24 kms (total: 484 kms).
5 hours and 25 minutes (+ 1h05 of lunch and photo breaks).
9 – 24°C., foggy in the morning, sunny around noon with a few clouds and a light breeze. Perfect walking conditions.
Favorites: slept pretty well after spraying my bed and sleeping-bag a few times; actually enjoyed walking by the moon light; hit my pace and went on, so much so that I found myself on automatic mode (my mind would have been able to sleep, had it been sure that my legs could find their way and keep going on their own!); arrived very early in Mansilla, could rest a bit before visiting.
Downs: started walking earlier than usual because everyone was up and loud in order to get ready and going fast to the next stop to find a bed; I don’t want to follow a race pace nor walk in the dark but today, I was ready, so I left; the landscape was nothing spectacular today, rather monotonous but I still enjoyed the view…
Stayed at the Albergue paroquial (night, diner and breakfast on donation), at the end of the village, in Bercianos.
Met up with Ama and Aranxa on the road; met Marlon (Brazil) and Tatiana again for diner, we had a wonderful time and I’m surprised to understand Portuguese from Brazil so well, after all!
Tomorrow is another day on El Camino! 🙂
