On pilgrimage, when injury happens, a special treat with rest and ambiance helps the healing. This is an exceptionally beautiful and tasteful hotel that embellishes the culture and history of the region. We are so pleased with both the accommodations and the staff. Highly recommended.

Miles today: 20 total miles Today we had to make up for the previous day's walking deficit, so we had the most km so far. It was a long day. For the first 13 km we took no breaks. My body is getting used to the idea of walking that I can put one foot in front of the next for a full three hours without stopping for even one moment. The first break we took was in Najera, the place we were supposed to reach the previous day. The city was a ...
... mostly 3 stories, stand side by side always touching the one next to it. The homes are so colorful with butterscotch yellows, terra cotta, muted corals and mint greens.

He wrapped duct tape around his Birkenstocks for some extra support. We saw Susannah again at our early morning cafe con leche stop. She's the one from Puenta la Reina who believes she's been reincarnated and was once a blind beggar at the Cathedral in Leon. We've been asking about Mass in every ...
... off the road again and on to tracks, through farmland, over another ridge - with views to Burgos, and down into Cardenuela Riopico to a new Albergue called Santa Fe. We got a private room with our own bathroom and immediately fell asleep. Woke, showered and headed down stairs for a beer / wine. Met a mad Italian ( who left to go and watch the soccer final ) while we chatted with 2 American guys. Pilgrim dinner, watched a little soccer and headed to our very own ...
... over regulation here. Love it! Just get responsible and use common sense people! When can we have that.
Writing my my blog tonight with my sleeping bag liner around me. It's freaking freezing and maybe Hedley's snow prayer may happen. Waiting for dinner at the Albergue. The hosts are really really funny and it looks for an interesting night! Tomorrow onto Burgos - depending on maps somewhere between 22 -24 kms. Easy day. Looking for a vanity stop.
