Winter Camino

I just walked across the frontier bridge from Hendaye in France and entered Spain. I shall be on the Camino in the morning. This post comes to you from a locutorio in Irun, where I am waiting for a late train to Burgos. It gets into Burgos at 1.45 am, so I am not sure what I will do. Probably stay in the station until a sensible hour, then go to the cathedral to find Mass and get a pilgrim stamp, ready to start.

This is a short winter Camino, across the meseta from Burgos to Moratinos, and it is offered in memoriam for Juli. See Reb´s blog.

Paddy and Reb, if you read this, expect me in about six days, January 2nd: I´m aiming for 20 km per day. (Hornillos, Castrogeriz, Boadilla, Villalcazar de Sirga, Calzadilla de la Cueza, Moratinos.)


About Gareth Thomas

After a mixed career as an aircraft technician, London fringe theatre playwright, Franciscan friar, and secondary school teacher, I find myself dividing my time mostly between looking after the needs of four donkeys in a remote location in the mountains in the Costa Blanca and preparing a legal case against the corrupt management of my monstrous last employer - the Elians group - for unfair dismissal. I like to hear the wind in the pine trees. I do not like struggling to get a duvet into a duvet cover. My musical tastes are extinct and I have mostly given up cycle racing.
