    Viva la Santiago de Compostella!

    July 31, 2017 in Spain

    Da vi for i forgårs havde 70 kilometer tilbage, besluttede vi os for at tage de sidste kilometer på 2 dage. Første dag bød på en 28 kilometers tur til byen Arzur. Det var egentlig ikke en særlig slem dag. Benene havde det godt, formen er kommet og fødderne har dannet hård hud de mest udsatte steder. Der værste var i går. Lidt over 40 km, og de sidste 10 kilometers var næsten op ad bakke hele vejen. Det er sjovt som man kan bruge 2 timer på at gå 10-12 kilometer om morgenen, og 2 timer på at gå 2-4 kilometer sidst på dagen når man er helt kvæstet.

    I løbet af de sidste 300 kilometer har vi fundet ud af nogle ting om Spanien.

    1) De kan ikke snakke engelsk. Hvis det ikke er et turisted sted, så er de dårligere til engelsk end dem fra Frankrig. De snakker spansk til en, man forstår lidt igennem fakter og svarer dertil på engelsk. Det forstår de ikke og 'lang historie kort': Man bruger 3 minutter på at bestille en øl og en steak.

    2) man får hvad man bestiller. Står der på menukortet: 'Sandwich with Chorizo' så er det dét man får. Brød og chorizo. Ingen mayo, salat, tomat eller ost eller lignende. Kun brød og chorizo. Det gælder alle steder. Bestiller man en burger, og overser at der IKKE står 'Homemade' - så forvent ikke at det er hjemmelavet.

    3) Maden. Maden er for det meste dårligere end vores danske standarder. Kødet er af og til rådt i midten (også hakkekødet), det meste smager af "opvarmede færdigretter", medmindre man besøger de dyre restauranter og paellaen er kun god de fine steder (ellers smager den færdiglavet eller blot af salt).

    Nu når vi er ankommet i Santiago er det en god tur vi kan se tilbage på. Der har været op og nedture, men i sidste ende har det været det hele værd!!!
    Nu glæder vi os til at imødegå en tid uden vabler (i hvert fald uden flere vabler), i gode hotelsenge og ikke dårlige liggeunderlag, og sidst men ikke mindst - en masse fedtivitas de næste par dage! <3

    Even a Pilgrim ...

    October 14, 2017 in Spain

    ... needs to rest.

    After 35 days of walking, Coleen and I are content to trade out our hiking boots for sandals for the balance of our time here in Spain. We returned to Santiago de Compostella for a second time this morning. Our total mileage on the 3 Caminos we've hiked is just north of 1,000 kilometers by my calculation.

    But truly as one Camino graffiti author wrote "Smiles, not miles, are what counts" and we've had thousands of those.

    Much like the Galician dirt and manure have insinuated themselves into my Scarpa boots, the call of the Camino has resonated deep in my soul. I expect we will return.

    Hasta luego from this side of the Atlantic and I look forward to catching up with all of you when we return to Canada.

    I did it my Way ...

    October 7, 2017 in Spain

    Combine 28 days, 799 kilometers, 3 blisters, one case of shin splints, numerous new friends, three cathedrals and then throw in some octopus, Galician stew, Rioja wine and almond cake and what do you get? An official latin Compostella and congratulations from the Pilgrim Office staff who verifies your credentials. Coleen and I have gone the distance.

    We sleep tonight in Santiago de Compostella at the Last Stamp Albergue under a waning full moon and a warm glow of accomplishment in our hearts.Read more

    Ultreia!

    October 7, 2017 in Spain

    The Way of St. James is behind us. We made it to the Cathedral in Santiago as the church bells chimed 10 AM - fondly referred to as "Chocolate Time" for Scott and I!

    We pilgrims have traded ‘Buen Camino’ which literally means ‘have a good journey, a good Camino’, for the past month. Lately, however, we've begun to hear "Ultreia". The meaning of ‘Ultreia!’ goes a bit deeper, implying encouragement to keep going, reaching ‘beyond’, heading onwards.

    I'm excited for paths that are beginning to reveal themselves, determined to seek out new adventures and opportunities, AND eager to hear where your paths are leading you.

    To Market

    October 14, 2017 in Spain

    I've been lured back to Santiago with the promise of a market ... AND what a market. The huge stone structure with aisles of fresh produce, seafood, meat, baking and wine, spreads out past its walls to the surrounding streets. Nearby businesses take advantage of the pedestrian traffic to line the alleys with restaurant tables.

    There is one aisle devoted to cooking food from the market to order. We didn't quite figure out how to accomplish that our first time through, but hopefully on Monday we will have more to report. Instead, we had a Pulpa (octopus) Crepe and some Pimiento de Padron (tiny roasted green peppers) to tide us over until supper and bought our fruit and bread for tomorrow's breakfast.Read more

    Difference Between Centuries

    October 14, 2017 in Spain

    I made it to Mass this morning and witnessed the botafumeiro spectacle. A huge incense burner, kept in motion by six priests, passes over the congregation. In times past, it was meant to fumigate pilgrims who didn't smell very good AND who might be carrying disease. This morning's masses applauded the event!

    We've another day to explore the city, many more to continue to find the light through the mists, to awaken to the unexpected, and to celebrate achievements large and small. We just have to keep moving. Buen Camino.Read more

    In Santiago

    July 4, 2017 in Spain

    Today we got a cab into Santiago from Muxia because all the buses are on strike. Not bad, 15€ each. That meant a 45 minute drive in a car instead of a slow boat 3 hour bus ride.

    So I had almost the whole day in Santiago to do my shopping. Spoiler alert -- olive oil and kids t-shirts were my highest priority. I had to get the oil in several batches, because it's heavy and it was hot. It was 90 degrees in Santiago today, which is almost unheard of.

    In the late afternoon, my two Aussie friends (both named Ann) got to meet each other in one of my favorite places in Santiago, the gardens of the Costa Vella hotel. (Dana, that's our place!). From there we moved to another favorite place, the Bodeguilla San Roque, for a tapas dinner. It was really a nice evening.

    So, one more day in Santiago and then my 22 hours traveling back to Champaign.

    Finisterre nach Santiago

    June 29, 2017 in Spain

    Heute morgen sind wir um 06:30 aufgestanden damit wir ja früh genug zur Bushaltestelle kamen. Der Bus fuhr um 08:20 Uhr und es waren wie erwartet jede Menge Menschen dort. Die letzten beiden Tage ist kein Bus gefahren, auch hier wird ab und zu gestreikt. Um 11 Uhr waren wir am Bahnhof, wo mich Susanna noch zum Frühstück eingeladen hat. Kurz darauf habe ich meine Herberge bezogen, die wirklich sehr zentral und neu ist. Beim Bummeln habe ich das Paar aus der Slowakei getroffen, die mich auf eine Cola einluden. Kurz darauf habe ich die Amerikanerin getroffen, die mit mir das Taxi zur Klinik in Astorga teilte. Sie fragte ob ich mit essen gehen wollte....leider hat sie mich versetzt. Sei es drum....schaue ich mir halt noch ein wenig Santiago an.Read more
