Saturday, 16 Jun 2018 | Views [26]

Leaving the huge monastery converted into Hotel Real Monasterio del Zoilo in Carrion de Los Condes. Not a seamless transition from monastery to hotel, but really interesting, nonetheless. Construction on the monastery began in 1047.  These ... Read more >

Day 12 Atapuerca to Burgos

Friday, 8 Jun 2018 | Views [55]

Our hotel from Atapuerca was several miles out of town and required a taxi ride. ...Have you heard the one about the two pilgrims who went into a bar? One pilgrim attempted to phone a taxi and got a recording, in Spanish, of course. After trying the ... Read more >

Days 10 and 11 Santo Domingo to Belorado and Belorado to Atapuerca

Thursday, 7 Jun 2018 | Views [47]

We left the beautiful Parador Hotel in Santo Domingo as we headed for Belorado today. Lots of small towns and wheat fields today.  Saw the funniest sign, but didn’t take a pic as it was covered with graffiti. It said: Yay God, Boo Devil. Made ... Read more >

Day 9 Najera to Santo Domingo de la Calzada

Tuesday, 5 Jun 2018 | Views [56]

Brisk when we started this morning, but we warmed up after the first hill! We are walking through lots of vineyards again today as we start out. Some workers below are out trimming the grapes. They’re not using any tools, just breaking of the part ... Read more >

Day 8 Logrono to Najera

Monday, 4 Jun 2018 | Views [57] | Comments [1]

We left Logrono early as we have around 18 miles to go today and of course most of it is uphill! How does that work...seems like the days are mostly uphill. At some point we surely will start down. Seriously, every day is up and down hills--as you would ... Read more >

Days 6 and 7: Estella to Los Arcos and Los Arcos to Logrono

Saturday, 2 Jun 2018 | Views [55] | Comments [1]

No Internet Thursday night in Los Arcos. EEKS! Perhaps a blessing in disguise? Visited this cathedral in Los Arcos. We'd been told it looks like Vatican City. Very ornate.   Another iconic experience on the Camino de Santiago is the ... Read more >

Thursday, 31 May 2018 | Views [64] | Comments [1]

After a great breakfast at the hotel, we put on our final layers (1 for Jeff, 4 for Donna), secure our packs in their rain covers and head out for Estella. It’s about 60 degrees and raining for the first four hours. Since we couldn’t take ... Read more >

Day 4 We hiked from Pamplona to Puente de la reina

Wednesday, 30 May 2018 | Views [66] | Comments [3]

The skies are dark again as we leave Pamplona--but it's in the 50s and that's warm enough when we're hiking uphill...only the first 9 miles are uphill today! You can see that we are walking through the clouds again today. This is a typical Camino marker.... Read more >

Zubiri to Pamplona

Tuesday, 29 May 2018 | Views [53]

Another spectacular day on the Camino. The terrain was easier today, less mountainous. I didn’t say no hills and valleys, just fewer! We walked through acres and acres of wheat fields. We now know where they get the flour for all this great bread ... Read more >

Roncevelles to Zubiri

Monday, 28 May 2018 | Views [57]

Dry clothes and sunny skies all day today from Roncevelles to Zubiri. Only 790 Km to go! Met Korine from the Netherlands at breakfast. She tells me that her tour group is crossing the Pyrenees today…from Roncevelles to St. Jean--1 mile uphill, ... Read more >

Torrential Rain, Hail, Lightening, Thunderstorms and Fog – The Pilgrims Cross the Pyrenees

Sunday, 27 May 2018 | Views [66]

Still wringing the rain out of my laptop as I write tonight. What a crazy, fun day. The trail over the Pyrenees is 15.5 miles—14 of those uphill! It’s harder than climbing out of the Grand Canyon. Whew. Much greener though. We laughed, ... Read more >
