    Nog een stoere chicaa

    August 7 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 33 °C

    Ik zat even uit te puffen in de schaduw, komt er een wandelaar voorbij. De eerste vrouw alleen die ik tegenkom! Zo stoer van haar! Girlpowerrr

    Ondertussen ben ik voor vandaag gefinisht! Er zijn geen campings in de buurt dus ik had een Albergue uitgezocht met een grote tuin. En daar mag ik nu m'n tentje opzetten! Hij sprak alleen Spaans dus ik moest met gebaren uitleggen wat m'n plannetje was met de tent. Wat hebben we gelachen😂 Maar uiteindelijk begrepen we elkaar!Read more

    August 7 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 34 °C

    Gedoucht, kleding gewassen, tent staat klaar, wat aan m'n fiets geprutst... Tijd om te relaxen! En kijk eens wat ik vanmiddag vond? Ik ga genieten van een klein beetje Nederland! Half warm is dit vast ook wel te drinken toch?
    Ojaaa zie je de lijntjes op m'n benen? Die gaan denk ik nooit meer weg🙈

    What a night!

    August 7 in Spain ⋅ 🌙 29 °C

    Vanochtend ontmoette ik tegelijk met de Nederlanders een nogal bijzonder stel: een Koreaan en een Fransman. En wie kwam ik vanmiddag tegen in de Albergue? Wat een geweldige avond. Ik heb zoooo hard gelachen. En begonnen we met rode wijn, zijn we geëindigd met Martinis waar ik de tel kwijt raakte. De gekste verhalen bleven maar komen tijdens het pelgrimsmenu en we bleven maar lachen dat de andere gasten ons een beetje gek aankeken😂 Hopelijk heb ik hier morgen niet al te veel spijt van hahahRead more

    Sahagun To El Burgo Ranero

    September 26, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    A relatively easy day today along the Frances. What a difference it is along this trail. Many other pilgrims along the trail, and at rest stops. The trails are all well groomed, and shaded by rows of trees. The villages are much closer together, and there is always food and drink at hand.

    Staying at a hostal tonight. Many more choices of places to stay compared with 2013.

    On the downside, a pilgrim told me last night that their friend in Santiago had to wait 3 days to get their compestela. There are so many in Santiago that you have to stand in line to get a number, then follow your number on an app that you download to monitor it’s progress.

    Anyway just a few pics today.

    Day 34. Calzadilla-Mansilla de Las Mulas

    September 7, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    Reliegos to Mansilla 6.2km.
    We had to make the decision of whether to follow the Camino on the straight old Roman road with nothing but Meseta or cut across to El Burgo Ranero and rejoin the French Camino path.
    At breakfast we discussed it. We couldn't face another 18km of nothing but most of the others were keen to do it, hoping the old road might peep through the new surfacing just up ahead somewhere.
    The Murphy’s decided to follow us on what we dubbed the Australian way. We walked with the group for about 4km then we and the Murphys turned left leaving our other friends behind with great wailing of Adios Amigos and the like.
    It was only 2km to El Burgo Ranero and the new Camino Frances. The Roman Road was the old way called the Green Way and was just more dust and rocks.

    Day 34a. El Burgo Ranero, Camino.

    September 7, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 12 °C

    After we parted from the other Peregrinos to get on the French path we walked for 2km into El Burgo Ranero which has a population of 841. We stopped for second breakfast and then off to continue our journey to Reliegos. As we previously warned Geraldine and Terry, after 2nd breakfast we took off at a speed that Susie was comfortable with. They were not unhappy with that as Geraldine found Susie a bit quick as do most people. 8km after El Burgo Ranero we reached the village of Villamarco a bit off the track so we by-passed it.

    We had a few stops along the way to Reliegos but got there and collapsed into red chairs at a cafe table under part shade. We took off our sock and shoes and just sat for at least 30 minutes. We then ordered some coffee and juice as Terry and Geraldine appeared out of nowhere. We were surprised they caught us. It was a long way and 30 minutes is not a long time in this world. In Roman times Reliegos was an important transport centre as it lay at the coming together of three major roads. It's most recent claim to fame though is that of the last major meteorite strike to have hit Spain, way back at 8am on the 28th December 1948. The meteorite fell on the Calle Real and weighed around 8.9 kilos.

    After eating we took of again to Mansilla.

    Another easy walk - at El Burgo Ranero

    September 24, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    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 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!

    Early morning walk

    May 30, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 4 °C

    Since I took an alternate route yesterday to stay at the albergue that my friend Nan was volunteering at I had a longish walk (about 12 miles) before breakfast. I started just as the sun was coming up.Read more

    A friendly face from home!

    May 29, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    My friend Marcella emailed me yesterday to let me know that Nan Schulman from our Camino group in Oregon was volunteering as a hospitalera "somewhere on the Meseta". It turned out that the town she's in was a good stopping point for me today.

    This is a very quiet town of about 150 people. Quite a few of the buildings are built of straw and adobe.
