    Walking alone

    The last few days I have reached a point where I genuinely prefer to walk alone. Before I started this journey I didn't really think about a preference, but I learnt that walking with other people can be easier. You chat and no longer think about time or distance or even fatigue and pain. On your own you need to just deal with it and move along.
    Yesterday I enjoyed walking most of the day by myself, in a newfound calmness. Just enjoying the landscape and sometimes listening to an audiobook or some music. I can walk my own tempo, break when I want and mostly just be with myself. Sometimes I feel a bit sad, which apparently is quite common for pilgrims, but I just let it be and keep walking. It doesn't turn into loneliness anymore... Strong body, strong mind?

    Finally they give tapas! Free food for every drink you order ;) That's what most of Spain usually is like! It is famous for its tapas.

    We learned more about the culture of Austurias. The way you drink cider is that you directly drink from the bottle. Otherwise you drink from glasses and you have to immediately drink your entire glass once it is poured in.Read more

    Got a nice hotel here after a lovely day of rambling. No other peregrinos at all, just me and the cats, cows and cur dogs. Oh and endless cows with huge bells. There is a festival here tonight when they erect a huge pole, really exceptionally tall pole with a flag on the top. Chopping it down, carrying it and erecting is all done to impress the ladies.
    I thought I might stay but I will walk on.
    I had two glasses of wine last night and took two Motrin before bed. It acted like speed, I think. It was a virtually sleepless night. Today will be interesting. I need to eat more, though I don't feel hungry most of the time.

    Eine sehr schöne Wanderung durch die Natur von Llanes nach Nueva.
    Die Mittagspause an einem herrlichem Sandstrand bei strahlenden Sonnenschein verbracht. Das ist Spanien und Camino pur wie es den Peregrinos gefällt.😉
    Heute in einem schönen Hostel unter gekommen und dort auf der Terrasse schön zu Abend gegessen. Dann noch den obligatorischen Feierabendtrunk zum Tagesausklang.😉
