We decided to jump into some of the thermal baths in the town of Caldas. These hot springs were made famous by the Romans and have been used ever since then. Watch the video below, or click here if you don’t see the preview.
In the Snow
I am hoping most of the snow has melted by now, otherwise this video may be painful. Either way, here is a glimpse of some of the fun you can have in the cold!
A friend of ours showed us how to milk goats and use it to make hot chocolate! It was quite the experience…
Visiting Spain: Bayona
Last year we visited Bayona, a small town on the Atlantic coast near Portugal. Here is a video of a look at this beautiful place!
Just up the coast from us is a region called Arousa Norte. While visiting this new area we found so much history and beauty!
Running in the mountains
Before moving from El Bierzo last spring, Joseph and I went for a long run up the mountains. A long run…
A Bakery in Galicia
While out visiting a nearby town, we stopped in at a bakery. Before we left, we had not only purchased some bread, but got a full tour and hour training session of how a Galician bakery produces some of the best bread in Spain.
Caldas de Reis
We lived in a friend’s apartment for three months while searching for a home in our new area of ministry. The town where we stayed was called CALDAS DE REIS. It has been around since Roman times and has been part of the thermal bath route here along the Atlantic coast. Here are some photos of our time in that beautiful area.
We were blessed to be able to visit friends in Hawaii last winter, and happened to be on island with some of the guys that went through the Liberty youth group. I used to lead summer and winter retreats called “Manathons” each year. We would camp in snow caves or canoe through the Boundary Waters. Whatever we did, we ate lots of strange things and had a great time. These four guys all participated in them. Upon arriving in Hawaii, it was their turn to plan the Manathon!
It was an amazing opportunity to be with these friends and I will never forget swimming with the sea turtles.
After attending a conference in another part of Spain we got away for a few days to Northern Europe. Here are some photos taken in Belgium and Luxembourg.
