Vila do Conde to Marinhas

Last night more pilgrims arrived: 2 Germans and an Englishman . . . all heading across to Barcelos and the traditional route.

Heading out along the coast, the Vila do Conde Povoa de Varzim conurbation goes on for quite a while. This part of Portugal is more populated and has a different feel. In Povoa I catch up with two young pilgrims, a Korean woman and an Italian man, who met in Australia a year ago and have been travelling together since.

At San Andre I am intrigued by a building housing a cafe . . . call in to find out more . . . Isabel tells me her husband Jose had the vision and built it when they returned from living in Canada. Just on the interesting side of kitsch for me . . . here it is . . . what do you think?

On through a horticultural area and a small forest before Fao and a lunch-stop . . . and a Vespa rally . . . to Marinhas and a pilgrim albergue, clean and comfy and donativo . . . only me so far . . .
