Galicia Round-Up

Galicia is beautiful. Small and dainty, very green, very traditional.

I ate octupus, Gallegan soup, 'tit cheese' and Gallegan bread; and octupus, Gallegan soup and tit cheese and Gallegan bread :)

Although the sight of octupus (especially it's tenticles) made me want to throw-up because although it's dead on your plate, it's easy to imagine it alive and breathing heavily through it's ugly pores, I really liked it.

Was in A Coruña for two days, Santiago de Compostela for a day, and Finisterre (the end of the world!) for a day.

Incase you were wondering, there is really nothing 'at the end of the world', except a steel boot and a rather ugly lighthouse; but what the hell - it's the end of the world!

Here are some photos. Stories to follow!
