Santiago in the bag!

Stage 3 compete! 2094km from Brighton to Santiago!

Mountains have been conquered and friends made. This really is starting to turn into the epic adventure I had dreamed of.

Actually, I am already well down the road on the Camino Norde, 2434km from Brighton, in Aviles! Sitting on a sunny terrace with a beer. So much has happened in the past few weeks, so much cycling! Future posts will give more details, but for now – please be assured I am loving it!

In France I died and went to cycle path heaven! Hundreds of km’s of perfect pathways run through forests, many hours spent totally alone in the wilderness.

Spain is where the true spirit of the Camino comes to life. Every day a total mix of surface to cycle and the Alburgue’s (hostels for pilgrims on route to Santiago) make it all very social.

More details will follow, but for now I must go eat another delicious Spanish dinner… less than 10 euros for 3 courses and half a bottle of vino! Until the next update, Buen Camino!
