Day-13, Sun, May 8, Lebeny to Mosonmagyarovar

Sadly only 2 more walking days left. Most of today’s 12.6 mi. were coincident with the official Camino route. So it’s no wonder that on passing a large, highly mechanized dairy farm, one of the workers ran after me to offer me something in Hungarian. Then I heard the German word, Milch. After a few minutes he came out with a 1.5 Liter (a bit more than 1.5 qts) plastic bottle of chilled whole milk. I was in disbelief. I showered him with “köszönöm” many times over (thank you) and found a nearby spot to drink nearly all of it—warm milk just didn’t sound good. So grateful how the Camino provides.

    What’s your favorite breakfast? Just to know what to buy for Thursday (definitly no gulyas and no 1.5 liter bottle of milk…)
    Love and hugs,

    What an amazing story about the milk and am sure it was delicious. Love the Camino sign just “there” in middle of anywhere. Yesterday I had the joy of hiking with a young man who just learned about us and the hike the day before.
    He is leaving the end of this month with just an open mind for all that might be there for him. He has wanted to do the Camino since 1997. He is a journalist between jobs so felt this was perfect time to go. Hopefully we instilled him with some good insights.
    Sorry to hear this Camino comes to an end, I thought you had another week. But actually one’s Camino continues on wherever we are. 😍👣🥾💗

    You had quite a day! The milch story is sweet. What a nice man to offer you all that milch!
    Please tell Suzanna & Peter hello from me. I had such a great day with them so many years ago.
    Enjoy the rest of your walk! 🍷
