Apr 5 2017 – It’s time for Jim and me to get back to Spain and walk another Camino. We left home on Wednesday with a flight plan to go through Chicago and London to Madrid. Unfortunately, our flight from Chicago was canceled after two hours on the tarmac, due to mechanical problems. We overnighted in a nice hotel courtesy of American Airlines, and rebooked to go to Boston, then Madrid. When we packed for Spain, we did not foresee being out in the cold and rainy weather of Chicago and Boston. We were so happy to get to Madrid and warm our bones! Then we hustled through Customs to our separately booked flight to Sevilla, where we will spend four days seeing the sights and recovering from jet lag before starting our Camino.
We walked our first Camino across northern Spain in 2011, then the Camiñho Portugues in 2014, and part of the Jakobusweg in Germany last summer. This time, we’re going to try the Via de la Plata, which runs 621 miles (1000 km) from Sevilla to Campostela de Santiago. Come walk with us!
