Hola Alissa, We just wanted to let you know that our Camino de Santiago de Compostela was a super wonderful experience for us, including the J-girls from Osaka. We enjoyed every single day of the Camino – delicious picnic lunches, comfortable lodging with history and character and hospitality, food and wine, and of course the local beers! Kumiko, Akiko and Midori went home with memories they will cherish for a long, long time – this trip was totally different from any trips they (and we) had made- because the trip itself had a specific objective, and when it was accomplished at the Santiago, our hearts were filled with that sense of accomplishment. I have no doubt that every one of us left Santiago as a happy camper. As for our family, thanks to your recommendation we took bus from Santiago to Viana do Castelo, then to Porto. Both rides were comfortable and easy, and of course we had some great times in each city. Thank you so very much for your great help! Please send our best regard to our wonderful leaders, Sol and Carol, and the excellent bus driver Manuel. They all did the outstanding jobs!
