Hello- I am currently in Burgos and my first day on the path is tomorrow. My flights went smoothly; no delays, no request to see my health form in Amsterdam. I did have to show my QR code at Madrid airport. Considering everything, lines at airports moved quickly.
Burgos is beautiful. About half the people walk around with a mask. Other than that, it’s a gorgeous scene and it feels like a dream that I’m here!

I don’t know what it is, but it feels to me that this year we have a lot more live threads going on than usual, even for a normally busy camino season.

I wonder if it’s because all our communal pre-camino apprehension, questions, covid uncertainties, etc. made us feel even more connected to this great community and thankful for all the help others were so quick to give.

Other than that, it’s a gorgeous scene and it feels like a dream that I’m here!

Anyway…. to you @LynneR, I wish you a very wonderful camino from Burgos. I am glad your flights went smoothly.

And if by chance you happen to be from the US, telling us that the connection in Amsterday went smoothly and with no covid-hiccups is in itself very helpful information. I know I (an others) have been worried about making connections in other countries on my way to Spain, so this is good to know and reassuring!

Hello from Hornillos. All is excellent. Looks like a few albergues are open in Hornillos. Several pilgrims. I’m at Meeting Point. They had a communal dinner and I’m in a room where 8 of the 10 beds are filled. Some masks here but it’s rather relaxed, even at the bar where I went for an Estrella Galicia : ) Maybe smaller towns are like that? Too soon to tell.
I was worried that it would feel different…it doesn’t. It’s the same; pilgrim’s are happy and friendly. The spirit is alive.
Poor wifi from my room so I’ll add pics later. Bye for now.

Good to hear from you, I loved Burgos. You go into the Meseta soon, it is a tough stage, especially in the present heat. It is a tough stage but I met fantastic people on this part. Leave early in the mornings with the heat, Buen Camino
The water fountain operates from a foot pedal. Guess who couldn't figure that out first thing in the morning and proceeded without full bottles of water during a heat wave.

Hola and Buen Camino, Lynn! I too plan to start my next Camino (my 6th) from Burgos in mid-September. Enjoy! There is a gem around every corner.

Hello again. I am in Sahagún today. I’ve seen more pilgrims on the path, but the numbers are
lower than I’ve experienced in past years.
The general spirit is the same.
Not many people talk about the pandemic, so it is nice to have that escape. Albergues have not been full…No problem getting a place. I’ve been booking a day ahead, but so far I would not have needed to do that.
Some people mask outside; some do not.
I am at the Albergue de Santa Cruz (monastery). They will not do a communal dinner. But they are so kind and hospitable. I recommend them, regardless of your religious background. They are simply kind people offering comfort to pilgrims. All is well on the Camino.
