Day 2 são Pedro de rates
After hiking for 34 km / 21mi I finally made it to rates where I’ll spend the night. On my way here I started walking through the city and industrial area of Porto for about 16 km/ 10 mi and I got tired of the streets pretty soon. Also my legs started hurting and I got real bad blisters on my feet, but I kept pushing. The landscape got more beautiful the more I walked and when I was only 3km / 1.5 mi away from my destination my body gave in and I couldn’t take another step- so I had to take a taxi to the albergue. I was still proud of myself for making it this far on my first day.
In the albergue I was with 3 other Germans and the Brazilian- French guy I met back in Porto. We all spend a good time together and I’m now resting to walk to barcelos tomorrow.Read more
