The Road So Far-Part 3

Hello everyone, and thank you so much to those of you who have been following my blog so far along the way-it really means a lot to me! For those of you who missed it, I am currently walking the Camino de Santiago, a pilgrimage across northern Spain to the tomb of St James the Elder. I’m currently about 3 weeks into the trip! You can read more about what the trip is in Parts 1 and 2, as well as Camino De Santiago 2015.

I’ve now been in the more mountainous part of Spain for a couple days. Yesterday I hit the highest point on the Camino, which gave such a great feeling of accomplishment. The views have been simply incredible, as I walk along the rim above the long valleys. Β Here’s a shot of me at the top!

I’m wearing the same outfits in most of my photos haha-I only brought the bare minimum on this backpacking trip. You can expect a post once I return home of exactly what I brought, for anyone wishing to read about what one needs on the Camino!

I also got the chance to stop by and visit a Templar Knight castle in the lovely little city of Ponferrada. They thought at one point that the Holy Grail could have been at this location, and so they dug all through it. Fortunately it has undergone renovations since then and is simply amazing! I got a delicious ice cream cone at the shop across from it too-what more could you ask for?

Here a few more shots of the Camino-as they always say, a picture is worth a thousand words!

This trip has proven to be just as life-changing and incredible as the first time I completed it. All the walking time truly gives a person time to reflect on who they are and where they are going, and I feel so lucky to be here doing it. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves travel and hiking! Thanks for stopping by 😊

Love Kiki

  1. This is amazing! I loved your pictures and reports! I read once that it is like you said, life-changing. And a pilgrim also saying that along the way she left many things that before were considered essential, and then she saw they were superfluous… so it is good that you took not so many things! I am eager to read when you arrive in 7 days! Well done!


    1. It’s definitely true that you realize what’s really important and what you really need along the way. Thank you for following along Denise, I love reading your comments! Have a great day πŸ™‚
