#22 - Taking the Spiritual Route on the Camino Portugués

#22 - Taking the Spiritual Route on the Camino Portugués

13th October on the Camino Portugués

👻 One of the options on the Camino Portugués is to take what is known as the spiritual route. It looks absolutely stunning in the cicerone guidebook and because I do have time and want to make the journey Last as long as possible- I’ve decided to take it!

🌑 Leaving Pontevedra in the dark this morning was a bit challenging. We had to be out of the albergue by 8 am I was walking at 7.45 am. There were certain bits through the city where the street lights were getting turned off and I couldn’t see anything! It was fine, there were just a few sections which I wanted to walk through as quickly as possible.

🥾After about 4K of walking along the central Camino the route splits off of to the Spiritual way.

😀I really enjoyed it, there was some more quiet paths and walks through forests, but it seemed to be a lot quieter than the other way with less pilgrims.

🌧 It was rainy and wet in the morning, but it soon cleared up. I did debate with myself if I should still do this route if it was going to rain and I still wanted to do it whatever the weather. At the end of the day if you get wet! You get wet!!!

🚿 The great thing with the Camino is you do have a bed and a hot shower waiting for you.

3 more days to go before I reach Santiago de Compostela!!! Thank you so much for following along with my Camino journey!
