Day 9 - 14

Day 14 - June 10, 28 km - Carrion de los Condes to Terrodillos de los Templarios.
In the heart of the Meseta. Extraordinary flat vistas that I love, and appear to be one of the few who does. The town was once owned bt the Knights of the Templars.

Day 13- June 9, 19,3 km - Fromista to Carrion de los Condes
Carrion de los Condes is a charming little town, with a beautiful park, filled with colorful rose bushes and a nearby river. Here we are staying in the Monastary Santa Clara.

Day 12- June 8, 36 km - Hontanas to Fromista
Light rain, strong front wind. Walked through Castrojeriz, a town dated back from the 9th century, followed by a major climb of Alto de Mostelares. After a steep descent is the start of the Meseta. Flat terrain composed of cereal fields as far as the eye can see. Crossed the Castillo Canal 1753-1859.

Day 11- June 7, 30,7 km- Burgos to Hontanas

Day 10 - June 6, 32km- Villafranca Montes de Oca to Burgos
Burgos is a beautiful and vibrant city. We can see it from at least 10 kms away from atop a hill. I am now walking with two French pilgrims, Francoise who lives near Lyon, and Jean-Marc who originates near the Belgium border. On this Saturday afternoon, we saw at least four weddings taking place, and parties that carried on through the night.

Day 9 - June 5, 24,1 km -Redecilla del Camino to Villafranca Montes de Oca
