I am impressed - Astorga to El Acebo ? That would be a long day for me. I didn't walk my first Camino until I was 71.
Try to go back when you have more days and see some of the places you missed. You have many years ahead of you to do that.
Six years? Sounds like it is time for you to get back there and do it again.
Just watched Ivar's latest video. Looks like Spain is finally starting to open up. It is my intent to return next April.
