Pedalling Portugal – Photo report

In early March 2016, I found myself in a deserted coach station in Spain. At my feet lay my bike, wrapped in industrial size bin bags. Next to it, my four panniers rested in a line ready to be mounted on the racks. And I stood in front of them, the reality of my journey slowly sinking in. Eventually I hooked the panniers to their rightful place. I got on the bike and off I went. This is what I saw.
For 32 weeks, I will post a batch of photos every Monday morning.
Later words and sounds will come. But for now, I’m going to share what I experienced through the photos I took. If you miss a post, go to this page to find all the links.

I spent my days dancing with the Camino, losing the arrows in favour of small country roads, before returning to them in the afternoon for the warm shelter and friendship of pilgrims albergues (hostels).

      I’m glad you’ve enjoyed the photos.

      I actually was on the Camino earlier this year. I’m now back in the UK but thinking of going back to Spain. I originally wanted to follow the Camino del Norte but ended up on the Via de la Plata instead. But the little I’ve seen of the Camino del Norte are making me dream of it. I’ll definitely be back on it at some point in the near future.

      Where have you been yourself? Just on the Via de la Plata or have you experienced other Caminos?
