Some Touring in Leon, Spain.

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.

Wet but we made it!

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.

The Town Hall and Casa Botines.

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

Love to all!

  8. I’m curious how creative writing instructors at colleges and universities deal with students who also write about really disturbing issues and who seem potentially dangerous to themselves and more? Are teachers privy to students’ mental wellness records? Perform they let such learners get away with violent or disturbing writing in an work NOT to mix too much problems? Do you feel proactive in trying to help these students? Do you undergo schooling to deal with problem students? As being a creative composing student in a college or university, I frequently see disturbing stuff brought into workshops. I’m questioning what the profs think of all this. Thanks to any kind of answers!.

  14. Nunca olvidaré cuando me monté en el helicóptero y, valle abajo, dejé de ver la vertiente sur del Gasherbrum 1. El sentimiento es de dolor, de que ya se acaba, se acaba de verdad, vuelves de alguna manera a la civilización dejando mucho, dejando mucho en el campo base, en la montaña. Pasé un día en Islamabad, cogí un vuelo hasta Qatar y de allí ya a Madrid donde estaban esperando Leire Giarte, Sebastián Álvaro, Mariano Izquierdo, y Hanif, que vinieron a recibirme. Han construido una bota menos técnica de lo que puede ser una Sportiva, una Scarpa pero sin lugar a dudas es una bota caliente.

    Cheers

  24. One thing I’d prefer to say is always that car insurance cancelling is a horrible experience and if you’re doing the best things as a driver you’ll not get one. Some individuals do obtain notice that they are officially dropped by their insurance company and several have to struggle to get more insurance after the cancellation. Low-cost auto insurance rates are frequently hard to get following a cancellation. Understanding the main reasons for auto insurance cancellations can help people prevent completely losing in one of the most vital privileges obtainable. Thanks for the strategies shared by your blog.
