We flew from O’Hare to Madrid, and on to Santiago where we picked up John, our guide. A bus ride north to Ferrol, and where we start our pilgrimage. Tomorrow we begin with a relatively comfortable walk along the coast of about 12 kilometers. I need to upload a converter to miles, or just have Mark do the math.

Ferrol is a lovely city of about 70,000 people. Many pedestrian streets to wander through. We will be walking quite a ways through it for grr start of our journey.

Our first hostel is very nice and our room has a balcony.

The weather is perfect in the 70’s during the day and 50’s at night.

Now for a good nights rest and then to begin our journey.

I’ll explain about the stamps and mileage require to get our certificate at the end in my blog tomorrow.
