June 25, 2015
Todays date is memorable to me for a few things.
1) In 2013 I made it to Santiago de Compostela after walking 400+ miles.
2) In 2011 after NOT finishing my Camino, but walking 250 miles my favorite kitty passed away. DEP, RIP.
3) In 2015 I leave Europe to return home after completing the Caminho Portuguese da Costa.
Here are some pictures from the last few days. The first one my cousin Emiky will like! In a shop in Porto. Sorry I couldn’t bring it home for you!
A quick day trip back to Spain on an errand of mercy for a family member! LOL.
A picture of the antibiotics taken earlier in my trip for my infected blister. The dosage was 3 per day for 5 days and they gave me 30 tabs. Different country different protocols.
Package going home by mail. Cross your fingers and toes SWB Jr.
Beautiful tree close to where I stayed the 2nd time in Porto.
My last meal in Portugal!
San Joao celebration set up in local store in Porto and Torre de Clerigo that Liz, Wendy and I walked up a long time ago.
Run down house across from where I stayed in Porto the last time. The owner of my hotel has bought it and wants to fix it up!
I can’t say enough about the place where I stayed this last time in Porto, I thought that I had made a mistake, but it turned out really well. Very nice people who run it. They helped me a lot!
My first of two airports to get back home. Still seeing those yellow arrows as I walk to my hotel.
The next day, one last shot of the great work that the Portuguese tourism office. They are really promoting they’re country well.
Getting ready to board to go to Frankfurt.
I got to Frankfurt. Wonderful hotel in the middle of no where with a view of the freeway.
Got in my last walk going to dinner last night. It looks like there are flier gardens in this area. They remind me of “pea patches” at home.
What did I have for my last dinner in Europe? German? Spanish? Portuguese? NO! ITALIAN!
Now I just need to shower, have breakfast, and get to the airport for my flight home.
Oh yeah, last time hand washing my clothes!
It’s been a wonderful Camino and trip in many ways and I am so happy to have had the opportunity. Hasta el proximo Camino!
