The feared straight track between Carrión and Calzadilla

The feared straight track between Carrión and Calzadilla
Feared!? why so-
its straightness left my mind to wander and I was lost in thought for hours...not a bell, a phone, no music, not even a beep from a washing machine... bliss
 
I found it lovely too, but for some people, the thought of facing a stretch like that is like an extreme exposure to "horror vacui". In via de la plata there is an even longer stretch between Villafranca and Torremejia.
 
Its an historic section of the Camino, the road dates from Roman times (over 2000 years ago). I have both cycled and walked this section. I love it.
 
You can go by horse carriage from Carrion, it costs 15 Euros, I think. Departure is from the outskirts of Carrion. I believe 8.30 AM, but check.
