Bedbugs and Blisters

For this leg of the Camino we were blessed with beautiful dry and sunny conditions all day – perfect for walking.

It is quite amazing to think that we have completed over 680Km of the Camino so far and today we will we reach the 100Km milestone from Santiago de Compostela.

The scenery was spectacular today, we crossed some stunning streams and rivers , many of which ran right across our path.

We all arrived in Portomarin within about an our of each other.Tom , who we left gingerly navigating a very steep down hill section first thing in the morning , somehow arrived before everyone else and was half way through his first beer when we arrived.

The original village of Portomarin was submerge following the construction of a dam back in the 1950’s , the church was then painstakingly moved stone by stone and taken to higher ground.
