    Camino Frances 8

    August 10, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Von Burgos ging es gestern wieder vor dem Sonnenaufgang los Richtung Hontanas. Nach ein paar Kilometern habe ich die Meseta betreten, eine Hochebene, wo kaum Bäume wachsen. Durch diese Hochebene werde ich in den nächsten Tagen laufen und hoffen, dass das Wetter erträglich bleibt. Gestern war es (erfreulicherweise) sehr bewölkt. Allerdings war der sehr kräftige Wind von vorne und der Seite ziemlich anstrengend. Aber nach 32 km bin ich gestern Nachmittag in Hontanas angekommen und habe den Rest des Tages die Beine hoch gelegt. 😊
    Heute bin ich dann die 30 km von Hontanas nach Boadilla del Camino und der Wind hat sich glücklicherweise verzogen. 😃

    First two days of the Meseta

    May 26, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 6 °C

    Some people think that this part of the Camino is boring. In fact today I talked briefly with a woman who commented on my cheeriness, then said how boring the landscape was. All that I could see was and endless blue sky and picture perfect clouds. Not to mention a gorgeous field of poppies!

    Day 30c. Formista, Camino

    September 3, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    The long steep hills that were a feature of the morning took their toll in this last 5km section. Susie powered on but Ron's right knee started complaining that it was rest time. (Unusual as it had never complained before.) He struggled on past the canal that paralleled the trail and got to the first Frómista Bar just in time. After a beer while Susie had an ice block he managed to drag himself the last 900m.
    He was a bit concerned for his knee but after a shower, washing the clothes and a little lie down all was back to normal!
    Hostal San Pedro was really good. Our room faced the church and several restaurant bars.

    Boadilla del Camino

    June 6, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ☁️ 18 °C

    28 km, diesmal herrlicher Sonnenschein ☀️ und kein Regen..... die Landschaft herrlich, weite Felder, Weizen🌾🌾 wohin das Auge reicht und unendlich viel roter Klatschmohn, eines meiner Lieblingsblumen. Das ist so unwahrscheinlich schön.... mir fehlen die Worte.
    Zudem so viele Störche, wie ich sie noch nie gesehen habe. Für mich bisher die schönste Strecke, die ich gelaufen bin.

    Am Abend dann eine Herberge zum davonlaufen, an sich alles ganz schön.... aber zwei Herbergsväter, die unfreundlicher nicht sein könnten 🤨. Die Dopoelstockbetten kurz vorm zusammenfallen und das Klo war quasi mitten im Raum. Die ganze Nacht neben dem Geschnarche auch noch die Geräusche kleiner und großer Geschäfte zu hören ist dann doch zuviel 🤯😱.

    Naja, so war die Nacht kurzweilig, manchmal erschreckend und leicht nervig.

    The Camino Provides ...work

    September 22, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Many of the small towns we pass through owe their existence to the pilgrims. Populations of 70 quadruple for a few hours each evening and then empty out by 8 AM again so the albergues can clean and ready themselves again for the onslaught at 2 PM. How they make enough on 10 euro beds and meals is a mystery.Read more

    Boadilla del Camino

    September 23, 2016 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    We left Hontanas at 6.15am and walked about 28kms to Boadilla. We're staying in the fantastic En el Camino albergue, one of our favourites from last time.

    It's pretty hot, but we managed fine. We stopped for breaks in Castrojeriz and Itero de la vega.

    Place and pace

    September 22, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    The Way, right now, is the PLACE for me. The terrain on the Meseta is remarkably familiar to me -- sun-baked Southern Alberta without the coulees. Mostly flat but at times we hike up and out of a broad valley to walk past endless fields, the wheat long since harvested and swaths of sunflowers with their heads in quiet and permanent repose, awaiting the reaping.

    Coleen and I are fast walkers, often overtaking and passing other pilgrims with an "Hola and Buen Camino". One peregrina likened us to the strong easterly wind that was at our backs all day. It is our PACE, certainly not a race, and our powerful strides make me feel alive ... strong.

    Castrojeriz to Boadilla - 20 kms

    October 13, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    Well, sooner or later this was bound to happen. No, I did not sleep with my pack on...must worse. It appears that I got some bad milk in my coffee and threw it all up within five minutes. Three more times already and I hope I've got this stuff out of my system, but I need some solid food to feed the furnace.

    Given this, I was still able to finish 20 kms and found a nice hotel room for 25 euro. Been chilling out and resting.

    Did not get my usual early start and it was warmer than the past several days so that was good. This being the third day walking the Meseta and quite frankly the scenery was about the same as yesterday. Shortly after leaving Castrojeriz, the trail started up a rather imposing hill with a concrete walkway down the other side. Seeing the sun come up was nice and you can gain an appreciation for the vertical distance.

    So I staggered into Boadilla and am hopeing for a better day tomorrow

    Boadilla del Camino

    May 14, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

    We stayed at the Casa En El Camino albergue. As it was recommended by our guidebook, we were excited to see what it was like. Embedded in a tiny, crumbling town, the albergue was one of the few establishments around. We spent nearly the whole afternoon and evening within the perimeter of the walled off interior. The art work and randomness, along with dozens of roaming, dazed pilgrims, gave the place the feel of a new age festival. Dinner was vegetable lentils from the can and hot chocolate, which only augmented the festival feeling.Read more

    Who said the Meseta was boring?!? Great walk today, enjoying the birds and slightly boring landscapes whilst singing and dancing my way through the kilometres 😍☀
