    Barcelona, Sagrada Familia and Beach

    September 14, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    After the driving the day before so many kilometers, I was looking forward to get some ☀.
    The Sagrada Familia is always impressive and something really special. I heard about the long waiting lines and that you better have to book an online ticket. Even they were booked out for that day. I took is as a hint as I anyway wanted to be outside in the sun.
    I asked people if they wanted to draw their dream. But all people were so stressed in getting a ticket, that nobody was in the mood of resting a minute. That really reminded me to Monaco where Noone wanted to draw something.
    I had been living in Barcelona a few years ago, working as a car designer. That's why I did not have the "pressure" of doing sightseeing as I know the city quite well.
    So I could go really relaxed (by bike) to barcelonetta to the city Beach, what I really enjoyed.

    Valencia, my favourite building, ever!

    September 13, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    I know these buildings from my time, when I had been working as a car designer.
    It was often used as a background for new showcars as it looks so futuristic. And I am really impressed if I stand in reality in front of them!
    Could be taken for a James Bond movie and everyone would say :"Nice 3D animation!", haha

    Towards Valencia, Hurracane

    September 13, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    I had to drive a lot of kilometers. From Gibraltar in the evening to Barcelona in 2 days. That's why I had the lovely breakfast while driving, haha. Look at the Foto.
    Some highways were closed because of something. I got annoyed by that because the Navi ran crazy and always wanted to send me back. When I was online, I read at Google maps : closed because of flood.
    Later I heard, that because of the hurracane and the flooding some people even died.
    So, my console to their families. I was not aware of that. Friends of mine sent me Fotos of the flooding taken from German television/news. They asked me if I am still alive, because I was exactly at that time in exactly this region. Probably I was lucky for driving at a good time. Only while I was camping I heard the wind and rain, but I was did not feel it as do severe.

    Day 5, horrible night

    September 1, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    The night was horrible.
    My tooth was aching and I could not sleep. I can not imagine the last years when I felt so much pain. It felt like someone is nailing a nail in your jaw, but not for seconds. For hours. And the head feels like exploding. I slept maybe 2 hours.
    Anyway. We stood up at 6.30h and began walking the most strenuous part of the whole trail. 3hours uphill to a monastery.
    The way down at the trail called "stones and water" (Piedras y Aguas) was the most pleasant we had.
    At a small restaurant we had good and cheap food.
    Finally we arrived at one of these official, public albergues, where are about 40 people in one room.
    Today : 33km

    Day 4 at the Camino

    August 31, 2019 in Spain ⋅ 🌙 21 °C

    Same procedure as every day. Alarm clock at 6.30h, but I woke up at 5.15h as at that time the first pilgrims get up. We are now already in the 100km radius of Santiago and there are more pilgrims. You even find more improvised "shop", selling coffee, fruits and souvenirs out of their car.
    We decided to go the "camino espiritual", which takes 1 or 2 days longer than the normal route, but is less crowded. After the forth day, you already feel the 120km in your bones and feet and it is almost the general topic of the pilgrims who has which injuries or "damages".
    We stay at a small, pittoresque fishing village.
    Interesting route: the yellow arrows of the Camino wanted to guide us through the water. Later we found out, that at the right time the water has gone because of the tide.
    The "youth" is buying drinks at the supermarket to get prepared for Saturday evening.

    My birthday in a monastery

    August 29, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    So, today is my second day at the Camino de Santiago. It is actually my birthday and it is strange, because - I think - since I am 15 I always have celebrated or at least experienced my birthday at midnight the day before.
    Not here at the Camino. We went to bed yesterday at 23.30h.
    The Camino today was very pleasant. Again nice scenery along the coast. A good lunchbreak with good food at a restaurant, where we were served local Spanish food with squids and paella.
    Then we passed by a beach and we looked really like from a different world with our pilgrim backpacks among all the surfers and half naked people at the beach. I called a monastery to reserve a place to sleep, but the guy at the phone told me not to arrive after 19.00, otherwise they would be closed. So after a quick swim in the breaking waves and ripcurls, we just bought a bottle of Portwine and almost had to run steep uphill to arrive in time. On the top of the hill, we got rewarded at the church/monastery with a perfect view of the coastline and beaches.
    When Jorge, the guy who let us fill in the registration form, has seen my date of birth he had to smile. Later he gave us fresh grapes and fruits, what was really good. A bit later a girl from Poland arrived and she wondered how be were carrying the heavy bottle of wine uphill. We invited her for a glass and I explained that it is my birthday. Now - big surprise: it was her birthday too!
    We shared some food and wine and were chatting about life and the Camino. She also has drawn her dream on paper and I gave her some sketching advices.
    Good night! In 6 hours we have to wake up to be ready for the next 30 kilometer.

    Santiago di Compostela

    August 20, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Stunning view from my camper van of the lighthouse at finisterre.
    Then visited the cathedral di Santiago di Compostela. All a bit touristic but I like when all the pilgrims come together and are happy to have done the Camino. I was at a "Misa", which was in another church, because the famous one is under cobstruction. I met 2 German girls, who - after the misa- were drawing their dreams.
    On the main square, where are most of the pilgrims it wa easy to ask for people to draw something.
    When the group started drawing, the kids appeared and asked if they can also draw sth.

    Dreams of pilgrims and surfers

    August 19, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Today was actually my first kind of "free" day since weeks. The last days I had to hurry up, because I have to be on Tuesday, 20.8. in our airbnb villa, because on Wednesday starts a conference (for workshop facilitators like me, where we want to invent new games and ideas to make workshops more creative).
    Now, that I know, that I will reach Porto in time, I could relax a bit. Anyway I had to finish an illustration for a German customer. And I could not imagine a better place to "work"! I mean, sitting in my mobile workplace with the view of the sea and sun, watching the surfers at the rip curls from time to time. Can it be better?
    For the draw-your-dream-mission it was also very good. Early in the morning I met 2 German pilgrim ladies, on their "Camino de Santiago" who liked to draw their dreams.
    During the day, although or maybe because of it was my free day and all surfers here at the mobile home parking are so relaxed, and I was relaxed as well, THEY asked me, if they were "allowed" to draw somethung.
    I Iiked it a lot, because it were so completely different people and all had completely different dreams. Have a look!
