    Day 43: Botos - Silleda (16 km) It's warm lately. But I don't complain, it's just that we weren't expecting 30 degrees in Galicia. There are plenty of water taps along the way, where in the south (Extremadura) you sometimes can't refill for 25 km, here every small village has a drinking water...

    Day 42: O Reino - Botos (24 km) There was some panic amongst the peregrinos in our hostal last night. According to the owner there is a race event in Lalín and all the accommodations around were fully booked. According to her even the albergues hosted non-peregrinos. She called around to to...

    Day 40: Xunqueira - Ourense (24 km) After a few nice kilometres from Xunqueira you follow a tarmac road which lead in more urban area's and industry. There is not much worth mentioning. We had an apartment in Ourense in the center of town. We went to the river to soak in a hotspring... The...

    Birds of the vía de la plata part 4 It gets harder to capture new birds on camera. Less big birds up north and the ones 'left' are more rare, shy or very movable... 😏😬 But here is part 4 (with a few doubles)

    @J Willhaus all the best with that, we met one peregrino with such a CPAP machine. Did not speak to him about it, but was interesting to see...

    Day 38: Lasa - Vilar de Barrio (21 km) It only took 15 minutes until we decided to pick up our matresses and move to the living room. The only other man in our dorm started snoring so loud that we knew we would not get any sleep that night. So we woke up the next morning on the floor, but we...

    O Pereiro - Campobecerros (32 km) We had a late start today. The hotel was serving breakfast from 9h. From the hotel we did not walk back to the camino, but followed the N525 until A Gudiña. Normally I'm not a fan of road walking but it saved some kms and there was no traffic. If 5 cars passed...

    Day 34: Puebla de la Sanabria - Padornelo (22 km) When we walked into Puebla de la Sanabria we did not know where to stay. All the hotels are expensive and the albergue did not get great reviews. But the first place you see is the albergue, so we walked in to have a look and it did not look...

    Day 32: Rionegro del Puente - Entrepeñas (26 km) Day 33: Entrepeñas - Puebla de Sanabria (19 km) Just a short update this time (well not really 😉) . We are waiting for the washing machine to finish and then we head out to act as tourists as the village supposed to be very pretty. We are in...

    Day 30: Villanueva de las Peras - Calzadilla de Tera (22 km) I caught a pretty nasty cold during the windy and rainy days. Today my legs brought me to the next village but my head was somewhere in a foggy, damp place. The route today was nice and sunny. Mostly along a river with small farm...

    Thank you for this update. That albergue looked very nice indeed. But as I wrote, we opted for a hotel bed as we both weren't in great shape. 🥴

    Day 29: Tábara - Villanueva de las peras (14 km) Oh boy... that was a hard day yesterday! We stayed in a double in Hotel Roble (€48) as I felt I was developing a cold and did not want to stay in a chilly dorm. Roble also has an albergue (€10 for a bed in an unheated dorm) and serves a meal for...

    Day 28: Granja de Moreruela - eehhh.... Tábara (27 km) Surprise! We changed our mind 🤭 what a night of sleep can do... It sometimes gives little insights of what you didn't see the day before. I put it on the table while having breakfast in the bar. I dó value the relative quietness of the...

    Day 26: Zamora - Montamarta (20 km) Zamora is a nice town with a historic Roman center. After the long walk we managed to squeeze some more energy and walked to the cathedral to pay it a visit and get another sello. After we met with some other peregrino's to have a meal together we went to...

    Day 24: Salamanca - Calzada de Valdunciel (16 km) What happened with the weather today? We spent a sunny and warm easter weekend in Salamanca but this morning on the road the thermometer just read 6 degrees Celcius. It was suddenly cold, windy and rainy. We were able to skim just over 4kg...

    Day 23: Morille - Salamanca (20 km) This shorter stage was more challenging than we expected. It was hot and not much shade. You mostly walk on gravel roads through farm fields. Entering Salamanca took much longer than expected and we both had no energy this day. Last 2h I developed shin pain...
