The title seems a contradiction, but this year is a truth as "a temple". It was a really good last day 11 of March, when videos were taken by Gabriel. Now, that no one be deceived, if you visit and is a puny trickle. It does not look like that can happen, it appears to have strength to endure several more days. He has continued raining and that can be a guarantee, but here nothing is certain.
Anyway (I can be exaggerating a bit), I think well worth a trip to witness such a spectacle of Nature. See how water flows, as bubbling from the bottom up, as if boiling in a pot, when, además, are so few years in which it occurs.
I suppose that, with the spread of videos, The less this weekend, there will be visitors to enjoy the show. A backpack shoulder with some victuals and, as the saying goes, "If you drink water Tobazo, carrying a loaf of bread under his arm "
Even with the risk that someone can cross me off conceited, I can not resist publishing the assessment made, our Casa Rural Los Chorrones, a guest who recently stayed.
Also I do not know what were the reasons that led him to make this assessment via email and not using the tools provided you, Both our web, like any portal that made the reservation.
This is the mail (cut and paste).
Last weekend we had the opportunity to spend a wonderful night in your house, I wanted to thank all your help and give congratulations so much fun we had, how well maintained this house and help us prestasteis .
The house is a chulada and the area is wonderful: We hope to see you some other time.
a cordial greeting:
Carries 25 years working in various publications such as marketing and sales manager. Nevertheless, Dutch East 55 Licensed years in Philology, He decided one day to devote to what really makes you happy: riding a bicycle, Spain travel and write.
In March 2015, but without completely abandoning their professional relationship with various business publications, He launched with his wife, la Fotografa Elizabeth Harper, the page www.fietseninspanje.nl, a website that has grown to become one of the most important sources of information for those Dutch and Belgians who want to spend their holidays in Spain to pedal stroke. This year the site has received more than 106.000 visits. Hans and Liesbeth recently have come part of the Camino del Cid. We talked to Hans, half of this Dutch tandem.
– How do you knew the route?
Fair in Utrecht where was present the Consortium Camino del Cid through its manager, Alberto Luque. In September 2017 We decided to walk a stretch road bike, We went from Burgos a El Burgo de Osma, in Soria.
– What struck you the itinerary?
For me the Camino de Cid is the most attractive route of the great routes there in Spain. It has everything. Landscape, history and the figure of the Cid that accompanies you during the tour.
– What other Spanish routes have made?
On the web we write about cycling in all its aspects. Of course we have to go all routes, especially the most popular but due to time constraints we sometimes only part of a route. On the web we also have 13 an own routes, two or three weeks and we have a list of the best greenways, of which we have already traveled seven. I do not think you have enough time in my life to do all the routes that I would go, let alone with a woman who is a photographer and wants to stop every 5 minutes to take pictures.
– After traveling the Camino del Cid, What aspects I called more attention?
The interior of Spain is even emptier and less populated than we thought ... and that is perceived within a few kilometers after leaving Burgos. You can spend hours in the saddle without finding a bar, a bakery, a supermarket. In our country always you find something to eat or drink in 5 kilometers.
– What does he see a stranger in the Camino del Cid?
The gist of Spain. A country with a wide inside and outside, a vacuum that we know where we live in Holland 18 million people in a country the size of Aragon. If you walk all day in the stunning landscape of the Plateau you can feel even a little bit lost. Until you reach the end of the day to a village or a small town. Suddenly there are people, no light, no noise coming from the bars, restaurants and squares. this contrast, literally day and night, It's what I like about a trip within Spain.
– What you have detected deficiencies in the Camino del Cid?
The good Cid Road is the quality of information and its maps. The web is a very high level. For foreigners, What is missing are practical solutions especially with regard to the transport. How do I go with my bike to Burgos if I get on a plane to Madrid?. If I drive where I leave?. If I want to just 5 days cycling How do I return to Burgos?. What bus company allowed to travel with bikes?. These are questions that visitors to our website frequently raised me. I think we need cooperation with a network of companies offering this type of practical and logistical solutions such as OPR does exist in the Way of Santiago.
– Holland is a country that is heavily implanted cycling. Do you think the Camino del Cid can be an interesting attraction for the Dutch public?
In the Netherlands we are 15 million cyclists. If you are all going to be a jam from Burgos to Valencia. No, walk the Camino del Cid bike always going to be for those who seek adventure. Not for everyone. But I am convinced of the potential of Camino del Cid and there may be many more Dutch visitors. Not only cyclists, also they are traveling by motorcycle or car. There are more and more Dutch time they want to know the real Spain.
– In March 2015 you you released the web www.fietseninspanje.nl. For what purpose?
In 2013 We wanted to make a bike trip in Spain. It was hard to find serious and objective information. Then I had the idea of developing a platform with all relevant information for cyclists in Holland and Belgium.
– What kind of content you offer?
We want to inform all Dutch and Flemish seeking information on cycling to Spain. Those who want to make a three-week trip with panniers, but also those who want to train on road bike or mountain bike. Or even make a day trip to San Sebastián and Cádiz. Every year we travel to Spain two months to write the contents and usually visit several trade shows to gather more information.
– What they seek Internet users entering the page?
Really all but perhaps the most popular sections with providing information on companies that rent bicycles.
– In a few years ... where do you situate the Camino del Cid?
I hope more people enjoy their beauty and locations that are on the route to benefit from this, but at the same time I hope to continue to have the tranquility and authenticity that has now.
