Today was a pretty easy day. I was hoping to get into the hostel early and catch-up on my blogs. I did get in early, but the WiFi was completely worthless. I spent 4 hours and only got 7 photos (out of 40) uploaded 😦

Once again, the morning started out overcast… This is getting ridiculous!

But shortly the skies got very dramatic! YEAH!!!!

SandwichCam Returns 🙂

I decided to take an early lunch in this very nice little hamlet.

Here is the inside of the church (behind the SandwichCam) It was very surprising to walk into a very bright church. Most of them are quite dark.

After a nice lunch it was back to hiking. I got a little sun along the way, but the skies remained very interesting.

A little further down the road was this huge church in ruins.

There is a small hostel (on the right side) built into the ruins. It is run by a couple from El Paso, TX.

The skies started to look very threatening. Luckily I was very close to my stop for the day.

I made it to my hostel and about 30 minutes later the rain came.

Today’s Thoughts

  • Today I walked with Agnes (see yesterday’s post) who is a retired nurse from Belgium but now lives in France. I really enjoyed her company on today’s walk.
  • We (Agnes & I) had a great dinner next to the hostel. The best so far and it was the cheapest at 9.9 euros.
  • My body is finally back to the routine after the rest day in Burgos.

 

Cheers,

-jj
