My oh my oh my... I arranged a last-minute week off for myself. For the first time since September 2019 I am able to leave the wonderful province of Asturias. Fully vaccinated. But now I can't decide:

- Five days of Spanish classes in Madrid
- Walking from Roncesvalles to Logroño (untrained)

I have always been bad at making decisions... Still a few days left to doubt...

A Pilgrimage is time I spend praying with my feet
Year of past OR future Camino
I would choose the Spanish classes in Madrid. It would be a wonderful opportunity to increase my ability to communicate, thus enhancing my future interactions with locals and merchants on Camino pilgrimages.

I would also use the time off from classes to enjoy Madrid and the surrounding area, taking in the museums and cultural/historical sites. And food. :)

Never losing my way: always standing on it

What about spending 5 days of learning/practicing Spanish talking to locals in bars and restaurants? Let’s say roughly between Roncesvalles and, for example, Logroño?
