When we learned that good friends would be passing through Oviedo, Judy and I decided to take a short vacation from walking and took a bus from Luarca down to meet them. This was a much needed rest for our feet and gave us the opportunity to park ourselves in a hotel for three nights in a row!

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.
