O'Cebrerio to A BalsaYesterday in Spain
Good night's sleep in a private room. 6.30am start in the pitch black. Straight into an epic hill! But it was a beautiful walk on a gorgeous day. The scenery in Galicia is amazing. Glorious mountains as far as the eye can see. Through forest trails for most of the day. Less stops as less villages and longest walk yet today. Was 27km, 8 hrs, after we took a wrong turn out of Triacastela and added 3km to our journey!
3 long km! Feet ache but in a beautiful eco albergue tonight. Environmentally friendly and all organic food and products. The couple who run it met on the Camino! The place is called El Beso which means kiss! They are so lovely and help with bed bugs problem. I told them everything i did yesterday, washing and drying at 60.degrees and rucksack in to a black sack ans left in the sun. They assured me I've done all i can but doing the process again to be sure! No doubt I'll have to do it again down the line. Its such a common problem on The Way.
Have done over 170km and have 130km to go.
I'll arrive ahead of time if all goes well so might end up doing another 90km past Santiago and out to the coast, Finisterre. We'll see! Sitting in their gorgeous garden now with a beer and feeling very satisfied! They have hammocks!Read more
