    Camino Frances 7

    August 8, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Nach zwei weiteren Tagen bin ich heute in Burgos angekommen. Mein gestriges Etappenziel war Atapuerca, ein hübsches kleines Dorf in der Provinz Burgos. Atapuerca ist eine Weltkulturerbestätte, da dort die ältesten menschlichen Fossilen Europas entdeckt wurden.
    Heute ging es dann 20 km weiter in die Stadt Burgos. Der Weg dorthin war nicht so überwältigend - es ging vorbei am Flughafen, durch ein Gewerbegebiet und zwei Vororte von Burgos - also viel Asphalt. 😒 (aber bei insgesamt 764 km kann es auch nicht immer idyllisch sein)
    Da ich bereits mittags im Stadtzentrum angekommen bin, hatte ich noch ausreichend Zeit mir den historischen Stadtkern mit der Kathedrale anzuschauen - ein grandioses Bauwerk. Durch die 19 Kapellen in der Kathedrale wirkt der Innenraum aber etwas verbaut. Von außen ist sie aber toll anzusehen. Einer der Baumeister war übrigens Johannes von Köln.

    October 22, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 8 °C

    die nacht war etwas kalt bei 13 grad in der unterkunft; zum glück hatten wir gute schlafsäcke. die temperatur beim packen draussen am morgen war bei 6 grad. wir waren alle eingepackt mit mütze, schal und handschuhen. im nebel gings dann los und die kälteste temperatur war 4 grad. wir strampelten uns warm. in burgos beim hotel angekommen wurden wir wieder extrem herzlich empfangen. in einem kleinen raum hinter der rezeption, haben sie platz gemacht für unsere fahrräder und zwei anhänger. eigentlich wollten wir die carla draussen lassen, doch die chefin hat darauf bestanden und zwei männer organisiert, die sie mit nik zusammen in den raum hoben. für uns ist diese zeit in burgos völliger Luxus; schönes hotel, warm, gemütlich und erholsam. hier blleiben wir zur erholung bis freitag, da sie regen angesagt haben und kalte temperaturen.Read more

    Burgos #1

    July 3, 2018 in Spain ⋅ 🌙 17 °C

    We arrived in Burgos today. 🙂 Remember when I said we were not going to take a rest day? Well, we changed our minds. Once we got to our hotel room, we realized how tired our bodies were. Plus, this way we get to stick with our group and spend some more time with those who are leaving to go back home...and get to see some of the amazing sites in this city that we will probably never get to see again.

    So...Both Alan and I plan on touring the inside of the cathedral tomorrow, visiting the museum, and maybe checking out the castle. All of that will happen after we sleep in a bit instead of getting up at 5 am. 🙂

    Here are a few pics and video from today

    Eigth stop - Burgos

    May 7, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Belorado -> 27km (+22km by bus) -> Burgos
    My ankle feeling better, we were off to Agés, from where we took a bus to Burgos. I will have a well deserved (and not forced) rest day tomorrow. Today's walk was through long forest routes that were wonderful and relaxing! Looking forward to discovering the city!Read more

    Ages to Burgos

    May 8, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

    Good morning to everyone. I packed up my tent and left Ages at around 7:30 am in the morning. I walked a couple of miles and came across a place for breakfast. After a coffe and an apple pastry, I was on my way again. The walk to Burgos took me up over a mountain, which was quite steep I might add, and the path ran along a Spanish military base. Once at the top, I could see Burgos...still a 4 hour walk off in the distance. I have officially walked 180 miles of the Camino but with the added daily walking within the towns to find lodging, walking to find food....I beilive I am actually approaching 200 Miles. I had a nice hotel in Burgos...very inexpensive by American standards...with breakfast, my own room and shower. You really start to appreciate all these things when you can find them. Living and sharing facilities in an albergue gets old. I went to the huge church in Burgos....I have never seen a church so vast in my don’t do it justice. It took me 15-20 minutes just to walk around the structure on the outside. It was built from 1221-1260 I think. I can’t believe that building so huge and so ornate would be possible with the tools and means of that time period. But huge it is. That’s it for now...I hope this finds everyone well!Read more

    Now photos on walk to Burgos

    September 16, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    A miracle, the photos went, after an agonisingly long time, and on the second attempt when I put my iPad near the door, not out on the alcove in our room where I had been sitting! So will have another go...not many today anyway, as the walk in to the city is not picturesque. But lovely early morning light, and the view of Burgos in the distance.Read more

    Burgos #2

    July 4, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    It felt so good to sleep in a bit this morning! Our bodies needed it. We explored a little this morning by touring the Cathedral - oh my goodness! I couldn’t even begin to capture it all in pictures/video. Just looking up at the different domes was amazing, let alone the paintings, tapestries, and sculptures. It’s hard to comprehend how long it must have taken to complete the different works of art. We also got to see some fiesta celebration with a parade of the giants and big heads. They are in one of the video snippets and a picture I added here.

    This afternoon we went to the Museum of Evolution which houses some of the oldest evidence of human life on our planet- another “wow” experience. The castle didn’t make the list today, because we decided to do what the Spanish do and had a siesta. Everything pretty much closes down from 2:00 until 5:00 or later, so why not rest ourselves 🙂.
    Restaurants don’t really open up for dinner until 8:00 or later which is a schedule that we are not used to.

    I thought I would attach a picture of my Pilgrim Credential today. This is what we need to stay in the different pilgrim albergues along the way. We have to have it stamped each day, and then during the last 100 kilometers it must be stamped twice a day as proof of our journey. Cafes, churches, and other places also have stamps. Once we get to Santiago de Compostela, we will show our Pilgrim Credential and then receive a certificate of our journey. That seems like it will take forever, since we have only gone 180 miles and we still have 320 to go 😳.

    Tonight we had a goodbye dinner for four of our people who are heading back home. We are sad to see them leave 😕...such good people. But, on a happy note - I met another fellow WSU Cougar and his wife who are walking the Camino. GO COUGS!!! They had dinner with us tonight and we hope to see them along the way.

    Tomorrow, we head to Hornillos 🙂

    40km de marche, je pense que nous sommes en formes. Burgos est une ville incroyable avec sa cathédrale magnifique. Nous sommes arrivé à 19:30 et une roulotte dans un camping nous attendais. Comme vous pouvez voir, nous avons changé de sorte de bière pour la Mahou. De nouveaux amis de l’Irlande se sont joins à nous. Buen Camino!!!Read more
