Glad you liked it Paul. It was everything I had hoped for and much much more. I encourage you to give it serious consideration. Cheers!Thanks for this evocative description of your Camino de Madrid. I imagine that your experience walking to Sahagún might compare to the experience of those solitary pilgrims who walked the Frances many years ago. As a consequence I’m adding the Madrid to my thinking about the next time to Santiago.
All the best,
You are very welcome - I am so glad you enjoyed it! The hotel is a pretty fancy one, but through Booking.com I was able to secure an extremely reasonable rate for a lovely room and a big, included breakfast. Here is their website address. https://haciendalosrobles.com/web/ Enjoy your Camino!@Robert B. I have read the blog twice and enjoyed it a lot. Your stages was nearly the same as my planned stages for my camino next May. Hope to start the 8th. Do you remember the name of the hotel you stayed in in Navacerrada? Seems like a good choice if the mountain is not passable. Thanks for sharing the blog!
As a Canadian, I have felt embraced and warmly welcomed on my journeys around the world and feel blessed. I most certainly don't want to give the wrong impression about our American friends. It was not so much my feeling that US pilgrims are not welcome, but that there is a possibility that in certain situations they may be be regarded in a different light, particularly of late. Unfortunately, I did have a couple of unpleasant encounters and was deeply affected and saddened by them. But, as most people who have experienced the world, I have found that people are good everywhere and are often misunderstood due to circumstances far beyond their control. Enjoy your Camino in May!Thanks for your beautiful pictures. It's awesome and very inspiring . I will be at CM May 2020. You mentioned several times that US pilgrims are kinda not so welcomed, but Canadiens are. I am wondering if that is a new "thing" as I experienced that in Germany too. Sad.
