    Our camino is over for this year. Plasencia is as far as we got but what a beautiful place. As an aside, if you need a cooling break from the camino in summer head to the Valle de Jerte. It has numerous rivers and natural pools for wild swimming. In conclusion our advice for vegan peregrinos on...

    Also, Ocho Artes in Cáceres went out of their way to give us a great vegan tapas feast at the weekend.

    Had a good night in Casar de Cáceres in a very reasonable apartment just off the main street. We were supposed to walk to the Embalse Alcántara today but there was no accommodation so we deviated to Santiago del Campo to stay at Casa Rural Julio Vegas which is fantastic. Be aware though, local...

    We're in Cáceres for the weekend, hoping for some variety in our diet which has consisted of canned pisto, a vegetable stew, and lentejas /garbanzos. Everywhere, even the tiniest shop has sold soya milk. Just for tea for those of you who have soy anxieties. The best advice we can give so far is...

    In Mérida now, a big city after the little towns. A veggie restaurant with lots of vegan options, Shangri-la was most welcome. Almazara hostel the night before was fantastic except for the mosquitos and the misleading map on 'Booking'. It's 4 clicks out of town, not on the main street as they...

    We had a restful weekend in the lovely Zafra in a very reasonable flat on the Plaza Grande. Carrefour provided vegan treats. Only 5k today as I had to buy a new rucksack. Tonight at Pensión Michey in Los Santos de Maimona.

    A night in Monesterio last night. Hostal DP El Pilar was good, basic and quiet but no kitchen. Soya milk available at Eroski but very little to eat at local restaurants. We improvised by adding lupin beans and avocado, bought in a local shop, to a huge tomato salad. The friendly owner also made...

    In El Real tonight at Hostal La Encina. A bit pissed off at the price 60 euros for a double in a place situated in an industrial estate! No kitchen and nothing and nowhere to eat in town. But... soya milk in the local shop plus enough ingredients to make burritos. A tough walk today, hot and hilly.

    We take tea seriously. In Almadén tonight, soya milk here in the local shop but not much to eat in cafés, lots closed due to the virus. Casa Concha did us a red pepper salad, asparagus mix and chips. The walk through the national park was lovely. Peaceful and quiet, the air scented with...

    Cooler today with thunderstorms and rain. We left Guillena after breakfast, fruit and soya yoghurt with a few brews and, after an unpleasant few miles on a busy road turned onto a track most of the rest of the way into Castilblanco. Going out for chips and beer shortly to discuss our options fir...

    Began today. Had to get credencials from the cathedral library as Hotel Simon and Triana Backpackers were closed. Had a great breakfast at Milk Away and good meals at Arte de Sabor and Misushi. Soya milk and yoghurt available widely in Sevilla. Today a very, very hot walk too late in the day to...
