    La isla bonita

    September 15, 2017 in Spain

    Tonight I am in a small coastal town called La Isla. Let me set the stage, I am in the only cafeteria in this small town, it is raining outside and it seems like all the locals from this town are in this bar ..... It's loud. I came here to have dinner (by myself) and had a ensalada mixta and tortilla. I decided to take an extra coffee (descafeinao) because it is just raining too much to walk back to the albergue.

    Yes, I am alone. This afternoon, after Kristien her clothes had dried, the hospitalera drove us to the next big town....... Yes, I cheated!!!!
    It was raining, i had more then 20 km ahead of me and it was already 1 o'clock. I left Kristien in Ribadesella and was dropped in the next town by the hospitalera. Kristien had to stay behind because her heel and ankle were swollen after the massage and it hurt to walk, so it was better to take a rest day. I felt bad leaving her alone, but I want to be in Villaviciosa tomorrow to meet up with a friend from Madrid.

    On my way to the La Isla it rained off an on but I was lucky to be able to hide from the rain so my shoes didn't get too wet. While walking the last part, I met up with Lina, the german girl who also speaks dutch. She is also staying at the albergue but was going to cook in the cocina, instead of eating out. Ai no yuuuuu, hopi gana, I guess it's the age...... It must be the age, because while walking here she said, you know...... The name of this place reminds me of the song La isla bonita, I said huh, you know that song??? Who sings it? She said she had no idea......... OMG, I feel old 😂😂😂

    Ok, I am off in the rain. Bet you lights in the albergue are off already! Ughhhhh 😩

    Camino Del Norte - Day 15

    June 24, 2017 in Spain

    Camino Del Norte - Day 15
    Ribadesella to Sebrayo

    Distance 31.5km (7.5 hours)
    Total ascent 420m

    Last night, Andreas and I went for an evening meal which consisted of Sidre, chorizo and calamari. We sadly said goodbye to our Spanish friends Anna and David. They have to return to Madrid to work. I really enjoyed their company over the last two days. Our little group won't be the same.
    Andrea and I set off at 6.30am and met the usual Spanish revellers making their way home.
    My new shoes feel fantastic and we were quickly racking up kilometers along the coastline. The scenery was stunning. We kept dropping down into little coves where people were staying overnight in their vans and surfers going out for their first surf of the day.
    It was very overcast and the Picos of Europe mountains were shroud in mist. We eventually got to a coastal town La Isla where we stopped for breakfast. Rain threatened but after putting on our jackets and cooking, it was more preferable to walk without in the drizzle.
    The Camino was a lovely mixture of quiet lanes and mud tracks. We stopped briefly in a town called Colunga where I used my Spanish to post a letter home. I was very proud that my Spanish evening classes were paying off.
    We eventually caught up with Nicole, Andrea's Italian friend. He walked a little further yesterday because of bed shortages. We walked the last 5km together to the rural Albergue in Sebrayo.
    We stopped briefly to look at the pre-Romanesque Church of San Salvador in a village called Priesca. It is one of the oldest churches on the Camino and was built in 921AD.
    We arrived at 1.30pm and decided to call it a day. Admin completed, the lovely hospilardo direct us to a fantastic restaurant a kilometres away on top of a hill where we enjoyed some amazing seafood and wine.
    There are only four of us booked in for tonight in the Albergue. It has only cost 4 euros. A grocery van has just arrived and we have bought some Sidre and snacks for tonight.

    Colunga: parem a dinar

    July 10 in Spain

    L'Ian s'adorm a la furgo. Per un moment pensem que si no es desperta tampoc no passa res... Un menú menys a pagar. Al cap i a la fi a la furgoneta portem menjar. Pero si, s'acaba despertant. Abans no hem trobat el lloc hem donat algunes voltes. Perquè hi ha molts restaurants tancats... Un senyor del poble ens explica no sé qué d'un problema elèctric. Al final anem a petar a Casa Laureano. I molt bé. Grans quantitats amb una qualitat molt digna. Pa, vi, aigua, postre i café. Molt bon menú. No es pot compartir així que li demanem un mig menú a L'ian, que si, s'ha despertat. Ens pimplem una ampolla de vi entre els dos i jo acabo una mica piripi... Acabo tirant el vi i el cafè per la taula. Quan acabem agafem la furgoneta i Seguim cap a Gijón Allà hem quedat amb la Mari Lu. Continuarà...Read more

    July 11, 2015 in Spain

    The albergue was right next to the beach. So we swam again. 😀

    The dinner was a very typical Spanish dinner... Meat, meat and also some meat. Well, the soup was good!
    Breakfast was very simple and full of sugar.

    Price: 25€ with breakfast and dinner

    24.09.2017 - Colunga

    September 24, 2017 in Spain

    Der bisher schönste Wegabschnitt bei herrlichem Wetter absolviert. Landschaftlich traumhaft und facettenreich. Die Pause wieder am Strand verbracht, da man das super Wetter und die wunderschönen Strände genießen und ausnutzen muss.😉
    Nach der doch recht langen Strecke, freut man sich dann auf die Ankunft am Ziel, das heute Colunga war.😊
    Die Bildauswahl für das Tagebuch ist wegen der unzähligen Motive extrem schwer.👍
    Die Achillesehne rechts macht Probleme, deshalb ist mir das Laufen heute etwas schwer gefallen😩
    Am Abend beim Feierabendbierchen das erste mal jemanden den Sidra trinken gesehen. Allerdings nicht klassisch von weit oben in das tief gehaltene Glas plätschern lassen, sondern mittels einer Dossiervorrichtung eingeschenkt.
    Die Profis machen das ganze dann noch über den Rücken.😮
