    Irgendwo in Kantabrien

    August 1 in Spain

    Nach der abenteuerlichen Nacht fahren wir schon früh los, da es regnet. Wir kommen an einen kleinen Stellplatz in Kantabrien, bei dem Ort Cobreces. Von unserem Platz haben wir Blick auf die Kirche.
    Gestern haben wir eine kleine Zugfahrt mit einem Touristenzug gemacht, da die Fahrt umsonst war (Wir wissen nicht ganz warum). Danach haben wir noch eine Wanderung entlang der Klippen zu einem Aussichtspunkt gemacht. Es war wunderschön. Die Landschaft gefällt uns nach wie vor ausgesprochen gut. Das Wetter war so mittel. Ziemlich bewölkt, aber zum Glück kein Regen.
    Heute sieht das Wetter komplett anders aus. 35 Grad und kein Wölkchen. Wir entscheiden noch einen Tag zu bleiben und gehen an den Strand.
    Kaum zu glauben - unser letzter Strandtage nach knapp drei Monaten an der Küste.

    Liérganes

    April 22 in Spain

    With another 140km under our belts we arrived at the town of Liérganes. It was Sunday and Sunday in Liérganes meant market day. The high street was packed as we crawled past stalls and shoppers towards the car park, becoming increasingly pessimistic about our chances of finding a spot. We were right to be worried, half a dozen vans, lorries, a coach and many, many cars filled the place we'd hoped to spend the night, as well as the surrounding streets. The service area was thankfully still free, so we backed the van in and took our time filling and emptying, whilst keeping an eye out for anyone leaving. Fortunately a car vacated its space and we were able to nip in before anybody else.

    After lunch we took the short walk past the train station and accross the river to the bustling market. Perusing the goods proffered under the arched branches of Plane trees, we found many things to interest us; food stalls sold cheeses, hams, eggs, processed fish, fruit, veg and honey as well as dried goods. There was a specialist tea stall where we found some cardamom for Vicky's chai and a dried fruit stall where we bought pineapple for our museli mix. Unlike many markets, there wasn't any sellers of street food, probably because of the multitude of cafés lining the pavement. We treated ourselves to some delicious cream cakes at a pasteleria (cake shop) and took them back to the van along with an ice cream for Vicky.

    As the day progressed, the car park remained busy and the occasional intercity train rumbled into the terminus, departing with a high pitched 'peep' of the whistle. As the light faded the clouds darkened and a thunderstorm broke over us, the sky illuminated with electric flashes of light and the air wrought with peals of thunder.

    Come morning, the day visitors had departed, leaving just the lorries and vans to slowly make their way to destinations new.

    Santillana del Mar

    July 7 in Spain

    We walked around the old town of Santillana del Mar this morning. It is characteristic of old Spain. The buildings are all 500 years old and it is like going back in time to the Medieval period. We expected a band of medieval knights to canter around the cobbled street corner at any moment.

    We found a museum dedicated to the Spanish Inquisition and the methods of torture used were not only explained in vivid detail, but the actual implements were on display. It is staggering to see the cruelty that was instigated by the church against accused heretics. If we lived then we would be on the receiving end quite likely.

    The old church bells rang forth each hour and the roosters were crowing and the horses were saddled. It was a real taste of old Spain. If you are in northern Spain, do now miss this delightful village.

    Playa De Somo

    September 6 in Spain

    We left Madrid in the morning, not before we had breakfast in the VIP restaurant that the hotel guy told us about. He probably never been there, but still he recommended it even tht its not the best choice...
    We started driving towards the coast, and expected to stop when Yam will wake up. She slept for 4 hours :)
    We arrived to the hotel in Langria, and went to the beach next by. I rented a surfboard and went surfing, and Yaara and Yam drenk coffee in the Cafe right on the beach.
    Yam kept sleeping, so Yaara and I decided to walk around town to find a place to eat. We had burgers in a nice restaurant, and went back to the hotel...

    Santander

    September 7 in Spain

    I woke up early, and surfed in playa de Somo. When Yam woke up, we went to Santander. A really beutiful city on the coast. We made laundry, had breakfast in one of the squares, and spent the day around the city.
    At evening we got back to Somo, I got 40 minutes of surfing before the sun went down, and we had dinner in our favourite burger place.

  • Day11

    Nach einer Nacht in einer mehr als grauenhaften Herberge🙈18 Betten auf ca 35qm voller Spark gehts weiter in Traumhafter Stiller Natur. Du kleine Bergdörfer die nur von eigen Produkten leben über das große Touristische Laredo. Mit traumhaften langen weißen Stränden. Ich merke aber je mehr ich hier in der fast unberührten Natur laufe desto krasser ist es dann die Menschenmassen in den großen Städten zu sehen. Unterwegs trifft man auch höchstens auf eine Handvoll Pilger . Bevor sich dann in den Herbergen wieder alles trifft. Ich bin so froh und dankbar diese Erfahrung machen zu dürfen. Es verändert jetzt schon so viel in mir...was braucht man wirklich zum Leben?????
    Und das wichtigste ist, das ich mehr und mehr in die Gesundung gehe
    Heute Km 233

Liebe, Herzlichkeit wo ich nur hinschaue. Bei den Einwohnern, bei den Pilgern, bei mir mir mir und in jedem Winkel das ist der Camino ❤️
    Die Etappe heute war wieder so schön und ich weiß warum ich den Camino del Northe gewählt habe!!!Auch wenn Mittlerweile die Füße schmerzen und die Schuhe dampfen...die Sonne brennt🙏🏻ich liebe esRead more

    Santoña-Güemes

    July 6 in Spain

    Heute zeigte der Camino alles was er zu bieten hat🌞schönste Natur, geniale Strände, brütende Sonne starkes Gewitter und wandern in Schlamm, Gestein, Sand und Teer.
    Eine Etappe von 26 km, was eigentlich locker zu schaffen ist.Nur waren die letzten 10 km auf harter Teerstrasse bei fast 40 Grad. Die Füße haben gedampft und echt geschmerzt. Auch wenn keine Blase vorhanden ist schmerzen die Fußballen heute extrem.....aber das ist der Camino.
    Dafür gab es die Belohnung nach der Etappe mit einer genialen Herberge und einem richtig tollen essen für 60 Pilger😊
    Km 255

    Sleepover Day 6

    July 25 in Spain

    Just the most beautiful beach with lots of rocky outcrops to explore. At one stage, a dog, covered in mud run down onto the beach and created a crowd as he was clearly not with his owner. People were trying to hand feed him bottles of mineral water, actually He was perfectly okay and just enjoy lots and lots of fuss. Parking spot not amazing, but well worth it for the beach.
