    Needed a rest day after the mountain crossing yesterday. Segovia was a great city for site seeing. This town is famous for it’s incredible intact Roman aquaduct. Also an incredible cathedral, and the Alcasar castle.Read more

    Today we visited Salamanca. It is a realy beautiful city. Lots of tourist, but who cares if the surroundings are so impressive.
    Had some cake, and diner.
    You only live once.
    Got a campingplace today, because we wanted a shower, with flip-flops, and some washing needed to be done.
    Now... get some rest. Tomorrow a 280km drive.
    Into the heart of Spain.

    CityCamping.

    January 31 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

    As we left our nice spot in the early morning,
    we decided to visit some Spanish cities.
    We can slow down a bit and take all the time we need.
    Nika did her first km on Spanisch soil.
    Sadly she had to start with a "nice" climb.
    Just to get the right feeling..
    We did a nice 250+ km with one stop.
    Now we are on a parking lot in the city of Valladolid and hope to find some diner for tonight.
    And tomorrow.... another day.

    Segovia

    May 27, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    What a charming town! We had two nights here but could easily have stayed longer. It has a relaxed friendly atmosphere, lots of choices for dining, lots to see and do.....
    1. Aqueduct, one of the best-preserved elevated Roman aqueducts and the foremost symbol of Segovia. It has 167 arches.
    2. The Alcázar of Segovia ("Segovia Fortress"), a medieval alcázar and a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. It was originally built as a fortress but has served as a royal palace, a state prison, a Royal Artillery College and a military academy since then. It is currently used as a museum and a military archives building. We climbed its 152 stairs to get great views.
    3. Palacio Real de La Granja de San Ildefonso, known as La Granja, is an early 18th-century palace. It became the summer residence of the Kings of Spain from the 1720s during the reign of Philip V. 
    4. The gardens and grounds extend over 1,500 acres (6.1 km2) inspired by the gardens at Versailles.

    Salamanca

    May 29, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    We are now in Salamanca! With a history dating back to the Celtic era, it’s known for its ornate sandstone architecture and for the Universidad de Salamanca. There is a vibrancy in the city - the Plaza Mayor is always full of diners and tourists and lots of young university students fill the city.
    The Roman bridge of Salamanca, known traditionally as puente mayor and as puente prinçipal (main bridge) gives access to the southern part of the city. Great views of Salamanca Cathedral across the bridge.
    We climbed the stairs of the Scala Coeli, Clerecía Church in Salamanca, historic baroque Catholic church featuring bell towers with sweeping city views. The church is now headquarters of Salamanca Pontificia University.

    Llegamos a Segovia

    February 19, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 8 °C

    A ultima hora de la tarde llegamos al Parador de Segovia. Desde ahi teniamos una vista increible de la ciudad, muy parecida a la vista que disfrutamos en Toledo.

    El alcazar y la catedral se destacan sobre el resto, y nos sorprendio descubrir el acueducto a lo lejos. Desde este lugar tambien se ve que esta amurallada.

    Mañana nos toca recorrer la ciudad.

    Camino Frances 12

    August 17, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    Gestern bin ich von Villadangos del Paramo über Hospital de Orbigo nach Astorga gelaufen. Auf dem Weg habe ich deutlich gemerkt, dass ich mit dem Verlassen von Leon auch die Meseta hinter mir gelassen habe, denn die Landschaft wird wieder etwas grüner und es gibt wieder mehr Bäume. Allerdings werden mir die unzähligen Feldmäuse fehlen, die mir ständig vor den Füßen rumgelaufen sind. Die waren wirklich niedlich. 😊
    Von Astorga ging es heute bergauf und bergab (mehr bergauf 😉) über Santa Catalina und Rabanal del Camino nach Foncebadon.
    Foncebadon ist ein kleiner, etwas vernachlässigter Ort in den Bergen der Provinz Leon.

    León To La Robla

    September 29, 2019 in Spain ⋅ 🌙 12 °C

    The nun’s woke the albergue up at 6:00 am sharp this morning. This was ok with me, as I wanted to get an early start. I ate a couple of yogurts that I bought the night before, and hit the trail.

    Following the arrows, I came across the point where the Camino Frances and the San Salvador split. Armed with water, a almond chocolate bar, and a spare bocadillo, I set out. Once I was out of town and into the hills, I could hardly put my camera away. It is a beautiful woodsy trail with great scenery. No crowds either.

    It was a hilly 27 kilometres, but it felt great. On the trail, I was joined by a Spanish guy who has taken holidays to do this Camino. His name is Juan, and works in Alicante for a company that does international work. By an amazing coincidence, it turns out he works at the same place as our friend Petya Ninova !

    Anyway in La Robla we have a beautiful albergue here tonight with a great group of pilgrims doing this Camino. There is Juan, a Swedish young guy named Christopher who speaks English as well as perfect Spanish, and an older Spanish women named Manuela.

    Tomorrow we climb 1.5 vertical kilometres! Should be extra brooootal.

    En nu?

    August 4 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    Okee overwinning op mezelf! Het hostel dat ik in gedachten had blijkt gesloten, dus ik moet opzoek naar andere opties. Change of plans! En ik ben eigenlijk best wel trots op hoe ik dat doe haha. Gewoon én op het laatste moment van een plan afwijken én ook nog m'n 'enige houvast' de route loslaten😬 Dus voor nu: spullen weer inpakken, muziekje op en nog eens 40km knallennnn naar Burgos!Read more
