    Camino Frances 5

    August 4, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    Die 8. Etappe ist geschafft. 😀
    In den letzten beiden Tagen habe ich täglich ungefähr 28 km zurück gelegt. Der Weg führte mich dabei von Los Arcos über Sansol, Torres del Rio, Viana, Logrono, Navarrete und Ventosa nach Najera.
    Auf dem gestrigen Weg von Los Arcos nach Logrono habe ich übrigens die Region Navarra verlassen und befinde mich nun im weltbekannten Weinanbaugebiet La Rioja. Weinkenner kommen hier sicher auf ihre Kosten aber ich bleibe lieber bei Wasser 😉.

    Fith stop - Nájera

    May 4, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Logroño -> 28km -> Nájera
    Today was a challenging one - a second long day in a row. Pushing myself was necessary, especially the last 2 km when you just don't see the end of it! Aching from the waste down. Tomorrow will be more chillRead more

    P.S. to Nájera

    September 12, 2018 in Spain ⋅ 🌙 22 °C

    Just had to add a bit more about the afternoon and dinner, we did go exploring, though by mid afternoon it is very hot and glaringly bright...but found the jewel of Nájera - the Monasterio Santa Maria de la Real, with its church, burial place of kings, queens and knights of Navarra (this must have all once been part of Navarra, and in fact Nájera was the capital of the kingdom of Navarra in the 11th and 12th centuries). And there is a beautiful cloister was abused (used as army barracks, munition storage, prison and even a bull ring!) over the years but in the late 1800s was taken over by Franciscan monks and restored. Very beautiful. Then we had a glass of wine and kindle time, wandered along the river a bit, and waited till dinner time - 7.30. The hotel sends us round to a little restaurant round the corner which we remembered.

    Only one drama...we were sitting, with wine and water, no food yet, when there was a loud thumping on a door....the one very busy waitress was elsewhere so Amr did the rescue thing - someone couldn’t unlock the toilet Amr released her...big commotion, and the waitress came to thank Amr with a big flourish and knocked his glass of vino Tinto all over him! Oh dear, she died of mortification, Amr took off his shirt (luckily he had a respectable black t-shirt underneath, and went back to the hotel to hang up the rinsed shirt (5 mins away).... Finally we sat down to a delicious meal - white beans with shell fish, sort of a soup, a plate of leeks, and we both had the most delicious stuffed peppers...
    So all was well, and now ready to hit the sack, even if only 9.30!

    Tomorrow we walk about 21 kms to Santo Domingo de la Calzada, where the famous chooks are in the cathedral. Life is good.

  • Day120


    June 29, 2018 in Spain ⋅ 🌧 75 °F

    We walked another 18 miles through vineyards today to Nájera. When we got into town, the woman at the market told us it was Fiesta San Pedro. We got to witness the most amazing celebration by a town I have ever seen! The Spanish people know how to celebrate! I added a small video snippet of some of it. Such a happy and joyous time.

    We met up with our Camino friends this evening to eat outside at a bar, but the the skies opened up with thunderstorms, and so the town people in the bar brought us inside and treated us like family...good times!

    Another “feel good” moment for today: We were getting tired as we crested our last climb today, but we were greeted by a wonderful man playing a guitar. It lifted our spirits 🙂. This same man (we found out later) left all of his guitars and other instruments and ran down the trail for 10 minutes to give a woman her money belt she had left behind. She shared with us how she cried with gratitude because she had $500 euros in it. She said she will never forget it.

    Tomorrow is a little bit shorter day, and I am sure my feet will be happy about that. We are going to Santo Domingo.

    Good walk to Nájera

    September 12, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    Another great day! Cloudless, cool and crisp as we set off at 8.20am and hot and sweaty when we arrived here at about 1 o’clock, having walked 17.6 kms. The itinerary said 17.4, so was accurate this time! We walked through vineyards and more vineyards, all laden with grapes. Yesterday someone tasted one and said it was sweet, but today someone said tart...not sugary...I think the grape harvest is October usually, so assume they are just needing a few more weeks. They are mostly red, but every now and then there are a few rows of white...and yesterday we saw some labelled Tempranillo blanco....didn’t know Tempranillo could be white.

    Anyway, a lovely walk, not too demanding, but enough to feel hot and ready for a beer on arrival. We did that, before heading to the hotel - stopped at a bar and had a snack as well. Now in this lovely hotel (known from before) and washing and soon will be ready to hit the town and see some of the sights. Last time we had walked the 30 kms from Logroño and didn’t have the energy to do any this is good!

    We were in step with 2 Swedish women today for a while, which was fun, but I found that I got quite breathless having an animated conversation while walking! They were having a drink at the bar when we arrived, having sprinted on ahead after a while! And there is an Australian woman from Gold Coast in our hotel...walking alone. So many people from so many places, and the inevitable bike riders zooming past and being annoying!! This wifi seems good, so will see how we go with photos.

    Najera 28 km

    September 8, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Heute war es eher eine Flache Etappe. Unterdessen kenne ich viele Leute, und da ich eher schneller Laufe quatsche ich mal da und mal da. Dadurch geht die Wegstrecke sehr schnell zu ende. Habe unterwegs einem Radpilger noch das Fahrrad repariert.Read more

    Najera, La Rioja

    May 18, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    Starting here today, jumped a stage by bus, and happily reencountered Neii, my pilgrim friend from Brazil. So we walked together in the cold rain, 16 km, to Ciruena, a strange town which seems mostly abandoned—built recently but a ghost town. Perhaps a result of the 2008 financial collapse?Read more

    Stage 9: Navarrete to Nájera

    October 6, 2016 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Date: 10/06/2016
    Distance: 17 km, 10.5 mi

    We are in the Spanish vino country now; vineyards as far as can see. Shortest distance day so far on the Camino, by plan and by need. My feet (little toes, specifically) are beat up, my ankle is sore from aggravating a previous injury. All part of being 50 and having led a very active life, I suppose. Zach didn't mind a short walking day.Read more

    Day 8. Najera

    September 12, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    Arriving in Najera, another beautiful place. After breakfast in Ventosa I was off, got a good 15kms in today, so slowing picking back up again, its my "way" and that's what I keep learning, listening to myself, not others and having an exceptional experience.

    We are staying in a beautiful little hostel tonight, with our own shower and a courtyard that overlooks the mountain cliffs.

    On to out next destination tomorrow, just a short 20kms so I think that the last few days have been a good build up for me.

    Until then Buen Camino

    May 8, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Relatively flat 10 miles of walking made for an easy day. We've come 120 miles total and I would feel more of a sense of accomplishment if I weren't sitting in a waiting room, practicing how to say "my ear hurts" in Spanish. Good news on all fronts, the general md we met with (who used Google translate to explain my prognosis ✅) said it should clear up on its own and there we weren't charged for the visit. Estupendo! We spent the afternoon reading in a great area by the slowly trickling stream, buying groceries, dining at cafes (as a vegetarian, mixed salad is always my main course) and chatting with Danni, the Australian girl we'd befriended a few days back.

    In an act of indulgence, we stayed in a private double room with a "una cama de matrimonial" or marriage bed. It was the first time we slept in a bed larger than a single (often doubles are just two singles pushed together and it leaves a gap in the center) and I slept 9 hours, waking without an alarm at 6am. 😴😄
