It will peck your eye out

I came across the last of the Spanish knights while hiking on an unnamed ridge above Astorga. He was dressed out and packing weaponry. He even had a Golden Eagle that he let me hold for a while. Her name was Julia. The prowess of the Golden Eagle in the sport of falconry is legendary. 

Buen caminó!


Join Mark and Vicki for a Mediterranean experience in October, 2018. We'll be cruising aboard the luxurious Celebrity Reflection. See the link here for details. Onboard lectures will provide focus as we visit the ports of Malta, Rhodes, Santorini, and Athens among others. An optional add-on visit to Rome is possible on either end of the trip.
