Camino Inglés 2017

In 2017 I suddenly decided to walk the Camino Inglés again, 8 years after the first time, which was my first ever Camino. The Inglés gets its name from the English who would arrive at Coruña or Ferrol by boat and then walk south to Santiago. Our walk from Ferrol was probably about 100+ kms – we walked across the bridge to Fene rather than walk via Neda, and we cut the long etapa from Betanzos to Bruma in half. The walk has since been rerouted and That Hill (and Bar Julia) is no longer part of the official trail, though I believe you can still find it and walk it. Please check before you try though … it is a beautiful walk in places and being so close to the sea makes it different from the Camino Frances and other inland routes. I wouldn’t mind walking it again!
