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.

Salamanca 25 September

Today is kind of a rest day with an easy 12 mile walk into Salamanca. This city is a place of good memories as Kathy and I spent almost a week here in 2005. Then I was here for two days again in 2010. I arrived at the albergue around noon, but they do not open until 4, so I left my pack there and am reacquainting myself with the city this afternoon. 

Starting to get out of the hilly grazing country into flatter, cultivated land just before Salamanca

The sunflowers around here are pretty spindly and small compared to the ones at home

Walking across the river on the Puente Romana, the cathedral is in view in the background
Brass plates set into the pavement to show the way. I saw this one in 2010, today it helped me to find the way.

Don Quixote, where Kathy and I studied Spanish in 2005
