Santiago de Compostela

Hola,

Yeah i know, it’s been a very long time oops:) I have been very busy with school so i couldn’t write but… i’ve been travelling lately. Last spring i’ve been to Santiago de Compostela and last summer i have been to  Ibiza again and to Germany 🙂

It was very fun ❤

So, i went to Spain last spring because my uncle lives there and me and my parents wanted to visit him. We stayed in Paredela, a little town but so beautiful, wow i loved it ❤

We flew from Brussel to Santiago and the flight took 2 hours.
At the airport my uncle had been waiting for us. And when we were driving to his house we stopped at a super cute bar: ”Casa Verde”. Throughout the whole restaurant were T-shirts, caps and stuff from pilgrims who had walked the Camino.
I also wrote my name on the wall ❤

When we arrived at my uncle’s house we hiked with the dog of my uncle, Isha, she’s sooo cute!!

My room in my uncle’s house was so cute, when i opened my window i could see pilgrims walking and talking in Spanish, i really loved it.
We also visited the neigbours of my uncle and they were so nice!! They offered us food and drinks and they kept giving us food haha if we said like no thank you they were like oh eat, eat!! comer! They were so nice and grateful, i loved it ❤ Everyone gives each other a hug and pretends like you are family. And all the food we got was homemade. It was really an experience to get to know these wonderful people.

The next day we drove to Santiago de Compostela , it’s the capital of Galicia.

Santiago de Compostela is one of three holy cities in the world where Catholics can earn absolution of their sins by making a pilgrimage. (The other two holy cities are Rome and Jerusalem.) On a typical day, about 600 pilgrims arrive in Santiago de Compostela on foot or horseback. The daily average jumps to more than 2,700 in a Holy Year.

The kathedrale was magical here are some pictures:

Here are some pictures of the house from my uncle:

We had a stopover in Barcelona but our flight was delayed sooo we missed the flight to Brussel. But i didn’t mind because i could now go shopping at the airport of Barcelona haha 😉

 

Hasta la proxima!!

muchos besos,

When i went to Ibiza we went one day to Formentera, you can just go from Ibiza to Formentera with the ferrie.
