Hello!

It is 3am and I’m in Alicante. I should be sleeping... but I have major jet lag issues. It is going to be a rough walk to Novelda tomorrow! 🤣

Anyhow, I will be video blogging and posting a short daily video of the walk to my YouTube channel. I have today’s video posted!

Here is the link to the ‘Ruta de la Lana Camino’ playlist:

Love it! Buen camino to you Sara, looking forward to following along. It is so helpful to have up to date info on stages and accommodations on these untraveled caminos. I hope to make it to the Lana in 2020. Hope the weather cooperates.

Buen camino, Laurie

If you enjoy the Lana half as much as I did earlier this year, you're in for a very happy few weeks.

Nice nice nice I will follow you! This is my favorite Camino!! I love the part Alicante - Caudete! I will be your most devout follower :OD

Yessss I watched your first video. Leaving Alicante is tricky: I lost a lot of time on my first start! It's a fairly straight line from the center to the Cemetery, but of course you have to end up on the right street to get there. I am waiting for your next video! I never walked in November so I want to see what it looks like!

Thanks!

Uhm, if your jetlag still causes problems you can always stay in Orito, 8 kms before Novelda. It's a nice and quiet place, at least in summer. Let us know!

Well done Sara. Went from Alicante to Cuenca myself mid September last and loved it, so following your blog on YouTube will be really interesting. Take care and Buen Camino!

Hi,

Just watched your second video. I ca'nt believe how windy it is! Nice to se the interior of the albergue in Novelda as I have never stayed there. 32 kms on the first stage is too much for me...!

You met 2 other pilgrims the first day?? I wonder if there is a surge in pilgrims on this Camino, or if it is the season.

Waiting for the next chapter!

Well there is going to be a delay for the next videos as I am locked out of the iCloud on my iPhone. :(

Really annoying! Spanish Apple support will hopefully be calling me today to get it fixed.

Otherwise, I’m having fun!!!! 😁

Some but not all, and other routes too.
Waka,

Have you already walked the Lana? :Oo It is fantastic, right! :OD

/BP
No I haven't and I'm not sure it's on my list yet, I just like to read and watch all things camino ( I've either too much time on my hands or I'm a very sad person) especially Sara' posts.

Just an update that I’m on an Apple security lock for another two days. That means I still can’t access my YouTube account. 😭

Currently tucked into bed in Caudete.

These beautiful young ladies were doing a photo shoot to promote an upcoming festival in Villena.08A5A37C-C24B-4EBF-BD0C-98C58F1EC9A2.jpeg

Look on the brightside Sara - at least you are not walking through NOR-CAL at the moment!
Davie
That's true. I drove on Thursday on I-5 just about 50km to the west from Paradise. Strong wind and smell of the smoke. Even in Oakland (airport) I felt it in the air. Only when I returned back to Europe I realized what happened there.

But just to add. Sara walked through NOR-CAL this year on PCT and also did vlog about that. I think she finished it a month or two ago.

Really enjoying these videos,Sara. I also visited those prehistoric paintings outside of Alpera. One of the things the guide told us was that they had survived thousands of years uncovered and exposed to the elements, but it was when the villagers found them and started touching them that they faded out so completely.

Thanks for bringing back these memories — my little band of three were the first people to sleep in the albergue. That was five years ago, so things may have changed, but it was a very nice albergue with a couple of small bedrooms. Buen camino,Laurie

Yess I see you have met Mónica! She is so nice :OD

When you are in Villaconejos de Trabaque, you will meet Pepe and Antonio! I guess I will see them in your video as well! :OD

Keep on Walking!

About Campillo de Altobuey: I know the large building (sports hall) is kind of scary but I don't think it means anything that the door was open when you came back. I think the same thing happened to me and I assumed it was the "hospitalera" or a security guard or someone that was somehow connected to the sports hall. In the morning the gates were closed, although the lady said that she would leave them open, so someone had messed with them as well since I went to sleep. I had to climb the fence to get out the next day…!

Sara, at what time does the sun rise and when does it get dark?? I would love to walk in Winter, but I think I would have to hurry up before it gets dark in the afternoon…??

Hey BP!

It is light around 8am, although I rarely start walking before 9:30am.

It is very dark at 6:15pm, my goal is to always arrive prior to 6:00pm, 5:30pm is better.

Cheers,
Sara

Hi Sara, In case you want to shorten the day, Alan Sykes said “in Caracena the landlady at the bar told me her son is now offering shelter for pilgrims: not quite sure what, but definitely including a shower”. If available it makes for a very handy alternative to an otherwise awkward stage, so any feedback would be most welcome
Thanks for the videos - they're great.

There is also a Casa Rural in Tarancueña, very nice but quite expensive (about 50 euros, don't remember exactly) if future pilgrims would like to push on 7 kms after Retortillo de Soria. I stayed there in order to shorten the next stage. From Tarancueña to San Esteban de Górmaz it is "only" about 37 kms!

The bartender in Caracena offered me accomodations but I chose to walk onwards. She also mentioned there was a possibility of sleeping in Olmillos.

I did a shorter stage from San Esteban the next day to make up for the marathon. 😎

I’m behind in posting videos (slow wifi out here 🤣) - but today I walk into Burgos!!!!!!!!

I will make a ‘tips and tricks’ video for this amazing Camino soon. 🙂

I’ve had enough of the chilly weather so I will be flying tomorrow to Malaga to begin the Camino Mozarbe. 😎

Hi Sara, OK, thanks again for the videos, I, and I think several others, look forward to the remaining daily reports and the tips and tricks summary.
I hope it's warmer for you in the south.

I've just worked my way through these videos! Lots of useful info and love the fun of it all. It's always good to be reminded that Caminos are supposed to be lots of fun, not an SAS initiation course.
