  • Day33

    We are spoilt with these flat walks...still on the Maseta but this will end soon after León I think. We left leisurely at 8.10, and the searing heat of yesterday afternoon had transformed to delicious cool, and we walked out of Sahagún almost liking the city! It is not beautiful, but we do cross a lovely Roman bridge as we leave. This is an intensely agricultural area....in the distance the silo is taller than any of the church towers!! But today didn’t feel quite as far away from civilisation....there were main roads and trucks on the horizon, but we walked along a little path next to a very minor road, hardly any cars, and with a shade-providing line of trees, and we didn’t even work up a sweat. Extremely comfortable and still interesting.

    So here we are, before 1 pm, in a tiny place, washed and refreshed. Our washing is hanging out on our balcony (hope no one looks up from the bar and sees it!)...and tomorrow is another fairly easy, flat walk of about 20 kms I think, and then we walk into León on Wednesday and stay for 2 nights!

    Day 19. El Burgo Ranero

    September 23 in Spain

    Walked a little further than our destination town today and we have arrived and So Burgo Ranero. Bitten alive on the walk today and feeling it now, but seen some sheep and a few other things today.

    Until We Meet Again

    September 25, 2017 in Spain

    Some familiar faces that have shared the trail or a common meal with us are leaving The Way. Andres catches a train back to Madrid for work, Barbara and Francisca (and their doggie pawed chaos tubes) return to Italy, the Belgians - Rosette, Eric, & Adelan - will finish in Leon, Jean-Luis and his wife have returned to their farm near Orloron St.Marie, we've lost track of the Germans - Hagen, Elsbeth, et al. Hyun Sook Shin, who walks more slowly, may intersect with our Camino again. BUT with shared contact information, who knows where we will meet again.Read more

    Sing a Song ...

    September 25, 2017 in Spain

    I've been singing on the Way from time to time. Right now I have the Carpenters' "Sing a Song" on my Camino sing list.

    Last night at an Italian albergue we were treated to a live guitar performance by a Spanish pilgrim who is carrying his instrument, talent and voice on the Camino. His rendition of Simon and Garfunkel's Sounds of Silence was haunting and sorrowful.

    After supper the party continued with the largely Italian pilgrim cohort singing improvisational versions of Bob Dylan's Knocking on Heaven's Door, accompanied by the beautiful strumming of the Spanish pilgrim. Magic.Read more

    Today's walk

    September 7, 2016 in Spain

    21 miles today, and even though it was still hot, there was a lot of shade and a nice breeze. And the walk went by fast because I was walking with a Spaniard who was kind enough to let me practice my Spanish.

    Calzadilla de los Hermanillos

    May 17, 2017 in Spain

    The wonderment of trekking along a 1,000 year old Roman road, the Vía Trajana, was only somewhat diminished by the raining, overcast conditions.

    After a not super difficult, 17 miles, we arrived at the albergue around 2pm. They fed us before 6:30pm! And they had vegetation lentils! Bliss.

    Sahagún to El Burgo Ranero

    October 3, 2017 in Spain

    10.3.2017 Tuesday. 12 miles

    Today was one of our "shorter" Days. The trail was straight, flat and thankfully a lot was tree lined. We came across a small church that looked so simple, and yet, again, the inside was beautiful. The afternoon. quickly turned hot with no trees which always makes a short day longer. Was nice to meet up with four marvelous Canadian woman that have become friends.

    Tag 7 geschafft

    June 15 in Spain

    Die letzte Nacht war mal wieder sehr anstrengend! Obwohl ich in einem kleinen 5 Bettzimmer war, hatte ich das Glück diesen Raum mit 4 Männern mittleren Alters zu teilen! Jo, alle 4 haben letzte Nacht geschnarcht! Und wie! Also war eigentlich der Plan heute nur 17 km zu gehen damit ich mehr Ruhe hab. Aber dann dort angekommen hab ich mir den nächsten Tag angeschaut und hätte dann 9,5 + 18,3 machen müssen und das durch die Calzada romana. Die zwar wunderschön ist, aber halt auch 2 lange Strecken in der prallen Sonne und ohne Brunnen auf dem Weg! Und da es sehr heiß geworden ist hab ich dann gedacht:“ zieh durch Marry!“ und hab hier in der privaten Unterkunft angerufen und ein Zimmer reserviert. Zum Glück! Denn dieser Ort hier ist so klein und hat nur 2 Herbergen mit insgesamt 45 Zimmern. Jetzt teile ich mir ein 2 Bettzimmer mit den älteren Herrn den ich schon ein paar mal auf dem Weg getroffen hab und der auch aus DE kommt und hoffe auf eine ruhige Nacht! Ich brauch schlaf!!! Damit ich morgen die 18,5 km ohne Brunnen oder Bar durchziehen kann. Gleich gibt es Abendessen und hier in der Herberge ist auch das Paar, dass ich bereits in Castrojeriz in der Unterkunft kennengelernt hab. Die sind in DE aufgebrochen vor 14 Jahren und gehen jedes Jahr ein Teil vom Jakobsweg. Nächstes Jahr wollen sie in Santiago ankommen. Wahnsinns Storry und schön, wenn man sich dann immer mal wieder auf dem Weg trifft.Read more
