The Start ~ Sept. 14, 2022

  • 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

For me, beginning the Camino from a kitchen seems befitting. Close to the Rua Augusta Arch is Sé Cathedral, considered the official Camino start for Lisbon. After asking the cathedral usher three times where was the Camino’s way-marker, he escorted me. Figure-background…do you see purple graffiti or the Camino way-marker?

Graffiti, but of course.

  1. Dear Linda,

    I’m so excited to see you “out and about” again. You look as healthy and fit as ever.

    Are you part of a group again? Solo?

    All our very best to you now and always,

    Tom and Mary

    Happy memories from our Coast to Coast days and our later trip to Yosemite National Park. Treasured memories.

    1. It’s amazing the connection walking offers. Yes, good memories of my first long distance walk where we met. Solo traveling but will meet a friend from a previous Camino as are independent plans overlap. Best to you and Mary. ~linda


      1. He probably smiled because the name of the newspaper John sends me is the Kingston Whig-Standard, not the Gazette! 🤪🤪🤪

        Delighted you got to meet another Canadian! 🇨🇦
