    Bergsteigen im Nebel

    May 22 in Spain ⋅ 🌧 16 °C

    Die Etappe heute hält einiges parat, somit starten wir recht früh und finden sogar eine Bar für die Stärkung👍Es geht nach oben, in den Nebel und alles sieht mystisch aus. In den Nebelschwaden sehen wir die vor uns liegenden Steigungen nicht, verpassen die Weggabelung und nehmen stattdessen die Gipfelbesteigung... Und die Schotterpiste wieder abwärts- alles in mir freut sich😬 Dem Regen entkommen wir heute nicht, haben Premiere in der Herberge ( 2- Bett- Zi) ...Read more

    "Leuchthaus" Busto

    March 27 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Leuchtturm möchte man ja fast nicht sagen. Ich stelle mich etwas abseits auf eine große Wiese, mit Blick auf die Steilküste, die sich schnell mit WoMo's füllt, aber abends auch wieder leert. Es sind viele Spatziergänger unterwegs.
    Auch gibts mal wieder einen Tradi zu finden. Die enge Ortsdurchfahrt musste wohl nicht sein, das war knapp.

    Ostern IM Norden Spaniens

    April 8, 2021 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Der Norden ist der Wahnsinn. Galizien, Asturien, Kantabrien. Start war Galizien. Hier war es so schön und leer das ich mich entschloss, nachdem in Asturien für ein paar Tage die Wetterprognose düster ausfiel, zurückzukehren.

    Vorher habe ich mir noch eine neue Geliebte zugelegt. Rang und schlank und noch Grün hinter den Ohren. Ein Schäppchen😄

    Ribadesella ein wunderbarer Ort mit super Wellen, wenn kein Wind ist. Die Berge mit vielen Möglichkeiten zum Austoben. (Wenn die Saison startet) So blieb nur Wandern und Motorradfahren mit den Flintstones.

    Osterfeuer war auch traumhaft. Ich dachte die Sonne geht hinter den Bergen auf. Nein, sie Fackeln hier ganze Berghänge ab.🤦‍♂️

    Alle Duschen am Strand sind weiterhin gesperrt.
    Ich rieche langsam wie eine Salzbrezel und meine Haare brauchen auch mal wieder eine Spülung.

    Egal. Ich will ja Surfen🏄‍♂️Nicht immer sind die Bedingungen perfekt, aber Spaß macht es immer wieder. Zumal ich jetzt für alle Wellenbedingungen ausgerüstet bin.

    Meine Spanisch Kenntnisse steigen ins unermessliche, sagt zumindest meine Babbel App. 💾 Auf jeden Fall bin ich vorbereitet, wenn der Tag kommt, an dem die Masken fallen. Ausnahmezustand ist bis 9.Mai so sagt der König von Spanien. Ich bin gespannt🐖

    Hasta la próxima amigos

    Aboard TK81 ... IST to BOS

    March 19, 2020 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 61 °F

    Smooth flying so far. We have about three hours left before we land at Logan Airport. Time to do a quick catch up footprint.

    I’ve already posted about the glitch that has us heading to Boston instead of Houston ... no quarantine facilities for those who transited a Schengen country ... should that be necessary.

    Since the tickets were issued through United, however, we had to get the change made through UA. Though Star Alliance Partners, the two airlines’ rezervation systems apparently don’t talk to each other.

    Placed a call to UA ... no can do ... the wait time to get to an agent was two hours. Tried to make the change online ... no can do ... had to check in to the flight first ... not possible on the UA site since the Houston flight was operated by THY. In the end, we just bought another set of award tickets — these through Boston — and then canceled the Houston tickets. Worked like a charm.

    Boarding TK81 at 2:50p, we settled into our Biz Class seats — 5J/K ... last row in the cabin, with a bulkhead behind us. Excellent ... no one to cough or sneeze on us. The flight was 10 minutes late, departing the gate at 3:50p ... wheels up 30 minutes later.

    THY is known for its good service, and this flight has not disappointed. The flight attendants have been quite attentive. The Meal service — which was preceded by wine + warm-from-the-oven nuts + nibbles — was excellent ... mezes (tapas); creamy red pepper soup; sea bass en papilotte (one of three main courses available); and a selection of desserts ... including a to-die-for chocolate bomb filled with chocolate mousse and a mango surprise. Really yummy!

    After dinner, our lie-flat beds were prepared and the cabin lights were dimmed. Mui did manage to sleep for a few hours, but I was too wired. So I spent some time journaling, processing photos for this footprint, listening to music, and watching a movie or two on the in-flight entertainment system.

    I checked out the views below ... but once we were over the Atlantic it was either 100% cloud cover or nothing but “water, water, everywhere.” We did see some amazing mountains while still over Europe ... will have to check the GPS tag to see if they were the Alps. If so ... wow! So little snow on those peaks!

    And here we are ... all caught up. The aroma of food is wafting in the air ... the 👨‍🍳 is preparing the “before landing” meal. I think I am going to abstain ... I’m still stuffed from the first meal service.

    Los Cantiles

    July 30, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Nach detn Stop am Strand fahren wir weiter an einem Campingplatz, der uns empfohlen wurde. Und es hat sich gelohnt hier her zu fahren! Der Campingplatz "Los Cantiles" liegt in einem kleinen galizischen Örtchen in dem es einen kleinen Fischerhafen gibt. Außer dem Campingplatz gibt es aber keinen Tourismus, also ist hier kaum was los.
    Wir haben Glück und bekommen einen erste Reihe Platz. Da in der erste Reihe fast nur Deutsche stehen, haben wir das Gefühl das die deutsche Besitzerin uns ein wenig bevorzugt. Glück für uns!
    Das Wetter ist ziemlich bewölkt, aber ab und zu schaut die Sonne raus. Der Strand ist ein schöner Steinstrand an dem kaum Menschen sind. Der Weg dorthin ist zwar relativ anstrengend, aber es lohnt sich.
    Wir bleiben hier zwei Tagen und genießen das "Wellenrauschen", das hier sehr sehr laut ist aufgrund der hohen Wellen und der Klippen.

    Camino Del Norte - Day 18

    June 27, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Aviles to Soto de Luna
    Distance 40km
    Total ascent 670m

    An enjoyable evening in the Albergue. I spent sometime catching up with peregrinos I know and meeting new ones.
    A large group of young and old decided to prepare a huge communal meal. They produced a banquet complete with wine and Sidre. Their antics added to the general chilled out atmosphere in the Albergue. People were helping others understand how the spinning machine worked to ensure that they had a chance of getting their clothes dry in time for tomorrow morning.
    Everyone seemed to be apprehensive about this stage because of the distance involved. There were only a few places to stay. It seemed the race was on for beds.
    The first peregrinos left at 4.30am; the next wave left at 5.30am. One was kind enough to shine his head torch directly into my face. now awake, I lay for a time and eventually got up.
    Nicol (Generalismo), Andreas, Bepe and I left at 6.15am. The sky was black and heavy with rain. We wandered through the city, winding our way into the countryside. The Camino markers were poor and took us onto some busy roads. This made for scary walking. I was glad to be part of this group as we really looked out for each other. Eventually, the heavens opened up with distant thunder. It was a case of waterproofs, ponchos and some even had umbrellas.
    We quickly racked up 20km before we stopped for breakfast. Our plan to stay at an Albergue was dashed late morning as we learnt that Albergue was full. It simply meant that we now had to walk 40km today. Andreas looked shocked when we told me but quickly fell in line like the rest of us and just got on with it.
    In these cases, you try to walk with a rhythm. I was singing Irish folk songs and swinging my walking piles around. The Italian guys must gave thought that I was mad. We also passed the time just chatting.
    The last two hours was torture. We were exhausted. Thankfully, the rain stopped and the sun broke through. The temperature rocketted like someone turned the oven on. Not pleasant, when you are wet, sweaty peregrino.
    Jerry, from Northern Ireland joined us for the last few kilometers into our final destination.
    We had to register at a bar in the village. As I was filling in the required register California Dreaming came on the jukebox. I burst end out laughing and was looking around for my old pal Al Cox.
    We arrived at our still being renovated Albergue. We were obviously first to arrive as we had choice of bottom bunks. This is a very important point that all peregrinos know. It is hard work trying to get up to the top bunk. It is even harder nay life threatening in the middle of the night.

    Cycling Cudillero to Luarca

    July 7, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ☁️ 18 °C

    Slept until 8:30 after a late night dinner. Left Cudillero around 10:15. Arrived in Luarca around 3:30ish after 36 miles and 3525 ft of elevation gain. Legs were feeling it. It was non-stop climbing from the ocean up over a ridge only to drop back to ocean and climb right back up. Luckily it was a cool day and was treated to great views. Stopped for coffee at a roadside cafe where a dozen other pilgrims were resting.Read more

    Evening in Luarca

    July 7, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    After walking back to my room to put on pants and a jacket as it was quite cool this evening with a breeze - I walked along harbor and the dozens of restaurants with signs that dinner is served at 8:30. So funny. In Folsom it is challenge to find food after Yoga at 8:45. Here it is a challenge to find food before 8:30. I headed to an outdoor cafe and had a cafe con leche and watched the world go by. I then ordered another. Then switched to Vino Tinto as I was pretty chill. Then another. Finally decided I should get some food around 10:45. I asked for my bill. $5 euros. I told him I think he forgot to charge me for something. He printed a tag. 2 wine 2 coffee - 5 euros. I was expecting at least a $20 tab. Walking back was too lazy to sit for dinner. Next to the hotel was a small hole in the wall to go shop. I got some pasta and a drink to take back to my room for $4 euro. He asked if I was a pilgrim and said he would give me extra for my important journey to make me strong.Read more

    End of the Road

    July 7, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Unexpected treat when my road came to an end - at a beach. Luckily I was able to push my bike 100 yards across the beach and across a creek to find a road on the other side. Otherwise I would have had to backtrack several miles. Strava maps was not accurate - but worked out for me.Read more
