Our first few days include resting my knees, a 12th century partially pagan abbey, a surprise albergue pool, and plenty of café con leche.
Nearly 18 miles and 4500 feet of elevation gain really tested us but we made it and crossed the border into Spain.
Beautiful Bruges lace and Belgian canal hopping is marred by an excruciating day of travel.
Rural coastland takes me into Belgium, Bruges, and my baby.
After 3 weeks apart Vanessa and I finally meet back up in the Dam for some good fun with Amy.
