    Zamora - Montamarta 17.6.2018

    June 17, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    Über diese Etappe lässt sich nicht besonders viel berichten. Es ging im Grunde immer geradeaus auf einer breiten Schotterpiste durch Wiesen und Felder entlang der Autobahn, aber in ausreichendem Abstand. Wobei der heute gar nicht nötig gewesen wäre, denn niemand fuhr heute an diesem Sonntag.

    Nach 19 km war ich da. Wieder in einem völlig toten Nest. In der Bar müsste man sich anmelden und da lief auch schon die Flimmerkiste mit Fussball. Um 17 Uhr dürfen wir ran, bin gespannt über unseren Vortrag 😎

    Sonst bisher nichts von Belang passiert.

    Stand heute: 816 km 🚶🍀

    Zamora to Montamarta

    May 20, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Not a lot happening on today’s walk but it was pleasant - sun but a cool breeze, flat, and a good distance of 18km. Poppies, poppies, new green wheat, ploughed fields and a gravel path.

    I was planning to stay at the albergue at Montamarta, recently refurbished. Just as I was walking towards it I received a text from Guido, a nice Italian pelegrino slightly ahead, warning me that it had not been cleaned and was filthy. He was looking for a casa rural and suggested I do the same. The obvious choice has a proprietor with a poor reputation for his behaviour with women (verified by the locals) so that was out - even at my advanced age it’s a situation I’d prefer not to contemplate!

    But instead, opposite the best restaurant in town, a lovely Casa Rural with a friendly and helpful female owner. My own room, ensuite bathroom, lounge, washing machine, sunny garden, sheets and, oh joy! Towels! Hate the little plastic sponge thing I’m carrying. All for £20. And in the room next door I ran into Jo - an Aussie girl with whom I was previously walking but who had got ahead doing 40km days. What a nice surprise and she seemed pleased to see me too.

    Photos - lovely Zamora, walls and church, a stork apartment house on a church tower with every spot filled (the babies have hatched but without a telephoto lens they just look like white blobs - imagination needed!) And flowers, flat fields, the path and my Casa Rural lounge room.
