Day 34. Calzadilla-Mansilla de Las MulasSeptember 7 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C
Reliegos to Mansilla 6.2km.
We had to make the decision of whether to follow the Camino on the straight old Roman road with nothing but Meseta or cut across to El Burgo Ranero and rejoin the French Camino path.
At breakfast we discussed it. We couldn't face another 18km of nothing but most of the others were keen to do it, hoping the old road might peep through the new surfacing just up ahead somewhere.
The Murphy’s decided to follow us on what we dubbed the Australian way. We walked with the group for about 4km then we and the Murphys turned left leaving our other friends behind with great wailing of Adios Amigos and the like.
It was only 2km to El Burgo Ranero and the new Camino Frances. The Roman Road was the old way called the Green Way and was just more dust and rocks.Read more
