Traveling Nancy

Traveling around the world as far as I can go.

Augapesada to Negreira


Rose and I left this morning at about 9:00. We walked through more eucalyptus forests. We met up with Maureen and Mary (from Georgia). They have both been carrying ashes of loved ones and leaving them along the Camino. It was foggy, but not raining.

We did the 225 meter climb in 2.8 km from Augapesada to Trasmonte where we stopped for breakfast.

We passed the medieval bridge (which has been restored) in Ponte Maceira.

I still love the small villages and passing by a local man.

We arrived at Albergue San Jose at the beginning of Negreira just before the real rain and hunkered down (all in bottom bunks).. Today was less than 10 km, but tomorrow will be about 21 km.
We tried to go out to dinner tonight at about 6:30 because the rain had stopped. That was very silly of us. Dinner starts at 7:30. So we went to a bakery and a Supermarcarda. I bought a box of chicken soup mix, a small bag of pasta, an a small jar of pasta sauce. Made dinner in the kitchen at the Albergue.

Traveling has been a passion of Nancy Panitch's life and she loves seeing how people in other cultures live. Her travels have taken her to many places within the United States, Asia, Europe, South America, and Africa. Being around people inspires her and she has much gratitude for the kindred Souls that are joining together with her in body, mind, and heart. She moved from Chicago to Portland, Oregon in 1982. It was one of the best decisions of her life. While in Portland she stays very, VERY busy. She volunteers (Inter-Religious Action Network, Human Rights Council, & ushering for various theaters); attends a Unitarian Universalist church; goes hiking with groups (Cascade Prime Timers & Trails Club of Oregon) and also with individual friends. Book groups, movie group, and bridge groups occupy her time as well. Her quiet activities include yoga, knitting, Sudoku, and reading. She enjoys all of these activities, but making time to see her wonderful 4 grandchildren takes priority over it all. She is happy to share this blog and hopes to encourage others to travel.

  1. Nancy, I feel as if I have walked along with you on this very special journey. Thank you for sharing. And I agree – too special for tourist trotting as an add on. Looking forward to being with you in person. Fondly, Ann


  2. I’m right there with you…I miss it so! The life of the pilgrim suits me (with a few added creature comforts.) 🙂 Thanks for sharing, Nancy! Love to you.
