Twenty years from now, you will be most disappointed by the things you did not do, then by the things you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. -Mark Twain
After a few wet and windy days of travelling the flat fields of the Meseta, we finally reached Leon, Spain (population 130,000) and one of the last large cities on the Camino.
We reserved a great hotel on the Plaza San Gaudi Domingo and started exploring.
This was a great stop and we took the time to explore a bit which paid off greatly.
Especially the Gothic Cathedral built in the 1400s when Leon only had a population of 5,000. Definitely an “If we build it they will come!” moment. This place was ultra cool and had to be an unbelievable achievement for its day without all the technology and building materials we have today.
The best or most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart. Helen Keller
All in all a great stop in Leon and we are on to Astorga.
Love to all!
