Practically A Day Off


I barely budged today. My route was less than 10 km, from Cacabelos to Villafranca del Bierzo. This may be the most beautiful part of the route so far and if I’ve been through big Agro, big timber, and big wine, I guess I’d call Bierzo “big electricity”. There are wind farms and high voltage lines everywhere, and even a nuke plant but it doesn’t detract too much from the scenery. If you look closely you should be able to see the steam from the power plant. 

Tomorrow I’ll officially be in Galicia, home of queimada. It’s known as one of the more challenging stages of the Camino, 30+ km with a 700 meter climb at the end. I’ll spend it thinking, hoping, praying for E&J in WH.
