Reaching the end of the Camino…
The last day was the day I got lost for the first time on the Camino.
A private room and delightful tapas next to a running river made for a relaxing day. Plus, had an adventure eating Paella outside of Valencia!
More than halfway through the Camino Inglés, this day was more easygoing due to having a reservation at a private lodge in Sigüeiro. I joined up with my Betanzos tortilla dining partners for part of the walk, and they shared some interesting gossip about cheating pilgrims!
Could Hospital de Bruma really be called a town? In contrast to the real towns of the past two days, the third stop on the Camino Inglés featured the albergue, a single restaurant, a church up the road, and little else.

My favorite day on the Camino Inglés, this was a day where a rather frightful early morning start led to a pleasant walk mainly surrounded by nature.
Arriving in the town of Pontedeume, I had fish wrapped in a donut shape, and probably the best empanada of the trip.
Taking the long way around an inlet, spending the whole day only to reach a town which I passed by on the bus in 15 minutes the day before!

Eating Galician octopus at its source.
A kind of ho-hum town turned out to be the home of a revelatory meal, one whose memory will surely stick around for a long time.
