Tonight I leave for Galicia on the trenhotel – “Train Hotel”. After an overnight ride across Spain to the Atlantic Coast, we will arrive in Galicia, the westernmost Spanish autonomous community perched right above Portugal.
The city we’re staying in, Santiago de Compostela, is the famous final destination of the Camino de Santiago, a pilgrimage trail from southern France almost to the Spanish Atlantic coast. Galicia is yet another Spanish place with its own language, gallego, which is most closely related to Portuguese.
We’ve heard it’s a gorgeous place, so photos will be sure to appear post-trip!
