"Con pan, queso y vino se hace el camino"

Many cultures share the almost mythical figure of a wandering, wise person. For the English it’s normally a knight-errant, for Americans it’s a lone horseman…and for the Spanish it could be a shepherd. In fact some of the sayings we use today are the result of shepherds’ sayings.

The phrase we give to you this month, “con pan, queso y vino se hace el camino” is one of them. It could mean several things: on the one hand that we can live our lives basically; on the other, that any project can be carried out if the basic elements are well supported. We imagine a shepherd managing the long walks thanks to his wineskin, his large loaf of bread and his cheese; basic things that are well done are great.
