Ready or not this journey is about to begin.
Freaking Spain and their changing rules.
Final day of Prep
These are a few of my favorite things.
There is a lot of things you could do for 35 days. Why this?
Arrival in Pamplona
After years of prep and anticipation, it starts.
Day One Done
We had enough juice to make it 15.4 miles today.
Slap yo mama, these are good!
The old man from the Netherlands
Finally someone that speaks English besides my kids.
I know why everyone is thin here…
Spaniards. No eating. Only drinking.
Pray for the dead
Just don’t do it in the 2nd row, unless it is for a family member.
Kindness of the Camino
An unexpected find.
The Rhythm sets in
The long haul begins.
Bullfighting, baby lamb, and some over exposed Spaniards.
A festival for Our Lady
Why a fat couple of mascots had to dance for this event, I might never know.
Someone is ringing the hell out of the bells…
I guess we are going to Mass tonight.
The first part of the Camino is for you body…
… the second for your mind, the third for your soul.
Spanish work to live…
While the rest of the world lives to work.
Where do you stay?
Today was the ancient convent of Santa Clara in Carrion de los Condes
The Spain Connection
We have reached the halfway point of the Camino!
Tapas, Tapas, Tapas
Blaise has kicked it into high gear.
50K in a Day
It is finished. And so is papa.
Meal of the 10 meats
Ever had horse meat?
Is everyone getting pretty smelly?
Gus’s feet have seen better days.
Time to do some hating. If you like to bike, you might want to skip this blog entry.
Headed back to St. Jean, France
Shhhhh….. not even my wife knows yet.
Good bye toilet paper
Letting go has never been so easy to do
English, Do You Speak it!
Getting a real education
What did you eat for breakfast?
I bet it wasn’t this.
How do you know where to go?
It’s pretty obvious.
Joy of the Journey
Today Santiago de Compostela
Sadness of the Destination
It hit hard
To Our Camino Friends…
Over 500 miles you make a lot of friends.
