  • Day31

    Day 31a. Villalcázar, Camino.

    September 4 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    We walked to the village of Villovieco. It passes through the villages of Villarmentero de Campos and Revenga de Campos and skirts Villalcázar de Sirga. We then walked down to join the old path along the river. It is a rougher track but shaded by trees.
    The main monument in Villalcazár de Sirga is la Iglesia de la Virgen Blanca, a large church build between the 12th and 13th centuries by the Knights Templar. This already huge church is what remains of a much larger building which was damaged in 1755 by an earthquake and Napoleon's troops during the Napoleonic wars. They had left by the time we arrived. We stopped here and ate our bakery food.
    From Villalcázar de Sirga we again followed the purpose made gravel track that runs parallel to the road for 5 kilometres until we reached Carrión de los Condes.

    Boadilla to Villacazar de Sirga

    September 22, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 70 °F

    As I write this I am at a cafe/bar in Villacazar. I checked into an albergue that runs on donations. It is a decent place run by a religious order but they have no WiFi. I had a group meal tonight with everyone who was staying there...pasta, salad and wine. A great time with people from France, Germany, Switzerland, Poland and Guadalupe. I met a guy today that has lived on the Camino for 11 years....he, survives by working in albergues. He loves it. Tomorrow, I forge ahead, not sure of my next town. I have done the math and only have to walk 9.84 miles per day to finish in Ponferrada and have enough time to get back to Madrid to catch my plane home....very easy. I have met a guy from Bar Harbor and a couple from Litchfield thus far. It is still very hot out here on the meseta...around 90 degrees at midday but again, not really an issue except for a shower is an absolute must when you arrive at your destination. I am working on some videos....hopefully by tomorrow afternoon. Take care and as always...thank you for checking in!Read more

    May 27 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 57 °F

    I met this couple this morning. He is traveling along the Camino under his own power in his wheelchair. They have chosen parts of the Camino that are smoother and flatter, but I was still amazed at him. He is using a standard wheelchair with a detachable large front wheel that helps him navigate the terrain.Read more

    Back in touch

    May 14, 2018 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 59 °F

    Since leaving Burgos, we’ve climbed the Meseta, the high plain that stretches from Burgos to Leon. Wide open spaces, remote old Camino towns, and very little communication available. The Meseta was the breadbasket of the Roman Empire, and we’ve passed miles of wheat and barley fields under a big blue sky.

    We met our first Spanish cowboy and spent a night in the romantic town of Castrojeriz. The wind beat us up for several days, and the temp was 32 degrees when we left Castrojeriz Sunday morning.

    We spent Sunday night in Laurie’s favorite albergue in Boadilla de Camino, sleeping up in the old barn loft!

    Looks like warmer weather coming, and still we’ve dodged the rain. On Wednesday we’ll pass the halfway point of the Camino from St. Jean to Santiago.

    A belated Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms!

    Etappe 16 von Boadilla nach Villalcázar

    April 20, 2017 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 32 °C

    Nachdem ich die personifizierte Dreifaltigkeit hinter mir gelassen hatte, begann der Tag wieder gut zu werden. Ich traf auf einen Engländer, dessen Namen ich mir irgendwie nicht merken konnte, was gleich an der Bar sicher noch witzig werden wird und später auf Maria aus Südafrika, die heute auch in der selben Herberge schläft. Ansonsten war der Weg ziemlich öde... Immer geradeaus, Sonne pur und zu flach für meinen Geschmack. Aber es war schön, denn ich hatte ja Gesellschaft.
