Villatuerta – Los Arcos
24 kms (total: 192 kms)
6 hours and 15 minutes (+ 2h35 of lunch and photo breaks)
19 – 28°C., cloudy in the morning and very sunny in the afternoon.
Favorites: the guy who offered us figs, the wine fountain at 10 am, the shade in the morning, being able to keep being zero waste on El Camino at all times (even if it costs me a little extra weight), the « horse tree » on the picture above taken by Sophie, arriving in Los Arcos village and not needing to find lodgings as an older man offered us a room at his small guesthouse and gave us foot massage as soon as we entered!
Downs: the beating parching sun in the afternoon along the last 10 kms without anywhere in the shade; taking so much time on breaks; that little demon voice in the end pissing me off saying « why do you even walk? Your feet hurt, the village is still so far off, there’s no point in the whole thing… », having to think this through…
Stayed at La Casa Mágica, 5 calle Rebote (12€/night) in Villatuerta (heaven with hammocks, swimming-pool, yoga room!).
Met up with Noemie, Tim (Oz), Susan and Judy.
El Camino continues tomorrow… 🙂
