My Camino Route in 2017

My Camino Route in 2017
This year (2017), I will be walking most of the Camino Levante from Albacete to Zamora I've alloted three weeks in September and October, but may have time at the end for more walking.

Madrid Sept 24

After an uneventful ride to Madrid this morning, we arrived shortly after noon, took the Metro to the stop closest to the hostal for which we have reservations for tomorrow night. We were able to get a room a day early and tomorrow I can switch to a single room for the next two nights. After a short break for email ( the hostal has free wifi), we took off for the Thyssen museum. I had forgotten how large the collection is, it is huge. Unfortunately many of the Impressionist paintings, including all the Monet's seem to be on loan to other museums. Marge will catch an airport shuttle outside the hostal at 6:45 tomorrow morning, so she is busy packing. I think I will take the bus to Toledo tomorrow and do some sightseeing there. It is supposed to have the finest cathedral in Spain. Since I have seen many of Spain's cathedrals already, I will give my opinion tomorrow.

  2. I think a lot of the impressionist paintings are on a tour of the US. De Young in GG Park just finished an Impressionist show. Still, I'm sure that you saw more than most people see in a lifetime. Ahh, Madrid! I hope you also were able to go to the El Prado. Do they still make swords in Toledo?
