I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination. Jimmy Dean.
From Burgos, Spain we reached a high plateau area known as the Meseta. This area is known for being windy and it did not disappoint.
This area reminded us most of Iowa (God’s Country) with its flat croplands for miles. But for the wind, these were easy walking days without much up or down. Our first night after a brisk 20 mile walk was to Hontanas, a small village tucked away in the cleft of two hills.
We had an interesting group dinner with Pierre from Conques, France who had walked from his home to Santiago and was now walking back home. He spoke no English and we very little French but we had a good time trying…
From there we have travelled through Castrojeriz, Fromista, Carrion de Los Condes and passed the halfway point of the French Camino in Sahagun, Spain.
One day on our travels outside of Fromista, we were nearly accosted by a herd of sheep that had wandered away from their shepard and were making a break for it down the main highway….
All in all, a lot of walking and chatting with other pilgrims, but we are managing to have a great time and find interesting places and people along the way.
More to come on the road to Leon and beyond when the WIFI starts working and we download the pics.
Love to all,
