Day-25 (9 May—Thu) El Cubo de la Tierra del Vino

Much less windy today and more enjoyable; walked 12.7 miles (20.3 km). Had a continental breakfast at the other albuerge which gave me a good start because nothing else was available along the way—that had to last me (and it it). Chose the Albergue Y&M and was one of the early ones to arrive at about 1:30 PM and first in the shower is always a treat.

Here are some memorable pictures: the first pic gave me a real scare, as in, do I really have to cross this water—panic; after looking at my electronic track, I realized I missed a detour about 100 yards back! The second picture is what the trail looked like paralleling the highway; the third and fourth pics, were common sights along the way.

    Glad you made it to Spain and that you didn’t have to traverse that swamp! The countryside looks beautiful.

    Markers are good! Yes, please avoid the water. The terrain looks quite different to the Croatia portion of your trip. XXOO .

    Hi Kurt,
    the following 2 proposals came to my mind to express the feeling of “lucky me” in our language:
    1. hab’ ICH ein Glück!
    2. geht’s MIR gut
    each emphasized on the capitalized words.
    Hope you will approve of these and wish you all the best for your “Spanish” walk. XOXOXO, Su

      I like both suggestions. Lucky me that I have you for things like that! Alles geht gut. Hab‘ schon den dritten Tag geschafft.
