Those of you who follow me on Instagram will know that this summer (2019) I’m walking 200km along the Camino de Santiago, from Léon to Sarría in Spain. This is the fourth leg of the Camino which I started in 2016 (if you’re interested, I wrote a Q&A post in response to some of the questions people had asked me along the way that year), I’m completing a leg each summer until 2020. This is Day 34 (other posts linked at the end of this post).
Camino Frances Day 34: O’Cebreiro to Triacastela (approx 22 km)
Another “long” day after yesterday’s relative “rest” but made do-able because of the fairly flat terrain for most of the day, followed by a descent in the last few kilometres. It was a little bit of an eerie start up at O Cebreiro, that’s for sure! Thankfully I was well fuelled – see above!
Pressed on into the mist…
And had a friend who insisted I share…
And a blast from the past dessert…
Verdict: Sure, a longer day but easy terrain and fabulous photo opportunities make for an “easier” long day. It’s always better to walk ling distances when there are lovely views and pretty towns to walk through!
Stay tuned for the next leg – my last day walking for 2019!
Disclosure: I researched Camino trips independently and chose the Camino Travel Center based on a number of features such as flexibility to accommodate a couple of “splits” in some of the longer days, price and customer service. They were, in fact the first company I came across in my very first Google search and the one I ended up booking with. From the initial inquiry to the actual trips, they have been a pleasure to deal with and we have been very impressed with the service provided (bag transportation) and the accommodation choices. I was not compensated to write about this trip in any way but I love sharing companies and products I believe in with my readers. I couldn’t recommend the Camino Travel Center more and, in fact, am booking my last Camino walk with them for next summer (the summer I will finally reach Santiago!).
