Oh my God! Oh my God! Oh my God!

Im holding children and enjoying it! A miracle has occured! I will even go so far as to say, I think I will want one someday soon!
This story could be very long, but I am going to make it as brief as possible.......

Some freinds and I met these cool people on the Camino about 2 or 3km from Templarios (the half way point) where we spent the night. the long and short of it all is that they met on the Camino 3 years ago got married and have 2 beautiful kids and live on the Camino itself. They are a delightful couple James is from England and Mariane is Irish.

So they liked us because we talked for a long time with them and they ended up offering to set us up a secret alburgue! So we walked to the this pilgrim fountain about 2km from the town we were heading for and they met us there with tents, food, and massive quantities of wine!

It was one of the greatest parts of my trip so far! They were amazing hosts and we had such good food!, salad, shrimp, mussles, fish, and bread. MMMMMmmmmmm.....

Then in the morning they brought us breakfast, and I have an offer for a place to saty and help out when I finish the Camino!

Mmmmm so tasty! The food was tasty is what I mean!
Great news for me, because the Italy thing has sort of fallen through. The universe will provide!

As of now, im Leon, but Im moving on tomorrow to whatever is next!

Lots of Love!
