My Camino Route in 2016

My Camino Route in 2016
This year, I will be walking Camino Madrid from El Escorial through Segovia and Valladolid to Sahagun. I will have a few more days of walking and am currently thinking I might then walk from Astorga to Zamora on the portion of the Via de la Plata that I did not walk in 2014. In all it w=should be about 18 days and somewhere between 250 and 300 miles of walking.

Sobrado dos Monxes 1 October

I thought today's walk would be more difficult, but it really was not so bad because the elevation change was gradual. Today elevation change about 1200 feet and today's distance about 16 miles. I figure two more days to walk into Santiago. We have been unbelievably lucky with the rain. I has been raining late afternoons and evenings after we are in the albergue, with only some light drizzles during the day. Hope that holds out!

The albergue here is quite different as it is housed in a Cistercian monastery dating from the year 952.


A dead fox I saw on the road today. Also saw a dead badger.

My segundo plato of the afternoon menu del dia, raxos. It is a galician specialty, beef with garlic and ?

  1. Now that looks like a great meal! Steak with garlic and Spanish Fries--who could ask for more--except a glass of nice Spanish red wine.
