day twenty-three on the Camino Portugués was filled with long stretches through the Spanish countryside, on a consistent-appearing terrain. It was not my best day, nor the most beautiful, but none-the-less we kept walking.
On our day twenty-two on the Camino Portugués, we joined the throngs of pilgrims from the Central Route and those walking the final 100 kilometers from Tui.
On our day twenty-one on the Camino Portugués, we walked four kilometers on the Sendal Litoral, then went farther inland to complete the day on the Coastal Route, walking through Vigo and later via the high, flat and easy plateau trail system.
On our day twenty on the Camino Portugués, along the Coastal Route initially, and then the Senda Litoral, we combined stages to do one-and-a-half traditional stages, with the help of the local bus route.
Our day nineteen on the Camino Portugués was an adventure, first getting across the Minho River, then meeting up with our old Camino Primitivo friend at the ferry station and joining together for a glorious walk along the Spanish seacoast to her house in Viladesuso.
On our day eighteen on the Camino Portugués we blazed our way on the Senda Litoral, actually walking on the long beaches and connecting with the sea!
Our day seventeen on the Camino Portugués had no practical Senda Litoral route, but instead turned inland onto the historical Coastal Route
Our day sixteen on the Camino Portugués was along urban areas, a bit of coast and through verdant fields of Portugal, then a jaunt through smaller towns.
Our day fifteen on the Camino Portugués began our coastal journey from the Sé do Porto on the Senda Litoral.
The romantic city of Porto, bustling with energy, has something for everyone.
Our day fourteen on the Camino Portugués was a very, very long day, filled with enchanting walks on Roman roads, an antique Monastery in Grijó and azulejo-tiled churches.
Our day thirteen on the Camino Portugués was full of interesting railroad crossings, a walk on a medieval bridge, through the historic town of Bemposta and up and down many hills.

Our recommendation for the best trekking pole. Carbon fiber construction (not aluminum) makes them ultra light weight and invisible to airport security x-rays! Carry on the aircraft anywhere and save yourself lots of headaches. It worked repeatedly for us! Also hide your poles in your pack from potential thieves, before you get to your albergue!
