Arrived in Sevilla safe and sound

Hi All

After a long trip from Ottawa via Montreal via Munich via Barcelona = using air miles, I arrived at the Hotel Simon in city centre of Sevilla. The hotel is utterly charming with old world furniture and furnishings. I walked around for an hour or so and the centre is wonderfully preserved area of little shops, panderias and restaurants. I will love it here for a day and a half.

The only drawback is that my backpack did not arrive on my flight and a lovely lady at Spanair, Angela, is putting special effort into finding it because I am a peregrino. She asked me to pray for her on the camino and I will. The earliest I can get my pack is tomorrow and it may take longer than that.

That is ok with me, a delay in Santiago will be no hardship.

The temperature is 38 celsius and is forecast to be this hot or warmer. Welcome to Spain! I am glad that I had a lot of warm weather training this summer in Canada.

I just have time for a shower and out to eat when the restaurant opens at 8:30

All the best,

Bill B

    Welcome to Europe for your walk with the angels – but what is a peregrino?
