    Comillas - Colombres

    September 18, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Ein langer Tag, insgesamt 29 km (meine Füße melden immer noch zuverlässig die Überschreitung der 15km-Marke, die letzten 10 habe ich mal wieder in Flipflops zurückgelegt). Zwischendurch eine schöne Erholung, barfuss am Strand entlang nach San Vicente (wo mein Vater sich vor ca 45 Jahren die einmalige Chance hat entgehen lassen, in ein Grundstück zu investieren und uns alle zu Millionären zu machen). ;) Kurz vor Ende der Etappe haben wir die Grenze nach Asturien überschritten, damit habe ich inzwischen das Baskenland und Kantabrien durchquert! Abends dann die Belohnung mit Snacks und Kaltgetränken in gemütlicher Runde im Garten der Herberge, mit vielen lustigen und auch überraschend tiefsinnigen Gesprächen.Read more

    Colombres - a long and hot 28kms

    September 27, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    Today was a long day and the weather was hot, hot, hot! However, there were lots of pleasant distractions along the way.

    Reflecting on the past few days, the coastal alternatives were amazing and I'd do them again in a heartbeat However, taking a different path can lead to a disconnection from other pilgrims. And since we had already parted company with lots of folk in Bilbao, we've been getting to know a bunch of 'new' people over the past few days.

    As on the Primitivo last year, English speakers are in the minority on this Camino. We were delighted to meet J. from England this morning and to walk with him to San Vincente de la Barquera. He started in Santander and will cross onto the Camino Lebaniego today. He plans to continue on Vadiniense and if his money doesn't run out, he'll keep on walking - perhaps on the Salvador and Primitivo. What a wonderful plan!

    It was also a lovely surprise to see M. from Barcelona who we last saw in the albergue in Markina.

    We're in the Colombres albergue, along with almost everyone we met today. It's a forgettable kind of a place, but we were all much too tired to be fussy. There are about 20 of us here.

    Tomorrow we'll walk to Llanes or Poo. Our big priority will be to find a place with a washing machine!

    Colombres / 332km

    July 10, 2015 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    8:30. We splited again. I went to the railway station Colombres, but the next train was at about 11am ( it goes 2 times a day), so I decided to walk little bit and take the train later. It was a good decision: very nice trail on the cost with beautiful scenery. It was much more easier to find the railway station in Pendueles, than the bus stop yesterday. Nevertheless I asked for the way: "para estatione?". "Si, si, blablabla once." That I knew already, but was thankful for the confirmation, who knows how old was the timetable in Colombres. The train came on time, fare : 1.65€Read more

    San Vicente - Columbres 17 k
    Nice walk, no rain! Walked a little more with Jacob, he's off to the Santo Toribio route. I really enjoyed connecting with him; over the two days we did a couple things together and it was fun to have someone to be with. I got to Columbres at about 1 o'clock; luckily they let me into the hostel early, along with a Danish guy; others had to wait. It was Sunday so stores were closed. I walked into town, saw the museum of Emigration which was fairly interesting. The hostel ended up fairly full, including the French guys I've been seeing over and over again, Jeremie and Louis. I didn't really talk much to anybody.Read more
