The “L” Memories – walking down the memory Camino lane

Long and Winding Road

Long and Winding Road

There is something so peaceful about a long and winding road (Cue the Beatles song). I never saw these roads as huge undertaking but as a quiet opportunity to think. Of course this would be a different story if this was after walking 6 hours already!

I admit I preferred the paths that were further away from the paved road. Being in deep thought and suddenly hearing cars go by doesn’t render itself to peaceful thinking. Nonetheless, when we are walking 300-500-800 km, we take all types of roads.

It’s all part of the journey.

Labyrinth?

Labyrinth?

I call this one Labyrinth but I’m not sure it truly is one, or one of those meditation circles.There are quite a few on the Camino, and this one seemed so perfectly placed in a wonderful location, mid point between two small villages.

And if you wonder whether I walked it all, I can tell you I certainly did. It’s made of stones perfectly placed and well maintained.

Lovely!

Lovely!

I thought this art was so lovely. This is found in the city of Vitoria, where painted walls can be found everywhere.

I was so impressed with the beautiful paintings often covering entire buildings.

I could actually create a slide show consisting entirely of Vitoria wall art and it would be amazing! This city was one of my favorite finds of my 2013 Camino.

Laves of pink

Laves of pink

At first sight, I thought these were beautiful pink flowers, and it wasn’t until I looked closer that I realized they weren’t flowers, but leaves! Pink leaves! 

I have no idea what type of tree this was, and I was taken by the beauty of it.

Thanks for joining me on my virtual Camino tour!
