I still find it hard to believe that I will be returning to Spain for the 5th time next year. I keep getting asked that there must be other things I could do or places I could visit, but as long as I enjoy walking, I’ll keep making plans to return. I love the Spanish people, the culture, their way of life and also meeting people from different corners of the world. I hope to start in Belorado in the first week of May. From there, I will walk from 11 days. I would hope to reach Ponferrada within that time. I then hope to catch a bus to Santiago de Compostela, stay a night and fly home to Dublin. It all looks well and good on paper, you know?, but I have found Astorga to Ponferrada to be the most challenging section. I picked up some bad blisters there in 2012. However, I think I stand to gain from walking the full Camino before.
I don’t have flights booked as of yet but hope to do so over the Christmas period. I have kept in touch with my friend Garry in Santiago (check out his site www.spanishadventures.com) and I may meet him and his family, provided he is not walking with a group. I won’t blog during this Camino but I will continue to post pictures to my instagram and facebook accounts while I am there.
And just to finish off this post, why not “like” my facebook page here?
