    Excellent blog. I was tempted by the Camino before deciding to walk across Canary Islands this year – but your blog has made me think I should perhaps add it back to my list of plans.

    Wow amazing photos and great itinerary. There’s no better way to experience and feel a historic old town like ghis by foot. Just to soak in the Spanish vibe. 😍😍 @ knycx.journeying

      Thank you! Not only Santiago is a remarkable historic old town, but I had the chance to visit other historic places. As an ancient pilgrimage route, the Camino passes through plenty of historic towns. And you just got to love their culture and gastronomy! 😉

    Thanks for sharing your research – this is something I’m hoping to start planning soon too – I’ve been inspired by the any films I’ve seen which feature the pilgrimage – The Way, 6 Ways to Santiago, I’ve seen quite a few!!

    Honestly, I never thought of going to Portugal. Now that I’ve seen this post, I will definitely include it in my bucket list in Europe. I like the thought of getting a passport like stamp booklet! That’s a cool way of introducing tourism in Portugal. Thanks for sharing!

      Thank you! Although I started in Portugal, I started at the portuguese-spanish border. All that is in this post is in Spain.
      But I must say that you should include Portugal in your bucket list also!! Ancient cities, great gastronomy and wines, nice beaches and a sunny weather, Portugal has it all! Search for Oporto and Lisbon, you’ll love it!!

    Sounds interesting, we had never heard about such a walk. The public stay option for as less as 6 Euros sounds very reasonable. It must have been a great experience exploring the nature and history along the way. All the best to you for your Camino Primitivo walk. Looking forward to reading your experiences.

      Thank you! Indeed it is a great experience and quite cheap actually! You should see “The Way”, a movie from 2010 starring Martin Sheen; it is all about one of the Caminos, the Camino Frances. I hope you enjoy it!
      Thank you for your support!
