Cabo da Roca, Potugal. The westernmost point in continental Europe. #Travelstache  (at Cabo da Roca)

Back in Lisbon for a few days to organize my car insurance. Lisbon will forever be one of my favorite cities. I’ve been spending the days exploring local beaches and hanging with fellow adventurers. It seems like everyone at my hostel is traveling for at least 6 months. Another great thing about traveling in the off-season, you find many more travelers who are not just on vacation from their jobs. #Travelstache

Finisterre, Spain. In roman times this rocky peninsula was believed to be the end of the known world. #Travelstache  (at Faro de Finisterre)

3 days + 60 miles of hiking and we have reached the Atlantic Ocean! It was a good day. #Travelstache  (at Finisterra)

The Camino de Santiago is commonly used as a path for spiritual growth. Galicia, Spain. #Travelstache  (at Albergue Olveiroa)

We are currently hiking a section of the Camino de Santiago in northwestern Spain. 

"The Camino" is traditionally a Christian pilgrimage route, existing for over 1,000 years. There are many different routes, all ending at the Cathedral of Compostela de Santiago and marked with scallop shells along the way. The most popular route, "Camino Frances" stretches nearly 500 miles across northern Spain and takes about 1 month to complete. Last year over 200,000 people hiked the trail.

We only have 4 days, so we are hiking from the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela to the coastal village of Muxia (70 mi). #Travelstache  (at Oliveroa)

Last minute change of plans last night and we ended up driving to Spain. This morning we left our car in town and began hiking part of the Camino de Santiago. Today we crushed about 22 miles of the trail and are on our way to the coast. Only 50 miles to go… #Travelstache  (at Santiago De Compostela)
