Memories of my time on Camino.

Camino 29: End of Camino IV

"The Camino will provide." "For everything else there's Mastercard." "You really suck the romance out it with that follow up, you know."


I was carrying an additional 16 pounds on camino IV. All of it on my belly. Of course, the copious volume of wine consumed each night was having no negative impact on my energy levels. Pah! The very thought.

Camino 27. Las Herrerías

We stood in silence, taking in the views on every side. I was trying to imprint them on my mind. Beauty is contextual. At eight thirty in the morning, on the 12th of September, I stood, my best friend at my side, gulping down the perfection all around.

Camino 26. Cacabelos

We both were smiling ear to ear. There was not a cloud in the sky, and the sunlight was truly yellow, bathing everything in warmth. I felt it reviving me. We rejoined the road before Cacabelos, and the town kept moving away from us, or seemed to at least.

Camino 25 El Acebo

The path was sandy, we soon found ourselves walking through a sandstorm. I kid you not. I pulled my buff over my mouth and nose, and put my shades on. Stu hummed the theme to Lawrence of Arabia.

Camino 24. Santa Catalina de Somoza

"See them? They're the Montes de León." "But of course they are. What of them?" "They're in our way."

Camino 23 Hospital de Órbigo

"The thing is, there must have been a conversation where somebody said "we'll call it Babu Afrika - Colonial Tavern!" And then, somebody replied "what a great idea!""

Camino IV. (22)

"Ah you know, I'm waiting for you..." Stu greeted me with the customary comedy French accent and we hugged. Camino IV was on.
