What we do might seem nerdy, but befitting a medievalist: We follow a guiidebook from the late middle ages, Hermann Künig von Vach's book of St. James from 1495 AD, which leads from the benedictine abbey of Einsiedeln all the way to Santiago in spanish Galicia.

Many, various, and continuing.
I am sure he´ll avoid letting his horse drink from the river at Puente La Reina. And I wonder if he´ll see a pilgrim body being eaten by wolves out beyond Sahagun? And I am sure he´ll still run into at least as many rapacious innkeepers!

And he said....."It is a seven miles to Burgos....then you cross a fine bridge and soon reach Burgos where there are 32 hospitals".

Don't know about that, Rebekah, but he'll probably see a few bodies being eaten by bedbugs along the way! :roll: Oddly enough, when I passed that spot after I left you - the place of the historical wolf attack - I found it quite a chilling place. It was very early in the morning and I was alone on the Camino. I felt it was quite scary, even without the wolves...
