Camino Odds n’ Ends

Not many folks walk the Camino de Santiago.  Conversations with those on “The Way” come from the entire planet.  Each has a unique story to tell.

The more interesting aspects of this walk are cultural differences with Spain in general:

Don’t see vending machines in the middle of nowhere in America:


Do you think a commissar would appreciate the humor in this name:


The open road takes on a whole new meaning:




Don’t see shepherds in my neck of the woods: 


I promise no more sunrise photos–no really–but aren’t these nice:


After a long rocky climb I can only liken to Gogotha:


Clean water (aqua) available in these fountains in many villages and  towns:


Funny to find this bar in a village in Spain–must be fans:

A free museum created out of a ruin in Burgos:


Caves randomly cut into rock:

A foggy morning:


Street sculpture–so humanizing in Burgos:

Gotta love the Mary Poppins motif:


And don’t forget a big favorite for smiting the moors–El CID: 


Can’t resist the large-scale fountains–wish we had more:


And these trees are everywhere–love them in the city plazas:

This was by a roadside perhaps a Spanish cattail:


After the past few days of walking I know how this feels:


Buen Camino
