      The rain in Spain ....

      September 13, 2022 in Spain ⋅ ☁️ 18 °C

      It's been a nice enough walk today the rain being intermittent but it has come on very heavy atm. So taking shelter with my mate the Spanish pilgrim we have met countless times and share quite a few Albergues sleeping beside each other at least 3 times. We had a sort of conversation he's a nice guy Paolo l. A lot of today's walk so far has been in the shadow of the motorway with noise so I played my music for the first time while walking this trip and it has been very nice. I reckon I'm about 5 miles from Pedron but think a few hills aheadRead more

      Etapa 23: A Portela

      February 3 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 9 °C

      We set out for the day going mostly through fields and farmlands. We saw some goats and had a nice moment with them and fed them some nearby grasses. They were super appreciative of that despite being in a field full of grass.

      We then traveled along a small river for a while which led into a larger town where we had lunch. I had pork ribs which were super tasty, but the sauce was served separately so they were quite messy to eat. After dinner we walked out of the city, but along the way stopped by a political tent ( I’m not sure why we did this) and some members of the group had a conversation about one of the local candidates. We were also all handed political flyers. I read through mine and had to ask Juan Pablo for some translations. The party was supposedly the the center-right party but there proposed policy seemed to be left of the democrats. It was quite interesting to hear about how the Spanish election system works.

      We arrived to the Alburgue a little after sundown. They had a big soup, hard-boiled eggs and bread waiting for us that was available to eat for a donation. Quite a simple meal, but filling.

      After dinner, the Alburgue caretaker, Paco, and I talked a bit about American music. He was super in to American rock from the 70s and ended up showing me different YouTube videos for like an hour of the Beastie Boys, Prodigy, and Simpsons clips. I also tried to show him some newer artists I thought he might like and he subscribed to all of the YouTube channels of everyone I recommended.

      Der Weg der bewegt! !!

      May 19, 2016 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

      Der Tag ging von Pontevedra nach Alba nach Briallos. Ich bin heute körperlich und seelisch fix und fertig, habe Blasen an meinem linken und rechten Fussbalen und rechts eine Blutblase. Ich bin geschlichen wie eine Schnecke und dachte ich trage ein Kreuz. Meine ungeweinten Tränen habe ich heute auf dem Weg gelassen. Bin fix und fertig in der Herberge angekommen. Welch ein Tag :-(Read more
