Tomar and beyond

We enjoyed walking to the castle and then by the river in Tomar. The castle was originally built in the 1200 by the moors and then taken over by the Templar’s. It was further added on over the centuries and is well preserved.

Yesterday we left Tomar for Calvinho, a tiny little village up in the hills with no restaurant and no Wi-Fi. There were five pilgrims in a converted school house alburgue. We were able to buy few vegetables and Pasta and had a nice home cooked meal.

Today we started early as it was mostly uphill and we wanted to avoid the heat. We are now settled in a nice place in Cortico after 16 km walk.

    My favorite dish…. Spaghetti and very delicious looking sauce. Too bad we can’t taste it. Good job Enayet.

    Beautiful sunrise pictures and that of Flowers and Grapes. Excellent views of the city of Tomas.

    Thanks Zaahir and Enayet.
