Aware that Australians have had some difficult times the past 2 years, we have been missing them on the Camino. On a recent extended stay at the wonderful La Cala Pilgrims Inn in Oia on the Camino Coastal Portuguese we met a friendly Aussie woman, Xanthe, and her daughter, Poppy. First OZ encounters for me on the Camino since back in August, 2019. A few days later at La Cala a solo woman pilgrim arrived.
I wanted to post this info but forgot to get a picture. Then yesterday on the streets of Muxia I bumped into Xanthe and Poppy in Muxia not far from the 0 Mile Marker. As commonly occurs, the Camino provided.
