We hope that you had a great summer. We would like to share some interesting things that we have been doing.
After forty years of being Spain tour operators, my wife and I, along with our son Luis, finally had the opportunity of doing the walk of a lifetime – El Camino de Santiago. We started in Valença, Portugal. Since we are not in the greatest shape, we decided to walk a modest 10 to 14 kilometers a day. It took us ten days to walk about 120 kilometers and, we were awarded the Compostela – the certificate of completion.
The experience was great. Along the way, we met some fantastic people, from the man who gave us fresh bread that he was delivering, to the lady who invited us into her house so that we could view the Bay of Vigo from her terrace. We saw some awesome Galician countryside, tranquil forests, natural cascades, bountiful vineyards, historic pazos (mansions), and all kinds of barnyard animals. Of course, the food and wine were heaven sent after three or four hours of walking. Eating zamburiñas (bay scallops) and drinking Albariño wine also helped to make the trip pleasant. Naturally, reaching Santiago was the culmination of our journey. What a feeling of accomplishment arriving at the Praza de Obradoiro and looking up at that majestic Cathedral.
Well, this was the highlight of our summer. If you would like us to help you create a unique and exciting cultural travel experience, please contact us.
