Damn it whole blogs are disappearing with bad wifi. None the less thank you all for reading and staying in touch – all likes and comments on WordPress are greatly appreciated and keep me motivated to keep writing and sharing a few photos. Frankly it keeps us both motivated to keep walking. Please excuse me if this one is now a bit short as I am a few days behind in blogging and the entire post disappeared!
The last week or so has also brought some sad news from home which makes us ponder things as we walk. Firstly a family member has been dealt with some life changing medical news, a young friend of our sons was killed in a car accident only months after finishing school, and we have only just heard that friends have been in Bali to bring home their loved one who died in a snorkelling accident. Sadly these events fill us with sadness for those affected and remind us of how fragile life is. At the same time we walk with a greater sense of awareness of how beautiful the little things in life can be.
We left Burgos a little late as usual which allowed us to walk through a festival on the way out of town. Here I had to try out a space aged toilet which I almost got trapped in when I posed for a picture and didnt get out of the automatic door in time! Amazing this high technology when I cant even get internet!
One of the many arrows telling us the way
This time we contacted a casa rural called El Molino. Its a little off track so they came and picked us up and dropped us back the next morning to where they picked us up from. It was a beautiful old flour mill converted to a house like a b & b. Apparently the crew from the movie “the Way” stayed there when making the film and prior to that Martin Sheen had stayed there with his grandson (Emilio’s son I think) and the grandson ended up marrying the beautiful spanish girl he met there. Sounds romantic doesnt it? If you havent seen the movie “The Way” get ahold of it as it is great story about the Camino (and life) although for some reason I don’t recall any of them having sore feet!
