Santiago de Compostela (and a change in plans)

Thursday, Santiago
Thursday, Santiago

Inge arrived in Santiago on Tuesday, May 31, the end of a 775 km walk across Spain. Wednesday was a day off, enjoying the sunshine with the friends she made on the walk.

I’ve been in Rome, Lucca, and Florence. After looking more closely into walking the Apennines, it became clear that it wasn’t going to work—many of the places I hoped to stay are not yet open for the season and alteratives involve a lot of bus travel. After some discussion I changed my plans and arrived in Santiago on a Ryanair flight from Milan late Wednesday evening.

Today we set off together to do the encore to Inge’s Camino walk—the 115 km walk to Muxia and Finisterre on the Atalntic Coast.

  10. Good to be together again! You are certainly having an active retirement while the rest of us are complaining about our lack of energy. What a wonderful way to experience the best Europe. I look forward to the photos and the stories when you return.
