Finally, reached Santiago and passed the test to get the Compostela, all in our new Camino Portugués T-shirts! #caminoportuges #camino ...

Very close to the ending; Santiago! Lots of positive pepping along the road - however tons of mixed emotions. What should we know do 4:30 in the morning? Luckily we still have one more morning left for aching feet & knees and desperate searching for an open cafe with warm, newly made bocadillo! #caminoportuges #camino ...

Sometimes sunshine sometimes rain - doesn’t matter, we all are happily enjoying walking the #camino with our different outfits! #caminoportuges ...

It’s super sunny here in Pontevedra - even stone guys need to wear sun glasses! #caminoportuges #camino ...

No way getting confused about what way to go l! Getting closer to Santiago and the amount of arrows increases - can you spot all arrows? #caminoportuges #camino ...

The rug sacs have lined up and waiting to enter the Albergue! Good to have one that can walk by itself! #caminoportuges #camino ...

Entering Porriño today we saw this sign. Obviously there is some kind of prohibition, but is it; poodles in general or prohibit poodles having cans? Perhaps it’s prohibited to put poodles in cans? But why would you like to do that??? Could it be an old local food tradition; poodle in can? Well, it’s one of these mysteries you run into walking the Camino... and I’m glad I’m not a poodle, so hopefully I don’t have to worry... #caminoportuges #camino ...

Some groups start in Tui, needing many, many pilgrim passports. For others it’s the beginning of the ending of a hot sunburned walk! #caminoportuges #camino ...

We have stopped in the city of Tui, starting point for many Camino Friends, the coffee shops are here a bit more of Fancy Pilgrim style! #caminoportuges #camino ...

Sometimes you get help from unexpected experts. From nowhere this parrot appeared and after a few “hola” it help me checking out the quality of my trekking poles! They are fully ok - parrot proof! #caminoportuges #camino ...

Early morning in northern Portugal close to the Spanish border - and we are starting to see cows! So friendly! #caminoportuges #camino ...

Walking in the deep woods, very much uphill. No coffee and hungry! Then suddenly this local entrepreneur and his food truck appeared - after 5 minutes we had omelette, coffee and soft drinks. All served with a lovely morning sun and birds singing. The #camino provides! #caminoportugues ...

Ponte De Lima very nice town with possibilities to practice your bull fighting skills. Well my wife says it looks more like I'm dancing flamenco but I see a huge potential in my matador moves ... and as long as the bull is made of brass, I’m ready for a new career!! #camino #caminoportuguese ...

You are never too old for a moped and checking it out with your buddies! The #camino is such a walk close to life and all the beautiful people around you! #caminoportuges ...

Just a hangout with the laundry, a few local olives and a red Vinho Verde wine from the village next doors; Ponte De Lima. Nothing happens - and I like it so much! #camino #caminoportuges ...

It’s getting hot, really hot, already in the morning. So It’s time to switch to the 1,5L bottles, hope that will help! #camino #caminoportuges ...

Some of miles outside Porto, early morning and the frogs are singing farewell to the night. #camino #caminoportuges ...

After 22 Days walking the Camino from Lisbon - the first pilgrim menu available at Vila do Conde. So nice not to have to choose between so many options, the pilgrim menu is straightforward and with limited amount wine making you morning walk a bit more steady! #camino #caminoportuges ...

Imagine that Christopher Columbus had succeeded in convincing the Portugués to discover America. Then I had been standing next to a replica of a ship that perhaps could have been used for the voyage, I think. I’m overwhelmed! #camino #caminoportuguese ...
