Swimming on The Camino

Today was a short 13km hop for us from Guillena. Even that was tiring after an awful nights sleep at Hostal Bar Frances due to some wretched pump switching on and off all night plus a lack of air due it being an internal room.

Here in Castilblanco de los Arroyos our luck was in as we happened upon the brand new Hospederia de la Plata (955 73 53 49 ) gorgeous room with terrace and wet room shower plus an outdoor pool 🙂 ours for 20 euro each!

So we are now 42km into the 1000km walk.

Thank you Bar Casa Leon for the wifi


Here I am in Seville waiting with a delicious espresso for the Amigos office on Calle San Jacinto 25 to open so we can collect our credenciales ( sounds very exotic like travelling in Victorian times).
We had an excellent evening in Seville, how great it is to be able to sit outside without hordes of drunken youths and semi naked women bawling at you! Would love to live here a while.

My second camino

Today sally and I start on the pilgrimage Via de la Plata from Seville to Santiago about 1000km and with 16km of vertical height gain ( and 16km descent).
Sally only gets the first week due to her work & domestic commitments.
I was hoping for 5 weeks so I could meet up with Em & Mark who are doing the camino Frances. However, due to the imminent sale of my old offices I may have to cut short to return home for the sale completion, and rent a wheelbarrow to stuff my mattress with all that loot 🙂
