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.

Calzadilla de Tera 30 September

Not much different to report today. I walked another 19 miles. Some of it was through the hilly scrubby oak forests and some was on beautifully irrigated farmland.

Our hospitelero last night really has an interest in the various pilgrimages to Santiago and even wrote several books, which he showed us. He also cooked a very good dinner of salad and a rice dish similar to paella with morcilla (blood sausage) in it. Plus he made breakfast for us in the morning. Such nice additions to the pilgrim experience are remembered. Tonight's albergue is a 6 bed one on the edge of town over the senior center. No kitchen, no hospitelero, but at least it has clean beds, showers, bathrooms, and a place to wash clothes.
