If you are following our blog from the beginining you might remember that the Association ADAYEUS shared a meal with us in 2014, in Albergue Ponte Ferreira. You can see the entry we did for it in our blog, in este enlace. That day they had ended a stage of their Primitive Way.
They are currently doing the French Way on weekend stages, so we were very surprised to get their call asking if they could end one of their stages, near Palas de Rei, by driving to Ferreira in their bus to have a paella with us! It would be on April 1st, our 2017 season opening day. We said we would be pleased to have them back, but this time it would have to be in Albergue A Nave, as the other albergue, besides still being closed, was not big enough to host the 55 of them.
Here are some of the few pictures we could take this time (you can see them in bigger size by clicking on them):
We hope you enjoyed your time with us this time again. See you soon!
Today we had 26 members of the Association of Amigos de la Cueva de Covadonga (“Friends of the Cave of Covadonga”, in English) for lunch with us at Albergue Ponte Ferreira. They are walking the Primitive Way from Oviedo, and today they did an amazing 39km: 27km from Lugo to our albergue, in Ferreira, plus another 12km after taking a break with us for a wonderful lunch with varied entries, salad, a tasty paella and wine, plus dessert, coffee and a “chupito” (shot with the local liquor). In case all this was not enough, they also had a wonderful weather that made for an incredible day in the Camino! 🙂
Here are some pics:
Buen Camino our friends, we will be waiting for your visit on your next Primitive Way!
Today we had the visit of our friends from ADAYEUS, who stopped for lunch with us in their Primitive Way to Santiago. It was nice sharing some time and laughs with them!
We want to dedicate a especial greeting to Carlos, and thank him for the nice songs he dedicated to Paloma, the cook of today’s paella. Have a look at the photos beneath, and nearly at the end you’ll find the video of one of the songs. Carlos is nearly 80 years old! 🙂
Edited April 28th 2014: ADAYEUS has updated its website to include information about the route of the day they had lunch in our albergue!: https://asausac.wordpress.com/camino-de-santiago/camino-de-santiago-primitivo-2014/6o-etapa-san-vicente-do-burgo-vilarmaior-de-negral/. Thank you for your kind words our friends!
Today we had 36 pilgrims for lunch at Albergue Ponte Ferreira: they are walking the Primitive Way in a pilgrimage organized by their Association, the Asociación de Amigos del Camino de Santiago de Estella (Navarra, Spain). This association is the most ancient one in Spain in relation to the Way of St. James, and only one other association in the world is older than them: the Société des Amis de Saint-Jacques de Compostelle de París.
Here are some images of the group enjoying their paella, and a video of some of the pilgrims as they sang while they waited for their deserved meal 🙂
