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 5 October

Yes, I am now a tourist. Even though I walk around some with my pack, mostly to and from the bus stations, the trekking poles are folded up and put away. I left the albergue in Zamora this morning and walked to the bus station, arriving an hour later in Salamanca, where I have stayed several times before. This time I found a pension just off the Plaza Mayor. Instead of seeing the inside of the cathedral again, I found an interesting Art Deco museum, just behind the cathedral. Greg Hodgkins, you would have loved it. The Lis family built this place as their personal home almost a hundred years ago and were avid collectors of Art Deco items from that period of the 20th century. I especially enjoyed the porcelain figurines and the brass sculptures. I could not take photos in the museum so it is hard to convey the beauty of this collection.
