El Camino – Day 20

El Camino Day 20, to Villalcazar, SpainBoadilla del Camino – Villalcàzar de Siga

19 kms (total: 410 kms), taking the alternative route by the river rather than following the road.

4 hours and 18 minutes (+ 1h10 of breakfast and photo breaks).

9 – 21°C., sunny all day.

Favorites: finished my paperback and left it at the hostal for the next pilgrim who can read in French (« Mapuche » by Caryl Ferrey is a sordid thriller based on true facts related to the dictatorship in Argentina, it is breath-taking, hard-core but sometimes also magical); waking up for sunrise again; walking by the canals and watch the fumes rise above the water; meet Maggie who tells me about the alternative route by the river; walk there on my own while seeing other pilgrims follow the road; enjoy the walk again, the smells, colors and sounds of nature around me; arrive early at the village before the big city and get a bed first in a nice hostal with garden.

Downs: I unfortunately believe the bed-bugs follow me so I must wash everything up once more; getting paranoid at every itch; don’t sleep that well in spite of lights out at 9 p.m.;

Stayed at Albergue Titas (10€/night), at the end of the village in Boadilla.

Met Maggie (Oz) who was celebrating her 70th birthday with her friends Annie and Tanis (GB), and David (US) and his gang.

Met up with the same girls, Maggie and her gang, at the hostel today.

  1. walk there on my own while seeing other pilgrims follow the road; enjoy the walk again, the smells, colors and sounds of nature around me – Now that’s something that one would imagine doing before doing it… 🙂

  2. Sounds like the good day we expected! Aussies are like bed bugs – you never know when and where we’ll turn up. Hope we don’t drive you mad though 😉

Parlons-en!
