    Cheater cheater

    September 19, 2017 in Spain

    I keep cheating on this trip. And today I counted the stages and the days I have left to walk, and I am going to have to cheat if I want to get to Santiago by the 5th of October.

    Yesterday I left beautiful Gijon ...... At 2!!
    What happened, welllll check out at the hostal was at 12, so I had to take advantage of that, and when I was ready to leave, Kristien sent me a msg that she was on her way to Gijon, because her slipper!! (Aka flip flop) had broken!!! Just before starting one of the most difficult stages of this camino! 😂😂😂 This girl is a hoot! She is too funny!
    So I decided to wait for her to say hi and ended up walking through half of the city to find a room for her for the night. She ended up staying at the hotel with the dinosaur 😬.

    So I went on my way en route to Aviles. The road out of Gijon was ugly, but interesting. A lot of heavy industry, like ArcelorMittal. Then a long walk through the woods, only the lonely, and finally for the last 5 km, I took a train. It was already after 6, my foot was hurting and I just wanted to get to the albergue.

    Finally in Aviles.... Another nice town... I just love Spain..... I arrive at the albergue, and there is Lina sitting in the kitchen. She offered me leftover pasta, which was heeeeeeeerlijk! So thankful! Only thing left to do was take a showet and go to bed! Slept hopi bon, af en toe awake and a snore here and there, but all in all a good night.

    This morning, I had already decided that I was going to take a train to the beach, so I would skip the industrial outskirts of Aviles. I had a tortilla with bread at the beach, heerlijk. A lady came to talk to me to ask if I was doing the camino and offered me cafe at her house, but it was all the way on the other side..... I had to be on my way anyway.... I started my camino around 11:30 and arrived here at Morus de Nalon around 4:30. It was a nice camino today, very peaceful, although sometimes when I am walking in the woods all alone, it is kind of scary. But then I think, there is probably always a peregrino/a not far away, walking behind me.... Not such a good thought, when you are with your bare ass in the air because you have to pee for the 100th time ...... 😝😝

    Btw, I walked the whole route on sandals today and it went well! So happy I bought them last year. Ciaoo

    In Muros de Nalon

    June 16, 2017 in Spain

    What a great day, even though too much of it was on asphalt. We have met some very nice people, Brit, Chinese, and Australian, and Paco was very sad to have to leave.

    25 km down to the beach and up to the headlands, down to the river and up into the hills, through a few towns, and there we were. A lovely Albergue, really nice.

    After washing up and changing into clean clothes (the Albergue washed our clothes for a few euros), we had a quick grilled sandwich and then hopped on the bus to go visit Cudillero, a little touristy village on the coast. So pretty, hidden in a cove, lots of climbing up and down.

    We had a great time, and then Paco had to head for the airport. He called a cab, we all piled in, and he dropped us off on his way to the airport. It was so great to see him, we had a really good time.

    So now here I sit in my Albergue in Muros de Nalon, enjoying the wonderful albergue. Tomorrow off on a short 16 km walk to Soto de Luiña maybe with a coastal detour.

  • Day25

    Bin von Gijon mit dem Zug nach Soto del Barco gefahren und von dort nach Muron gelaufen.
    Leider ging bei der Buchung der Herberge etwas schief und ich hatte plötzlich kein Bett.
    Nach erfolglosen herum telefonieren, habe ich dann glücklicherweise das letzte Bett in der öffentlichen Herberge bekommen.
    Kurz nachdem ich dort ankam, traf Sandra aus der Schweiz mit Corinna aus Frankfurt ein.
    Die Hospitalieros kochten und es gab ein gemeinsames Essen.Read more

    28.09.2017 - Muros de Nalón

    September 28, 2017 in Spain

    Wieder zeitig los und vorher lecker in einer schönen Bar gefrühstückt. Die ersten km durch das Industriegebiet von Gijon werden mit dem Bus überbrückt. Schnell weg von Ölraffinerien und Eisengießereien. Dann führt eine schöne Wanderstrecke nach Muros de Nalón. Und kurz vor dem Ziel wieder die bekannte Steigung, damit der Feierabend auch verdient ist. Dafür eine wunderschöne und saubere Herberge gefunden. Das absolut Beste bisher, dafür gibt es eine klasse Bewertung.👍😊
    Mit einem östereichschen Radfahrer wird noch ein Feierabendbierchen getrunken. Auch Peregrino Gerhard ist mit seiner belgischen Begleitung hier untergekommen und wir haben uns noch etwas unterhalten, bevor es in die Koje geht.

    Scheiss Herbergen

    August 10 in Spain

    Ich dachte ich kann entspannt weiter laufen und habe die Herberge für heute gebucht. Anscheinend ging da was schief, oder die 70jährige war mit dem Buchingsvorgang überfordert, auf jeden fall stand ich jetzt nachmittags um 3 ohne Bett da. Alternative wäre wieder ein Hotel gewesen.
    Habe mal Glück gehabt und das letzte Bett in der öffentlichen Herberge bekommen. Uff!!!
    Sitz gerade vor der Herberge und rauche eine, kommt Sandra, die Schweitzerin, an.
    Muss noch für übermorgen reservieren.
