My Camino Route in 2017

My Camino Route in 2017
This year (2017), I will be walking most of the Camino Levante from Albacete to Zamora I've alloted three weeks in September and October, but may have time at the end for more walking.

Santiago 16 October

Well, call me a wimp if you want. I woke up this morning and it was already a steady rain with predictions that it would last through the evening. I already spent the entire walking portion yesterday in rain and was not looking forward to another day of it. Originally I had planned to walk 20 km to Padrón, then catch the bus from there to Santiago today anyway. So I altered my plans and just took the bus from Caldas to Santiago instead. It is still raining here in Santiago. I got off at the train station and bought my ticket to Madrid for tomorrow, then walked through the old part of Santiago to my favorite Hospedaje and got a room for tonight.

I figure that in 28 days of walking that I walked 475 miles or about 17 miles per day. The walking part of my Camino is over. The rest of the time until I go home on Sunday will be spent traveling to Madrid and relaxing.

That bus sure looked good in the rain. I wasn't the only pilgrim who caught it for the ride to Santiago
