Bookish Matters

The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.

Lord of the Woods

I´m in Roncevalles. Today I hiked through one of the largest beech forest left in Europe. Here dwells Basajaun, a yeti-like creature who protects the sheep and taught man to farm. He´s very interesting; learn more here.


  1. I have a small black Yeti-like creature that comes to the door every day looking for you! I am enjoying looking for your posts, keep them up.

  2. So, I see your first town to go through is Pamplona. Thank goodness you will miss those bulls running through by a couple weeks! However the Hemingway connection is still there for you.
