Traveling Nancy

Traveling around the world as far as I can go.

Leon to La Virgen Del Camino


This morning Pam and I slept until after 7 and each had a wonderful shower with real towels to dry our bodies.  Pam is not feeling well.  At the last moment before we left our private room in the San Martin, I searched under my bed to make sure I didn’t lose anything else.  Wow, my precious water bottle had rolled way under the bed. I left with a giant smile on my face.

After juice and a croissant on the way out of Leon we stopped at the Pantheon, a beautiful hotel that was in the movie, “The Way.”. It had been converted from a Monastery.

Today we only walked 9.5 km to La Virgen Del Camino. It is actually a suburb of Leon. Although we did pass some tiny houses on the way.  Here is one of them.

We have washed and dried all of our clothes in a machine and are just enjoying a very restful day.  I had a siesta for a couple of hours and am about to go out for another pilgrim menu meal.

Traveling has been a passion of Nancy Panitch's life and she loves seeing how people in other cultures live. Her travels have taken her to many places within the United States, Asia, Europe, South America, and Africa. Being around people inspires her and she has much gratitude for the kindred Souls that are joining together with her in body, mind, and heart. She moved from Chicago to Portland, Oregon in 1982. It was one of the best decisions of her life. While in Portland she stays very, VERY busy. She volunteers (Inter-Religious Action Network, Human Rights Council, & ushering for various theaters); attends a Unitarian Universalist church; goes hiking with groups (Cascade Prime Timers & Trails Club of Oregon) and also with individual friends. Book groups, movie group, and bridge groups occupy her time as well. Her quiet activities include yoga, knitting, Sudoku, and reading. She enjoys all of these activities, but making time to see her wonderful 4 grandchildren takes priority over it all. She is happy to share this blog and hopes to encourage others to travel.

  1. Yes, in Spain a couple of times or maybe more, people walked me all the way to my destination when I asked them directions. Nice!


  2. Love it! I had a long hike today and thought of you and the Camino. I think I may need to go back next summer and finish. Thanks for the stories.


  3. Thanks for sharing your beautiful trip Nancy! Looks amazing! love you-Heather
