    110. Etappe: Deba

    October 28 in Spain

    Ganz entspannt starteten wir heute zu Dritt in den Tag. Uns erwartete eine kleine, aber lt. Wanderfiebel eine der wohl schönsten Etappen des Camino del Norte, wenn man etwas vom ausgeschildertem Weg abweicht. Das taten wir und genossen so manch tolle Aussicht mit Käffchen (super, jemanden mit vollständiger Campingausrüstung dabei zu haben 👍☕).
    Gut, dass die heutige Pilgerherberge eine Waschmaschine und nen Trockner hat - denn dank so manchem Regen- und Hagelschauer waren die Wege ziemlich matschig und unsere Hosen hatten am Ende des Tages die selbe Farbe wie der Weg. 😅Read more

  • Day4

    Nach einem Mega kargen 1.Frühstück gehts weiter erst zu zweit dann kurzzeitig zu dritt und schnell wieder alleine für ne Zeit was auch wirklich gut ist zwischen durch. Unterhaltung ist sehr schön doch Ruhe zwischendurch auch. Plötzlich taucht mitten im Wald ein Versorgungsauto auf. Geillll 2.Frühstück. Dann gehts weiter mit zwei Deutschen, eine aus Frankfurt und einer aus Wiesbaden. Eine so schöne aber auch steile anstrengend Strecke die durch die vielen kleinen Steine sehr rutschig ist plus Muskelkater in der Wade😉21 km sind um 14:00 Uhr hinter mir und für heute reicht. Nach dem beziehen einer wunderschönen Herberge in einem alten Bahnhof. 56 Betten topp gepflegt, geht es zum Gemeinsamen Essen. Frischer Seehecht in Ei angemacht...ein Traum. Der Rest des Tages nur Ruhe denn die Strecke wird morgen mehr wie heftig 💪🏻Read more

    Camino Del Norte - Day 3

    June 11, 2017 in Spain

    Camino Del Norte - Day 3
    Distance 22km. Time taken 5.5 hours.
    Total ascent/descent 640m

    I walked around Getaria last night. It was a small bustling town. I enjoyed a few pinoxs and watching the basques playing handball in the square. A lovely atmosphere.
    I returned to the albergue to find the place packed with Spanish kids. Extra beds were put up and confusion reigned. Thankfully, I had all my admin completed.
    Eventually, everything settled down and I was in bed for 9.30pm. Walking in this heat is exhausting.
    If any of you have stayed in an albergue, you will remember that unique small of sweaty clothes and kit everywhere.
    It was a very warm night but I had a fitful sleep until someone's alarm went off at 5.30am. Someone else's alarm went off every 10 minutes. By 6am, I lost the will to stay in my bunk. I simply had a quick wash and was out the door into the dawn and fresh air.
    It was a beautiful day and I could feel the temperature rising.
    As usual, it was a case of struggling up and down hills all day.
    I have fallen into the usual perigrino routine, stopping for lots of water breaks and consuming my cheese and bread sat on a picnic table.
    Eventually, I arrived in a beautiful town called Zumaia and marvelled at the 15th century Church of San Pedro.
    I continued on my merry way and struck up a conversation for the next few kilometres with a German kid walking the Camino before starting nursing training. She was delighted to hear about my daughter path to nursing.
    As usual, the day involved walking with Italians , Spanish and even a fellow countryman.
    I finally arrived in Deba around noon and initially planned to carry on for another 5km to an albergue in the middle of nowhere. This involved another 60m ascent onto the ridge out of town. Everyone seemed to be in the same frame of thought. We all checked into the Albergue de Pergrinos for 5 euros.
    It is actually part of the train station and bang in the middle of town.
    A number of us shared a washing machine and dryer to get our kit cleaned. All admin done, I am off to explore Deba.
    Tomorrow, I will leave the coast for a time to make my way to Markina-Xemein. It is a remote part of the Camino with 930km over 23km with little or no facilities.
    In another three days, I will be in Bilbao.

    Thank you for your support and donations to B.I.R.D
    It means a lot to me and the small charity I am supporting.

    Buen Camino.

    Chris, a big thank you for your generous donation. 😎

    Estamos en España

    May 22 in Spain

    We crossed the border into Spain at San Sebastian this afternoon.
    After a lovely breakfast this morning our host at the vineyard insisted we try his organic red wine so it wasn't the best way to start a long drive. It was foggy and cool as we left so we had jackets over jumpers which gradually came off as the sun came out. The border had a queue of trucks waiting to enter France which must have been five miles long. I think it was because trucks were banned from the roads on Sunday and whit Monday. Lucky we were going the other way! We still haven't had the hood up yet. Let's hope it stays that way.Read more

    July 2, 2015 in Spain

    Shortly we arrived at the hotel. The hotel made a mistake and instead of giving us one room he gave us two rooms for the same price.

    They had whirlpool in the bath tub. A long bath was the best thing after 45km!!

    Afterwards we washed our clothes in our "washing machine" which was the whirlpool 😂😂

    Mirador de Flysch

    July 5 in Spain

    Bon dia! Hi ha unes ovelles matineres que deuen haver passat pel costat de la furgo perquè s'escolta en molt a prop. Avui m'he llevat la primera i he decidit deixar-los dormir. S'han llevat a les 10h. Al sortir de la furgo... Sorpresa!! Han muntat un xiringuito a fora! Allà, enmig del no res. I després ho entenem... El Camino passa per allà! Hi ha ple de peregrinos. Fem l'esmorzar i anem a seure a les taules del merendero, xerrem amb alguns peregrins. Després de recollir, anem cap al mirador, i també tenim la intenció de fer una petita excursió circular. Fins al mirador molt bé, hi ha mig km. És molt bonic, veiem els precipicis i el mar cantàbric. Però al cel hi ha uns núvols que sembla que vagin a descarregar en qualsevol moment... I decidim marxar cap a la furgo I fer l'excursió un altre dia. Ens posem de camí a Vitòria I decidim dinar a un restaurant avui. On dinarem?... Continuarà...Read more

    Technical update

    May 22 in Spain

    Fingers crossed, all is good so far.
    Yesterday I put about 3/4 point of oil in the engine which over filled it a bit but not enough to worry about and half a pint of water in the radiator.
    I realised that when I'm cold I can create a heater in the car by pulling up the boot which sits on the lower half of the gear lever. There is quite a draft of warm air comes out. Shouldn't need it much from now on as it has got rather warm today.Read more

    Easy walking day to Deba

    September 5, 2017 in Spain

    I challenged myself last night and slept in a top bunk. I was always afraid I would fall out. Luckily that was an unwarranted fear but I should have practiced getting out as I worried about putting my foot on the head of the elderly(, moreso than me even) man who was in the bottom bunk.
    I eventually just threw caution to the wind and managed to get off the bed and onto the floor without incident.
    I set out at 7, just as it was beginning to get bright. I had put my backpack outside to pack up so as not to wake anyone. I went inside to check my space and when I went back out eccentric English bloke was sitting beside my bag looking to me like a bloody stray dog. I thought this was your pack says he. Isaid 'goodbye', and headed out.
    The walk was beautiful, up and down hills, through woods and past farms and grapevines. I continue to pick and eat blackberries, which are mostly hard and sour. I wonder how many days I will do that before I learn to pass them by.
    The peaches here are big and sweet and juicy and best of all, cheap.
    I got to the hostel at 1.00 pm. 5 euro for the bunk. It is in the train station, second floor. I wonder how many trains will zip past at night.
    I had the menu del Dia for lunch, 11. 50 euro. Soup fresh salmon, flan and a bottle of wine. A bottle full, for just me! I maxed out at 2.5 glasses. I was taken aback that the salmon was on the bone. I immediately thought of Kathleen McElhinney, my friend in school in Glasgow
    Her dad chocked on a fishbone and died. I remember them carrying his coffin out of the flat and down to the church. I thought to myself ', I can eat that fish I might die like he did.' Well I didn't fall out of the bunk or choke on the fish. Big day all around. A swim, and then a walk about town, which took 5 mins. Now to find a bar to watch some football and eat some pinchos before bunk in in. Bottom this time.
