Where's my bloody sticks?May 30 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C
Walking sticks are a blessing and a curse. They can give you a boost especially when you go up hills but a pain when you forget them. This is the second day in a row I've forgotten them.

Today we walked inland away from the coast for the first time. To Guemes Hostel, considered by all the guides to be the best hostel on the whole route.
