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.

Santiago de Compostela 3 October

The weather forecast was 80% chance of rain today. Rain it did on the 19 km (12 mile) walk into Santiago, plus howling winds. It was the first time on this Camino that I have had to walk through so much rain, but it was doable. I rewarded myself with a stay in a pension (Hospadaje San Roque) instead of an albergue, so I will be able to enjoy some privacy for once. I also went to the noon pilgrim's mass, the highlights of which are the nun singling in her clear soprano and the swinging of the botafumeiro.

The plan for tomorrow is to take the bus to Ferrol, north of here, then to start Saturday on a different camino, the Camino Ingles, a five day walk back to Santiago.
