Camino de Santiago

weekly photo challenge: serenity

Posted on

To show serenity, we automatically think of the countless sunrises and sunsets that have left us feeling serene.

And this one would be the clear winner.

We climbed strenuously uphill for a couple of hours. All the pain, all the hurt and all the weariness were zapped from us when we saw this sunrise over the French Pyrenees on the Camino de Santiago. This was only Day 1 of what was going to be the most amazing thing we ever did.

weekly photo challenge: yellow

Posted on

Show us what “yellow” means to you.

These are the words from the folks at the Daily Post for this week’s photo challenge.

We could hardly pass up the opportunity to share our first ever rubber duck race in Burgos, Spain during our Camino. The river was dotted yellow except for sections where the ducks got a little caught up with one another.

That was the close up!

And now for the view down the river.

Enjoy the weekend and week ahead!

So it is all over! Now that we have completed the Camino, we can share the final instalment to our photo essays. If you have not seen the other 2 parts, part 1 covers St Jean Pied de Port to Belorado and part 2 covers Belorado to Astorga.

This final series is from Astorga to Santiago de Compostela.

Hope you enjoy the photos.

And as we are now not focusing on walking the Camino, we are back in full swing in the blogosphere once more 🙂

weekly photo challenge: dreamy

Posted on

This week’s photo challenge theme is rather fitting for the morning we had on the Camino today as we came over the hills and looked down into the valleys. We were so high that the morning mist was below us and we could only describe it as DREAMY.

Have a good weekend, folks!
