Sun 18 Oct - Day 34: Barbadelo to Gonzar 26km
700km walked. 85km left to walk.
Today we are truly into Tourigrino territory. Why? Because today I broke the "less than 100km left to go" barrier. Which is the distance that most Tourigrinos only walk.
In addition, I also walked 700km (or more if you believe the markers along the Camino and put less emphasis on the guide book).
Deb and I left Casa Barbadelo around 7.30am after indulging in a bacon and eggs breakfast there which was really good.
The Galician weather proved to be as unpredictable as what I had understood it to be. It was supposed to be sunny with some clouds but it was overcast almost all day with small amounts of rain at times.
Is this a dunny? Perhaps not. Grain storage maybe? I would have liked it to be an outdoor dunny...
You can constantly see Spaniards skimming through ground covers to harvest them. I can understand why, as roasted chestnuts are really tasty. I've tried them a couple of times while walking the Camino.
is probably 100.5km.
You can see that marker from above to the left in this photo looking back to from where I walked from. So several meters further...
The river Rio Miño underneath the bridges can apparently get very wide as a lot of water gets collected by the river at times.
Blister update: well, the blister "bubble" that I had yesterday was "gone" before the end of the night without me noticing. A small blister returned today but caused me no discomfort whatsoever.
