Day 10 Asturianos to Pueblo de Sanabria Cats on the Camino

  • Barry 









A shorter day 16km on the map

Apple Watch says I have walked a total of  20km today

Pueblo de Sanabria is on of the biodiversity capitals of Europe

The river system is very impressive – the water is so clean

today I developed something in my left lower shin which could be the start of shin splints I might have walked too fast – so tomorrow need to warm up and walk slower

I have sent some things on to Santiago from the correos (post office) not much but about 800g – I wasn’t using it and it was becoming a mental burden

walked through some beautiful undergrowth and forestine areas will show some pics below























Fellow Peregrinos










Sharing hardships and experiences is what brings people together

The Camino does just that – it could be fleeting moments in time or a few hours of interaction – the common bond and respect is real

This is a fellow Peregrino – Graham –  who hails from Australia  – he has walked many miles of pilgrimages

Graham shared this beautiful song that revolves around in his head while walking:

Nature Boy

The Lyrics are:

There was a boy

A very strange enchanted boy

They say he wandered very far

Very far

Over land and sea

A little shy and sad of eye

But very wise was he

And then one day

A magic day he passed my way

And while we spoke of many things

Fools and kings

This he said to me

“The greatest thing you’ll ever learn

Is just to love and be loved in return”

nature boy contd

A part of nature’s beauty








The song nature boy was written by eden adhez and first performed by Nat King Cole in 1948

There are many meaningful aspects of the words but the greatest message is in the last line – The greatest thing you’ll ever learn Is just to love and be loved in return.
