Start by doing what is necessary; then do what is possible; then suddenly you are doing the impossible. Saint Francis of Assisi
We have had a great week of walking and touring. A little less rain and many interesting places to visit, most notably in Astorga and Panferrada. Astorga was a great stop for us as we were again surrounded by great architecture including the Bishop’s Palace designed by the famous Spanish Architect Antonini Gaudi.
We stayed the night at the Astur Plaza Hotel on Plaza Mayor.
We spent a little time exploring after our arrival and visited the cathedral ……
And then we spent some time in the Bishop’s Palace.
All Men Die, Not All Men Truly Live. William Wallace, Braveheart.
This quote reminded us of Ponferrada, Spain which was home to the Knights Templar Castle.
And then we were off early morning with headlights on for the long road to Sarria and the final week!
I would rather walk with a friend in the dark, than alone in the light. – Helen Keller
