The wanderings of a woman on her way


This map (click to enlarge) represents our tentative itinerary. We will travel by boat (blue), bike (black) and foot (red). We will stay in tents, hostels, hotels—even in a Parador in Léon Spain. We will eat when hungry, rest when weary, enjoy the local beer and wine, and strike up conversations with people we meet along the way.

For many people, it is difficult to understand our peregrination, especially since we have such a cavalier attitude towards our wanderings. Being unconstrained by time or schedule, we have the luxury to follow our hearts.

We have several adventures and towns that are must do/see; other than that, we will travel where the spirit takes us, our adventures directed by curiosity and whims.
