Julie and I have decided to do the Camino de Santiago. There are many routes to Santiago, we are taking the “French Way”. On May 8, we will depart from St. Jean Pied de Port (France), hike over the Pyrenees into Spain. Then, we will walk the entire length of the Northern Spain to Santiago de Compostela. It will take us nearly 40 days. We will complete the walk on June 16. We’ll post a bit more about our decision to do “The Camino” before we leave, however once we head out we won’t be doing any posting. We’ve decided to go silent during the duration of the hike.
On Sunday, to prepare, Julie and I decided to take a hike up to Mount Tibidabo. There it is circled. I took this picture from the balcony of our apartment. It gives you a perspective of how far it is to there and back – a very walkable 22 kilometers.
There is a beautiful church and statue of Christ with outstretched arms over Barcelona. See pics below for a better view of the church. We can see it from our balcony of our apartment.
The hike was fantastic. It was a beautiful, sunny, spring day. We were amazed at the terrain and flora. It is so different just a few miles north of Barcelona. We could see, smell, and feel Springtime on the walk. Here are a few pics of our adventure.
