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.

Zamora 27 September

Today's 20 mile walk was at least off the highway and completely on lightly travelled farm tracks. They were harvesting sunflowers and grapes along the way as well as working the wheat and sunflower stubble and fertilizing for next year.

Arrived in Zamora just before the 2 pm opening of the albergue. It is donativo, but very well equipped, even with wifi and a clothes spinner. Two very friendly Italian hospiteleras. A donativo meal tonight and breakfast tomorrow. Who could ask for more. I will report later on the meals.

Those of you who are familiar with the small town of Zamora north of Woodland may wonder how it was named. Originally called Black's Station, it was soon renamed by Spanish immigrants to California to maintain a connection to their homeland.
