Camino de Santiago Portugues Day 9

It poured and poured for hours.  Our rain gear wasn’t a match – we were soaked to the bone.

The good news – today was the most beautiful of the Camino so far. Rolling hills with old stone buildings, rich dark brown tilled farmland, freshly sprouted corn rows and heavy with the smell of manure.

Since we managed to stay on the correct Camino today – we finally met up with other Pilgrims. All die hards. The walk continues in rain or shine.

The sun starting peaking out just about an hour or two before we got to our final destination of Barcelos. Our clothes dried but the shoes are still sloppy.

43,103 steps and 18.47 miles.

About Paige Shaw

Bitten by the wanderlust bug years ago - I have become an eyewitness to and documenter of the world’s divergent cultures (92 countries and counting). Photographing vistas that take my breath away, extraordinary architecture and connecting with everyday people doing everyday things. I am constantly reminded that a smile is the same in any language, that making a connection with something so simple is beautiful. Watching my photography transform from using a point and shoot in the old days to the new love of my life - the incredible Sony a7rii mirrorless camera - has inspired me to do more, take chances and seek out the unknown. I’m also a wife, mother, yogi, pilgrim, burner, skier, scuba diver and gypsy. “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” ― Pablo Picasso

      We have no idea what we did wrong. There was one yellow arrow after another. I think we ultimately would have ended up in Braga. We walked the Camino Frances for 800 kilometers and had better luck! It all makes for good memories!
