    Rest day - Léon

    May 14, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    Guess who joined me in Léon - my mom! She'll be walking with me until Santiago. A different adventure begins! Léon (the city of the Lion) is smaller than I imagined but very nice with lovely and warm people. Walking on tomorrow with my new heard

    Well we came to Spain to eat...

    June 30, 2015 in Spain ⋅ 🌙 82 °F

    And eat we did! Tonight we ate the most amazing desert; coconut cream wrapped in thin slice of pineapple. Drizzled on top was a delightful raspberry sauce. Buen provecho! Desert seems to be the theme of the day. For lunch, we ended with a chilled berry soup with a drop of vanilla ice cream. Also here are some photos of the beautiful Burgos cathedral.Read more

    September 13, 2018 in Spain ⋅ 🌙 18 °C

    We arrived to Leon just before sunset. The room we booked was just next to the cathedral in Leon's old town. We went to have dinner in a really nice restaurant named "niMU". The food was great, and Yam slept really well...

    LEON - Rest Day

    September 26, 2018 in Spain ⋅ 🌙 14 °C

    Had a lovely lay in bed this morning just resting, home cooked bacon & eggs followed by terrace coffee in the sun, before washing some clothes and resting. Visted the amazing cathedral in Leon and finished the day with some drinks. Met up with some younger pilgrams for dinner in a little local resturant and fished with a walk around town. Snuck back into the apartment in the evening and fell asleep ready to start the day walking tomorrow! Buen Camino xxRead more

    Second day of rest ☺

    We returned to the León Cathedral to see the museum and were treated to see a huge open market in the plaza. The size and quality of the produce was outstanding. Then off to the museum.
    Unfortunately, no photos were allowed in the Cathedral so I can only say it had an incredible display of artifacts from the 10th to 17th century.
    At night the streets were filled with people (I think all of Leon) celebrating with bands playing throughout the streets. It was quite the spectacle!

    Cathedral León
    We visited this French inspired 13th-16th century cathedral in the late morning (today was one of the rare days we were able to sleep in 😴and rest our weary feet 💅). Upon entry there are 128 stained glassed windows with a surface of 1800 sq metres. Absolutely breathtaking. It took over am hour just for the audio tour and we'd have to return Saurday just to visit the museum.

    Probably haven't mentioned that all of Spain still takes a siesta in the afternoon. Typically from about 1:30 -4:00 pm (and later) All stores are closed and only some cafes and tourist shops are open.

    Evening was a relaxing gathering in our apartment with 4 of our lovely Canadian Camino friends. 🍷🍷🍷

    In the evening we enjoyed the Mideval festival feast and entertainment.

    San Martin del Camino - Casa Verde Albg.

    October 4 in Spain ⋅ 🌙 45 °F

    My first alarm went off at 6am and I shut it off and tried to sleep until the 6:30am. I turned on the lights and started packing the bag I send ahead. I walked to the albergue and dropped it off while everyone else was getting ready. Today was the first day of the Camino for Isabel and Maria and they both did really well. We took the non-scenic route that followed the highway as there were more towns along the way to use a bathroom. Mia is still not feeling well, she has the head cold and tummy bug now. We arrived at our albergue and NO ONE is here. We've been sitting in the kitchen area for 40 minutes waiting. Another 20 minutes and we going to settle in and hope for the best. We have a reservation for 3 beds so guess who is sleeping with whom.

    Mi primera alarma sonó a las 6 a.m. y la apagué e intenté dormir hasta las 6:30 a.m. Encendí las luces y comencé a empacar la bolsa que envío por delante. Caminé hasta el albergue y lo dejé mientras todas las demás se preparaban. Hoy fue el primer día del Camino para Isabel y María, y a ambas les fue muy bien. Tomamos la ruta no escénica que siguió a la carretera ya que había más ciudades en el camino para usar un baño. Mia todavía no se siente bien, ahora tiene la gripa de cabeza y la panza. Llegamos a nuestro albergue y NADIE está aquí. Llevamos 40 minutos sentadas en el área de la cocina esperando. Otros 20 minutos y nos instalaremos y esperamos lo mejor. Tenemos una reserva para 3 camas, así que adivina quién se acuesta con quién.
