Memories of my time on Camino.

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.

Camino 20. León

There is the possibility to avoid the busy (and dangerous) main road into (and out of) León by taking the bus from Mansilla direct to the city centre (€1.65)...Tempted?

Camino 19. Finding Religion

The light was truly golden, there were no other pilgrims about and we had the Way to ourselves. Inescapable though, was that Stu was hobbling. "Sore?" "No. I'm just practicing my limp." I suppose it was a stupid question.

18. The Long March to Sahagún

We walked a little with a young German guy. He was on a strict timetable. Planning to finish the Camino Francés in three weeks, we was averaging 40km + a day. “I’ll bet he’s crap at drinking Rioja” I said, as disappeared into the haze on the horizon.
