Apr 16, 2019 - Hornillos del Camino

Hornillos del Camino - 471.7 kms from Santiago Today we entered the Meseta. Sort of the Spanish equivalent of walking across Saskatchewan. It's flat - huge sky - no trees. But quite lovely in it's own right. This may be the plains of Spain. But today it didn't rain. Instead it was full sun with no shade. New people to meet now. I took a rest day in Burgos yesterday (nothing much to add to the blog as I just rested!!) The pilgrims I walked with earlier have moved on. The Irish triplets have returned to Ireland. I met a retired Swedish...

Solo Camino 2019

Apr 13, 2018 - Villafria to Hornillos del Camino

Day 12 - El Camino Maximum elevation = 922 m, minimum elevation = 817m. Cold, under 10 degrees. Headed out 7.20 for the 8.5km walk to the city centre of Burgos.

Lunched at an amazing little...

Aug 29, 2016 - Day 1 Burgos to Hornillos del Camino

After leaving Burgos we joined up with a Belgian couple, Monique and Jean -Claude, who were also retired and doing the Camino in stages. They started in 2009 in Le Puy en Velay. One week each year! We walked with them on and off...

May 18, 2007 - Hornillos de Camino after 8 Days- 240km down, 460 to go

By day 8 I was feeling great and into a good rythmn. I was one third of the way, the weather had been good with about 10 deg overnight and up to about 28-30 as the high. I was getting through my list of people to carry stones for and enjoying the changing countryside. The route is mostly away from the roads which is good. we only come across traffic when in towns or cities but the Camino usually misses most of it. I walked through vineyards for many kms, then wheat and barley fields that were bordered by colourful wild flowers. Olive groves...
