    A looooong day

    June 3, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    I decided to do a 30 km walk today which usually wouldn't take me more than 5-7 hours, but because of the terrain and lots of ups and downs I was walking for over 10 hours.
    The trail was very overgrown in parts, and many parts were very rocky and steep, which made it very slow going.
    I decided to do this long walk because the weather was really good for it - temperatures in the 70s and partly cloudy. And there's a good chance of rain tomorrow, so I'm glad that I did it today, even though I'm very tired.
    Since I crossed over into Asturias today, which is known for its sidra (cider) I'm having dinner in a sidreria.

    Bendeunos To Pola de Lena

    October 3, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ☁️ 11 °C

    It was a great little albergue last night in the mountains, and I had a good breakfast of cereal and coffee that was put there by Sara the great hospitalerio.

    It was an extra 1.5 kilometres to get back to the trail signs from the albergue. Our trail friend Nicholas is pushing on an e tea amount today, since he is anxious to continue onto the Primitivo way. Nicholas has been a great fellow perigrino. Buen Camino Nicholas!

    Juan and I have taken a shorter day stopping in Pola de Lena. A nice town with all the services. Juan found a great menu del did place. It started with oxtail lentil soup that was to die for, followed by pork cutlets, and for poster a fantastic cheese cake! Of course a bottle of wine with it all for less than a Big Mac and fries at home.

    It is a lovely municipal albergue here. Juan found a game of chess here and has challenged me tonight!

    After we went out for cider which is famous here. The have a particular way of pouring it. (See video)

    Anyway getting closer to Oviedo.

    Poladura To Pajares

    October 1, 2019 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    Set out early this morning, and the sun rise in the mountains was fantastic. Again it was up up up. At the summit today, the views where fantastic. Our little group had great fun taking photos up there. Nicholas from Sweden had a fancy GoPro that he could control with his phone.

    The second half of the day was down down down. It was a short distance, but took a lot of time on the narrow trails.

    Today we also entered the province of Asturias.
