2 Days Worth here – Well – it’s been a day – watched the match in a bar of localness! I asked if I could cheer without offending anyone 🤣 . Sat with 2 Belgians who are as happy as I am . We may meet them soon ⚽️
Cruz de Ferro – a simple high point and most important along with Santiago- this is where you leave a stone with your troubles written you wish to leave there –
Thanks to the Hobart – Tasmanian girls for this pic – nice
From there to Manjarin – an odd permanent shrine to the knights of St John – shades of Davinci Code .
Into Alpine like villages – El Acebo and Molinaseca
Where “Taz ” from Hobart , Tas meets up in a super riverside bar .
I diverted from plan due to my feet – Famous in my group by now – as Dos Diablos 🤣 …messy
– and in such a Camino Way had a top evening in the Alberque.
– Masa from Tokyo
And Mowoko – where we talked about a Camino in Japan that my sister and I want to do …… suddenly this lot comes out – but not from the Japanese couple
…….. Each page below are one per temple – a stamp and calligraphy over 88 nights and 1200 k in Japan – wow 😮
……… but from this random Spanish man Alfredo – who overhears our conversation .
……. And remembering this is a smallish Spanish village – guess who he turns out to be?
Knights Templar theme continues over early morning coffee .
Including this bloody marvellous Templar castle in Ponferrada
Good Bars too by the look of things – but no time to stop today…
As we enter the Bierzo Wine region with the early grapes just showing .
– and amazing winery murals
But the early morning is just glittering ……
Each step a test ….. but rewarding xxx.
