Folding trekking poles went through security without any problems. They each carry one back pack for the journey

Ecstasy!

A rare respite -
listening to Gregorian chant under the supermoon.

Greetings from the Camino!
FaN I listened to that glorious Gregorian chanting early this morning, and as soon as I got on the Camino met the first Canadian in two weeks... A holy coincidence?

Hoping GPO will post more pictures as I don't have the savvy to do so.

Crossing the Pyrennes from France to Spain was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. Absolutely gorgeous! Seeing the monastery in Roncesvalles from high up in the mountains, and imagining how pilgrims over many centuries must have felt when they first saw it, was special.

From there we traveled to Zubiri then Pamplona. Great tapas or pinchos in Basque Country. Hardest day was climbing the Hill of Pardon. As we walked through the small towns we met pilgrims of all ages from many countries. Many Italians and Spaniards do the Camino on bike "bicigrinos".
Had two wonderful days in Logrono. Marvelous wine in the Rioja region and a vibrant foodie scene on San Juan and Calle Laurel.

Unique to Spain are this small cafe bars in even the tiniest towns.
They serve coffee along with beer on tap and all kinds of whiskey and wine
with small plates of tasty savory snacks. And not expensive! Less for a glass of tinto and 3 different tapas than a cup of coffee at Starbucks!

So I have suggested to Sean that he open a cafe bar in New Orleans ...think it would go over well there!

Anyway the whole commonality between this Camino experience and airstreams- for those of you who are likely wondering- is that both are
about freedom of movement, enjoying the beauty of the world outdoors, meeting new people, and sharing a meal and an adventure!

Walking from Najera to Santo Domingo tomorrow.
For now looking for a cafe bar for a glass of clara- beer mixed with fresca...
Sounds disgusting but wildly popular here. Most refreshing after a long walk!

Well you leave the country for a few weeks and the next thing you
know is that Burger King is buying Tim Hortons?

Got some great pics to post once I learn how
Now less than 200 km from Santiago

I didn't know where to put this photo that my son just sent me from Jasper, Alberta. FAN I hope you don't mind.
He sent me others; boon docking on the Banks of the North Saskatchewan River near Rocky Mountain House, Alberta and resting beside the David Thomson Highway on the Kootenay Plains. He will be heading back east soon, but I sense that he really needed to get close to the land of his birth area in order to feed his sole. He also managed to stop into Rearguard Falls where the salmon are performing their farewell tour.
I just love the way the Globetrotter shyly presents herself to the magnificent iron steam locomotive, neither able to acknowledge the other's beauty but certainly well aware that they share a very special ability to create extraordinarily strong feelings.
And the Jeep does her job.
