Except the Francés
The caminopath Álvaro Lazaga is back on the camino, his 44th, filing daily reports on youtube. He left his (rainy) home town of Benidorm on Monday, heading northwards towards Valencia and Castellón, where he will join the Camino del Bajo Aragón towards Zaragoza. He is hoping it will be legal for him to cross into Teruel province and the region of Aragón on May 9th - "¿libertad?". If it isn't, he will return home.

Various ones.
I'm going to bump this, not sure about the new rules on the forum and bumping but Alvaro a couple of days ago reached Castellon and started a Camino proper from there, this route so far looks a stunner, and even some pilgrim accommodation, for anyone looking for a new, beautiful and challenging route this so far on the 1st two days has ticked a lot of boxes.

some and then more. see my signature.
Today Álvaro arrived in Escatrón, where I have been on the Ruta del Ebro. Looks like there is now a very nice albergue there. We had to stay down in a windowless cement block along the river.

Oh, the longing.....



From 2018, but I guess it will still be spotless. Not that many pilgrims passing by anyway.

Oh the longing indeed.

When I was in Escatrón (and now I remember getting a hug from a real camino enthusiast, who came out of the tourist office and might just have been the woman in Álvaro’s vlog), I heard there was a nice monastery up the river a way. I went into a bar to ask for directions, but started chatting with three very nice women who needed a fouth to play Parcheesi. So I spent the afternoon doing that instead.

I remember leaving Escatrón the next morning. First sight was a hydro-electric plant. Then across the river, I could see what very definitely looked like a monastery. Yes indeed it was the Monasterio de Rueda, Cistercian monastery now turned into a fancy hotel. The cloister looks just stunning. But I’ve seen many beautiful cloisters and only rarely get the chance to enjoy Parcheesi and learn all about the declining fortunes of Escatrón.
