Today was a walk of only 25km but there was about 500m of climbing.
The day was mostly overcast with bits of sun coming through every now and then.
Early morning in Lubián
I left with Manolo from Seville and also with the Indian guy who’s name I still don’t know but he walks very fast and soon left us behind.
The path soon started to climb steeply up into the hills.
There are lots of ferns growing higher up .
At the top of the mountain ridge we had arrived in Galicia. This is the fourth and last Spanish region I will be walking through. I started in Andalusía, walked the full length of Extremadura and crossed western Castilla y Leon.
This display panel tells us that we have 210km left to get Santiago de Compostella
We stopped at a village bar for lunch
The countryside is very green – so different to my first 4 weeks of walking .
I’m told it rains a lot in Galicia.
There are similar old stone houses here to those I’ve seen over the last few days. This one has a big bulge in its wall
At the local hardware store – bells for all sized animals
Home cooked meal y Frank in the Albergue tonight!
What changes in the countryside Paul! So green and mossy.
Is it cold? I guess you dong feel cold as you’re moving along. How many kms have you travelled so far? Where are you going after this? What an experience! Look forward to tomorrow’s blog. Take care.
Hi Vicki I’ve ci weed about 800 km and should arrive on Santiago de Compostella on Thursday or Friday – lots of mountains to cross now
Thank you Paul… In a month I will start my own Camino – Via Sanabres. So with great pleasure I read your everyday posts trying to learn something new and useful about the route.
Buen camino and keep walking Paul!
(and sorry for my English…)
Thanks Tatiana your English is fine. Yesterday’s post is delayed as there as the Internet is very poor here
