    Bankje!

    August 5, 2020 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    Een bankje gespot in de schaduw, dus tijd om wat te lezen! De eerste tien kilometer samen met een vrouw gefietst die ook richting Santiago ging. Dat was erg gezellig! Samen op de foto geweest bij de kathedraal van Burgos, maar die moet ze nog even sturen. Ohja! Net zag ik ook een hertje met een babyhertje en ik heb al heeel vele konijnen gespot vanochtend. Nog 30km te gaan vandaag! (als het goed is haha)Read more

    Burgos to Hornillos del Camino (Estépar)

    September 27, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    9.27.2017 Wednesday

    And so, well rested, we continue our journey once again. Early to rise and on our way by 7:30 am. Of course, first stop is a local coffee bar for cafè and croissant. Oddly, todays 13 mile (20k) walk is an easy day. The first half was a flat walk where we met new pilgrims (Australians, Brazilians, Virginians) and several familiar faces. After a refreshmemt (and relief) stop we came upon a quaint church where nuns gave a blessing and a Blessed Virgin medal. From there we walked up and up and up through dry, hot, fields. A time for contemplation.
    We arrived at our casa rural El Melino del Camino. A beautiful serene home in the middle of nowhere. After booking, we discovered this is where Martin Sheen filmed a scene from "The Way" His grandson actually fell in love with proprietor's daughter, married her and they own the casa. This wonderful peaceful home felt like a gift from God.

    Behind the Scenes - Life on the Camino

    September 27, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    Our photos are all beautiful and full of smiles. So what is a typical day really like.

    Up by 6:30am -
    Showering the night before might give you a few minutes more to sleep.

    Check the weather forecast -
    Determine how many layers and in which order to wear them. No need to worry about what to choose from because you only have two of everything.

    Repack your backpack-
    ... and hope the clothes you washed the night before are dry. Pin wet clothes to the outside of your backpack.

    Tape your feet! -
    The most important part of the Camino is foot preparation. If you had a hot spot yesterday, protect it today. Compeed bandage if it's a blister. Paper tape or bandaid if it's a area that rubs and may cause a blister. Some put Vaseline on their feet everyday. Others put paper tape on the bottom of their feet to prevent blisters.
    No guarantees anything works 100%

    The walk.
    Don't forget your trekking poles!
    For some reason, most days, the walk began up hill. Easy if you're 20, harder if you're trying to keep up with the 20 year olds. The pace is up to you. We seem to start out at a middle of the road pace. We would pass by many people (now friends) who walked quite slow. At the end of the day, they always caught up. They must have left at 6am because they were always ahead in the morning.

    IT'S NOT A RACE. Easy to remember because everyone walks at different pace.
