Retreat ~ Spain

A small village hidden behind trees near the town of Zubiri on the Camino de Santiago in Spain


This is one of the tiniest villages I have seen.

Hidden behind trees, quiet and relaxing, this little village near Zubiri in Spain on the Camino de Santiago is a perfect place for a retreat. There are no distractions around except for forests stretching on the surrounding hills. No cars passing every minute and probably not even internet.

When I walked through the village, I encountered only an old man sitting on a bench who raised his cane and with a big toothless smile wished me a “Buen Camino“.

Sometimes it’s just a good idea to disconnect from the “real world” and go on a retreat to find inspiration and clear the mind from all the accumulated clutter.


Things I love today:

The smell of Lavender

The taste of French Cuisine

The sight of pretty eyes

The sound of Silence

The feel of a good productive & awesome day


Quick Tips:

Do not rely too much on zoom lenses. It makes you lazy. Learn first to move with your feet instead of zooming!
