Camino de Santiago

Hiking the VF, that’s Via Francigena to everyone else

After nearly a three year hiatus, I am off on another adventure. This time the Via Francigena. Very excited, and nervous. I will start tomorrow and cover just the Italian leg of the walk. I had great intentions of doing... Continue Reading →

Camino Finisterre – Day 5 – Logoso to Corcubion

Logoso is a cute little hamlet. I recommend you stay here. The albergue is quite squishy. But the little pension, at €5 extra pp, is affordable for that extra privacy. Son was happy to be away from the black mould... Continue Reading →

Camino Finisterre – Day 4 – Moranos to Logoso

Our grand plan of waking up early to walk fell by the wayside. Peering at the still dark sky, it felt too cold to walk. That's just an excuse, of course. So was the reason that I didn't know what... Continue Reading →

Camino Finisterre – Bus Timetable To Santiago

I know it was quite hard to find the bus schedule from Finisterre to Santiago. It may have been in some Spanish site, but it wasn't found by me. So I figured I'd write this down before I forget. Below... Continue Reading →

Camino Finisterre – Day 1 – London to Santiago de Compostela

I'm rather in awe that I'm here again. Only 4 and a half months ago, I was in awe that I'd completed the camino Frances- albeit with manky feet. Since then, I'd been on a stint on the Camino del... Continue Reading →
