This is the way.
Edinburgh to Santiago de Compostela
On two wheels,
With a kind push from my heels.
No more rent, only food to pay.
From Edinburgh to Newcastle
Cursing the hills
And screaming down the thrills.
Crossing from Holland to Belgium
Breakfast of champions in Lille, France
On the way to Paris
On the road again with a new pilgrim… Leaving good old Paris and heading to Montage, near Bordeaux.
Our house, in the middle of the field.
Two days on a very comfortable bed and now, rocky ground, hungry slugs, noises from the bushes…and the high speed train tracks.
A stop in Pamproux
A couple of stops on the way to grab some tasty apple, juicy grapes and soft peaches.
It’s great when the sun is shinning, but that also means MOSQUITOs !
After a week of non stop cycling we have finally reached Montage.
Enjoyed a cooked meal and a glass of St Emilion in a cosy house.
Wine, wine, wine….lots of wine.
From St Emilion, to Saint Jean Pieds de Port… there the Camino starts.
Never ask for advice from a walker if you are cycling.
Finally in Spain
The country with many wines, great tapas, colourful walls,
DESTINATION REACHED…SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA
After hills, aches
Dirty hands, broken brakes
We made it in one piece.
Working with the Ensamble Transatlantico de Folk Chileno now!
