Camino(s) past & future
2017 2018
Got into Padrifita do Cabreiro last night by bus @ 2am .Walked up to O Cabreiro in the dark and slept in porch of Santa Maria Church, it was cold and I had only a micro sleeping bag with my rain cape to lay on. I slept in my cloths and managed to get some broken sleep.
I was awoken to the plesent sound of early perigrinos . I had welcome caffe con leche in a bar and met some perigrinos. I would say about 40 stayed in O Cebreiro last night ,some spanish and fellow europeans.
I walked to Tricastala 21 km. It was a lovely day,it was great to meet others. I enclose pics.

I wondered how you were doing! I'm impressed! How long did it take you to walk from Pedrefita O'Cebreiro to O'Cebreiro in the dark? Is it steep like the the path from La Laguna de Castilla?
It took me just a bit over an hour as it was dark but I had small torch.The path goes through the woods another by road.I took the woods one as shorter,after a bit I was getting worried as I was finding it so so tough,then I realised I still had mask on since the bus :) then dogs started barking as they picked up my scent and I got a bit worried as i was thinking,are dogs let out at nighttime? Then a taught came to me,would there be Bears here? as i have read recently of bears being re introduced to Gallicia. After awhile the path joined the road and it was easier and it was a lovely starry night and the stars were spectacular up there..

As your heart was going into your mouth while you were climbing (masked!), so was mine while I was reading, wonderIng would you make it in one piece...
