Baggage Service – Oct. 8, 2022

  • Portuguese Camino: Day 25 / A Guarda to Mougas
  • Distance: 12.9 miles / Total 350.5 miles
  • Time: 6 hours
  • Ascent: 737’ Decent: 772’
  • Weather: 62-72 degrees, clear & sunny

Not wanting to end the day with exhaustion and sore feet, I used a baggage service. It was easy enough to purchasing a $4 zipper cloth bag for the nonessential. I’ve risen to a new standard. Happy feet!

Sweet deal… €6 ($5.85) per transfer.
Pebble Painting.
With a 6:00am start, two people were ahead and four were behind me. Our headlights glowed like fireflies against the black sky.
Coastal Route.
Sadder times.

      1. Please, it’s simply a long walk. There are other versions of the Santiago de Compostelle that begin in Poland, Germany, Italy. It can begin from your front door in California. What’s nice is you finish the day with a place to sleep, a restaurant, and maybe a grocery store. Kinda like the Pacific Crest with convenience. ~linda


    1. Thanks Chuck. I want to enjoy every step. Less weight on my back makes a world of difference. No throbbing feet today 🥾. How’s your walking troop doing? You’re the best leader. ~linda


  1. Linda, you are living up to your adventurous nature and living life to the fullest. It never hurts to be open to try new experiences. At the end, it is your pilgrimage and no matter what, you have been making it memorable. Have been enjoying your wonderful blog entries capturing your pilgrimage journey. Hats off to you.


    1. Great note. See. Trying new experiences. I just point to food and chow down. I try different routing (not Camino way) based on GPS mapping. Sometimes short cuts. Sometimes winding on city streets. I’m pleased you are enjoying the blog. Are you still planning to do another Camino? ~linda


      1. I am hoping to do the Porto to Santiago someday. Maybe next September/October. However, will be taking my time and only doing maybe 15 km (10 miles) a day, so I can explore things along the way and enjoy the culture.


  2. Happy feet make for an enjoyable journey! Very ingenious to give this a try. We have really enjoyed following your pilgrimage.


    1. Many thanks for taking the time to read my daily memories. Writing takes time but it gives me a bit of distance to recollect the day. I kinda go into my shell and write. A private space in a public setting. ❤️~linda
