  • Portuguese Camino: Day 01 / Lisbon to Alpriate
  • Distance: 14.5 miles / Total 14.5
  • Time: 6 hours 30 minutes
  • Ascent: 504’ / Decent: 563’
  • Weather: 85 degrees / cycling overcast, rain, sunny

What to expect Camino post-Covid? The Albergue host confirms there are fewer hostels and those open fill daily. A local baker delivers breads, sweets, and cheeses every day to the village. These deliveries are more than a convenience to communities without grocery stores.

Bakery on wheels.
Fabulous tasty not-too-sweet cookies.
Blooms, feast for eyes.

  1. Dear Linda,
    So looking forward to your travelogue Linda, makes me feel like I am there with you. Thank you for the article on the trombonist; I had no idea how young New Orlean’s jazz is!
    Sincerely,
    Bill

    1. Glad you enjoyed the trombonist article. I look forward to you next jamming session with Harry. Saw many runners when I left Lisbon in the early morning hours. With the cobblestones and hills this would be one marathon to pass. ~linda

    1. I had thoughts of our conversation about low top hiking shoes being sucked off by mud. So far the mud has not need as heavy as in France. Any Caminos planned? ~linda
