The 40-Hike Challenge

I’m sitting here writing this on a somewhat sunny Bilbao Saturday morning, coughing and lamenting the fact that I’m not out in the mountains or by the sea and trying to get over this cold that won’t let me get out and about. Estoy escribiendo esta entrada un sábado por la mañana con algo de sol, aquí con mi tos y mocos, lamentando el hecho que tengo que descansar y no estar en el monte o por el mar, intentando recuperarme bien de este maldito resfriado. 

As I become more and more interested in hiking, I find more and more incredible places to go, especially near Bilbao. As it’s already February, and my January was filled with flight delays, colds and rainy weather, I’m going to make my challenge a bit easier. Como cada vez más me interesa el senderismo, encuentro más sitios bonitos, especialmente cerca de Bilbao, capital del mundo. Como ya es febrero, y mi enero era completo de retrasos de vuelo, resfriados y tiempo malo, voy a hacer mi reto por el año un poco más fácil. 

This year, I am hoping to go on 40 hikes. I’ve already been on one, or only been on one, depending on whether that glass is half-empty or half-full. That means, as the weather improves and I’m over this cold once and for all, I’ll be exploring more and more the great outdoors and writing about it here. Este año, espero hacer 40 rutas de senderismo. Ya he hecho uno, o solo he hecho uno…depende si miras el vaso medio vacio y medio lleno. Eso quiere decir, como el tiempo mejorar y cuando me he recuperado bien del resfriado, voy a explorar más y más la naturaleza y escribir de ello aquí en el blog.

I got the idea from Trail To Peak‘s 52 hike challenge last year (and this year). Since I live in a place where the weather is quite uncooperative, I’ve eliminated the hikes by 12 for a nice, round 40 hike challenge. Days on the Camino will count toward this goal. El blog de Trail To Peak y su reto de 50 rutas de senderismo me ha inspirado el año pasado (y este año). Como vivo en un lugar donde el tiempo no suele ser bueno, he elimando las rutas por 12 por un reto de 40 rutas de senderismo. Días del Camino cuentan para mi meta.

I hope you join me for this adventure in 2016, and I hope to get this show on the road very soon!  Espero que os apuntéis para leer sobre mis aventuras en 2015, y espero empezarlo muy pronto!

  1. My travel arrangements are now in place and I shall be starting the Camino del Norte 22 April. Hope I might be able to meet up with you as I pass through Bilbao.

  2. How exciting! Let me know what day you’re in Bilbao (hopefully not a Tuesday, but even on Tuesday, my hectic day) and I will make a hueco to meet up with you as it would be an honour to meet you. Buen Camino and bring extra rain gear…the mild weather this winter will surely mean a very wet spring!

    I’ll be in Málaga this upcoming weekend by the way, hoping that the weather cooperates so I can go to Antequera and El Torcal, as I missed my chance for Caminito del Rey tickets. Boo! Anywhere else you’d recommend?
