Camino June 20th (Chris)

Well, I had every intention of taking a bus about 60km down the road, as I mentioned in my prior posting, but as it ends up, I only went as far as Villafranca del Bierzo, a distance of about 23kms.

Camino June 19th (Chris)

Hi Folks!

Sorry for the silence, haven´t been in the frame of mind to put anything up!

When last I wrote, I was heading for Leon… the day was uneventful, however, it´s always hard walking into a big city… the pavement and sidewalks are brutal on the feet and legs!

Camino June 13-14th (Chris)

Villalcazar de Sirga was my final destination on the night of the 12th, I stayed at a nice little private albergue that had smaller dorm rooms, and an OK pilgrim menu… I was so tired from the day, that I was literally in bed by 8pm.

Camino June 12th (Chris)

Well, I´ve made it as far as Villalcazar de Sirga today, about 28km from where I stayed (with Christina) last night, a town called Itero de la Vega.

The road seemed REALLY long today, and my feet tired early, but I pressed on.

Camino June 9th (Chris)

Stayed the night yesterday in the village of Agés, a charming little place.  I had opted for their pilgrim menu AND buffet breakfast… both were somewhat of a disappointment… such is life on the Camino… you can´t win them all.

Camino June 8th (Chris)

Had a great meal last at my albergue (San Anton Abad), it’s attached to a hotel and restuarant… the bread was to die for, and the waitress even brought me butter, and then more bread for the road!

Camino – June 6th and 7th (Chris)

For some reason, I wake up full of ‘piss and vinegar’ as it were, and I’m raring to go.

I walk alone from Navarrete for a few kilometres, and then am approached on the trail by Alex, a local who asks if he can walk with me to the next town (Ventosa), in order to practice his English.

Camino Day7 – Chris

Hi folks… losing track of the days here… it´s Monday, so that would make it day 7?  Yes… day seven.

Stayed at a nice little Austrian hostel two nights ago… think the town was called El Corton?

Camino Day5 – Chris

Well, as Christina will atest, I can be my own worst enemy.

Despite thinking last night that I´d take a day to rest my weary feet, I arose this morning feeling rested, with feet that didn´t actually hurt too bad… and so… I soldiered on towards Estella, about 24kms down the road.

Camino Day4 – Chris

Well, despite what I thought I might do today, I pressed on to Puente La Reina, about 24km from Pamplona.

Upon waking up, my feet felt better than when I went to bed, and I thought I´d be good to go.
