500 mile hike through Spain~ the French way "Camino Frances"
So much happiness in one photo
The group arrived
Incredible how far we've come ! At one point I thought I wasn't going to make it,, yay
On the way to Santiago
I drank 3 liters of beer 👏🏼 and after we did not continue to walk, was too late to check in somewhere so we slept outside under the stars and yes it rained in the middle of the night, very hard 😂
Stopped for a beer this place looked interesting beer bottles everywhere ! You finish your beer and after write your name and a wish and the owner makes a Christmas tree out of all the beer bottles each year
I will miss you chocolate croissant so so much
Marco I expect a maxibon to arrive to my house by mail
I love my furry friends so much
The cemeteries here are pretty
On my way
These hand painted shells are AMAZING I will paint one myself!! "I do not love man less, but nature more"
100km mark !!!! I arrive in Santiago in 3 days 🎉🎉🎉
Glad I have been educated cows come in other colors besides black and white 😂
We love staying in the bigger cities, even if it means we make up the distance tomorrow !
This is Caroline she has been walking for 2 months she started in Paris! She's my hero amazing person
Precious. Precious baby.
I'm in Galicia ! 147km away from Santiago !!
Poor picture. But this is my favorite breakfast. Chocolate croissant heated up. Dough-y fluffy bread. Filled with chocolate. Praise god
Freezing life of Amanda but still smiling
2 routes. 1 being the road, the street, the bike path. 2 being the mountain, the hills, the walking path We always choose the hills !! Harder the climb better the view.
Yes yes. I get to wake up and walk through a blizzard. Yes raining yes cold but the walk must go on (((:
I for some reason have been incredibly lucky on the Camino........ one day a year.... this city of like 200 people have a fiesta and it happened to be the night we were all there ! So fun to celebrate so lucky so greatful. Truly truly amazing. So funny how it all works out. I thought the saxophone player was gonna pass out from all the attention
One way road .... hi
Yes I will share my maxibon with you
I will make bio degradeable toilet paper shark tank here I come
The original crew ! Family 1.0
Started in France now we here ! I plan to arrive in Santiago in 7 days ! I also plan to walk an extra 3 days (90km more/55miles) to finisterre -to the Atlantic coast (coast of death) "end of the world" where we all swim in the freezing ocean and have a bonfire to burn our clothes we walked in celebration !
Here's my progress ! September 2nd we treated ourselves to a rest day in Leon (after 2 long days prior) ! Wonderful city
Walked miles through a vineyard today ! Unlimited green and purple grapes SO GOOD
When ur ice cold beer is as big as your water >
I don't remember the last time I sat on a couch, looked in a full body mirror, or watched tv ! But so greatful for my new relationships and memories
I LIVE for the little street markets in the small towns we walk through ! Simply amazing! And if I didn't have to carry a 20lb backpack you'd all have souvenirs !!! But Ashley made the cut for a small one (: miss you
So thankful and incredibly lucky I am finally in 0 pain !! But here's small blisters on my little toes ! No pain though !
Stone river ! So neat how this got here I don't know
I wish my pictures did a better justice but the view is amazing
I love coming across these piles of rock or stone people add to !
Amazingly huge pile of burdens (lack of a better word) ! Bring a rock or stone or anything you'd like from home to carry with you on your journey and when you arrive here, walk to the top and leave it behind. Beautiful day
Husband and wife doing the Camino pushing their baby in a stroller ! Amazing from Denmark we shared a lunch together
These bird nests are insane
Sun setting ! Same walk home ! Face one way get a mountain view orange sunset ! Face the other way get a purple sky moon rise ! INCREDIBLE
MOON RISING ! SUCH A BEAUTIFUL SKY Learning to appreciate my 12 hour walk days arriving at 950 when the door closes at 10 lights out
I watched someone herd hundreds of sheep today
I RAN THROUGH A FIELD OF CORN TODAY! As long as you know he direction you entered you can exit 🙏🏼
People are so funny
1€ and a giant plate of pasta
I look forward to finding a guitar at the end of the day we all come together
Double rainbow anyone . Ps it didn't even rain
I had 2 for dinner ! Mom wasn't around to say no (:
Hobbits ? Underground ? Pretty cool there's a whole city of them !
Painted a mans toes
My group walked 41km one day and 37 the next day so we could arrive in Leon a day early and all take a rest day together in the city ! We arrived to our air bnb and partied the night away ! This is a guy in our group pretending to stamp our pilgrim passport and check us into the "albergue" to assign beds and put our boots outside show us to the showers so funny ! Enjoying my day off in the city !
Cheers to the best thing ever made
Healed and back to walking normal !
I always buy 2 breakfasts! One for me one for the cats
Good morning !
today marks the halfway point of the Camino !!! Family dinner (: also I walked 23 miles today new record
Appreciating the minimal shade ! The stretch we're on right now most people skip and refer to it as the stretch of death!
The clouds are unreal
" I know I know nothing but the second bar is cool"
Only made it 10 miles today ..,,, stopped for 1$ beer and 2$ shots... played some card games , met some nice people. Will pay the consequences and make up the distance tomorrow (: having a blast
A man walking the entire Camino with his 2 dogs ! Super cool
Check out this birds nest !!!! Insane
Yes yes yes..., I know you're all curious. My body has found something new every day to surprise me with. I don't know what this is. But thankful to be alive
This is Alethia, my mom on the Camino. Feeds me, bathes me, and brushes my hair. Thank god for her
Good place for a rest, so loud but so peaceful
Yellow yellow yellow. Is all you see and oh my is it beautiful.
Are we there yet... 😂😂😂😂
Almost there ! Just after this never ending road......
Another rainy day, enjoying my trash bag
I never ever thought yellow could be so beautiful
Hey there lil fellas, so cute and friendly I fed them my hair
Trying to find a way to get one of these beautiful tiles to take home
Got another one of my favorite ice creams !! I love MAXIBON COOKIE ICECREAM! 10:45 is not too early !
Beautiful poem ! If it is hard to read take a screen shot and zoom in I love reading all the notes pilgrims leave at the churches
Started my morning off with this creative fountain !
Miles and miles of sunflowers this is my favorite thing to look at !
Absolutely soaked in my "down" non-waterproof jacket with no hood enjoying every single moment. Truly the landscape is incredible. I spend some days without music and this rainy day I walked alone with headphones it was perfect
It's worth it EVERY single time to walk up hill !
Started my morning wet and rainy ! First day walking in the rain
Started my morning with my pants glued to the inside of my scab !! Couldn't get it off for shit so I cut my pants and walked all day like this !! Unbelievable
Treated myself to a large pizza afterwards.... you didn't expect anything less
Did a 17 mile walk solo today felt great
Lovely notes from the neighbors
Made it to the top
Good morning sun !
Ended the day with a heat rash and good company !
A MASSIVE AMOUNT OF COWS HEADED OUR WAY! So cool
When ur injured you get an excuse to stop whenever you want, we love our cold ones !
When you least expect it you come across these chill hangout spots that run on donations only ! They have fruit water and snacks (:
Shady pretty view we love walking through the forest uphill... just to walk back down
Miles and miles of fields of sunflowers !! Taller than me
We eat grass. We sing stupid songs. We count steps. We die. We laugh. We joke. We play baseball with rocks and walking poles. We place bets. And make memories yay for long walks 👏🏼
Yay giant map
There is a group of horsemen doing the Camino !
The stray cats love when I share my breakfast with them
"Don't stop walking around the earth"
Got to see the sunrise !! Look how beautiful the sky is So amazing walked the first mile and a half backwards
My new family here is taking care of me, went to the farmacie and got me ALL I need to succeed and be healthy and as pain free as possible! If you couldn't tell I had a great day today 💜 miss you guys so much
See you one month from today !!
Group photo (the best we could get) ! After a long hard day we all meet up to have "cans" tons of beer cans, cook dinner, share stories, talk and mingle. People from all over with all different accents and ways of life, language barriers, you name it ! Wouldn't have it any other way
Here is an update ! I am doing okay, just some loss of skin, semi deep, unable to heal due to the place. But I can walk! Slowly it's not a race ! There's no deadline ! It's 90% mental. I am greatful for my journey
Not 100% sure what this is but it's a pelegrino (pilgrim) on a bike with a shell fountain of some sort haha (: kinda cool just thankful for the water it provides after 18 miles! And appreciating the art
Good cheap eats ! On my way !
If anyone is needing their bike washed.... I loved this !
Walked so slow we got caught in the rain up ahead ! But such a pretty view ! No place I'd rather be! So blessed. I am thankful for my days. Truly I could have lost my life. I am missing everyone back home 💜🐃
We celebrate our "almost there" with the best freaking ice cream I've ever had ! Also it heals wounds 🍪🍦 this cookie ice cream I swore to get one every time it crosses my path
Periodic naps in the middle of no where to prolong our day in the sun ! So happy to find slow walking friends
My pictures REALLY don't do a justice but the landscape is AMAZINGLY beautiful !!
A little direction for ya
Fuck you............ lmao had to
Lazy day broken body update picture !! But still walking !! Slowly but surely
Good inspiration, thanks yall
I love how different cities have different sidewalk marks
Good morning from logroño
I am okay nothing broken or sprained ! Here's something gross to look at
slept under the stars and saw the sunrise
Was in an unexpected bull run !! Got gored by a bull sent to emergency ! Will trek on tomorrow ! Updates to follow I am okay !!!
Lucky to be in 2 parades in one week !!!
Could use this right about now !
STARTED MY MORNING WITH A WINE FOUNTAIN!! Unlimited wine !! So fabulous
I have walked over 100km I am an official pilgrim today !
Last night I Was in bed and I prayed over and over again please heal my ankle or I cannot walk I thought i pulled my Achilles tendon or really strained something. Thought I had a fever and a terrible cough. My socks were soaked and they needed to be dry by morning. Went to sleep and started my hike. 2 minutes into my hike we stop at a water spout to refill.
At the water spot 2 minutes in, I solved my ankle problem. It wasn't my ankle it was my shoe. My socks were completely dry. My cough was minimal. And all my problems were solved
This was the water fountain Made me so happy Daddy's with me Watching me protecting me healing me "The Camino will always provide"
I washed my clothes with everyone in my group at the hostel and think I'm allergic to their soap!! This is from my socks all over my feet
Yay made it home ! 15 miles today And also I think I'm dying my ankles knees and hips and shoulders hurt lmao Hoping my body adjusts
Made it to the top
Little things like this is what gets us through the day ! Laughed so hard
Beer at 10am to celebrate our accomplishments
So pretty spent most of the day walking through this farm/crop land
Walking to our next destination today through pamplona and joined a parade!! So much fun dancing through the city
Here's the bell it's huge ! Had so much fun
Went to a church today! Drank holy water, got my pilgrim stamped and rang the church bell myself !
Stopped for a dip !
So exciting when you see a little piece of town and know it's your destination ! Listening for the church bells when we're close !
Pretty pretty! I made new friends today to enjoy the walk
Almost there ! Nice rocky trail to support my feet ankles knees and hips if you were wondering !
I love when I see little friends along the way
Day 2 friendly reminder of how far I am
90% of walking is mental~ just enjoying the view giving my feet a break
9.9 km to go ! However far that is (: at least the view is nice 4,064 ft
I just want to lay down with those sheep
Tempted to ride you the rest of the way
So foggy can barely see 10 ft in front of me ! 3h25m left
4 hours more until my destination !
My first hearty breakfast..... bread butter and jam !
My last form of transportation before my hike ! On my way to St. Jean pied de port ! See y'all at the finish line
