Traveling Nancy

Traveling around the world as far as I can go.

Other thoughts about the road to Acebo


Today I crossed the highest point on the Camino (1505 meters), The Cruz de Ferro (the Iron Cross) where I was supposed to leave the stone I have been carrying from home. It is supposed to significant leaving behind life’s burdens. The pile of stones just didn’t seem like the place I wanted to leave mine.

This is where people leave a stone with their burdens behind.
I just woke up thinking about it. This walk has been such a joy for me. Perhaps I will leave my stone along the way tomorrow in a spot that feels right for me.

By the way, here is part of the stone path we walked down today.

Some roads had a lot of stones.

There were flowers on the stone house.


Love those stone houses in Acebo.




Wonderful views in Acebo
The brand new Albergue that I am in tonight is like a hotel. The beds are brand new and very comfortable. But I miss the homey feel of the ones we have been in before,

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. That stone path looks rather wicked, I hope you have sturdy shoes!


  2. This stretch of the camino was one of my favorite parts over 10 yrs ago.


  3. wow it looks hot out there


  4. I’m enjoying your photos and posts, Nancy. It makes me ache to be back on the Camino. Now you’re to the place where I started the walk in 2012 with James Twyman and 11 others. We walked from Sarnia to Santiago de Compostela. Enjoy!! I’m so happy for you.
