So far, amazing! A small number of walkers and occasionally a cluster of cyclists from Seville to Villafranca de los Barros. We have lost one at Zafra due to work commitments and one has a job interview so will leave tomorrow. All lovely people, even if there are limitations in language. The albergues are of excellent quality, especially the parish run Monesterio one (thank you again everyone there) and the Convent de San Francisco at Zafra (the dinner and breakfast were excellent and the convent atrium so peaceful). There has been no stress whatsoever in worrying whether we book ahead as many times we get a room all to ourselves. The weather cooled straight after the full moon last Sunday as everyone assured us it would and we have had perfect walking conditions until yesterday when the drizzly mist started. The wind is rising this afternoon and rain is due tonight but it should be clearing tomorrow. I love the scenery, so reminiscent of outback Australia especially the corridor through the red dirt before here. It felt like walking beside the rabbit proof fence. I’ll make the effort to keep you posted on our way to Santiago.I don't know the answer but I'd like to follow you, as I plan on walking the route again in the Spring.
Are you keeping a blog or could you do a "Today on the VDLP" thread here?
From my experience on the first two times I walked sections, it might be good to book beds in the larger cities and maybe call a few days ahead in the smaller villages. I believe there is a current lodging list in the resource section.
