    One day on the Norte

    June 28, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    While most of Europe, and the rest of Spain, are sweltering under a deadly heat wave, were still enjoying sunny skies and temperatures in the low 60s to mid 70s. Apparently the mountains we’ve been skirting for many days are holding back the heat wave.

    We had very little elevation change in today’s walk from Cadavedo to Luarca, which was most welcome to our legs! Yesterday we went down and up 7 times, about 70-100 meters each time.

    Fans of the Camino like to say, “The Camino provides,” meaning that what a pilgrim needs (not wants!) will somehow appear. It’s become kind of a joke. But sometimes it seems to be true. This morning, as we came to a yellow arrow showing a turn off our road, an older lady appeared and motioned for us to go a different way. That way would be much shorter, less climbing, go through that overpass, turn right, follow the signs... all of which turned out to be a great trail, past an old church and cemetery.

    Here are some pics that will show you what our day was like —

    Tag 10... Regen und viel Kaffee

    May 27, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Nach dem gestrigen Pilgermenue, was ganz ok war, wachen wir mit Regen auf. Nach den ersten 500m doch lieber Kaffee und abwarten. Nach ca. 1h dann doch in die Regenklamitten und los. Hilft ja nix. Eigentlich hatten wir Sonne gebuchtRead more

    Schönes Lluarca!

    September 28, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Wir sind heute nur 15km gelaufen, da wir uns von gestern etwas erholen wollten. Die Stadt ist super schön und verwinkelt. Eigentlich wollten wir uns an den Strand legen, aber "leider" kam in dem Moment die Flut. Wir haben uns ganz lange riesige Wellen angeschaut. Das war so spannend und gleichzeitig entspannend.
    Abends haben wir uns noch in die Stadt gesetzt und einfach die Sonne genossen.

    131. Etappe: Luarca

    November 19, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    Gut, dass ich ausschlafen konnte, denn die Etappe war nur sehr klein. Und so machte ich einige Zwischenstopps und genoss den schönen Sonnentag und die schönen Waldwege.
    Mein Etappenort Luarca liegt malerisch an einer Flussmündung. Da ich so früh dran war, hatte ich noch genug Zeit einen ausgedehnten Stadtrundgang zu machen und den Friedhof, der auf den Klippen liegt, zu besichtigen.
    Morgen hab ich endlich mal wieder 30 km vor mir. Da freu ich mich schon drauf! Auch wenn es morgen nicht ganz so sonnig werden soll.

    Los Cantiles

    July 30, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Nach detn Stop am Strand fahren wir weiter an einem Campingplatz, der uns empfohlen wurde. Und es hat sich gelohnt hier her zu fahren! Der Campingplatz "Los Cantiles" liegt in einem kleinen galizischen Örtchen in dem es einen kleinen Fischerhafen gibt. Außer dem Campingplatz gibt es aber keinen Tourismus, also ist hier kaum was los.
    Wir haben Glück und bekommen einen erste Reihe Platz. Da in der erste Reihe fast nur Deutsche stehen, haben wir das Gefühl das die deutsche Besitzerin uns ein wenig bevorzugt. Glück für uns!
    Das Wetter ist ziemlich bewölkt, aber ab und zu schaut die Sonne raus. Der Strand ist ein schöner Steinstrand an dem kaum Menschen sind. Der Weg dorthin ist zwar relativ anstrengend, aber es lohnt sich.
    Wir bleiben hier zwei Tagen und genießen das "Wellenrauschen", das hier sehr sehr laut ist aufgrund der hohen Wellen und der Klippen.

    Luarca ( wanderfreier Tag )

    July 22, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Ein erneuter freier Tag zur Erholung der Füße, was echt mehr als notwendig ist. Sie haben echt schon einiges geleistet und das merkt man jetzt auch.
    Doch nach so vielen Tagen nicht zu laufen ist auch echt komisch. Wie soll das erst Zuhause werden😂
    Auto und Fahrrad brauche ich wohl nicht mehr.
    Doch an diesem Tag merke ich echt deutliche Veränderungen an und in mir. Was ist wirklich wichtig und was nicht. Ich werde definitiv ganz anders wieder heim kommen wie ich gegangen bin❤️

    Camino Del Norte - Day 19

    June 28, 2017 in Spain ⋅ 🌬 17 °C

    Camino Del Norte - Day 19

    Soto De Luna to Luarca
    Distance 35.5km (10 hours)
    Total ascent 370m

    Our little band of peregrinos set off from the Albergue at 6.30am. My international band consisted three Italians, one Northern Ireland , a German and me.
    The kind hospilardo gave us a complex briefing the night before on the confusing fechas (yellow arrows) and the best route to take. Unfortunately, some people didn't listen and then got angry because the hospilardo got peeved off repeating himself.
    We quickly set off up into the hills and onto the coastal route. Although, it has rained overnight and there were very dark clouds on the horizon, our first few hours were stunning on the Camino. We chatted away as we made our way up and down ancient sunken lanes, through eucalyptus forests and along lane ways. Locals greeted us with waves, beeping car horns and waving insanely at us.
    We stopped briefly for breakfast around 9.30am. We had already been walking for 3 hours. The weather took a turn. It was either absolutely glorious or lashing with rain.
    En route, we stopped near a cliff top view point called Novellana. It was stunning. Everyone's spirit just lifted. It was incredible. Here we were, a small group of peregrinos who threw themselves into this adventure and we sharing this wonderful experience. Little did we know that this was change......
    We eventually arrived in a town called Cadavedo around midday after walking 20km but descending/ascending into numerous stunning bays and back up to the minor roads. We practically raided a little grocery store for food and drink while we waited for Nicol (Generalismo) to arrive. Unfortunately, he developed a hip pain and could no longer carry on. Gerry from Northern Ireland also decided to call it a day. We said our farewells in the Albergue and carried on. Our little intrepid group now down to four.
    The weather took a real turn for the worse. It was now pocho time as rain storms rushed in from the Bay of Biscay. We had to shelter behind trees because of the driving rain.
    We eventually arrived in a small fishing town called Luarca. It is a stunning location. We were lucky enough to get the few remaining bed in the Albergue. Admin completed, we were out immediately for tea and cake (no medals) and to buy food for the trail tomorrow.

    I hope you enjoy today's pictures. It was probably my best day on the Camino in some many ways. I am only sorry to say goodbye to some great people.

    Evening in Luarca

    July 7, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    After walking back to my room to put on pants and a jacket as it was quite cool this evening with a breeze - I walked along harbor and the dozens of restaurants with signs that dinner is served at 8:30. So funny. In Folsom it is challenge to find food after Yoga at 8:45. Here it is a challenge to find food before 8:30. I headed to an outdoor cafe and had a cafe con leche and watched the world go by. I then ordered another. Then switched to Vino Tinto as I was pretty chill. Then another. Finally decided I should get some food around 10:45. I asked for my bill. $5 euros. I told him I think he forgot to charge me for something. He printed a tag. 2 wine 2 coffee - 5 euros. I was expecting at least a $20 tab. Walking back was too lazy to sit for dinner. Next to the hotel was a small hole in the wall to go shop. I got some pasta and a drink to take back to my room for $4 euro. He asked if I was a pilgrim and said he would give me extra for my important journey to make me strong.Read more
