CAMINO SURVIVAL TIPS #2 (Margarida and Francisco, Portugal.)


“We always say ‘The last three kilometres… those are the longest’, but this time it was too much; they seemed to last forever. Today’s was the next-to-last stage, so we had to stop at Pedrouzo. When we finally realized that it wasn’t possible we hadn’t arrived yet, we were only fifteen kilometres away from Santiago so, by that time, we had already walked the infamous three, and five more.

Our advice is to be really really careful when approaching Pedrouzo; the town entry is not properly signposted, so it’s surprisingly easy to just walk past it. Apparently, it happens to a lot of people.”

“Siempre decimos ‘Los tres últimos kilómetros… esos sí que son largos’, pero esta vez ya nos parecía demasiado; no se acababan nunca. La de hoy era la penúltima etapa, así que teníamos que parar en Pedrouzo. Cuando nos dimos cuenta habíamos caminado los famosos tres kilómetros y cinco más: estábamos a quince de Santiago.

Nuestro consejo es que pongais cuidado al llegar a Pedrouzo, la entrada al pueblo está muy mal señalizada y es muy muy fácil seguir de largo. Parece ser que le pasa a mucha gente”
