On the Camino de Santiago, lots of folks head off to a place called Finisterre after reaching Santiago. Camino de Santiago, The Way, PrincesasDelCamino, Alison Chino, MacsAdventure, Chasing Daylight

There is a tradition of going to the sea to unburden yourself of your belongings.

It’s a second and more final ending to your journey.

But we really just wanted a day by the sea.

So when we met a lady on a train to Sarria who told us that A Coruna was beautiful and much easier to get to by train than Finisterre, we took her advice, bought train tickets for six euros and headed off to find the sun, the sand and the waves.

Once we reached A Coruna, it took us a little while to actually find the sea.

We ended up walking through the lovely old town of A Coruna.

When we finally found the sea, the clouds had rolled in and we were feeling some raindrops.

But we were determined to have our day on the beach.

And we had snacks. So we could be patient.

And pretty soon the sun came out!

And we had a gorgeous afternoon in the sun after all.

It was happily ever after for sure.

Our journey along The Camino de Santiago was made possible by Macs Adventure, who found us the most wonderful places to sleep and made our giant suitcases magically appear in our rooms each night.
