About a roadtrip, a cat and the first little Camino touch.
I am in the lucky circumstance that I can drive to the Camino. It is 'just' crossing a little mountain range (Picos de Europa, the one I look at every day from my garden) and then the Meseta.
However it was an extremely beautiful roadtrip I haven't been extremely happy today. One of my cats was missing when I left home. Yesterday morning I saw her for the last time. My housesitters were on the lookout and there was nothing else I could do than just leave and hope she would return soon. But she has been on my mind the whole trip today.
I arrived in Zamora around 6.00PM and then found out that the lodging I had prebooked was actually in... Calle Santiago. I didn't want to stay in the lovely municipal albergue, because I wasn't a pilgrim yet. The plan is to catch a train tomorrow evening to Puebla de Sanabria and start walking from there the day after tomorrow.
As roadtrips can also make you sweaty, I improvised a clothes line in my hotelroom and washed my clothes in the sink like I walked all day.
And then, just before bedtime, I got a message from my housesitters. My little baby is back (archive photo). So all is well now.Read more
