Melide to Arzua

Another short walking day.  There were a lot of hills on today’s walk.  We arrived at about 1:00 and sat at a nice cafe overlooking beautiful mountains and pastures.   Hard to believe we are half way through our adventure.  Having a great time.  Patty and I got a little crazy today trying to share the right experience of our pictures.  I heard a cuckoo bird and wanted to share that in one of the crazy pictures of me below.  Enjoy the scenery.


3rd of walking – Papas do Melide






This was a short walking day only 15..9 km. The scenery continues to be amazing. Our weather has been great everyday. Today had the most chance of rain and we made it to our hotel without a drop. Because a short day we enjoyed relaxing at the hotel bar.

Pictures first day of walk!



This is 10:00 pm

Wednesday was a travel day for us.  Got up late and had breakfast at a  nice cafe in Madrid.  The coffee and pastries are great!  We will not be losing weight on this trip

We left Madrid to meet up with family and new friends to start our adventure.  After a short flight we are in another amazing city.  Santiago de compostela is awesome.  We had drinks and dinner at a small cafe.  The shrimp was great.  We walked around the cathedral but did not go in or take pictures, we are saving that for our final day on the camino.

It stays light here until after 10:00 so I am encouraged that my walking pace can be slow and I will make it to the next town before dark.

One more day of touring before we start walking.   We hope you enjoy our pitches the old architecture on the buildings is beautiful.
