    Something weird happened and too complicated to explain, but yesterday’s wifi published with great difficulty the photos that people have already liked and commented on, but somehow when I now with better wifi put up some more, it thought I was editing and deleted the originals...oh well..here they are again..just for the record...

  • Day30

    I say it was an easy walk because we didn’t arrive hot and bothered, and it was 21 kms on a level track. We saw that this walk had 2 alternatives, one just following the road and the other through fields and by the river...we of course opted for the latter, but you had to be a bit observant as both ways had inviting arrows...and many people chose (or accidentally followed) the road which would have been very boring. We happily didn’t make the fatal error and followed a pleasant path through fields and then along the river, in shade, so for the entire morning we were pleasantly cool.

    We turned and joined the road walkers at a little town where there is a famous Templar church, now a national monument, Santa Maria la Blanca, which we looked at and remembered from last time. From there we also had no alternative than to follow the track alongside the road for the last 5 kms into Carrión de Los Condes. We remembered this stage as rather hot and awful, but there was a breeze and we arrived unruffled!! And we knew where to find our beautiful hotel, right through the town and out the other side on the Camino. It was a monastery and is I think the fanciest hotel we stay in the whole way! So we are enjoying the whole experience, at the moment having a drink and a small snack of croquetas as dinner isn’t till 8.

    Carrion de los Condes

    July 8 in Spain

    Very slow WiFi - So who knows when this post will go up. I am spoiled with WiFi speeds at home🙂

    July 8th

    We had a very short day miles wise with only 10 or 11 miles to Carrión de Los Condes, but walking on a path with the scenery the same and no hills made it seem further than it was. It seemed like we would never get to the town we could see in the distance.

    Memories from today:
    1. Mirabelle crocheting me a tiny backpack to put my stone in 💕🙂
    2. Early morning coffee stop with ping pong, a melted chocolate bar, a baby lamb, laughter, and Chong serenading us on guitar.
    3. Meeting Patu, who has been walking for 45 days through France and Spain after receiving a bone marrow transplant to cure his cancer. Amazing man!
    4. Eating dinner and having a beer under cover during a thunderstorm
    5. Viewing the ancient church artifacts in the church Iglesia de Santiago

    Eine Nacht bei Nonnen.

    June 7 in Spain

    Auch heute war der Weg super, keine wesentlichen Berge und Natur wohin das Auge blickt..... und natürlich wieder mein Klatschmohn 😊. Auch heute habe ich vergebens versucht den Italienern, bzw. nur Monika (Marco war heute allein unterwegs) den Namen Klatschmohn zu vermitteln..... aussichtslos. 😏..... auf italienisch heißt er Papavero, bzw. Papaveri in der Mehrzahl.

    Unser neues Domizil ist in Carión de los Condes, ein Nonnenorden ⛪ namens Santa Maria. Hier herrschen die Nonnen, sind aber alle recht nett.
    Der Schlafsaal ähnelt eher einer Sardinenbüchse 🐟🐟 Dopopelstockbetten dicht an dicht, man könnte des nächtens fast ins andere Bett rüberrollen...... mal schauen, wie die Nacht wird. Aufgrund des schlechten Wetters 🌦🌪⛈ hustet und prustet die halbe Belegschaft (inklusive mir), aber gegen die Toillettengeräusche von gestern wird's sicher angenehm.

    Am Abend wurde gemeinschaftlich gesungen ( Marco und ich haben uns jedoch verzogen und lieber Wäsche gewaschen), gegen 18.00 gab's eine Messe⛪ und danach hab ich für meine beiden Italiener Pancake 🌯🍷 gemacht. Alle waren sehr zufrieden und freuten sich auf die Nacht. 😴😴

    Ich muss sagen, dass die Natur und die kirchlichen Bauwerke schwindelerregend beeindruckend sind. Bin immer noch davon sprachlos.....

    Ab morgen werd ich erstmal wieder allein durch die Lande ziehen. Brauch mal etwas Zeit für mich und vielleicht kann ich ja Aaron einholen, würde ihn gern nochmal wieder sehen...... in Leon, jedoch wollen wir uns alle wieder treffen.... By the way, heute liefen mir tatsächlich die Australier Erik und Liz über den Weg..... hab mich riesig gefreut.

    Carrion de los Condes 21 km

    September 17, 2017 in Spain

    Jeden Tag darf ich bei schönem Wetter Wandern, jedoch ist es am Morgen nur 1 Grad warm gewesen.
    Die Wade zwickt beim Wandern zwischendurch aber sie halt und ich kann wieder normal auftreten. Durch das schonen während den letzten Tagen ist die linke Wade nun deutlich schmähler geworden.

    Illumination. ...

    September 23, 2017 in Spain

    ... can take many forms. As we started off in the dark this morning from Boadilla our path was lit with my headlamp. Later in an ancient church, modern stain glass windows illuminated the stony interior. And then out in the daylight again where a blazing Spanish sun pushed our shadows westward to Santiago de Compostella.

  • Day23

    Felt much better this morning. Should, I guess, as I got better than 24 hours of rest.

    Left before sunrise as it gets pretty hot on the Meseta once the sun is up. This was the third day of the Meseta with two to three more to go before I get into more vegetative areas. Typical desert, brown and very dry.

    Walked along the Canal de Castillo for some of the walk, but most of it was beside a highway with a ditch separating pilgrims from the cars. Very boring walk. I did run into a girl from Boston that moved to Charleston and said she was never going back to New England as the winters were too tough. No surprise there.

    Made several stops as I needed food and one was in a barnyard as the picture suggests. Others were more typical cafes without the barnyard animals. One thing I've noticed is that there are many, many cats...more cats than dogs as best that I can tell. I suspect the mice population is pretty low. Also have not noticed many birds. Given the large amount of bread you would think that birds would be everywhere.

    Upon arriving in Carrion, I checked out a few hostels, but all were booked. The last place I tried, the owner called around and found a room in the convent. Eighteen euro for a private room with the facilities across the hall, and a nun to do my laundry (for free). I must be doing something right.

    Went out for a bocadillo, but my stomach still needs some time so I'll try something else.

    Enjoy the pictures

    Wine

    September 5, 2016 in Spain

    This is how much wine is included in the price of a 3 course meal for one person! Only 12€, which has is kind of high, because it's only 8€ to 10€ many places. You get your choice of wine or water - same price.

    Long hot walk

    September 5, 2016 in Spain

    21.5 miles from Itero de la Vega to Carrión de los Condes
    I walked with 3 nice Irish guys, 2 brothers and the son of one of them. I really wanted to get to the "big" town of Carrión de los Condes, population 2500, rather than stay on another tiny town so that I could have access to a supermercado, farmacia, etc. I'm not sure I would have walked this far solo, so I was very happy to have company on my walk today. I'm going to stick to sub 20 mile days at least until I get to León later this week.Read more
