The Cawley Camino is back! Pack your walking shoes and best smile to join Phil and the most intrepid team of Today FM listeners as they journey all the way from Porto, in Portugal, to Santiago de Compostela in Galicia.
2019 marks the fifth edition of the Cawley Camino and here’s where the team will be heading:
WALK THE PORTUGUESE COASTAL CAMINO FROM PORTO – 5th September 2019
This year Phil and a team of walking enthusiasts will take on the challenge of the Coastal Camino from Porto. This is a stunning trail that takes you from the lively town of Porto to the quiet coastal paths. The terrain of this route is relatively easy with little elevation in the seaside towns.
Enjoy stopping in friendly towns, meeting fellow pilgrims and tasting delicious local dishes, including fresh Bacalau fish and other sweet treats.
Those looking to raise funds for a good cause can join this trip and fundraise for the Irish Hospice Foundation.
WALK THE PORTUGUESE COASTAL CAMINO FROM VIGO – 12th September 2019
The Cawley Camino team of intrepid pilgrims will be tackling the Portuguese Coastal Camino from Vigo in 2019. The trek will take the team to the heart of the Rias Baixas of Galicia, famous for its white wine and delicious seafood. Fantastic views of Vigo Bay will kick start the adventure before taking to the vineyard-lined country tracks of Southern Galicia.
“At this stage I have completed quite a few Camino treks but have yet to take the most scenic of detours via the coastal route to Santiago. A few of last years walkers did this one and recommended I go for it. We will start in Vigo where i visited on my bike last year. Lets just say the Tapas in this town is well worth the walk. Pontevedra is another great Spanish town to experience Spanish hospitality on out way to Santiago. I’m planning an extra night in Santiago at the end to allow for a trip to Finisterre (end of the world) or a Tapas tour. I’m also on the hunt for a bar to do my famous “Disco Trek” on one of the nights. Hope you can make it on September 6th.” – Phil Cawley.
