First time in the cathedral

That night we slept wonderfully quiet to 07:00 clock. Philip did not want to get up and so are Olli and I go for a vegetable at 08.00 clock. As described in the book, there was a steep rise in the first pass. It was cool to go wet and not good. The feet still gave me problems. The additional weight of the rucksack pressed.
Also, additional patch on the problem areas brought no relief. I was thinking about buying new shoes at the earliest opportunity. The attenuation of the Meindl shoes could be a little better, or the outsole would be firmer and protect against the pressure of small stones. Throughout the day it got a bit better. After a pause, the start was always very tedious.
At 09.00 clock we were in Azofra and had breakfast. Dos CCL, una pequeno bocadillo con queso y tomato y una bocadillo pequeno con marmelada. This has been going quite smoothly from the lips and is also understood. But the cheese roll was a baguette. Do not worry. The lady in the bar had a good deal to do, because not only pilgrims had breakfast.
The way was very difficult soggy and mushy. At Rollo de Azofra a funny pilgrim from Ferry Newcastle Amsterdam carhas his old shoes left. Also a kind of disposal option. Santo Domingo de la Calzada Until we had to cope with two passports and additionally the gently undulating landscape. But this was also a very nice environment. In Santo Domingo, the pilgrim character is incorporated even into the street drain.
Once there we went with Peregrino travels with good Ferry Rosslare Cherbourg in the cathedral and looked at the chicken coop. The cock crowed and that is to bring the pilgrims on the way forward luck. Let's see.
At the break we ate tomatoes and bread, talked with Martin, Ronny and Lanette and pulled the leg warmers again. Behind Santo Domingo, the mussels were of gold suddenly to the concrete piers. Each region vies probably the most beautiful pilgrimage characters. Then it was a bit warmer and at times also came out the sun. At about 15:00 clock we were in Granon where we met Andre. He had already reached his daily quota, already checked in and showered. Occupied in the village bar, quite dark and only by old men, we had a CCL and a gift of cake. The hostess was thrilled that we wanted to go further.
The limit of Rioja at the Uni Burgos was announced to us with a sign from afar. After about an hour we met Christian Mühlenthaler. With it, we are the last stretch to Redecilla de Camino gone together. He is a teacher and always goes in stages, in free times from home, Voting village in the Canton of Bern, to Santiago. He had his 56 hiking. During his breaks, even on the road, he paints in addition to his diary entries small watercolor paintings in his book. I have also photographed him with Olli and his image of Redecilla.
After checking into the hostel of the parish there was only cold water for showering. The gas boiler was not designed for the onslaught. The accommodation was but ok. There was a bar in the house, and the night and the dinner offered, was offered by the ladies of the parish donation. We chose our menu and were entered for 19.30 clock. Philip also appeared, and so we agreed with him and Christian on a table.

History trip to the Institute

His name was Nikolai Iwanowitsch Wawilow. Was called, because he's already a little dead. This man had an idea that could lead to that once the world not to starve. He has already saved individual countries, Russia does not belong to. Otherwise you would thank him his merits perhaps more.
Nikolai Wawilow - Vavilov was a biologist. Botanist, to be more precise. His passion was the crops whose seeds he collected and preserved all over the world. To save the world. But how to save the world with hundreds of thousands became filled with plant seeds? In the Ferry Liverpool Dublin discount I read a report about it.
An example. We feed us to the oversized part of only a handful of crops. Four, to be exact. Rice, wheat, soy and corn to feed the world. What is, if something happens to the wheat? What is, if for some reason, dropped the wheat, provides at least nearly 20% of the world's consumed calories? Would that be a problem? Vavilov thought so. And began to collect. Not just wheat. All staple crops, which he finds could.
On all five continents. He was a son of wealthy parents could pay perhaps himself his travels Maybe there was also a higher science budget with more travel resources to his times. How he financed his travels, I don't know. However, I suspect that would be today no longer possible, where it is no longer possible to keep the material it gathered.
Vavilov laid the foundation stone for the oldest and world's third largest collection of crop seeds. A total 330,000 seed samples from all continents store Research Institute of plant industry in the Vavilov named after him. Potatoes from Chile, beans from North America, grain from Ethiopia. Most countries have now similar facilities, but none can it in art and history with the Vavilov Institute record in Pavlovsk.
If before the terrain similar to when the Ferry Liverpool Belfast holiday is, not much to notice of this. From the station there are small buses on the grounds of the Institute. But if you don't know where the site is or how it looks, you can easily feel the pulse by return of post back to drive, because one seems to be increased on the wrong bus to the train station.
An exaggeration would be to refer to the area as unimpressive. Decrepit, low buildings stand on the small cul-de-sac, extinct-acting mini market is at the third sight in operation and those who encounter, look at one, as they had never seen a stranger in their street.

Badminton Tournament in Australia

On Monday came again to say goodbye. After I had taken and passed Io for international Airport, I made my way to the domestic airport. Since my flight did not start until 21:50, I still had enough time to read and listen to music - too much time. In Brisbane arrived, I went in search of a place to sleep, there in the night drove no more trains. So I ended up next to a vending machine on the gray floor in the airport. Not exactly convenient, but something was Schalf but indulged me. After a 2 hour trip I arrived Tuesday morning but then on the Sunshine Coast on - almost today.
The next two weeks are probably quite a learning - intensive, since I have to do some tests, Exams and Reports. Is, however, only went surfing again so my surfboard also know that I 'll be back tomorrow. But I hope that I will still find enough time to write regular posts for the blog.
Today is the best day for a long time like it was 2 years ago on new Ferry Harwich Hook of Holland and fortunately I have free and all my university stuff already done. Now I was already 2 hours at the pool and was already running, I will bring you up to date times now. On Saturday we took a tour of the university to Noosa. First, there was a 2-hour hike around the national park of Noosa an.Am beach and through the woods we went along the coast ; On the one hand you could admire the sea and the rocks and on the other hand, the impressive flora ( good choice of words ). The closer we nourished ourselves of the city, the more surfers came to meet us. The whole coast along there was sensational surf spots and the waves were almost perfectly due to a cyclone off the coast.
The boys had it all pretty crass it and refused to be particularly impressed by the rocks on the coast. Some even waited for a pause between the waves sets and jumped off the rocks into the water. In Noosa arrived waited a bit overcrowded and overpriced coastal town on us. Not for nothing Noosa is also often compared to Monaco. Furthermore, additional tourists were attracted by the taking place on the weekend surf contest. Overall, the trip was definitely worth it.
On Sunday stood at a badminton tournament like on the Ferry Holyhead Dublin discount trip. My doubles partner, an approximately 35- year-old musician who picked me up at 8 clock in the morning and we went to the hall in Nambour. The hall is pretty cool, because there is only badminton courts and everything else is focused on badminton. Since a mixed player has been searched yet I signed up also kurzfirstig even for mixed tournament at. My partner was an older Asian lady who did not make at first glance the best impression on the field.
But while the first game I noticed directly that she had a lot of experience and few good punches it had. So we won all our group games, even when we last had two match points against us. Also in the finale we kept in the 3rd set the upper hand and so we won at the end of the mixed field and I $ 30. In doubles, unfortunately we lost the first game 30:31. (1 set to 31 - no extension - what are the rules for please ) and also because of the victory in the second group game brought nothing more. Overall, many players from Brisbane and the Gold Coast at the start and also many start Asian players were.
