Villares de Orbigo - Murias deRechivaldoSeptember 12 in Spain
21km today. Debated going another 5km but the sun stopped me. Legs prob could have made it but theres next to no shade to be found so gave up & checked in to Casa las Aguedas. Lovely walk in the morning but the heat gets too much past 1pm. Stopped in Astorga for lunch and to move bag on. I bypassed Astorga as for now I'm happier staying in these smaller towns. Another pilgrims meal on the way. Nice to sit and connect with pilgrims over a meal.
Taking another alternative route in the morning on recommendations from others so lets see what that brings. Apparantly theres a 1,200metre climb to come! Having let go of planning for this trip i didnt realise they put a hill in there!Read more
