Camino Update -Bring on the good stuff.

Camino Day 5 & 6

It seems I get to do a Camino update every other day. I’m happy to report that today’s is a happier one. We have had two good days in the “Way”. The path has had fewer hills, for the most our bodies hurt a bit less although our feet are still a problem.

Over the last two days, we have decided to ditch sticking to the book and trying to stick to between 15 & 20 km a day. Still hard but not as punishing. We also decided to start in the town of Logrono (there should be a mark above then, but my keyboard is missing it) to say goodbye to one of our ladies from Italy who was going home for another year.

We got to town around noon and ate at a cafe for lunch, checked into our Hostel then went for a walk around the old part of the city. Breathtaking!  We went back, did some housekeeping and then went to eat again.  We ended up on a street where every place had a different Tapas menu before calling it a night.

This morning we started out at 6:30 and walked out of the city through a huge park. It took over an hour just to do that but it was very nice.

Camino Food

In the next town, we had lunch. I had my 3rd ham and cheese sandwich (which I ordered entirely in Spanish) and it’s the 3rd different style. I never know what kind of ham I’m going to get but they have all been great.  As we were leaving town we went to the town church. I’ve been to the big church in Montreal but it has nothing on all the gold behind this alter. WOW!

The trek to Ventosa was long and hot but fairly flat and smoothish. We checked in and met up with friends Tracy & Allen. We had a few drinks with them on a nice patio out back while the laundry washed then had a short sightseeing trip to the church. (Which was closed for Siesta). A quick nap the off for a very nice dinner with Allen and Tracy.

As I sit here writing, the social room is filled with people speaking in 5 or 6 different languages. A storm is rolling in which may put a damper on the next few days but hopefully, it won’t be too bad. So off to bed with high hopes, the weather stays good.
