    Where's my bloody sticks?

    May 30 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Walking sticks are a blessing and a curse. They can give you a boost especially when you go up hills but a pain when you forget them. This is the second day in a row I've forgotten them. I've also nearly left my phone 3 times and my hat twice. My friends are having bets on what I'll lose first. That's the joy of getting up early and moving on.
    Today we walked inland away from the coast for the first time. To Guemes Hostel, considered by all the guides to be the best hostel on the whole route. I'd all ready walked 5km when I left the hostel the second time so I did 22 km today and was really exhausted by the time I got there. So tired I went the wrong way twice. It is a gorgeous hostel and everyone walking the route was there. 84 pilgrims that night. We all gathered to hear Father Ernesto talk about the hostel and its philosophy and the growing number of visitors from all around the world. The rooms were well designed and very comfortable. You could even sit up on the lower bunks without bumping your head unlike those at other hostels.

    Santoña to Guemes

    September 22, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    This was another nice walk, with no fixed plan for our final destination. We took the coastal option from the Santoña beach, which involved a short sharp climb on a narrow track. It certainly got the heart and lungs working! It felt a little precarious at times, but the views were worth it. I'd hate to try it in bad weather, though.

    We enjoyed the beach walk to Noja. After that, we followed the arrows to Castiillo and then to Meruelo and Güemes. I'll look at this on a map when I get home, but I suspect that the waymarked route to the albergue is not the most efficient one.

    There were 57 pilgrims from 20 countries in the Güemes albergue. It's an impressive operation and it was great to be away from the tourist trail and in a Camino environment. Surprisingly, I slept really well in spite of all the snoring!

    Tag 9: Sonne.. Sonne.. Sonnenbrand

    April 17, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Strecke: 28,5 km; HM: 550 m; von Santona nach Güemes.

    Der heutige Tag begann direkt mit schönsten Sonnenschein. So verließen wir den wunderschönen Ort bei aufgehender Sonne. Der ganze heutige Tag war total windstill wodurch die 21 Grad noch viel wärmer wirkten. Zeitgleich war natürlich das Meer sehr gewogen. Generell war es heute sehr ruhig. Neben tollen Strandbuchten sind wir zudem durch viele Ortschaften mit den bekannten wunderschönen spanischen Fincas gelaufen und es war heute, da wir weit entfernt von viel befahrenen Straßen waren einfach ruhig. Entspannt ruhig. Sonnig schöne blühende Wiesen. Jede Menge Tiere und Vögel, schöne Strandbuchten. Ein wahrer Tag zum Genießen. Das einzige was schade ist, dass einige direkte Küstenorte bis auf wenige Stellen noch wie eine Geisterstadt sind. Da hier scheinbar nur noch wenige Einheimische wohnen und viel auf Tourismus gesetzt wird. Die Badesaison hat halt noch nicht angefangen. Aber das zählt nicht für alle Orte. Übrigens ist nun das was die nächsten Tage am meisten weh tun wird vielleicht der Sonnenbrand. Denn der Rucksack ist mittlerweile keine Belastung mehr, sondern eher eine gewohnte Last. Man merkt ihn schon noch an den Schultern, aber das Gewicht ist vertraut.Read more

    Guemes

    September 10, 2017 in Spain ⋅ 🌧 59 °F

    Noja -Guemes 15.6k
    Beautiful walk to town, coffee by water. Then spent about 45 min trying to find arrows, which was ok because town very pretty. Asked a couple of people and finally found the route. Walked a while with an older Canadian couple which was nice. Stopped for kind of weird mushroom fry up, at least it was a veggie! Occasional light rain but mostly really nice day. The way to Guemes seemed long; I kept expecting to be there but the road went on and on. Finally got there, kind of in the middle of nowhere. WONDERFUL hostel. All arrivals were greeted with cup of cold water, food if hungry. Rooms really nice, green space in middle. I was in a room with Australians and kiwis, really nice people. I wandered down to the tiny village to get sweets, beautiful countryside. At 7:30 there was a talk in the chapel about the spirit of the albergue. I volunteer to translate for English, someone else for French. It was so much fun- the speaker was really funny and I tried (and mostly succeeded) in being funny too. I was famous at supper😌. After, there was a get-together in the chapel, uke and flute and singing. I interpreted again. Such a great group of people, a great place.Read more

    17.09.2017 - Güemes

    September 17, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Durch Noja gehts weiter Richtung Güemes.
    Nur einmal Regenkleider an, nach einer Stunde klärt es auf und ist das schönste Wanderwetter. In Güemes angekommen und schon auf die Herberge gefreut, wartet doch noch ein kurzer knackiger Anstieg, dafür werden alle Pilger mit einem Becher Wasser herzlich begrüßt.
    Nach einer gemeinsamen geschichtlichen Exkursion und Aufklärung zum Haus gab es leckeres Abendessen und hinterher einen Rotwein😉
