    Camino Del Norte - Day 26

    July 5, 2017 in Spain

    Camino Del Norte - Day 26
    Distance 25km (6.5 hours)
    Ascent 250m

    Last night, I stayed in Albergue Casa Roxica. It was a tiny Albergue was on a small farm. There were just 11 peregrinos. We had a three course communal dinner with wine for 8 euros. It was a lovely evening. Everyone was relaxed. The temperature got up to 38C so we either slept or chatted in the shade.
    I set out at 5.45am this morning with Claudia and a Russian girl who tagged onto us. She didn't have a torch and relied on us to lead the way. At one stage, we came across 10 dogs across our path. The usual barking went off. Our Russian friend was terrified. She clung onto Claudia as we made our way past the. This happened Gain a few hour later when we came across more dogs.
    As we approached the town of Sobrado, we were joined by two French ladies I have walked with for several days. We walked into the town together and visited the fantastic Monasterio de Santa Marin de Sobrado. It was founded in 952. The monastery features an impressive Baroque facade, built in the 17th century. It is also an Albergue. All the peregrinos had already left. We wandered around the monastery and cloisters. It was wonderful. Photos attached.
    We stopped for breakfast before starting our last 10 kilometers to Biomorto where I am this evening. En route, we saw a huge school party ahead and were afraid that they were heading the same way. We ended up racing past them to the Albergue but they simply passed by.
    The Albergue is wonderful. It is ultra modern, sleeps 34 with every facility. All for 6 euros. It is easily the best one I have stayed in. So far there are only 8 of us here.

    Tomorrow is our last day on the Camino Del Norte as we will join the Camino Frances on our way to Santiago. We have only 50kms to go.

    A night in an ancient monastery

    June 27, 2017 in Spain

    So today I am not feeling frightened or nervous, just kind of flat. Five us walked together (4 single women and one guy) into Sobrado dos Monxes, a town with a Cistercian monastery with 13th century origins. What's now standing is mostly from the 16th century onwards, and there is a much improved albergue. When Dana and I slept here 10 years ago, it was a hygienic disaster. Now there are decent and clean beds, clean hot showers, but tons more people than when we were here. This is good preparation for what we will find tomorrow when we get to Arzua and the Camino Frances.

    After a very nice lunch with ten other amigos, the topic turned to tomorrow's lodging. Turns out three of them had had a hard time finding a place, and the rest of us hadn't even started looking. Half an hour and many phone calls later, the rest of us finally found something. Same thing for the next day. I did have a reservation in Santiago but I had to cancel because I am a day behind. So things are unclear but I do have a bed for the next two nights!

    Sobrado dos Monxes

    October 9, 2016 in Spain

    Nice 24km walk today, mostly off road. Perfect weather again.

    Strecke: 32km; HM: 750m; von Santa Leocadia nach Sobrado dos Monxes

    Füße lassen nach, aber es geht uns soweit gut. Laufen einfach langsamer und genießen das Wetter. Weil es heute schon so spät ist, schreibe ich auch nicht mehr viel. Wollen die Füße hochlegen. Morgen kommen wir dann auf den Hautpweg. Mal sehen was uns da so erwartet. Ein Belgier hat gemeint, da sieht man auch mal Leute in High Heels auf den letzten Kilometern und ein anderer Deutscher der gerade noch mit dem Fahrrad aus Santiago kam, meinte da ist schon massig was los. Wir werden sehen.Read more

    Tag 35: Baamonde - Sobrado 35km

    August 20, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Um einen Tag einzusparen, für Porto, bin ich die 35km nach Sobrado nicht gelaufen. Bin mit dem Zug nach Teixiero gefahren und von dort 15km nach Sobrado gelaufen.
    Das Kloster, mit Kirche, in Sobrado ist wirklich sehenswert. Alt, teilweise überwuchert sieht es an manchen Stellen aus wie Ruinen in Tomb Raider.
    In der Kirche traf ich Diana aus Münster.
    In Sobrado traf ich auch Sandra, die Schweitzerin und Corinna aus Hessen wieder. Zusammen mit Anthony aus London und Jörg aus dem Rheinland saßen wir bis Mitternacht in der Taverne bei Vino Tinto.

    D-26. Friol - Sobrado

    October 22, 2016 in Spain

    Distance 25.3 km (634.6)
    Steps 33200 (1 045 085)
    Ascent/Descent 472/430

    Net lyjant lietui toliau mėgaujuos keliu. Iki kol popiet pasiekiau Šiaurinį kelią, ėjau visiškai vienas, nesutikdamas jokių žmonių. Užtat kiekvienam kaime bent po 5 palaidus šunis, kurie būtinai turi aploti kiekvieną praeinantį pakeleivį. Na bet panašu kad nebeturiu baimės palaidiems šunims.
    Nakvynė Sobrado vienuolyne. Tokia ramybės ir harmonijos oazė, kur storos akmenų sienos skaičiuoja jau daug šimtmečių, o vienuoliai rūpinasi kad ir toliau juos skaičiuotų.
    Kaip ir kasdien, suradus nakvynės vietą, nuėjau į dušą, o po to jau automatiškai išsiskalbiau rūbus. Ir tik bedžiaudamas juos supratau, kad džiaunu dar nenešiotas kojines, o tos su aromatu sau pakampėj slepiasi :) būna, automatika paveda!


    Even the rain can't take away my joy of Camino. Until afternoon I met nobody until track reached Camino del Norte. Except the dogs. They been everywhere and in every village at least few loose dogs with a must-to-bark attitude. On the bright side - I lost my fear of loose dogs.
    Tonight I'm staying at Sobrado monastery. The island of peace and harmony where thick walls made of stone counts centuries. And monks are taking good care of it.
    And today I washed clean socks while dirty ones were hiding in a corner.. Probably I need a day off.

    07.10.2017 - Sobrado dos Monxes

    October 7, 2017 in Spain

    Nach leckerem Frühstück mach ich mich auf die Socken. "Und dann geh ich diese Straße lang" bekommt da nochmal eine ganz andere Bedeutung. 2/3 des Weges führen auf bzw. an der Straße entlang. Die etwas unschönere Tour endet dann in Sobrado. Das Highlight des Tages ist wohl doch der Blick auf einen kleinen See und die saubere Unterkunft. Im dem relativ kleinen Ort befindet sich eine beeindruckende Klosteranlage, in der auch eine große Albergue integriert ist.Read more
