Camino de Santiago (Pedrouzo to Santiago de Compostela)

We made it!

We left our albergue at the usual time, which meant we were close to the last group out. The walk itself was rainy but pretty until Monte de Gozo, where you can see down to the city of Santiago. 784 palabras más

Greed Is Good

A relaxing time in Benidorm, Spain

I have mentioned before that I live thorn between land and sea. I grew up relatively near the ocean, and Summer always meant endless time at the beach: as a child building castles and running in the sand, jumping around in salty puddles and jumping amongst small waves when the ocean allowed it; as a teenager making sure I was getting the best tan, but also investing in some sort of amateur bodyboarding because it looked cool; and finally, as an adult, both sunbathing, diving and swimming in the ocean when it allowed and having great walks until sunset. 754 palabras más
