Apr 18, 2018 - Bercianos del Real Camino to Mansilla de las Mulas

Day 17 - El Camino Maximum elevation = 880m, minimum elevation & finishing elevation = 797 m. 6 - 24 degrees. SUNNY!!. Another beautiful day. Quite warm by 10.30 - how unusual. The tree lined pathway that we followed yesterday afternoon continued all day today. A few undulations and overall downward trend but felt pretty flat. At 7.5km, we made the fateful decision to walk past the first bar in El Burgo Ranero. At the other end of the village, it was apparent it was the only bar. Walk back? Not likely!! The four of us shared my half...

Overview I was up at 6am and set off in the dark just after 6:30am. Walking out of town I could find the arrows from time to time but I was surprised there were no other pilgrims about.

Arrows were not easy to see / find away from the town lights but I seemed to...

May 22, 2007 - Day 12 - over half way!

Karen's Travels 2007

Oct 14, 2005 - Galacia

After driving from Bilbao along the coast to Santander, we headed inland through the ancient village of Santillana del Mer (as the guide book describes it "a proud little stone village with time-warp qualities...) and then through the dramatic peaks of the Picos de Europa (that reminded us, in parts, of the Grand Canyon). After the breathtaking scenery along the north coast and through the Picos, it was a bit of a let down to drive between Burgos and Leon where it is flat and very dry. By the time we got to Ponferrada, we realized the...
