I´m in Astorga and laid up with a cold/ear thing. So where do I go? Not an albergue, that´s for sure. I´m in a 4-star hotel overlooking the city. Top floor. It´s gorgeous.
The walk is going well and I´m loving the change of scenery from the flatness of the meseta to the hills of Astorga. I will take a rest day tomorrow (at the hotel, of course) and then head into the mountains the day after. No sense in pushing and compromising my health.
Anyway, I´ve thought of Dad´s offer to drive the Camino a few times with love, so the snazzy hotel was my compromise. 🙂
Sending love from Spain,

Given your illness, you seem to have more time to post, which I like. But I’m sorry you’re sick.
When you are walking, do you sing to pass the time? Have you met other singing walkers?
Sending love your way too!
Thinking about you lots during your journey!!! Get well!
So sorry you’re having to deal with this. Health to you….
Hi there! I absolutely sang on the Camino — a lot more when alone. I did also meet other singing walkers and even sang with some of them. Two of the gals I walked with I cajoled into singing their country’s national anthems. 🙂 I’m actually working on a soundtrack for all the songs I had in my head while walking outdoors, thinking inspired thoughts. 🙂 I’ll be sure to post about it soon!
