La Faba – (O Cebreiro) – Triacastela
25 kms (total: 673 kms).
6 hours and 10 minutes (+ 1h10 of breakfast and photo breaks).
9 – 22°C., sunny most of the day, windy on top of the mountain and overcast in the afternoon.
Favorites: slept wonderfully in my hanging bed at my favorite hostel of El Camino so far; watched the sun rise over the mountains while climbing to the 2nd and 3rd highest point of El Camino (O Cebreiro, 1.296 m., Alto do Poio, 1.337 m.); have Tatiana and Marlón walk along with me when I sure know they’re not walking at their usual pace; laughing at our own jokes the whole time; stopping every few steps to take fabulous pictures; sure spent today the most beautiful hike of El Camino; feeling exhausted after those long climbs up and down and so hyper and happy at the same time.
Downs: it’s almost the end… 😥 (No! We won’t think about it!)
Stayed at El Refugio (5€/night), at the end of the village, in La Faba. My absolute favorite since the beginning of the journey!
Met Maria Isabel & Gerardo from Guatemala, Marta & Luciano from Mexico on the trail (Viva Latino America!); met up with Pilar & Jesús in Triacastela.
Tomorrow is another day on El Camino! 🙂
