Carrión de Los Condes to Terradillos de Los Templarios…

After yesterday’s fun little fact about the town named for the rotting flesh of the counts, I did a little research about Terradillos de Los Templarios. The meaning of “small Templar terraces” refers to the time in the 13th Century when the Knights Templar were stationed at a small church here, to provide protect for the pilgrims.

With my morning church fellowship duties, Glenn and I didn’t connect by phone today, but he did send a What’sApp message about his walk and accommodation for tonight. He walked all day with a man named Dom, pictured with the tractor down below. They walked 10.5 miles to get to the first town, but luckily there was a great food truck about half way. Also a sign that that he is half way to Santiago!

The albergue is very, very nice (two verys!!). He paid 30 Euros for a single room and checked in early enough to do some laundry, which dried very quickly in the heat. Dinner was a nice buffet and started serving at 6p.m., unusually early for Spain. But he was glad to eat early and get to bed. Another 5:15 start tomorrow and would like to finish by 1p.m. He’s expecting about the same distance with no services.

The way out of town…early morning.
Sharing the road with a fellow peregrino is great.

Half way!
Do these shoes have another 250 miles in them?
Home for tonight!

Buen camino, Glenn!

    I sure am enjoying reading about your adventures! When we did our Northern Spain Bike ride occasionally criss-crossing the Camino, a favorite treat along the way was a Coke Normal and a bag of patatas chips. The cerveza at the end of the day was refreshing, too! May you continue to have good health.


    1. Thanks for the encouragement, Karen! Glenn has been able to check in with the blog every few days.
