    Let de classic begin!

    Yesterday night I fell asleep slightly overheated due to stress over bedbug panic. Martijn from Belgium was sure he'd seen bedbug traces and so all four of us felt slightly stressed as Mieke also from Belgium read out all you need to know about bedbugs. I was a bit affected by this as I'd already heard three stories of people who had had bedbugs and its no joy...
    Luckily, sofar so good and this morning I got up before dawn and walked towards Oviedo, my last stop on the Camino de Norte. I drank coffee in the last town before Oviedo and intended to take the train there to avoid the walk along the main roads, but a lovely man named Jesus in the bar offered me a lift in his coche.
    Here I checked into a way too luxurious and way too expensive hotel with a large double bed, lots of towels and a bubble bath... I wanted to treat myself one more time before the mountains and the promise of a primitive way.
    The camino primitivo is the first ever camino and I really feel the Spanish regard it as a bit more special than the rest. It's rather mountainous, but I feel strong and ready for a change and a challenge!
    I had lots of time, so I wandered the streets of Oviedo and bought some new outdoor gear and a new credencial. What a wonderful city and what a spoilt and happy girl I am. Can't wait for the beaty that awaits tomorrow!

    Day 47: Time Out in Oviedo

    April 3, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    A day off from travelling today, though not a day for relaxing! Spent most of the morning on Skype with family, but then spent the rest of the afternoon writing and editing video. One of the downsides of travelling fairly quickly to all these World Heritage places is that I suddenly develop a very large backlog of places that need video!

    But I managed to get four done over the course of the day, so I caught up a bit. Just in time to visit a couple more tomorrow!

    Otherwise very little to report. Had a supermarket pizza for dinner which I accidentally burned the crap out of while waiting for the timer to go off. Thankfully a supermarket with replacement pizzas was only a few minutes walk away!

    Pilgerfahrt...?

    August 19, 2018 in Spain ⋅ 🌙 16 °C

    Pilgerfahrt, Moment, was, wie...und warum überhaupt "Fahrt"? Also, das kam so...

    Josef, der Freund eines Freundes in Barcelona erzählte mir vor einigen Monaten, dass er den Camino Primitivo mit dem Rad mit dreien seiner Freunde fahren wollte. Insgesamt 6 Tagesetappen, insgesamt rund 360 KM, eigentlich überschaubar. Alle drei hätten aber aus verschiedenen Gründen abgesagt. "Josef, wann willst du denn fahren?", fragte ich ihn. Er sagte ab dem 19.8. und manchmal will es der Zufall so, das war der letzte Urlaubstag von uns in Mogro (in der Nähe von Santander, an der Atlantikküste Kalabriens). Die Tour sollte in Oviedo starten, als rund 2 Autostunden von unserem Ferienort entfernt. Viele Details später und fantastische Reiseplanung von Josef später treffen wir uns nun tatsächlich am 18.8. in Oviedo im Hotel. Ich habe Josefˋs Rad von Barcelona mitgebracht und werde selbst die Tour auf meinem MTB fahren. Mein Crossie ist noch in Frankfurt, so habe ich kurzerhand mein MTB mit in den Urlaub genommen und da stehen nun die beiden Räder im Hotel in Oviedo und Morgen gehts dann auch schon los.Read more
