    Day 32. Carrión to Ledigos, Camino.

    September 5, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 12 °C

    The journey today is the most difficult of the Meseta. It starts with 18km of no shade and no villages. We have to carry water and food with us.
    Terry and Geraldine from Ireland helped us get accommodation today. We tried last night but our Vodafone sims were not working. We were worried about beds for tonight because Carrión was full last night. We got 2 beds in a dorm for Terradillos using Terry Murphy’s phone.
    We left Carrión de los Condes by crossing the 16th century bridge and passing the 10th century Benedictine Monasterio de San Zoilo. This had originally been built as a convent but was used by the royal family of Castilla y Leon as their court.
    We found a little pop up cafe called the Oasis at the halfway mark. We took a break but it was not very hygienic. We just bought bananas.
    We had lunch in a small village Calzadilla de la Cueza with Terry and Geraldine where we also met Yin.

    Camino 7 Fromista to Sahagun

    July 9, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    One of the easiest days, but not so interesting as it's completely flat and largely skirting villages and farms. We just ride on, seeking out the yellow arrows that lead the way to Santiago. Today we can take our time, so we stop for a good lunch of paella followed by Toblarone ice cream - a new favourite.
    Sahagun seems a charmless, agricultural town. We wander through the centre before dinner, and stop for a beer outside the cathedral. It's quiet, although everywhere is quiet before 8pm, when Spanish families come out to play and eat!

    Carrión de los Condes to Ledigos

    October 3, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    10.1.2017 Sunday
    The early cool mornings are probably the most pleasant. Most of Spain is still asleep and all you see is your fellow peregrinos starting out another day. Mentally, you have a clear mind. You are relaxed. Feels good not to have to do anything in the day other than walk......

    The churches along the way are truly amazing. The large cathedrals are beautiful but then there are the small simple looking churches that you walk into and their beauty amazes you. They capture your soul.

    382 km kvar till Santiago de Compostela

    July 7, 2015 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Fantastisk vandring, spännande människor, mycket mellanrum med intressanta samtal. Underbar natur. Intressanta härbärgen. Upplyftande pilgrimsgudtjänster.

    Är det du Mats på bilden? Har du tappat (dubbel)hakan och skaffat skägg?
