    A very lumpy one.

    April 17 in Spain

    Was worried about a late start - as it happens there was someone at reception sorting breakfast - not that I was aware breakie was included (may have been extra) For all that only got away at 8.50 but every little helps. On the plane coming over I saw Mundaka & Guernica and it looked flat as a pancake between the two. It was not. And that kind of summed up the day. Guernica is infamous for being where first tried out his Blitzkreig strategy during the Spanish Civil War, however rather than targetting miltary or industrial areas they tragetted civilians. The Air Raid Musuem based at a factory that wasn't targetted looked an interesting stop but was closed. Pushed on & upwards - 3+ miles of climbing. Then down to the first of numerous ports with attached vast expanses of sandy beach. Quick explore & then on to the next - Ondarroa - likely lunxh break, assuming it had a supermercado. It did & a beach side picnic did the job even though it was a shade under half way.Read more

    About 22kms to Albergue Izarbide

    September 15, 2017 in Spain

    A tough day, with lots of hills, rain and mud. It felt like much more than 22kms. However, we stopped in a few places along the way and (mostly!) enjoyed the journey.

    This is my second time to stay in this 'middle of nowhere' albergue. It's in a converted cowshed and there's a mix of nationalities here tonight. Great to have a hot shower, a clean bed and hopefully a nice dinner.

  • Day6

    About 23 kms from Getaria, with some challenging ups and downs. The hard surfaces (stones, asphalt and concrete) are tough on the feet and the joints. My blisters are sore, but alternating between boots and hiking sandals helps a lot.

    I took a few breaks along the way and met lots of familiar faces in Deba. I 'cheated' by taking the elevator down into the city - a great alternative to the steep descent on a hard surface.

    All in all, a nice walk with some fantastic views. I'll miss the seaside, but the mountains are beautiful too.

    Albergue Izarbide is really good - it's probably one of the best I've stayed in on any Camino. It's very well run, with male & female dorms, lockers, lights & plugs at each bed and an excellent communal dinner. Most of the people I met on my first night in Hondarribia are here, so it's lovely to see them all again.

    Mutriku - ES

    June 8, 2016 in Spain

    Another sweltering day from sunrise to sunset (21:20). After two nights in a hostel dormitory, the campsite tonight is going to seem quite peaceful. Not a bad view either :)

    Ziel erreicht... Spanien

    August 26, 2017 in Spain

    Navi wollte uns hier zwar nicht hinführen......aber wir können ja Schilder lesen :-) Die Fahrt führte an der Steilküste am Golf von Biscaja hoch zu unserem Campingplatz. Erst gab es einen totalen Schock: Fiesta auf den Platz vor der “rezeption“..... enge Plätze......aber dann...... neuer Platz mit super Aussicht..Und endlich Ruhe :-) Einziges Problem: Detlef prognostiziert Regen die nächste Woche ..Read more

    Nature

    July 3, 2015 in Spain

    We walked the entire morning through the forests and mountains. Beautiful nature, but also many pilgrims. Every hour we overtake at leased 10 pilgrims. Our average speed was 5.6 km/h. It was around 37 degrees, but the tree top gave us shade and protected us from the heat.

    The long but easy way

    July 14, 2017 in Spain

    Tag 8: 14.07.2017

    The long but easy way

    19,6 tiefenentspannte Kilometer, da eher ein sehr langer Spaziergang denn wirkliches Klettern. In 7 Stunden ging es in Serpentinen die Berge hinauf und hinunter aber immer in völlig moderatem Tempo und auf meist super ausgebauten Fahrstrassen oder Betonpisten. Also tatsächlich eher ein Spaziergang und nach dem Tag davor, eine echte Erholung. Warum die anderen so einen Hype um diese Etappe gemacht haben, konnten wir ehrlich gesagt nicht verstehen.

    Landschaftlich war mal wieder alles dabei, von herrlichen Ausblicken über gemütliche farnbewachsene Waldwege hin zum "Alpenfeeling" mit Kühen und Kaltblütern. Besonders schön waren die alten Bauernhäuser auf dem Weg anzusehen, die sich z.T. einsam und verlassen in die Landschaft fügten. Und Donkey war natürlich mein persönliches Highlight. ❤️
