    Belorado

    September 2, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    Gestern Abend waren wir im Restaurant "Wanderlust"- wunderbare Stimmung, süßes Betreiberpärchen, die sich letztes Jahr auf dem Camino kennengelernt haben und darauf jenes Restaurant in Santo Domingo de la Calzada eröffnet haben. Alle Gerichte hausgemacht und frisch! Pünktlich von den Nonnen ins Bett gebracht, fiel das Aufstehen auch nicht schwer. Heute wieder ohne Rucksack, der jetzt aber ein Dorf weiter abgeliefert wurde, als ich laufen wollte....whatever, was sind schon 4 km, wenn ich doch den ganzen Tag ohne laufen durfte. Wir sehen täglich mehr Leute wirklich erbarmungswürdig humpeln, mit wirklich üblen Blasen, Knieproblemen und oft viel zu schweren Rucksäcken. Es ist einfach auch Glück, davon verschont zu bleiben.Read more

    Grañon

    August 30, 2016 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    I walked these two sections today - about 18 miles. Tomorrow I'm going to give my feet a rest and just walk about 9 miles.

    Today was the first day that I walked mostly by myself. I started out with 3 people, the the group grew to four. But two had to take a break because they weren't feeling well, one walked ahead, one young guy found a group closer to their age, and yesterday, the last two, a married couple decided to stop earlier in the say than I had planned.

    I walked a while with three Germans, and learned an interesting alternative to the standard Hansel and Gretel story in which Hansel and Gretel are the bad guys. They will be stopping their Camino tomorrow. I hope to find some new walking partners soon!

    Granon: tonight's pause

    July 5, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Keeping steady at about 20/23k per day. Found a hostel that was an old farmhouse turned into a creative hostel. We had a community dinner with everyone who stayed at the hotel. Tomorrow is a surprise stop, we'll let the suspense build, if you look ahead on the map you may guess..Read more

    Grañón

    June 30, 2015 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 35 °C

    Skön men varm vandring. Skulle checkat in i kyrkans härbärge men det var fullt där. Fick plats på ett annat mycket spartanskt i närheten. Varit på ytterligare kvällsmässa. Pilgrimsvälsignelse igen, ca 50 pilgrimer var med på mässan.Read more

    Grañón

    August 13, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    In Grañón übernachten wir in einer alten Kirche. Eine der Abende/Nächte die definitiv in Erinnerung bleiben.

    Nach der Ankunft genieße ich erst einmal in Ruhe die Sonne und ein Bier gemeinsam mit Matteo.
    Anschließend geht’s zurück und die Herberge, wo alle Pilger gemeinsam kochen. Vor dem Essen gibts dann noch eine kurze Pilgermesse in der Kirche und anschließend wird gemeinsam gegessen und abgespült.
    Das wirklich besondere an diesem Abend ist aber das Ritual, das nach dem Essen stattfindet. „The Pilgrim-Candle“. Wir sitzen im Kreis in einem nur von Kerzenschein erfüllten Raum und es wird eine Kerze herumgereicht. Derjenige der die Kerze in Händen hält teilt seine Gedanken und/oder Gründe zum Jakobsweg mit den anderen. Das ganze ist sehr emotional, auch wenn ich nicht alles verstehen kann, da es so mancher Pilger bevorzugt in seiner Muttersprache zu sprechen, aber das spielt keine Rolle, die Emotionen sind auch so greifbar. Ich verliere völlig das Zeitgefühl aber vermutlich dauert das ganze ewig, da wir annähernd 50 Personen sind.

    Anschließend geht’s dann noch in eine nahegelegene Bar.

    Stayed in a parish and cooked, sang and ate with the amazing "hospitaleros".

    Azofra to Granon

    September 1, 2016 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    A beautiful day with lots of wheat and hay fields. We traveled mostly on farm roads with lots of rolling hills. We stopped in Santo Domingo to visit the cathedral. The hens are still housed there. It's a wonderful legend about the hens and the church. We walked another 4 miles to Granon. Once again the church is in the center of town. While we were walking around town the bells began to ring and people walking from the town and others driving in began to arrive for a funeral.Read more

    Camino 5 Santa Domingo to Burgos

    July 7, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Our longest day at 71km, is also a pretty hilly one, yet one of our favourite days.
    Our lovely host prepared an extensive breakfast early for us, so we could be out the door and on the road by 7am in a bid to get our km done as early as possible.
    Much as we wanted to stop and indulge in second breakfast at a shady cafe in a gorgeous village, with music drifting out, we press on to get our first climb out the way.
    It goes on a while, it's hot and there are a LOT of flies, but at least it's followed by a downhill into a tiny town and lunch.
    We feel like we've made good headway but the afternoon climb is harder still, with some of the track too bony to even attempt, and the heat pressing down on us. We're kind of enjoying it though, and in great moods. A lovely, shady spot provides a welcome break, before we indulge in a spectacular and rideable descent down towards Burgos.
    Not a promising-looking city, with an ugly, industrial, long and busy entry, but round the final corner is our hotel, on the brink of the gorgeous and traffic-free old city.
    A night of sangria and tapas rewards our long, hot and fun day's riding!

    Grañón - Residencial El Cuartel

    September 24, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Another good day weather wise. A few sprinkles that never turned into rain. We stopped by the road and met a man with a blue unicorn who gifted it to Mia. We stopped in Santo Domingo de la Calzada for a delicious lunch at the Wanderlust Restaurant that I'd heard about. We pushed on to Grañón and settled into the Spanish version of the Bates Motel. We walked into town and found a tasty dinner so all is well.

    Otro buen día en Camino con el clima. Algunas chispas que nunca se convirtieron en lluvia. Nos detuvimos en el camino y nos encontramos con un hombre con un unicornio azul que se lo regaló a Mia. Nos detuvimos en Santo Domingo de la Calzada para un delicioso almuerzo en el restaurante Wanderlust. Continuamos hacia Grañón y nos instalamos en la versión española del Motel Bates. Entramos a la ciudad y encontramos una sabrosa cena, así que todo está bien.
