A lesson in the bus from Alvaro

A travel blog entry by dodder40

... he was from, because he was reading a book that I could not figure out the language. He leaned over to me and started talking in English and what turned into a short conversation turned into a 2 hour deep conversation about life.

We share some water with him which he is very grateful of and continue up the hill. There is now a ...

Running to Roncevalles

A travel blog entry by marymc21


... that we stay there instead of going to Roncevalles, but it was literally just one, single hostel in the fog. We got a coffee and practised our nicknames for the other pilgrims. There's Grace, the Italian lady we already met. There's Monica, a tall girl who looks like my friend Monica. There's Action Men, two Scandinavian guys who look ready for anything, and are probably camping outside and catching their own dinners. There's Skinny Jeans, a guy who is ...
