Leaving Gijon and onto Avilés meant traveling through a very industrial section. We decided to take a taxi that brought us almost to a rural area once again.

I decided to walk across Spain to pursue the many things I love about life: the great outdoors, spending time with friends, meeting new people, food, wine, music, and challenging the physical self. I'm fortunate to have a wonderful husband who has provided me with the encouragement, support, and love I've needed over the past several months of training and preparing.
